What our Clients Say
Why should I get a building inspection?
Selling or buying a home will be one of the largest financial transactions you’ll make in your life. The last thing you want is to discover you’ll lose thousands, even tens of thousands more, repairing structural problems you didn’t know existed.
Pre-purchase building and pest inspections ensure you can negotiate the best price for your home, whether you’re the vendor or the buyer.
Not all problems are visible, but there are some obvious red-flags you should watch out for.
5 warning signs you need a building and pest inspection
Paint that is flaking or peeling from surfaces may be a sign of something as simple as poor preparation or exposure to the elements. However, there could be a more serious cause, such as rising damp or water leaks.
Creaky or sagging floors
Carpets and floor coverings might look great, but what about the floors beneath them? Floors that sag, move or make noise may be due to floorboards and joists damaged by water, termites or sheer age.
Most houses experience minor cracks over time, but some cracks signify serious structural damage. This can be caused by a number of things, such as subsidence, tree roots, poor workmanship, even vibration from heavy traffic.
Sticky doors or windows
Are the doors and windows easy to open and close? If not, this might be a sign of anything from too many layers of paint, to water damage or structural defects that have warped the surrounding framework.
Stains and discolouration
Any areas that have darker patches can indicate water leaks, mould or rising damp. The location of stains can help identify if there are problems caused by damage to the roof, plumbing, subfloors or drainage.
Many of these problems can be glossed over with some sanding and a fresh coat of paint to fool an untrained eye. But this is only superficial and temporary fix. It doesn’t address the underlying causes and problems will only get worse.
