WHAT YOU GET

(Sample - some information included for information purposes only)

SUMMARY

The following is a summary of the inspector's findings during this inspection.

 

The inspection of 20/20 House Inspection Services is a current condition, visual inspection of the conditions of the elements inspected on that particular day only.  It is no guarantee against failure of any element or system inspected.

 

The report should be seen as a reasonable attempt to identify any Significant Fault or Defect visible at the time of the visual Inspection rather than an all-encompassing report dealing with the home from every aspect. The reporting of any Significant Fault or Defect is on an exceptional basis, rather than reporting on items, which are in acceptable condition for their age.

 

CHECK LIST 1

OBSERVATIONS - GENERAL

Some claddings are more prone to causing leaky building problems. We look at the claddings most at risk and how they are applied to the house.

 

There was a significant differences among the treatments, with untreated timber being used in timber frame in 1998-2004; also with other factors, the year of construction can help identify homes with a higher than normal likelihood of leakage problems.

 

Particular attributes ( IMPORTANT ! )

DESIGN ISSUES

Particular attributes are architectural details and application faults which have been identified as problematic with conventional/ monolithic cladding and moisture ingress.

 

These features may not allow adequately for deflection or drainage of water unless particular care is taken in the design and construction.

Risk factors ( VERY IMPORTANT ! )

WORKMANSHIP ISSUES
We look at risk areas and how to identify

if your home or a home you are thinking of buying is at risk of being a leaky building.

 

Leaky buildings often have features in common. The more of these features a home has the higher the risk of it being a leaky building.
