Construction Inspection & Report

Professional Construction, New Home & Renovation Inspectors – Why Inspect?

Building a new home or renovating an existing house is a complex process. Sometimes mistakes happen that you may not discover until it’s too late. Most builders are reputable but even the most reliable builder will make an error occasionally. A Houspect construction inspection lets you rest assured that your home is being built to the proper standards.

Stages of Construction Inspections

Houspect Building Inspections have a range of construction inspections to ensure that the method of construction and workmanship on your project are in accordance with Australian and Industry standards. Inspections are usually timed in accordance with the various stages, however we can be called upon at any time you need help.

What a construction inspection provides:

  • We check that all the work completed is in accordance with the building plans.
  • We check that all components of the building comply with current Australian Standards and Building Codes.
  • We ensure that the workmanship is at an industry standard.
  • We prepare a typed report listing all items to be rectified by the builder. This report is a legal document and can be used as evidence in court if necessary.
  • For your peace of mind, our inspectors will ensure you are really getting what you have requested and paid for from the builder.

The following are some errors revealed by our building inspectors during construction:

  • Floor not to specification
  • Floor incorrect size
  • Floor lower than datum point
  • No allowance for plumbing pipes
  • Wrong number of brick courses
  • Brick laying sub-standard
  • Roof frame held together with string (true story)
  • Roof covering not installed to manufacturers specification
  • Power points too close to wash basin
  • Kitchen cupboards not installed to a good standard of workmanship
  • These problems do not occur in all houses, we are in business to ensure it doesn’t happen in your home.
