Today’s Pre purchase building inspection is located in the Southern Adelaide suburb of Craigburn Farm.

With the roof covering being difficult to see from the ground the clients were not aware of this issue.
The issue is the tile ridge caps have become unstuck and need to be re-bed and re-pointed to become weather tight once again. If left not rectified this will lead to water entering into the roof space, eventually possibly causing water damage to ceilings and collapsing.

One of this weeks pre purchase building Inspections in Victor Harbor, south of Adelaide.
Problem: Failed moisture test within the shower area.
Cause: no silicone sealant applied around the tap allowing water to enter into the wall cavity.
This can lead to timber rot within the wall, excess moisture resulting in tiles becoming unstuck or worst of all a expensive bathroom renovation.
