A little bit of information about a Frame Stage Inspection we conducted recently in Cashmere.
The frame stage inspection is one of the most critical Building Stage Inspections you can have conducted on your new home.
This stage inspection is conducted after the builder has made their Frame Stage payment for a few important reasons. When the frame is erected it has temporary bracing insitu, this brace artificially straightens the frame until the frame is secured to the slab and the roof is put on.
Once the roof is on, the temporary bracing removed and the carpenters have been through to straighten the frame, is it then ready for the frame stage inspection. You can tell when the build has reached this stage because the windows are ready to be installed and the frame wrrapped in builders paper.
At the Frame Stage Inspection your ASBIR technician will use his level to ensure the frame is plumb, square and true to plans. He will also ensure that the frame has been secured adequately and that it has been constructed in accordance with the Australian Standards and Building Codes.
In addition to the above, your inspector will assess the quality of workmanship and ensure that there are no errors or omission that should be corrected prior to the frame being covered up.
All Suburbs Building Inspections’ reports will provide you with a clear desription of what each defect is and where each defect is located. This is followed by a concise recommendation as to who is responsible for rectifying the defect. If any Australian Standard and Tolernace or Building Code has not been complied with, we will provide an explanation as to why they are uncompliant.
