Why invest in a Building Inspection

When you are making the kind of financial and emotional investment that is required when purchasing a property it makes perfect sense that you should know exactly what you are buying.

While you can definitely get a feel for a place when you walk in the door, unless you possess ‘super powers’ you have no way of knowing what is going on behind the walls, inside the roof and under the structure.


Hire a professional

The best way to answer crucial questions like whether the structure is sound, is there termite activity, is the wiring safe, is there damp in the wall or asbestos anywhere, is to have the property professionally checked by a qualified and accredited builder who can provide a detailed building report on his findings. As a home owner or as a person looking to purchase a building or house, having a property inspection will be essential to ascertain whether or not it is stable enough to be inhabited. Structural defects could lead to your home or building losing value in the market. For peace of mind and to protect against financial losses and further investment it really is worth engaging a building inspection conducted by someone that is experienced and specialises in this time of detection.
