5 Things to look for in a building inspector.

Did you know?

The three most common defects which we see on new residential building sites are;

  1. Paving placed up against walls covering the Damp Course which allows moisture to enter into the walls.
  2. Lack of plastic lining to the full edge height of the footing. This shortage of plastic can allow moisture and salts to enter into the floor slab.
  3. Rafters offset from the top of the wall frame studs. This means that roof loads are not distributed directly to the stud, and therefore the roof loads are not adequately transferred to the ground.
