As part of a full pre-purchase building inspection, Action property Inspections includes a pergola, decking and/or verandah inspection (as part of the house exterior inspection).   A deck inspection is very important as decay damage, inadequate bracing, and loose boards all compromise deck safety.  To be aware of any potential problems, it is therefore vital to incorporate a comprehensive analysis of deck, verandah, and pergola structures.

We check:

Pergola

  • General building compliance
  • Decay
  • Undersized timbers
  • inadequate bracing

Decking

  • Decay damage
  • Loose boards
  • Overspaning boards
  • Incorrectly installed decking

Verandah Structure

  • Building compliance
  • Adequate bracing and tie downs
  • Overspaning timbers
