Our inspections include driveways and paths, fencing, surface drainage, and structural elements on outdoor dwellings such as garages, verandahs, patios, decks and carports. We check the condition of rooves, fascia and gables, and look for issues such as dampness and cracking in masonry. Our inspectors check for the existence of asbestos, the condition of window frames and sills, rusting on handrails and balustrades, and the condition of guttering.
Wet areas such as kitchens, toilets and bathrooms are checked for evidence of poor or absent water-proofing, inadequate ventilation, poor water pressure, cracking to tiles and shower bases, and water pressure issues.
