Salisbury Building Inspections
The importance of a building inspection can never be overstated. Detail Building Inspections prides itself on its construction expertise, which translates to a thorough report of the property’s condition.
The reality of buying a home is that you are not protected against faults according to consumer purchase law. The onus is on you, as the buyer, to be meticulous with understanding the state of the home. If you are buying in Salisbury, there is a good chance you have a plan to renovate, or are buying a property that has experienced renovation in the past. This can be a challenging experience if the correct procedures aren’t employed along the way.
Old Versus New
If a building inspector is not experienced, they may fail to understand how the renovations will interact with the existing structure. Our building proficiency and qualifications mean we are best prepared for everything, from heritage restoration to more contemporary builds. This allows us to apply our knowledge of how different building approaches might actually create problems or defects, whether throughout a renovation or starting from scratch.
Our staged building inspections will save you money by ensuring the build is safe, compliant to regulations, and will reduce the home’s susceptibility to defects. By ensuring the construction is completed appropriately, it is less likely you will need to undertake repairs at a later date. If it is an investment property, a home with little-to-no defects gives you more bargaining power when later looking to sell. In this situation, it always pays to be thorough.
Life in Salisbury is all about accessibility. Its proximity to parks, sporting clubs, major shopping centres, and higher learning institutions means Salisbury will continue to grow.
