Building your home is a huge responsibility and as a first timer you’re facing a plethora of technical and legal difficulties in the months to come. It’s easy to become overwhelmed at the size of the challenge and to forget steps along the way. To ensure that your building experience is positive and disaster free, invest in an under construction building inspection.

What is an under construction inspection?

Let’s be honest, there’s builders out there who don’t have the best track record. We hear far too often of issues stemming from shoddy workmanship which are only realised far too late, leaving homeowners forced to live with the bad results or pay thousands for the repairs.

Most people prefer to take hands on approach in the earlier planning stages, ensuring the home is built to meet your unique needs and personal taste, but then leave the rest in the hands of the builder. This is taking a massive risk.

Wouldn’t you like to ensure the most crucial parts of your home are being built to the highest standards? Safeguard your home and protect your investment with expert independent inspections throughout the construction process.

Under construction building inspections are structured to confirm that proper building methods, and quality workmanship is being implemented during the building process. These comprehensive inspections include extensive scrutiny on your new home and of the finished product as a whole.

In order to guarantee the quality of your construction, we conduct a series of staged inspections that coincide with the progress payments you make to your builder. To understand how these inspections benefit you, it’s important to first understand the key areas that are covered in the different stages of our under construction inspections.

What are the phases of construction?

Phase 1: Slab and site
This initial inspection ensures the dimensions of the slab are accurate, there are no cracks and the plumbing is properly place.

Phase 2: Brickwork
This stage focuses only on the brickwork, ensuring it is adequately waterproofed, structurally sound and consistently finished throughout the home.

Phrase 3: First floor
This phrase covers any consecutive storeys you add on, making sure the high quality of construction is carried our across all floors.
