We have used ABIS twice recently on 2 different properties and have been very happy with their punctuality, and efficiency in the building and pest process as well as receiving the detailed reports within a few hours of the inspection. We highly recommend them and will use them again in the future.

No 5. Leaking Shower Closet
A shower that is leaking into the surrounding walls is one of the most common problems detected during our Pre-Purchase Building Inspections. What is not fully appreciated by the average homeowner is that bathrooms and in particular the waterproofing membranes to showers have a limited life compared with the rest of the building.

The home is where the heart is, and you want your family and friends to be happy and comfortable inside it. But just as the home can be a comfortable space, it can also pose a danger to loved ones if not taken care of.

There are plenty of myths abound when it comes to getting pre-purchase building inspections for property in Brisbane. From the myth that all home inspectors are qualified and have the necessary experience to be trusted and do a good job. Such a myth is false and might leave one open to a scam artist who will leave trick you into believing that a building is safe and might put your family and friends in danger.
No 4 - New High Rise Apartment Defects - Water Ingress
Before handing over your home to the sales agents to advertise and put it up for sale, there is one thing homeowners tend to forget; and that is the roof. Because it is high up, one can be forgiven for overlooking it. However, a roof is as vital to a home as the windows, doors and electricity and it should be treated as such. Any fault with the roof may set back family hundreds of dollars or lower the price listing of the home.
The nights are getting shorter and the days longer, the sun is just that bit warmer than yesterday and the cool pool water is calling your name. Summer has arrived, and it is understandable to be in a festive and jovial mood around this time of the year. Unfortunately, this time of the year also brings pests out that can have made a nest in your home, spreading disease. One way to be certain that your family and loved ones are safe from such pests, you can get the Australian building inspection services to come to your home.
Purchasing a home is a significant milestone and investment towards your future. Whether you are a young couple planning for children or an elderly couple looking for a smaller home to move into, finding the perfect house is not easy. The first step would be to ensure that you qualify for a home loan. Once you know that you are not blacklisted, and your credit score is looking good, you can visit your local bank or financial lenders to work out how much you can borrow from them.
No 3. Loose and Drummy Tiles
Nobody wants to move into their dream home only for the experience to turn into a nightmare because there are far more repairs to be done than expected. To many people, the house might look perfect with no problems, but it is always good to err on the side of caution. This potential nightmare can be avoided if you insist on a building inspection report before you begin proceedings to purchase it.
When it comes to construction companies, reputation is rather important. The best contractors will always get the best paying contracts to work with. Their reputation precedes them not only because they are good at what they do but because they care about their work. Therefore, such contractors take the time to ensure each phase of the construction has the green light from a building inspector before the handover.

No 1 - Downpipes Discharging Near Footings
Downpipes Discharging Near Footings is the first in a series of common defects that ABIS finds during Building and pest Inspections.
