We offer you the choice of a verbal building inspection report or a full comprehensive written building inspection report that will be emailed to you.

We provide the following detailed services to protect your biggest investment namely your property:

A – Written Pre-purchase or Pre-sale Residential Property Inspection Report (Excludes Thermal Imaging): Full and comprehensive written report with all the detail and information you require. This report is clear and easy to understand. Moisture readings are taken on the internal areas of the property using a non-invasive moisture meter.

B – Written Pre-purchase or Pre-sale Residential Property Inspection Report (Includes Thermal Imaging): Full and comprehensive written report with all the detail and information you require. This report is clear and easy to understand and it includes a thermal imaging report to the internal areas of the property.

 We will do an internal scan of the property walls and ceilings. Thermography is a technology that allows us to see variations in thermal energy or heat. Infrared technology uses the part of the light spectrum that is invisible to the human eye, the science of obtaining and analysing this thermal data is performed with IR cameras. The IR camera is able to convert invisible infrared radiation into a visible image.A Thermal Imaging camera cannot see through walls and will not expose all defects. It is only an inspection tool.

A Thermographer can look at large areas quickly and more thoroughly compared to other types of investigation methods. The thermal imaging is done on the inside of the property to find any moisture.

The infrared camera used in the inspection of this building is sensitive to the slightest variations in infrared radiation and able to detect thermal variations quickly and non-invasively. The IR camera does not indicate the presence of moisture only the thermal variation present.

Should an possible anomalie be detected by the thermal imaging camera  a “cross check” moisture readings is taken using a non-invasive moisture meter to confirm the anomalie.

C – Verbal “ walk thru” inspection – No written report: 

  It is a general “walk thru” with the client or their representative in order to take notes and take photographs. We will do an internal and external inspection of the dwelling on the property. Roofs will only be viewed externally from ground level, or from rooms inside of property. We will comment on possible problems and current problems/issues that we notice. At the discretion of Build Biz Ltd we reserve the right to digitally record the “verbal reporting” of the inspection.
