Mr Inspector, a qualified Building Inspector conducts professional pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspections in the Black Rock area and surrounds.
The above photograph was taken by Mr Inspector during one of his many building inspections in Black Rock. The house inspection photograph depicts fire damage to the timber framing members which would not be picked up unless a thorough building and pest inspection was carried out.
Some areas have been repaired but ultimately all the fire affected timbers should have been replaced due to the structural integrity of the timber being compromised. This signifies why it is so important to have your potential home inspected because you would not get access to the roof space during the "open for inspection" times that you may attend. The estimated rectification cost for this defect was $18,000.
This is a very good reason why it is so important to obtain the services of a qualified and experienced building inspector. Mr Inspector has been doing building inspections Melbourne wide since 2004 and is is the only qualified Building Inspector (Diploma of Building Surveying) operating from the Cheltenham, Black Rock, Sandringham, Hampton, Beaumaris and Mentone areas.
