A complete weather tightness building inspection

A weather tightness property inspection involves a thorough and comprehensive report of the building, inside and out. A report assesses your property for moisture penetration, moisture levels, structural and health risks, gradual deterioration and general and preventative maintenance needed.

Reports include photos, a detailed description of the areas and any issues. If needed, a scope of works with remedial plan and a full estimate for any needed repair, remedial or maintenance work can be provided.

Moisture readings will be taken with non-invasive meters and are investigated if any leaks or water damage is found. Any areas of concern will be identified including aspects of general and preventative maintenance needed. Structural stability and weather tightness is checked.

Any areas of interest where water gets in via the cladding or roofing system, or areas of internal moisture penetration which can result in wet timber framing that raises the likelihood of timber decay due to consistent elevated moisture levels are clearly identified. 

You will get a full written report advising the following points:

  • Moisture penetration.
  • Internal moisture penetration. 
  • Gradual damage or deterioration. 
  • Moisture levels. 
  • Structural issues. 
  • Health risks. 
  • Significant defects. 

We look at all areas of your home or commercial property including: the site, subfloor, exterior, cladding, drainage, joinery, deck and patio, roof exterior, roof space, interior, services, accessory units, ancillary spaces and buildings.
