A2Z Building Inspections has had the privilege to inspect some stunning fully renovated houses lately which have been completed to a pristine standard.
When you open the front door the houses impress. Fresh paint, new carpets, wow factor every angle you look. Straight away you are blinded and in love with the property.
This often happens but there can can be some defects that aren’t clearly visible. This is why a Pre Purchase Building Inspection on your biggest investment pays for itself ten fold.

Pre purchase building inspection performed at Encounter Bay in Adelaide’s southern suburbs is a renovators delight.

One of the main defects that was found was in regards to the large entertaining balcony. From time to time you hear on the news that a balcony has collapsed and several loved ones were hurt or worse.

Regularly check over your balcony or have a experienced building inspector inspect it. Issues that can lead to injury are timber rot from lack of painting maintenance etc. balustrades that do no comply with Australia standards.

This balcony in particular suffers from timber fungal rot.
