What we believe in

 

Coffs Coast Building & Pest Inspections offer comprehensive building and pest inspections. We treat every inspection very seriously and pride ourselves in offering a reliable and comprehensive service to home owners and for those who are looking to purchase a home or investment property.

 

We provide a report available on the same day of the inspection which contains not only a written report but is backed up with photographic evidence. Being from the building industry, we are aware of construction methods used in buildings and often pick up details overlooked by other providers.

It will include any significant building defects or problems such as rising damp, movement in the walls (cracking), safety hazards or a faulty roof. Problems which, if left unchecked, could prove costly to repair.
