We can assist you with the following types of inspection depending on your needs:
    When you invest your life savings into a new home, it is important to ensure that it is constructed to the highest standards. Our new home inspections in Melbourne are carried out over the five stages of your home’s construction. We inspect your home from the slab pre-pour stage through to the PCI handover and all stages in between. Architect Inspect will prepare a comprehensive report advising you about the construction defects that have occurred on site. This will arm you with the knowledge to ensure that your home is built according to the National Construction Codes, Australian Standards and Victorian Building Authority tolerance guidelines.

    A comprehensive pre purchase building and pest inspection should be a key part of your due diligence when purchasing a home. Our building inspectors will arrange a comprehensive pre purchase building inspection on your behalf. Our inspectors examine the roof, floor, sub floor and throughout each room to determine what costs you are likely to incur once you purchase the home.
