All Suburbs Building Inspection Reports (ASBIR) conducted a building and pest house inspection in Sandstone Point on behalf of a prospective buyer looking to settle near Bribie Island.
ASBIR owner and Senior Inspector, Fred Broekman said finding your dream house can be a thrill, but it’s also easy to fall head-over-heels with the design or layout without looking at the structural condition of the property.
“To the naked eye, a house may look perfect but it’s crucial you book a qualified building inspector to assess the state of the dwelling and determine if you’re likely to be up for costly repairs now or in the future.”
In this instance, the comprehensive assessment of the internal and external areas revealed tile defects throughout the main thoroughfares and wet areas.
“We identified drummy tiles in the kitchen, hallway, bathroom, ensuite and toilet. These tend to occur when the adhesive between the tile and floor has not adhered properly during installation, or where the tile has come loose from the adhesive over time.
“This type of tiles can usually only be detected by the drummy or hallow noise they make when tapped, and there may not be any visible damage but will eventually need to be re-fixed once they come loose.”
This particular inspection also revealed wet rot decay to timber eaves and fencing around the home.
If you’re looking to buy a home, Fred recommended that you invest in a pre-purchase building and pest house inspection before your contract goes unconditional.
“It’s a small outlay upfront, and one that could potentially save you thousands. Not to mention a pre-purchase building inspection can help avoid the headache – and heartache – of hefty repair work to your dream home,” he said.
