Only minutes from both the beach and the city, the historical suburb of Cheltenham is one desired by so many. Filled with wide, jacaranda-lined streets, character homes, AND proximity to the recent St. Clair development, Cheltenham is filled with a unique charm that has seen its popularity skyrocket in recent times.
However, with this suburb’s charming historical character can come a few housing defects that every buyer should be aware of. While some of these defects can be hidden to the untrained eye, you can rely on a Detail Building Inspections professional building inspection to find it and advise you on your next options.
With years of industry experience in both historical and modern builds, our building inspections team have helped thousands of Adelaide and rural South Australian buyers make a well-informed purchasing decision.
Cheltenham’s charm can be attributed to the abundance of heritage 1920 bungalows in the area. While these old homes are breathtaking and hold a stunning piece of South Australian history between their walls, they can be more susceptible to severe defects because of their age.
This can also be attributed to the lack of Australian building standards at the time of their build. Homes were not protected against things such as salt damp many years ago. Without the correct protection minerals found in the soil tend to have a higher chance of rising through up and into the walls which can lead to cracking both outside and inside the home. This is why there is so much importance around investing in a building inspection service, especially with older properties.
At Detail Building Inspections, we are experienced in a vast range of home builds, ranging from historical through to modern day homes. Our team knows exactly what to look out for when inspecting a property, and will provide our findings in a detailed building inspection report to you within 24 hours of your inspection.
