Pre-Purchase Building & Pest Inspections

No matter how good the property may present on the outside, old, new or renovated, most defects are hidden by owner cover ups and unqualified trades using cheap building materials that only an experienced inspector would find. A building inspection by our experienced inspector will provide you with a comprehensive (same day) report you can rely on, outlining Major and Minor defects, we protect you from hidden and costly repairs.

The inspections starts at the driveway and finishes at the rear fence. From the exterior to interior including roofs, subfloors, roof spaces and much more, we thoroughly inspect all accessible areas. Your inspector is Certified and equipped with state-of-the-art technology specifically designed to detect moisture and timber pest activity.

New Home Construction (Stage Inspections)

We often find defects overlooked in new home construction by the building surveyors/inspectors as their running from job to job limiting the inspection time of your critical building stages.

At Star Building Inspections, we concentrate on one job at time, allowing us to thoroughly inspect and report accurately, every time, protecting your asset.
