Sydney building defects inspections and reports are an essential part of property buying. If you are looking at purchasing a new home, then it is vital to have a building inspection done to ensure that there are no defects or faults with the property.
Extensive Knowledge Of Our Inspectors
The building inspector has a lot of knowledge and experience in the field. They have been working in this field for years and have a wealth of information about building defects, problems, solutions and general information about the construction process. This means that they know what to look for during an inspection and what is essential to focus on when completing your report. The building inspector’s extensive knowledge allows them to effectively communicate their findings with you so that you can make informed decisions about your property.
A building report will include information about the properties:
- age and type
- location, address and boundaries of land, including any easements or encroachments on the land
- number of storeys and height above ground level if applicable
- Dimensions of each room, including length, width and area (square metres), and a sketch plan showing all rooms. We will provide a floor plan instead of a room-by-room breakdown.
There is no standard for what we should include in a building report. This depends largely upon who has commissioned it and what they wish to know about it. However, most reports provide detailed descriptions of issues. Such as water penetration into walls or floors, leaking roofs, maintenance issues such as blocked gutters or downpipes etc.
No Conflicts Of Interest
Many people must realize that a conflict of interest can also be highly damaging to their business, and they often overlook the possibility when making decisions. A conflict of interest is defined as an instance where a person or organization is involved in multiple interests, financial. Or otherwise, one of which could corrupt the motive or decision of that individual or organization.
When you hire someone to inspect your building for defects, they must be utterly unbiased so you can trust their findings. If there were any conflicts of interest between yourself and the inspector, it would become difficult to tell whether their analysis was objective and accurate.
Hire our First-Rate Inspections for your building defects inspection needs instead of choosing another firm with potential conflicts of interest. For example, builders’ associations or insurance companies may be vested in specific outcomes. You’ll always know exactly what kind of report we will deliver with our service.
Ability To Attend Inspections
You must be present at the building inspection. As a homeowner, you want to know what is going on with your property and what needs to be fixed or replaced. When you hire a home inspector, they will make sure that someone from their team attends each inspection so they can answer any questions that come up during the process.
Weekend inspections are available.
If your job gets busy during the week and it’s hard for you to take time off work, an after-hours appointment may be more suitable for your schedule. Our inspectors are happy to accommodate these types of requests as well as weekend appointments whenever possible. We know how important this information is for our clients who are trying their best with repairs and keeping up with their daily lives.

Identify Hidden Defects
A building inspector will inspect your home and identify any defects they may find. They will then report on them, which is helpful if you plan on selling the property in the future.
We can conduct the inspection process at any point during a property’s life cycle and after it has been refurbished or repaired. The defects we identify depend on many factors, such as age, use and location. However, certain common problems can be found in all properties:
- The foundations may differ from one another or surrounding land (known as settlement).
- The walls could be poorly braced or poorly constructed (for example, using inferior materials).
- The roof structure might have needed to have been appropriately designed for its intended use. For example, a flat roof usually offers less protection against water damage than a pitched one. That is due to poor drainage methods during construction/refurbishment work. This could lead to leakage problems later down the track when using rainwater tanks, so check before buying one!
Avoid Maintenance Issues
To avoid maintenance issues, it is essential to have your building inspected and reported regularly. A Sydney building inspection will identify problems before they become major concerns. This means you can deal with them early before they become more expensive to fix.
A report and inspection from a professional inspector will also tell you how much a repair will cost so that you know whether the issue needs immediate attention or can wait until later. Additionally, the report may include recommendations for future repairs that could help prevent further damage from occurring over time.
Assess Health And Safety Risks
Many factors needs consideration when it comes to the safety of a building. Health and safety issues can arise from defects such as holes in walls, ceilings and floors or water damage. If a property has these issues, it can be hazardous for occupants and cause physical injury or illness. To ensure that your home is safe, you need an expert inspection by our team. We will be able to identify these risks to address them before they become serious problems. If there are any health risks, we recommend getting testing done by qualified professionals if necessary.
