PCM Concepts

Our Inspections

All inspections we undertake are fixed price and in accordance with Australian Standards (we actually do more). Compare prices on the Internet, you will find our prices represent the best value for money and our reports the most comprehensive. For more detail, see the FAQ page. We are committed to child safety. Our pool barrier inspections are mostly FREE!

You will receive a detailed report with lots of photos that gives a snapshot of the condition of the property. Our inspections check for dampness, floor movement, cracking, leaks, light operation, powerpoint operation, RCD protection, construction material condition, structural condition, roof covering condition and tile condition (amongst others). There are no hidden costs as these are all standard inclusions. For more detail, see the FAQ page. Discounts apply for War Veterans and Aged Pensioners (proof required).

Not all Building Inspectors are Qualified!

Did you know that in WA, there is no requirement for Building Inspectors to be actual Builders? AS4349.1 states: ‘The person carrying out a property inspection should be suitably qualified and experienced.’ The use of the would ‘should’ rather than ‘shall’ enables non-qualified, non-experienced (and probably non-insured) people to perform inspections. Why take a risk and trust an unqualified person to report upon what will most likely be one of the highest value transactions you ever make?

At PCMC, our inspections are undertaken by a Registered Builder and Engineer. If you are going to shop around, ask for their Builder’s Registration number and then check it at the Building Commission page (http://www.buildingcommission.wa.gov.au/consumers/find-a-registered-building-service/builders). While you are at it, you may want to ask if they have Professional Indemnity Insurance and are in physical condition to crawl under a house or inside a tight roof space!

"We secured the services of Craig Forster at PCM Concepts to do the buildings inspection for us. It has not been easy navigating through various hitches with the purchase since being back in UK but Craig was helpful from the start and although we had to change the inspection date several times he made sure he fitted in with the schedule. The inspection was thorough and very informative. It also gave us plenty of information on how to remedy various maintenance issues that came to light. We would have no hesitation in recommending Craig to friends or family. We would use his services again ourselves."

"Andrew Purcell: We employed Craig Forster of PCM Concepts to undertake two Building Inspections for us in Mandurah. The first a large 4 bed, 4 bath home in Dudley Park, Mandurah and the second a large 4 bed 2 bath home in Halls Head, Mandurah. In both cases we were more than pleased with Craig’s services. He writes a detailed and helpful report that is, in our opinion, as good or better than we have experienced in Australia, and we have employed Inspectors on 8 seperate occasions in the last 15 years. Craig writes an honest, in depth report, with photos, and where he finds a problem he suggests methodology to fix the item in question. PCM Concepts are good value for money, helpful and reliable and on both occasions Craig arrived at the properties on time as agreed. He delivered to us the full report within the same day or at latest in 24 hours. Our opinion is that PCM Concepts go above and beyond the average in this field and we would highly recommend them to any prospective buyer. Kind regards Andrew & Angela Purcell South Perth"

"PCM Concepts was recommended to me do a building inspection report by a friend who is also a builder.

I was very happy with the service from the initial phone call and quote through to the thorough report received very promptly after the inspection was finalised. The price was very reasonable as well.

I would recommend Craig from PCM Concepts to anyone wanting a building inspection report as he was very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and reliable."

"I recently engaged Craig from PCMConcepts to complete my PCI on my new build. I contacted Craig via email and he immediately got back to me and was able to come to my PCI at the time I required and with only a couple of days notice. Craig arrived on time and was very thorough with his report, pointing out the smallest of things that we would have missed ourselves and
provided a very detailed report on the same day that was submitted to our building company.
I highly recommend his service to anyone looking for a professional building inspector."

"Craig has been extremely responsive and helpful to request. The inspection report is very impressive - it doesn't only highlight high risk and maintenance items but also advise how and what to buy to fix issues at low cost."

"I bought a house recently and needed to conduct a buiding and pest inspection prior to settlement. I found Craig to be very efficient and prompt with my request and also took care of the pest inspection through a reputable company. The report I received was very thorough and included colour pictures of the inspection he performed on the property with his recommondations for any issue's that needed to be addressed
His price was very reasonable and I can recommend him to any one who needs a building inspection."
