When to order a roof inspection?

  • Had any workers on the roof in the past 5 years?

    • The reason to check after you have had workers on your roof is they could have left metal shards or debris behind leave areas for rust to propagate.

  • If you experience a storm with strong winds, lightening, hail or heavy rain it is recommended you arrange a roof inspection as these storms can damage your roof from dented or cracked metal sheets or tiles to heavy tree branches weighing on the roof

  • It is also recommended that you have roof inspections every 5 years as roofs do degrade overtime however regular inspections can help prolong the life of your roof

  • Monitoring construction progress - whether you are managing a construction project, or overseeing your own development, having records of site progress throughout the project can save you time and money if disputes arise down the track.

  • Due diligence - Easily identify and investigate potential defects prior to purchase.

Maintaining pool fences and safety barriers is essential to reduce the number of young children drowning and serious immersion injuries in pools.

Queensland's current pool safety standard was introduced on 1 December 2010 and all pools, new and existing, must comply with the standard. It is a requirement that all pools in Queensland be fenced and registered on the pool safety register. The pool safety register includes a record of pools in Queensland and pool safety certificates issued. Queensland Government legislation allows Council to issue on-the-spot fines for pool fencing not complying with the standards.

A pool safety certificate, is required when selling, buying or leasing a property with a pool. Pool  safety certificates are valid for one year for a shared pool and two years for a non-shared pool.
