Building Inspection

The building inspection is carried out under the guidelines of the New Zealand Standard 4306:2005 which covers Residential Property Inspections.

All aspects of the dwelling are assessed from the roofing to the foundations, structural integrity, weathertightness and maintenance requirements.

The electrical system, plumbing and drainage are assessed and advised upon.

Insulation, extraction facilities and heating types are also noted as they all have a role providing a ‘healthy home’.

A moisture evaluation is included with every inspection to determine if there are any weathertightness or dampness issues.

Different period houses require different inspection techniques.

Dwellings, built after the 1990s undergo a more intensive moisture and weathertightness evaluation and moisture scanning.

A 'risk design' assessment is undertaken with newer dwellings to identify any areas of the design that could potentially lead to weathertightness issues.
