New Home Building Inspections in Yarra Ranges

We carry out a lot of new home building inspections in the Yarra Ranges. This is because it is well known that it is the most cost effective way to protect your investment in your new home. In fact, it is the only way to be certain your new home is completed to an acceptable standard before you move in.

It is often assumed that a new home does not have any defects. Unfortunately this is not true.  That's why it is really a small investment that makes you certain that you know what you're buying.

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. In addition to doing a final inspection, it is recommended that various building inspections are carried out when your builder has finished a stage of the build.  As a result, you are assured that at each stage of a build, we identify any defects in your new home. In addition, we also identify all non compliant issues. We do this by using a detailed checklist that makes sure we do not miss anything.

Slab Inspections in the Yarra Ranges

slab inspections in the yarra rangesWe find that slab inspections are one of the most popular stage inspections we perform for new homes in the Yarra Rangs. 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 will 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 As a result we will pick up 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. At this stage 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.
