Lock-up Stage Inspection Torquay

With the housing boom is occurring Australia wide, Torquay and the Surf Coast would appear to be leading the charge. This may or may not be the case, but it certainly feels like it. And with new housing estates popping up every day, the housing boom continues unabated. And as builders work tirelessly to get jobs finished, unfortunately, building defects can and do happen.  Whilst many people building their new dream home don’t think an inspection is required until the job is completed, a lot of heart ache and pain can be avoided by getting a lock-up stage inspection report done.

As a building inspector with over 40 years of local experience, we have our go-to hot spots when doing an inspection and proceed through a comprehensive list of items to check. This gives you, the new homeowner, peace of mind that your new home will be built right the first time.

Some issues that we have noticed on the Surf Coast recently have been:

  • leaks to bathroom or wet areas
  • leaking and/or poorly installed windows
  • poorly constructed brickwork

The list of items we check is extensive and there are external and internal checks.
