Structural Building Inspections
A Structural Inspection encompasses the following elements:
  • The interior of the building: walls, ceiling, floors;
  • The exterior of the building: cladding, stairs, balconies, verandas, patios, decks, balustrades;
  • The roof exterior: structure
  • The roof space: framing and party walls;
  • The sub-floor space: timber floor (including supports, floor, ventilation, drainage, structural dampness); and
  • The property within 30m of the house and within the boundaries of the site: car accommodation, detached laundry, ablution facilities and garden sheds, retaining walls where supporting other structures and landscaping retaining walls >700mm high, steps and surface water and storm water drainage where causing or exacerbating foundation instability.
We perform Structural Inspections in Hobart, Launceston and wider Tasmania. All are carried out by an expert structural inspector.
