Stormwater-connection-requiredBuilding & Pest Inspection – Unit Complex (Kirra)

I was asked by property investor to undertake a thorough Building and Pest Inspection to a first floor unit in a block of six in Kirra.

The unit complex was located close to the beach, and a number of defective issues were found during the inspection.

  • Cracked asbestos sheeting to the roof
  • Leaking asbestos gutter
  • Insufficient drainage
  • Wet rot to decking framing timbers
  • Insufficient strength to timber handrails
  • Rusted stairs stringer brackets

Cracked-asbestos-roofingThis property is more than 30 years old and the defect issues are relevant to the age and close proximity to the ocean.

Our Building and Pest Inspections usually take 1 to 2 hrs and typically highlight these types of problems. Our inspection reports form a valuable tool to the prospective buyer in making their decision.
