Perth Property Inspection

Buying a house is a serious investment decision. Choosing the right home to buy can be stressful for a potential home owner. Many future home owners make the mistake of not taking the time to have a complete property inspection completed before buying their home. It’s true that building inspections in Perth can be costly, but skipping this step can cost you more over the long run if the house you choose to buy has issues.

Destructive Steel

When does steel become destructive? Steel is widely used in the building industry as a material that has very strong structural properties. It can also be the cause of some expensive structural repairs! If left unchecked and not properly maintained steel will RUST. When the rust has set it it will naturally keep rusting until the element collapses. When steel rusts it expands and this is where things can start getting expensive. 

Chemical Delignification

 

What is Chemical Delignification?

Prior to the early 1990's chemical Delignifaction was referred to by many as Hairy Timber.

Chemical Delignification describes the deterioration in it's true form, the lignin in timber is damaged by airborne chemicals.

Roof Struts

Roof Struts

Roof struts support underpurlins in your roof which in turn support the rafters that your roof covering is nail or screwed to. Therefore it is important that struts are in place to transfer the load of the underpurlin to the foundation of the house.

Water Leaks

Water leaks potential can cause a lot of damage and expense if not picked up on straight away. Typical water leaks can be found in the bathroom usually as a result of a water proofing problem associated with the shower base. Also cracked roof tiles or poorly fitted flashings can let water enter into your roof space.

In the photo below you can see a typical stain and sagging of the plasterboard ceiling that indicates a water leak. In this instance this was located below the upstairs shower. Obviously there is a problem with the water proof membrane in the shower.

Exposed Electrical Wires

Exposed electrical wires like these in your roof space are extremely dangerous. To avoid electrocution or a fire they should be located in a junction box! Check yours today!!
