New Home Building Inspections in Maroondah
We carry out a lot of new home building inspections in Maroondah. This is because new home owners in Maroondah know it is the best way to protect their investment. In fact, they know it is the only way to make sure their new home is completed to an acceptable standard before they move in.
It is unfortunate, but you can't assume that just because your home is new that it does not have any faults. That's why it is only a small cost to get an inspection performed - yet it can end up saving you thousands of dollars.
A new home inspection definitely needs to be done before you make final payment to your builder. This is because it is usually much harder to get faults fixed once payment is made. However, it is also recommended that various building inspections are carried out when your builder has finished a stage of the build, and a progress payment is due. At each stage inspection we identify any defects in your new home, as well as any non compliant issues. In addition, by using a detailed checklist we identify all defects at every stage of your home build.

Slab Inspections Maroondah
We find that slab inspections are one of the most popular stage inspections we perform for new homes in Maroondah. This is no surprise as you need to get the foundations of your new home right! If there are issues with your concrete slab it can lead to structural issues. These issues include cracked walls, ceilings, floors and tiles. It may also mean that you can't even open your windows.
We do our concrete slab inspections in two parts. The first part is done BEFORE the concrete is poured, so if there are any issues at the preparation stage, including steel reinforcement and boxing it is picked up before the concrete is poured. The second part of our inspection is done AFTER the concrete is poured and we make sure the floor is straight and level as along with other factors. In addition, we always confirm that the concrete slab meets the standards of the Building Code of Australia and Standard and Tolerances Version 2015.
