Structural Building Inspection

Houspect Structural Inspections are used to determine the structural soundness of a property or to identify potential structural and/or engineering issues, to help you make property decision with confidence.

Our independent inspection advises you on the structural soundness of key building elements. You may be a property buyer needing peace of mind or a vendor needing advice on how to fix your property before it goes on the market. You may be a home owner wondering if you can add an extension or whether to knock down and re-build.

The main advantage for a buyer going to auction is that Houspect can provide you with the core information about the structure at a reduced inspection fee. If you want details about repairs and maintenance, outbuildings, paving, fencing, pool, etc then you should consider our full residential Pre-Purchase Building Inspection

We provide Building Inspections & Structural Inspections in greater Melbourne, Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong, Warragul and surrounding regional areas.

What Does the Report Provide?

A Houspect Structural Building Inspection Report is a thorough, independent document completed in accordance with the Australian Standard 4349.0.

On a Structural Building Inspection, our qualified Building Inspector will identify and report on existing structural defects within the main building, i.e. stumps and sub-floor or slab, walls and cladding, roof cover and related components such as chimneys, flashings, valleys, gutters. We will advise you on any concerns with cracking to walls, sagging to the roof, roof framing, unstable chimneys, deteriorated roof tiles, rusted or inadequate flashing, gutters, downpipes and balconies so you can make decisions about a property with your eyes open. The report also contains a Glossary of Technical Terms to assist you in understanding your report results.
