Great service. Sean was incredibly thorough in his inspection of a house we were looking to buy. Sean gave detailed explanations of the issues along with the required work. Sean talked us through the report in detail and we also had several follow up calls to discuss additional questions we had. Highly recommend.

Well worth the money! Sean was really great, came out the very next day after calling him. He is very knowledgeable on everything, checked the whole place thoroughly and so easy to talk to on the phone before booking him, he had all the answers. I was finding it hard to find a good inspector, everyone was so vague about price and what they could do. But Sean knew exactly what he could do and when and was upfront about everything. Sean is definitely someone you want in your corner. Spoke us through everything that he found too. So good!

Sean was very detailed and explained all the aspects of the inspection satisfactorily. I must say that service is not cheap but it provide value for money. All the best Sean and thank you.

Sean was recommended to me by a friend who recently bought a property after I said to him “I need actual building advice, not just some standard inconclusive inspection that leaves me with more questions than answers”. When I first called Sean I said to him “I don’t care much for the written report, I am looking for someone who can attend the site and come back to me with the same advice I would get if I had a family member who is a builder”. Sean was exactly that. The reports Sean produced were great and I am glad to have them but the personal advice was totally priceless. One of the properties turned out to be a total lemon. We were ready to drop $1.2m on it however, after Sean’s inspection/advice, where he highlighted numerous issues including severe structural damage and roof leakages, we walked away. I am certain that decision has saved us hundreds of thousands. The property we did end up buying was not perfect (no property is) - but having Sean look over it means we knew what we were getting. One other important thing - Sean is exactly the person you want doing your inspection because he is not only experienced and knowledgeable about construction but also extremely passionate about it. I know this because I attended a few inspections with him and his attention to detail was beyond reproach. He was right there in the moment with me, treating the inspection as if it was his own money on the line. If you are looking at buying a property and have a mum/dad/brother/sister who is a builder, ask them to inspect it for you. If not, call Sean. Overall - extremely satisfied with Sean’s work highly recommend him to prospective home/apartment owners. Feel free to contact me if you would like further information/insights as to my recommendation.

Sean performed a building inspection on an apartment I was looking to purchase. I can’t thank Sean enough for his services. I had tight time pressures to issue an unconditional offer on the property. Sean made himself available the following morning to complete the inspection. Immediately after the inspection, Sean called me to talk me through the items identified during his inspection. By early afternoon, Sean provided me with a detailed report and offered his time if I had any further questions for him. Without Sean’s service, I would have purchased a property riddled with problems. 10/10 for quality, value and a professional service. I can’t recommend Sean more highly. Will definitely be using Sean for the next property inspection. Thanks again for your work!
