Why Building Masters? What We Do

We’re Builders, NOT Architects!      

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 when buying your new home?

A Melbourne 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 can I use a drafting service?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your help yesterday. If it wasn’t for you we would have been saddled with a lemon. We have exercised our right to withdraw in the cooling off period and barring any other tricks we have hopefully managed to save thousands of dollars. We feel like we’ve learned a bunch and will most definitely be using your services again in the future (and telling all our friends!).

Thank you very much,
