In the day and age of DIY jobs around the home due to everyone getting exited with THE BLOCK etc I often find issues like this!
It is now more important than ever to get a pre-purchase property inspection in order to identify potential problems like this. Sure, it might be easy to spot some old timbers or fixtures that are already rotting, but what about a recently completed renovation? You know, the type of jobs that are rushed through quickly in order to make a great impression with a minimal cost?
It’s these types of ‘upgrades’ that home buyers really need to watch out for. The use of incorrect materials or improper installation are easily masked by the ‘wow factor’ these botched up renovations can create. You owe it to yourself to invest in a professional, somebody who can see past the smoke and mirrors of a property presentation and get straight down to what’s important – how valuable or how much of a liability is this property you are considering investing in!

Incorrect materials for certain jobs will not last when exposed to the elements of weathering and moisture etc.
These are just some of the issues that can be found with a pre purchase building inspection.
INVEST WITH CONFIDENCE with your biggest asset.
