Many home owners do not realize that they need to have periodic inspections performed if they are having any renovation work done on their properties. Although most registered builders are honest and reliable, even they can make mistakes from time to time, which is why it is recommended that you consult with us about having renovation inspection performed on your home.
Enjoy Peace of Mind
When approaching our company to have renovation inspections performed on your home, you can be assured of enjoying complete peace of mind in knowing that all of the work will be done according to current building and safety standards. Our inspectors all have an extensive level of experience in the building and construction industry, which means that they know exactly what to look for, and although they can be contacted to assist at any time during the renovation process, it is recommended that they be hired before the first round of renovations begins.
How Our Renovation Inspection Process Can Help You
Our renovation inspectors will inspect everything being done on your property with a fine tooth comb to ensure that absolutely nothing is of a substandard quality. They will also ensure that everything is being constructed according to the agreed upon building plans, as well as according to current Australian Standards and Building Codes. After all of the inspections have been performed, you will be provided with a typed report listing all items and issues that will need to be attended to and rectified by the builder.
Most Common Errors Noted During Renovations
Although the types of violations and errors that are noted during renovations will vary from one property to another, these are some of the most commonly cited building issues:
- Floors not being built to specification
- Floors being cast in the incorrect sizes
- Floors that have not been levelled properly
- Windows that do not latch or close fully
- Doors that have not been correctly planed, resulting in them not opening and closing properly
- Insufficient or no allowance being made for essential plumbing pipes
- Incorrect number of brick courses
- Brick laying work that is not up to the required standard
- Roof covering has not been installed according to required safety specifications
- Power points have been situated too close to wash basins and/or kitchen sinks
- Kitchen and/or bedroom cupboards have not been well made or improperly installed
Although these problems will not be present with all home renovations, there is always the possibility that they might, which is why it is recommended that thorough inspections be performed while the renovations are taking place.
