Mr Inspector believes a thorough building inspection of any home will reveal every problem at a house before you buy. Mr Inspector has been operating for 15 years and has seen all types of building defects.
The photograph depicted here was taken during a recent building inspection in St Kilda and shows extensive roof rust. These defects can not be seen unless you climb on the roof and to replace a rusted roof on a standard three bedroom home you are looking around $20,000.
“This shows the importance of being thorough”, says lead building inspector, Peter Alexander.
