Sub-standard workmanship found in building inspection
Not all tradesmen are good at their job!

Unfortunately here art A2Z Building Inspections I get regular calls in regards to sub standard  workmanship. This can cost you $1,000’s in the future. This particular case in Reynella, South  Australia the client had Foxtel installed. The contractor removed the ridge caps and then used silicone to reinstall the ridge caps. Both big No No’s! This unleashed a string of costly events.

  • Water penetrated the roof covering.
  • Water damage to the ceiling sustained.
  • A handy man was used to re-bed and re-point the caps to a sub standard quality leaning mortar in the gutter causing the gutter to over flow.

A defect indirection and report was performed due to the client wanting to take further action. A stressful and time consuming way to come about a solution for something that could have been avoided with a thorough & professional inspection of the trade person’s workmanship.

A2Z Building Inspections perform pre-purchase building inspections, pre-auction building inspections,  new build inspections,  defect specific inspections & pre-sale inspections. Make sure you don’t get caught out- phone Aaron today on 0401 953 057.
