PCI or Practical Completion Inspections – New Builds
Please note: We do not conduct progressive new build inspections. Please see below for PCI or Practical Completion Inspections.
FROM $525 – $575 INCLUDING GST
Having an independent inspector, that knows what he is looking at and working on your behalf, could be the difference between enjoying your new home and having an uncomfortable confrontation with the builder down the track. The time may come when you are not happy with the finished house or your house starts to crack, move and make loud noises on a windy day.
Why not get it all sorted before you pay the builder that last payment?
Our reports provide extensive information on the type of build and its adequacy. Various Australian Standards may be referenced if required. Special emphasis is put on the roof framing structure. This is where most WA builders don’t seem to follow the correct building codes and tend to have an “out of sight out of mind” attitude. That is, until Phil comes along and questions the structural integrity and workmanship within his inspection.
This is your opportunity to note any discrepancies in workmanship / structure etc.
Why wouldn’t you hire a professional that will notice elements an untrained eye may not see, understands building tolerances and standards and can note all these within a report for you to pass over to the building company for repair or rectification.
Our PCI inspection includes items such as the following but not limited to:
- Structural elements including roof void framing, external walls & cracking.
- Roofing, gutters, flashings.
- Ceilings, slab and wall workmanship.
- Tiling & grouting.
- Sealants particularly in wet areas.
- Painting finishes.
- Plumbing & electrical installed, RCD & smoke alarm installs.
- Fixtures & fittings such as door handles, towel racks, kitchen cabinetry, bench tops along with many other elements of the property.
This is a complete structural and cosmetic inspection conducted by a Qualified Builder with full professional insurances. Phil has over 20 years experience and has conducted over 5,000 inspections to date.
Precision Building Inspections follow the Australian Standard 4349.0 Inspection of Buildings process and the reports offer full coloured photos at no extra cost.
Unusually large properties may be a higher cost at Precision Building Inspections’ discretion i.e. 3 stories, 5+ bedrooms, 3+ bathrooms etc.
