Does a Building and Pest Inspector Check For Chipped Bricks

The level of detail in our documentation will depend upon the type of inspection. For example, if our Inspector is conducting a Building and Pest Inspection on an older property, he may not note the chipped bricks unless they contribute to a structural defect, or conditions conducive to structural defects.

As our Inspector must judge the noteworthiness of each defect in context of a comparable property of similar age and condition, chipped bricks may not be considered significant enough to itemise. As you can appreciate, with older existing homes, it is most important that our inspectors document defects of highest priority or the list would go on ad infinitum.

However, the situation is very different for our Stage Inspections and Handovers of newly built homes where chipped bricks would definitely be assessed in accordance with the Standards & Tolerances Guide where noticeable surface cracks greater than 2 mm are considered a defect which require repair work if identified within 12 months from date of completion.

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.
