You could do your own informal home inspection and even invite a friend along that knows more about buildings that you do. This is definitely better than no inspection at all.
Often when you are looking to buy a house, you don’t spend more than a few minutes in the house and you only see what’s on display. You don’t get the opportunity to have a detailed look at the entire superstructure or climb onto or inside the roof which is where most of the potentially more expensive defects lurk.
Our inspectors have inspected hundreds of homes and do this every day. We’ve seen every trick in the book and have the knowledge and experience to know what to look for.
Besides reporting on the visible defects, we can also identify issues that may create a problem in the future if not attended to in time. This can save you money and hassle in future repairs.
Because we inspect houses of various ages and varieties and constantly keep up to date with the trends in the building industry, we’re the best equipped to give you a report that tells you everything you need to know about the property and what needs to be done to repair and maintain it.
