It is simple: Perth’s highest quality pre-purchase building reports, personal, professional and efficient service.
Owner, Peter Williamson is a qualified Professional Structural Engineer. He has a Bachelor of Engineering university degree backed by 35 years of experience in building inspections and structural design. He has extensive practical construction experience, including large civil, commercial and residential construction. He has personally carried out most of the trade work to build a second story on his own home. Peter can also give you on the spot professional advice on any plans that you may have for structural changes to your new home.
Your report is personally prepared by Peter. Within one clear business day of your inspection, your report is emailed to you and your agent immediately on completion and then printed, bound and posted to you. It is a professionally presented, easy to understand, descriptive exception format with photographs to clarify details and concepts. Your report is solution oriented and will make a clear distinction between structural and maintenance issues and their implications, so that the information can be clearly interpreted by you and your agent in reference to your purchase contract.
When you are looking through the property you are purchasing, you are viewing it mainly in terms of the lifestyle that it will deliver to you and you may therefore miss important structural and/or maintenance issues. When we are inspecting the property, we are viewing it through trained and experienced eyes and will identify issues that you may have missed.
If structural issues are observed during a building inspection, most other building inspectors are not qualified to give you professional advice regarding the structural integrity of a building. In this case they will recommend that you call in a Professional Structural Engineer for a second, qualified opinion. We are often called in to provide definitive professional advice in such situations.
This means that the purchaser has been forced into a situation where they must pay for two building inspections when they could have paid once by using Take 2 Home Inspections in the first place.
