Building Master Inspections: We’re Builders, NOT Architects!

Building inspection reports

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 Melbourne 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 can I use a drafting service?

Hi Mike,

I would like to write to say that I very much appreciate the quality inspection that you did for us in Mount Waverley. Not only was it on very short notice, but I appreciate that you took the time to make sure that I understood all of the issues very clearly.

We ended up purchasing the property, largely from the confidence that your inspection gave us, it was invaluable. Although the property had some issues we knew exactly what we were in for.

Thanks again and I wish you all the best!
