How to avoid unqualified building inspections? In a Fairfax article, Chris Dyce, president of the Australian Society of Building Consultants, says go with experienced building inspectors. Make sure they’ve work experience in the industry and don’t forget insurance. After all, he contends, “it’s a waste of money if you get an idiot… It can be very expensive if they don’t actually identify the issues.”
Jim’s Building Inspections ticks all the important boxes for peace of mind.
Dyce maintains that these unqualified inspectors believe “all I’ve got to do is walk through the house, kick a few walls and say ‘she’ll be OK’ and make money, charge whatever I want to charge”.
At Jim’s Building Inspections, by way of contrast, experienced eyes spot safety hazards and major defects, and get on top of problems early before they worsen. They can identify potential asbestos issues as well.
