Renovation Stage Inspection
We understand that embarking on renovation or expansion projects for your beloved house is an exciting moment. When you’re ready to begin your renovation, it’s essential to be aware of Australian Building Standards and Construction Requirements (NCC) to ensure your project is structurally sound, leak-free, and compliant.
A Plus House Inspection can guide you through the entire renovation process, whether it’s a large-scale expansion or a small renovation. Whether you’ve just purchased a dream house and want to restore it to its original charm or give it a modern update, we can help you with our expertise. We specialize in projects such as building expansions to create more space, renovating bathrooms or kitchens, or preparing an investment property for sale to maximize returns. With tailored building inspection plans, we can help you anticipate and address potential issues during your renovation journey.
Before the project begins, we conduct a comprehensive property inspection to assess its existing condition. This initial condition report identifies areas that require immediate attention, such as bathrooms and kitchens. During the renovation or expansion process, the most crucial aspect is ensuring that your construction team adheres to Australia’s national building standards. It’s important to note that some renovation or remodeling teams may not be registered and licensed builders with the Victorian Building Authority (VBA). Their lack of professionalism could potentially lead to hidden problems in your house post-renovation, requiring costly repairs in the future—a concern for every houseowner.
