Most buyers are unaware that the Building and Pest Inspection doesn't thoroughly cover the plumbing of the house. There are three integral components to a house structural, electrical and plumbing. These three components are also the most expensive to repair if there are problems and most are undetected to the untrained eye which is why we hire an experienced Building and Pest Inspector to check our homes before we buy them. The same applies for plumbing. During our inspections we have discovered 9/10 homes have moderate to serious plumbing problems.
We have discovered all kinds of plumbing problems. We have found houses with leaking water pipes undermining the foundations causing upwards of $70,000 structural damage. Leaking water pipes behind the shower attracting termites. Illegally installed plumbing and gas pipes and hot water heaters. Drains fully infested with tree roots pending a blocked drain. Some of these problems are very serious and can have major implications to your assets and safety. We highly recommend you book a Pre Purchase Plumbing Inspection to secure your asset.
If it sounds like plumbing we inspect inside and out. Some of the main components we inspect are:
Once the plumbing inspection is complete the Plumbing Inspector can speak to you immediately about any major issues if you request. The Plumbing Inspector will complete the 10-15 page report detailing all of his findings with quotations for the repairs if necessary. Additionally a DVD of the Drain Camera inspection can be provided for $27.00 +GST.
Simply call us and we will take care of everything. We can even arrange with the Real Estate Agent, Owner or Landlord an appropriate time for inspection.
