Why Building Masters Inspections

We are Builders, NOT Architects!

We are Qualified & Experienced, NOT Newbies!

Building Masters Inspections was established to provide accurate and trustworthy residential and commercial inspections for a potential buyer or seller. We have performed thousands of home & commercial inspections, most of which have earned us 5-star reviews. Building Masters Inspections is a family-owned business. We take great pride in the quality of our inspections & our excellent customer service.

When you call us, the phone will be answered by one of our highly-experienced office staff or qualified inspectors but never by an answering service or call centre. Feel free to ask any questions you have about the home inspection process. Your home inspection will be performed in a professional, thorough and detailed manner. Your inspection report and debrief will leave you feeling informed and assured about the property’s condition so you will know whether to proceed with the purchase.

We have been a part of the Melbourne community for many years. Let our experience and knowledge of local home and commercial building construction practices in the Melbourne and Greater Victoria areas work to your advantage!

Ironically, many building inspectors are Non-Builders who may have design experience, but often have little building experience. Building Masters believes an experienced builder is the best Building Inspector you can get in Melbourne. With our Building Inspection Service you will receive on-the-spot feedback, face to face with an experienced and knowledgeable professional builder. No jargon, no confusing pre-printed reports with ticks and crosses – just clear and accurate information and plain language directly between you and a senior building expert.

Why choose Building Masters to inspect your new home before you buy?

A Victorian Metro and Inner Country based building inspector from Building Masters is your best peace of mind. We know buildings and can eliminate surprises and answer the following important questions:

  • Is the building sound, does it need major repair?
  • Have serious faults been hidden from me by the existing owner?
  • If so, what are these faults and what do they cost to fix?
  • What work do I have to do to in the immediate future?
  • In the bigger picture, what are the best ways to improve the building to add value and function and what are the costs involved?
  • What could the town planning issues be?
  • Are there pests or termites affecting the building?
  • Tell me about the whole renovation process? How long does it take?
  • Do I need an architect, or should i settle for a drafting service?
