VCAT Building Defect Reports
WHAT INFORMATION CAN OUR PROFESSIONAL BUILDING INSPECTIONS AND BUILDING DEFECT REPORTS EXPOSE?
We identify building defects that are the result of sub-standard work or expertise, poor quality or aged building materials used at the time of construction, outdated building practices at the time of construction (before building codes were revised), or defects caused by typical soil movements.
We can identify new buildings that do not comply with the current Australian Building Codes Standards and Regulations.
We can identify older buildings that no longer comply with current standards, and must be judged against the standard at the time of construction or renovations.
We locate the cause of cracked, damaged, or deteriorated brick work, concrete, tiles, cladding, roofing components, plumbing, fittings, fireplaces, stumps and foundations.
We identify faulty or inadequate termite protection, damp proofing or leaks, water damage (excessive sagging to roofs and ceilings), salt deterioration, unsatisfactory drainage, poor framework and miscellaneous structural damage.
We assess areas that normally wouldn’t be accessible for a typical home owner (within a roof space, subfloor, or wall space).
