Every cost matters. This is especially true whether you are a first time homebuyer or a property investor. Every issue that needs to be addressed comes directly out of your pocket. These costs can be significant depending on the structural condition and integrity of the property.
Undetected structural issues also pose a liability, especially when health and personal safety are at risk.
Knowing these details is absolutely important before you continue with a property deal.
Even renovators needs to be aware of potential structural issues before continuing with home renovations.
New constructions may be affected or even halted altogether depending on how severe the structural damage is. The cost for a building inspection pales in comparison to how much it would cost for major repairs in the future.
All the residential structural inspections we carry out adhere to the AS 4349.1-2007 Australian building inspection standards.
Adam responded to my request to check the cracks in our 40 year old brick veneer. His inspection was far more comprehensive than I had expected and I was very impressed by the level of care and attention detail. Adam listened to my concerns and I felt that he understood that I was unclear about what needed to be prioritised in terms of repairs. After his inspection, Adam provided good explanation the issues that clarified the state of the house. I am now able to go ahead with the renovations with much greater degree of confidence. We are very grateful to Adam and his team. I highly recommend Melbourne Civil and Structural Engineers.Julia Timson - Melton West - VIC
