Mr Inspector is a qualified building inspector in Cheltenham, Victoria and took the above photograph during a building inspection in Cheltenham showing a rusted roof.

Mr Inspector’s house inspections sometimes reveal a beautiful new roof when we arrive at the inspection and park out the front.  Sometimes looks can be deceiving – the blind sides that you can not see from the street can be covered in rust.  The only time you will know abut this is when you see the water coming through he ceiling.

A thorough building inspection by Mr Inspector can reveal all these hidden defects and is essential before you buy a property as an entire rusted roof could cost around $20,000 to replace.
