Construction Stage Re-Inspection

Construction Stage Re-inspection

Ensuring the defects are fixed by the builder is the primary key to quality assurance Owner Inspections provide. In many cases in the past, some builders claimed they had fixed the defects, but when we got there, we noticed all or many of the defects were still present without any rectification works; hence it is highly recommend getting a re-inspection once the builder claimed that the defects are fixed and before you let them go to the next stage of inspection.  

 

                               

Defect                                                                                                  Defect Rectified

 

Reasons why re-inspection is important

  • Check if the defects are fixed or not

  • Check the validity of the repairs

  • Reporting the builder of the defect covered without providing the repair documentation
 

                                 

Initial Defect                                                         Initial Defect Rectified

 

 

Why re-inspections are required

The inspection shall comprise visual assessment of the property to identify major defects

and to form an opinion regarding the general condition of the property at the time of

inspection. (Australian Standards AS4349.12007 – Section 2.3.1).

Each item shall be visually inspected, and limited testing of operation shall be undertaken

(Australian Standards AS4349.12007 – Section Appendix C, Table C).

As mentioned above, Australian Standard requires Visual Inspection conducted and prevents inspectors from commenting on the photos provided by others. To follow the Australian Standards guidelines and provide the highest unbiased inspection and reports, we need to attend to the site and conduct a full re-inspection.

When is the right time to ask for a re-inspection?

It would be best if you kept in touch with your builder (or Site Supervisor) and ask them to inform you once the defects are fixed. Once you get the confirmation that the defects are fixed, you can book a re-inspection and one of our experienced inspectors will attend to the site and check all the defects we picked in the initial inspection and will send you a comprehensive report to you on the same day before defects being covered.

                       

Frame Defect                                                                                        Frame Defect Rectified

 

What you will get in the re-inspection report:

You will get a full report covering all defects from the initial inspection report specifying if the defects are:
– Rectified; or
– Not Rectified; or
– Covered

All above will be provided with the relevant photos and documentation for each defect separately.

                               

Frame Defect                                                                                    Frame Defect Rectified

I am absolutely thrilled with the professional service I ave received from the whole team at Owner Inspections. From Des who provided my initial quote, one that is far more competitive than any of the other 3 I got, to the team at bookings who have been responsive and flexible to my communications and requirements. Finally my actual on site inspector Ty has been professional with an excellent eye for detail. I can not recommend these guys highly enough, and firmly believe it is a very sound investment for my build. Thank you all so much. Lisa

We hired them after a bit of research and recommendation from a friend, who also had great experience with them. They also advice you with proper response if builder pushes back on any of the rectification request. Our experience with them is pleasant and I believe their service is value for money. They are professional, very responsive and respond to queries promptly.

They have done extremely well by identifying all the faults. Professional and very friendly! I would like to choose them all the time! I have done multiple house inspections while searching for the house and always my go to inspectors for all the building inspections....Cost is also reasonable and competitive. Also helped in allocating resources during the given time, since existing tenant has given some odd timings.

Special thanks once again, for doing a great job from Owner inspection company side on my inspections.

Highly recommend owner inspections as your private inspector. They were very helpful and informative from the get go and always responded to any queries very promptly, even after business hours. Their price was very competitive and had a few perks that other companies didn’t have. Will definitely use them in future! Thanks guys

The team is very accommodating to changes in inspection schedules. The inspection reports are well written and I am glad to have asked them to do 3 inspections for my house - frame, lock -up, and fixing. I'd recommend you talk to them to get a price bundle on inspections.

I’ve really had a pleasant experience with Owners Inspection. First of all Des has been wonderful calm and patient in answering all my queries and Yilmaz has been excellent with the inspection done. Got the report very next day morning and most of the corrections were already done. Would certainly recommend.

They have high quality reports. I am building with Carlisle Homes and they acknowledge their reports. No issues. Very easy to deal with. Highlights will be the customer service and timely reports. I availed all Stages inspection and it is worth it especially if you do not have A) time B) know how in construction.
