The building industry is buzzzzzzing with activity. Perth is dotted in houses being built, and it’s a sight we leeeerve to see. #yayforbuilding
That said, with activity growing, many people are considering using an independent building inspector. Hmmmm, interesting concept. BUT is it REALLY worth the $$$ and why?
Let’s get started. WHY even use a building inspector? And what do they do?
Building Inspectors ensure your home meets the Australian Building Code and best practices. When you think about it – it just makes sense. After all, nothing beats having peace of mind that your home is safe for you, and your loved ones!
You might be wondering; Why is this even a hot topic?
Reports in the media and across social media have indicated that some large builders have lost control of their building projects due to selling too many homes and a lack of trades. It’s been reported that one builder even asked clients to source their own trades.
We reckon that recruiting new or inexperienced people into businesses at short notice can often affect quality – making it important to get everything 100% A-OK’d before moving in.
Here’s another four reasons why we reckon using a building inspector is super duper important.
- A Building Inspector will ensure your builder is correctly sticking to Building Codes.
- An independent inspector is working on your behalf throughout the project so you don’t need to be a construction expert. They are your eyes and ears.
- Inspectors are more often builders so they can communicate with the builder on your behalf (especially if a complex technical issue arises).
- Less stress. Out of sight, out of mind (but well taken care of!)
