SERVICE OVERVIEW

Embarking on the journey of building your dream home is an exciting yet complex process. At The Home Inspection Hub, we understand the significance of this venture and the desire for everything to align perfectly with your vision. Our commitment is to provide you with peace of mind and expert guidance with tailored new home inspections for each stage of construction.

Our team, comprised of seasoned Building Inspectors and accredited Architects, brings a wealth of hands-on experience to the table. We recognise that not everyone is familiar with the intricacies of the construction process or the jargon used in the building industry. That’s where we step in – to bridge the gap between your vision and the technical aspects of new home construction.

Rather than leaving you in the dark, The Home Inspection Hub offers a comprehensive and professional package of ‘new home stage inspections’ tailored to meet your specific needs. Our approach involves conducting separate inspections at the conclusion of each critical construction stage. This meticulous inspection process ensures that your house is not only being built to plan but also to the highest standards of quality and safety.

Our commitment to your peace of mind extends beyond the construction phases. In addition to stage-specific inspections, we also provide a Contract Review and Maintenance Inspection as part of our holistic package.

The Contract Review is designed to offer clarity and transparency, ensuring that all contractual elements align with your expectations. Meanwhile, the Maintenance Inspection is geared towards preserving the long-term integrity of your investment by identifying potential issues before they escalate.

The Home Inspection Hub is more than a service provider; we are your partners in the construction journey. With our team by your side, you can navigate the complexities of building a new home with confidence. Talk to an expert today regarding your new home stage inspections.

ESSENTIAL STAGE INSPECTIONS

Base Stage

Frame Stage

Lock-up/ Pre Plaster

Final Inspection (PCI)

Base Stage – This stage is inspected before the concrete is poured. This enables the inspector to check that the workmanship is to an acceptable standard and that good quality control measures are in place.

Frame Stage – At this stage, the frame has been completed and approved by the building surveyor.

Lockup/Pre-Plaster Stage– At this stage, the roof coverings are fixed, external doors and windows are fixed, even if temporaritly. Wall cladding may be only partly complete and will be inspected at future stages, depending on the build process.

Fixing Stage – At this stage, internal cladding, architraves, skirting, doors, sinks, cabinets and cupboards are now fixed into position.

Final Inspection (PCI)  – this inspection occurs before the keys are handed over.

The Home Inspection Hub offers inspections for the important stages in the construction process. This means that any defects or issues can be discovered early by your Inspector. You can be sure that if your Inspector finds poor workmanship at a specific inspection stage, they will assess it again at the next stage to see that it has been corrected.

The Hub carries out inspections on the key stages of new home construction, including Base, Frame, Lock-up/ Pre Plaster, Fixing and Final Inspection (PCI).

To complement the full package, we have also introduced a Contract Review inspection prior to the commencement of the build. With this type of inspection, an independent Inspector can identify any challenges in the contract. The Inspector can also provide advice on issues that may require explaining between the builder and the owner.

The Hub can also conduct a Maintenance inspection before the end of your 3 month maintenance/ warranty period. During this period, a builder must repair any additional defects that may appear. This includes minor defects such as doors or windows that do not close properly, or movement and cracking in floors or in the cornice.

A Building Surveyor will need to issue a building permit and final occupancy permit.
