This is my standard report and is a comprehensive inspection of your property. Please see the FAQ's page for detail about what this report covers.

$565 + GST for an average sized home.

2. Contour Mapping

I can give a general indication of floor levels along with measurements (mm per metre) with my standard report. However, when repairs are required, a full 'contour map' is often asked for by engineers or insurance companies, before deciding on their repair strategy. For contour mapping I accurately measure the spot levels at each corner, as well as the centre of every room throughout the house. I then map these out to the millimeter on a floor plan which is generally supplied by the owner.

3. Moisture Testing

If I see water staining, peeling paintwork, swollen timber, or other signs indicating the possible presence of moisture, I will do non-invasive testing as part of my standard pre-purchase Property Report at no extra charge. For this I use I use a German made Trotec T660 moisture meter to scan (using capacitance) up to 40mm deep into a wall. I find this ideal for indicating the possible presence of moisture in the walls.

To be absolutely certain of the cause of elevated moisture levels, invasive methods may be necessary. This may include the removal of wall linings for instance. In these cases I will use a different type of meter - a Trotec T510, which is a 'pin' type meter. I do need to charge extra for invasive testing and that would need to be discussed in advance.

5. Property Rebuild Valuations

Is your property under-insured? I can give indicative construction values for the various elements of your home. The main house, garage, decks, driveways and retaining walls all have accepted meter rates attached to them depending on the build specification, the difficulty of site and location etc.

I find most people are under-insured and usually surprised when told how much their house will cost to rebuild.
