Other issues to understand whilst Building Inspections routine:

Safety concerns/hazards

  • Tree’s overgrown branches.
  • Rotten fencing and any potential collapse issues are inspected during the house inspection.

Wall cladding

  • Exterior wall cladding for any irregularity, major cracking.
  • Disproportionate gap between the window frames caused by continuous footings/wall movement.
  • Constant rise in wetness.
  • Major irregularity and cracks may point out a noteworthy issue with the footings of the residence which may require underpinning mechanism. Underpinning is supposed be the last resort after all other options have expired.

Internal floor levels

  • Jagged floors may indicate footings issues and re-stumping may be necessary.
  • On slab dwellings bumpy floors may specify extreme cracking of the slab footing which will be expensive repair ordeal.
  • Sometimes an uneven floor may just specify that the home was not leveled sufficiently and may not cause any key structural issue.

Window frame rot

  • Window frame decay may occur with poor maintenance.
  • Any fungal decomposition (rot) of wood should be removed as this is favors termite infestation and also further worsening of the structure.
  • Fractured window panes require replacement for safety reasons.

Gutters, downpipes

  • sewer waste build up will cause corrosion and impending leakage.
  • Down pipes are sometimes not linked to rain water drainage in old homes Adelaide.
  • Any surplus water in the region of the home can be the reason rising damp problems, which is conducive to termite influx and may cause movement cracking in walls over time due to surplus water breach into the footings.


  • It is essential that water does not accumulate around the bottom of the home walls and that all drains are correctly attached to respective drainage pipes.
  • Surface water should be aimed away from the domicile which is assessed in our House Inspection service. Again, this may be the origin footings movement over time, is conducive to termite infestation and can cause rising damp and fungal decay.


  • We examine for any leaking tap heads, traps, shower wall and base tiles during the house inspection in Gold Coast.
  • Shower tile leaking is frequent in older and vacant homes which should be habitually inspected to be professionally re-sealed.
  • Shower tap flanges and tap wall penetrations should all be sealed to stop water admission into the wall cavity to avoid damp related problems and decay.
  • Leaking bathrooms into the sub floor is an area frequent for termite invasion due to their liking for damp, dark and moist environment.
