Roof Inspections Geelong – The Top 5 Common Roofing Issues

Cracked or Misplaced Roof Tiles: Beyond mere aesthetics, cracks in roof tiles invite water penetration, potentially leading to leaks. Swift repairs are the key to preventing further damage.

Blocked Gutters: Blocked gutters spell trouble for water drainage, risking foundation issues. Regular gutter maintenance is crucial to keep things flowing smoothly.

Damaged or Inadequate Flashing and Drainage: Inadequate flashing can compromise a roof’s waterproofing, leading to issues like leakage back into the roof space. Proper drainage is paramount to avoid these complications.

Loose Roof Sheets: Loose roof sheets pose a significant risk during storms. Please quickly secure them and prevent additional damage, keeping your home safe.

Rusted Roof Sheets and Plumbing: Rust jeopardizes structural integrity, from weakened roofs to plumbing issues. It’d be important to address rust quickly to prevent water leaks and associated problems.

The Domino Effect: Consequences of Untreated Issues

Risk of Roof Collapse: Escalating issues may lead to a compromised roof structure and, in extreme cases, collapse, posing safety risks.

Water Leaks and Their Consequences: Water leaks are no small matter; they’re the mischief-makers behind mould growth, sagging plaster, and fungal decay. Creating a healthy living environment is a top priority.

Adam was recommended to me, and he was very thorough in the Building and Pest Inspection. Booked in easily and quickly, and received the report by the end of that week. He picked up on all issues with the house with detailed photos and images. Would definitely recommend!

Really happy with Adam’s inspection service. He is easy to talk to and very professional. It is my first time investing in a land property in Geelong, Victoria and he explained to me specific questions I have on the report. Highly recommended.

We called Adam to get a quote and he managed to book in building and pest inspection within 1 day. We got the report within 3-4 hours after inspection. Adam was really thorough, and his report was comprehensive. There are pictures for every defect was found which makes it super easy for us to understand the problems for future repairs and maintenance. I emailed and asked him a few questions about the report at 7pm and he called immediately to explain to me in details. Excellent works, I Highly recommend Adam.

Adam has always made himself available at short notice, providing a very detailed report with photo evidence to make it easier to understand. His service has provided me with confidence throughout the build that the workmanship and compliance to building regulations were being scrutinised and itemised if found to be not up to standard. His services have been like having a protection policy in place, allowing me to enjoy the build without worrying about the building process, something I have very little knowledge of.

How Long does the inspection take?

The time taken for the inspection can vary quite a bit, due to the size of a property and the type of inspection required. Generally it can take anywhere from 45mins to around 3 hours depending on the amount of defects present and the amount of accessible inspection zones.

When will I receive my report?

Reports are sent once the invoice has been paid on the same day as the inspection, whether it be within hours of the inspection or in the evening on the day.

What do you look for during an inspection?

Depending on the type of inspection will determine the type of reporting methods used. For example during a Building and pest inspection we will look for Major, Minor, Safety hazards and timber pest related issues throughout the property.
In a new construction build inspection, we will look for non compliant issues relating back to the Australian Standards and areas that are of a poor quality or standards.
Ensure the building has been constructed according to the documented building contract.

Can I attend the inspection?

You are more than welcome to attend the inspection. It is advised to ask any questions after the inspection is complete to ensure the inspector is not distracted and has full concentration during the inspection for your benefit.
