We all make mistakes, just some mistakes are bigger than others. Don't let your builder's mistakes become your costly problem.
We all make mistakes.
Commencing with design and administration through to construction, mistakes are not uncommon.
The building process is a complicated affair that passes through many phases. The responsibility of the design and build may change hands five times depending on how large the building company is.
Building errors fall into 3 main categories:
A thorough inspection by an Independent Perth Building Inspector at various stages of the build is normally the best assurance that any major or non-compliant defects are discovered before being hidden by the building fabric. These types of defects can be hidden but normally expose themselves after the warranty periods have expired. Defects of this nature can cost a home buyer thousands of dollars to repair.
Minor defects are normally picked up during the practical completion inspection and are less costly to repair and can fall into the category of the majority of items.
We at ABEL Building Inspections Perth thought it would be worthwhile having a look at some common issues in new buildings.
There are 7 main inspection hold points on 2 storey houses.
Most of the serious or non-compliant defects will be discovered during hold point 1-5 providing an inspection is done by our professional inspectors at ABEL Building Inspections Perth. Cosmetic defects will be more visible during an inspection made at hold points 6 and 7 stages.
