If you’re like many others and looking for a highly sought out property in Glen Osmond, then do the right thing and invest in pre-purchase building inspection. The team at Detail Building Inspections have all the necessary knowledge and skills in order to complete a thorough and extensive investigation and report so that you can sign on the dotted line with confidence.

 

Salt Damp

 

While the suburb is full of character and historical beauty, it is important to keep an eye out for salt damp that may be present in so many heritage homes.

 

Salt damp occurs when moisture from the ground rises through the exterior walls of a property. This means there is an issue with the damp-proof course.

 

Homes that were built before 1875 were not built with damp proof courses. This is why heritage homes are usually susceptible to salt damp typically evident in the base of main walls.

 

At Detail Building Inspections we will check for salt damp and potential salt damp contributors in the following areas:

 

  •    Windowsills
  •    Doors and Windows/frames
  •    Blocked and overflowing gutters
  •    Protruding wall ledges
  •    Chimneys

 

Once the report is complete and there are definite findings of damp in the property, you will be able to quote the damage and the necessary repair costs. This will allow you to either move onto another property or adjust your offering price with back up evidence.
