Building Inspections – Shoddy Work

Building & Pest Inspection – Building Work Not Conforming To any Recognised Standard – Shoddy Work

Non Conforming Building Work

Australia is fortunate in having a good set of codes governing the standard, utility and safety of building work. However, there are no building police walking up and down our streets ensuring that non complying work or “shoddy work” is not done.

There are many instances where “home handy men” have undertaken building work in ignorance of the building codes and more importantly the reason for their existence.

In is important to appreciate that building codes have been developed to protect us from injury, illness, and unnecessary financial loss.

A ABIS pre-purchase building inspection will identify any work that does not conform to any recognised standard and advise prospective buyers that there may be significant costs in undoing or correcting such shoddy work.

The above photo is an example of building work that has not been completed to any recognized standard. Whilst the person who did this work probably thought they were improving the building they have in fact introduced a number of problems that did not exist prior to the work being done. Whilst not necessarily obvious to the casual observer, conditions have been created that greatly increase the likelihood of timber pest damage such as termite attack and fungal decay to the frame of this building.

ABIS building and pest inspections are conducted to the highest standard by building inspectors with a minimum of 10 years experience together with the highest professional qualifications in their field. ABIS has been in business over 27 years conducting both building and timber pest inspections.

Our highly recommended home inspectors are all long term trusted employees not here today gone tomorrow sub-contractors. ABIS Inspectors are supported by a unique computer aided inspection system and the latest inspection equipment such as high sensitivity thermal cameras costing thousands of dollars that others don’t often have.

When you book a pre-purchase inspection with ABIS, our friendly local (they know the area and are not in a interstate or overseas call centre) staff will make the whole process easy for you. Our Office team make all the arrangements with you, your agent, the vendor, the tenant (if there is one) and you will be sent an email to confirm the inspection time along with a pre-engagement letter which covers the scope of the inspection. Good communication and local knowledge are key to you getting the most out of your building and pest inspection. We are always happy to answer all your questions and you are most welcome to be on site when we do the inspection. Our technology, systems and processes also mean you get your high quality report shortly after your inspection is completed.

And all this for an incredible low price.
