Building a new home or renovating a house is a complex process. Most builders are reliable, but even the most reputable can’t be 100% perfect. Reap the benefits of our experienced Building Inspectors’ independent expert advice and you can rest assured that your new home construction or home renovations conform to building codes and are completed to a good standard.
If you are starting a new home construction and need independent advice we provide inspections, reports, photographs and references to building codes at all the main stages. This includes a final inspection (also called Practical Completion or Handover) listing defects and incomplete works. Stages include:
