Building Defect Inspections

There are a wide range of reasons why you would need to book Building Defect Inspections. Among the most common of these are listed below – and you’ll also find some samples of our truly comprehensive reports, highlighting our extensive use of digital photography.

We know that some people can be a little reluctant to order building defect inspections. This is often through a hope that any problem might solve itself, or remain at a low level. Sadly, such wishes rarely come true. It’s also the case that it can feel that it’s ‘better not knowing’. It isn’t!

The key is often to spot a problem at as early a stage as possible; before the costs of any remedial work tend to shoot upwards at an alarming rate. And, if it is less serious than you imagined, then a little peace of mind would surely be welcome.
