Building defect reports - generally building standards are referenced to the Building Code of Australia, relevant Australian Standards or Good Building Practices and are reported as a defect if they do not comply with these Standards.
Our building defect reports cover house and unit construction, industrial and commercial buildings as well as landscaping, driveways and retaining wall issues.
Some examples of building defect issues reported upon include rising damp, roof leaks, bathroom and shower leaks and mould and mildew as well as fungi. In addition the great Australian enemy, the termite as well as bad workmanship.
Other issues can involve Insurance Claims from fire/water damage and impact damage as well as the structure of the building where water penetration is occurring, or where ground movement has occurred.
Remember water ingress is a structural defect.
