Houspect inspectors will help you avoid the tricks of the trade and give you independent advice.

Make sure you get what you paid for with renovations and property improvements, by calling Houspect for expert inspections and defects reports.

Whether you are renovating your entire home or flipping an investment property, restoring or updating your property to a more modern style, redesigning for more space by building an extension, or just remodelling the bathroom or kitchen, a building renovation can present challenges for even the most competent builder or DIY renovator. It is important to ensure that everything is built to current building practice, is compliant with the National Construction Code (NCC) and Australian Standards and of good quality workmanship.

Whatever stage your construction is – base/slab down, frame, lock up/pre-plaster, fixing or practical completion call us for advice and to book an inspection. If a dispute is looming with your trades, get advice from Houspect so the issues can be resolved and you can sleep better at night.

Houspect provides professional independent Renovation Inspections and Reports across greater Melbourne and regional Victoria including Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong, Warragul and surrounding areas.

What Does the Renovation Inspection Report Provide?

Our inspection reports will list all defects, incomplete works and alert you to rip offs and poor building practice or irregularities with the workmanship. Beware, some renovators are not licensed trades and may try to avoid this fact by making you the owner-builder to get around the Victorian building regulations.

Our expert report details any problems or defects that need to be rectified by the building contractor, describing the issues in clear, simple language for you. Photographs are included with the report along with the relevant building codes and standards for easy reference by you and the renovation company. A Glossary of Technical Terms is included to assist your comprehension.

The report can be used in discussions with your builder to ensure any problems or defects are rectified, so as to help you avoid costly repairs afterwards. If a dispute does arise, our independent report can also be used during the resolution process.
