Practically everyone living in Australia would have had moments of appreciation towards our beautiful coastline. It’s not surprising either; we truly are the lucky country.

As someone serious about buying a property in Largs Bay, we imagine that you have a genuine understanding of what makes this place so incredible. However, with every investment, you must be astute with what risks are involved. When buying a home, it is imperative that you become familiar with its condition. If, after the sale, you were to discover that the home has numerous faults, it will mean that you will need to pay to have them fixed. By conducting a pre-purchase building inspection, we will identify the minor and major defects throughout the property, which means you can gain a better understanding of what the repairs might cost.

Salt Damp

Some homes, especially those before 1980, were not built with what is called a damp proof course. This is a type of protection is found beneath the construction and acts as a way to block moisture and minerals in the soil from finding its way into the walls. When this happens, it causes salt damp, which damages the interior of the home and leaves walls cracked and looking unsightly. Detail Building Inspections are licensed in construction and building supervision, which, along with our extensive inspection history, means we are well equipped to identify issues such as this in your Largs Bay home.
