ABS Inspections - Building Consultants
Construction Progress Inspections
For the discerning owner with a new house or extensions under construction.
We offer independent inspections at critical stages of construction. If you need building progress inspections, ABS inspections are for you. This service will assist you with building problems, help owner builders, assessment of the standard work carried out or ass progress claims.
It is a small investment to help solve a dispute, keep the job running smoothly or just reassurance.
While the building is being constructed there should be an overseer who is aware of building requirements to perform regular inspection and reports, to ensure that the building is constructed to your expectations.
We prefer to work for our clients interests without causing added tension or conflict with the contractor so the building process is not delayed by problems or rectification work during its construction.

Pre-sale Building Report
Pre-sale building and pest reports are similar to our pre-purchase reports, however they are prepared for the vendor so that they know the true condition of the property and can attend to any problems prior to putting the property up for sale
These reports make the sale of the property much easier and give you confidence as you sell your home.
Common Question Customers ask is "Why should I use you instead of a cheaper alternative?"
