Certified Building Inspections

What’s included in our building inspection report?

A house inspection report from Site Inspections will assess the conditions of your prospective property, so you can feel confident you’re making the right choice before you purchase a home.

It’s an informative and in-depth report that covers the details you need to know, including a description of the property and the materials used in its construction. Our professionals carry out an inspection to advise you against any significant structural and other damage, so you know about the work that needs to be carried out.

Report Example

The building inspector will report on all accessible parts of the house, including:

  • The interior
  • All external brickwork walls and cladding
  • Fascia, gutters, eaves and roof areas

The equipment we use to conduct building inspections

The team at Site Inspections are here to help you gain perfect confidence that your home, or home-to-be, is in the state it needs to be. Not every issue can be diagnosed by sight and expertise alone. There are a range of potential issues that require specialised equipment to spot. We use inspection specific technologies to ensure that nothing goes unaccounted for.
We use:

  • Spirit and laser levels – to detect movement in the structure of the house.
  • Humidity and moisture detectors – to check for or pre-empt water damage.,
  • Thermal imaging equipment – to conduct unintrusive sweeps of large areas.
  • Calibrated radio devices – to check for ants and termites in walls and hard to reach areas.
  • Multimeters – to detect a variety of electrical fault markers.
  • On the report that we provide to you following an inspection, we’ll outline not only any issues we have found, but also areas that have conditions that are conducive to problems like water damage or termites. We’ll also be sure to outline any areas that could not be accessed, so that you’re aware of both the certainties, and the aspects of a property about which you cannot be certain.
