Many people wonder why they need a building inspection. A building inspection report will take a closer look at your potential property before you buy, and inform you if there are any significant building problems such as rising damp, cracking within the building, and any faults or safety hazards. Being aware before your purchase your property means you can avoid any severe problems that you can’t see on a cosmetic level; and then if you know there are minimal problems, you can budget to fix those down the track or talk down the price of the home. A building inspection report is just one of the any things you should consider before you purchase your property.
Gather the information to make robust investments
A pre-purchase building inspection should be a top priority when seriously considering buying a new home. This particular service is a speciality of the Look Sharp Inspections team, and we have many years of experience in identifying potential problems. This comprehensive service can reassure buyers in a variety of areas, including mould, structural integrity, pests and asbestos. Importantly, our team will evaluate the building in context of its surroundings which may contribute to problems. Should any serious hazards be identified, then Look Sharp Inspections will be only too happy to offer you some expert advice on how to go about finding the best solution.
Trust our meticulous team to seek out pests
Look Sharp Inspections is the first name in pest and termite inspections. It is no secret that an infestation of termites in the foundations of your home can be an absolute nightmare, if left to spread. Unfortunately, to the untrained eye, the subtle symptoms of a termite problem can be easily overlooked. Early detection of termite infestation is essential to minimise large scale structural damage and repair costs, which is why the team at Look Sharp Inspections recommends an annual inspection to ease your mind. We also offer termite inspection as part of our pre-purchase inspection service, giving you the confidence that your brand new home is going to be a solid investment. Our thorough team performs timber tapping, as well as visually inspecting the areas that are vulnerable to pests, such as beneath the home, in the roof and behind the plaster.
Be confident in your build with our tick of approval
A new home is one of the most significant assets that we own, and so it makes sense to ensure your investment is a sound one. Look Sharp Inspections provides a popular four stage inspection service which monitors progress of new builds. This is particularly valuable, as it allows our inspectors to catch potential issues before they create problems and while they can still be fixed. Each process involved in erecting a building has a multitude of risks, and so it never hurts to have an extra pair of eyes to check everything is in order. While we like to put full faith in our builders, sometimes there are ulterior motives in place for finishing the build to a deadline or on a low budget. Our inspectors will visit your site from a neutral perspective and be able to offer an honest and expert assessment.
The sooner the better for special purpose inspections
Special purpose inspections are carried out when a homeowner is concerned about one particular feature or area. An example might be a crack that has recently increased in a load bearing wall, or if you are noticing that wooden beams are beginning to warp. At the first sign of change, it is a wise choice to contact Look Sharp Inspections and explain the situation. Structural issues can be immediately dangerous, and may require urgent attention. Our team will offer you their recommendations for repair should a problem be identified.
We can offer instant pre-sale inspections
The process of selling a home can all happen very quickly. For this reason, the Look Sharp Inspections team will prioritise clients who are time limited. We perform complete pre-sale inspections within 24 hours of your call, meaning that there is no excuse to avoid arranging an appointment. Keep in mind that an impressive report from our highly esteemed business will immediately reassure your buyers of their rock-solid investment. With 25 years of on the job experience, our inspection professionals are well qualified for the job at hand.
