Tips for building stage inspections

Consider our tips below to get the most value out of a new build inspection.

  • Plan ahead: Hire our professional inspectors before you even start your new build to ensure that they are available and can meet your requirements. By planning ahead and ensuring an inspection at every stage, you can prevent any delays in your construction timeline.

  • Hire professionals: Ensure you hire experienced, qualified inspectors who will pick up small issues before they become major structural defects. Our professional inspectors are qualified engineers with more than 15 years of experience and hold a QBCC builders licence.

  • Keep a paper trail: Your building inspections should result in a comprehensive report that details every stage of construction from before pouring the foundation through to an assessment of the completed project. We provide you with a report for each step of the build so that you can refer to it at any time.

What You Can Expect from A1 Building & Pest Consultancy Regarding Building Stage Inspections

We provide comprehensive new home inspections which cover all the essential stages of construction, including:

  • Slab inspection: A concrete slab inspection is essential to ensure that your home is on a solid foundation and to prevent structural issues. These issues could include internal and external cracked walls and floor tiles, among other costly problems.
  • Timber frame inspection: Our timber framing inspection includes making sure that your walls are straight, the frame is fitted correctly on the slab, that there is no cracked concrete and your roof truss is installed and trussed correctly. By checking the framing of your home during construction, you can prevent any follow-on effect, which can cause issues as the build progresses.
  • Lock-up inspection: The lock-up inspection is to check the external cladding or brickwork of your new home and to ensure that it meets the code. We inspect the roof covering and flashing, doors and more to ascertain if your house is watertight and safe.

When your home is complete, we do a final handover inspection and inspect every part of your new build.
