You want to be sure that your newly built home is (preferably) defect free, and those areas which aren’t, need to be identified and detailed in a report which clearly recommends rectification.

Our experience has proven that many areas not covered by the Australian Standards (AS4349.0) are constantly being flagged as defects, so we ensure our duty of care extends to these areas as well:

  • Minor defects
  • Fixtures and fittings: Windows and sliding doors, Ceiling fans / exhaust fans, Floor coverings, cabinets, smoke alarms, internal doors, fireplaces / chimneys

Our defects report clearly outlines what your builder needs to rectify

We understand you need feedback as soon as possible following the inspection – your building consultant will call you with the result followed by a detailed report the next business day.
