There are specific internal wet areas of house that are fully inspected as part of a complete pre-purchase property inspection.   Wet areas are the most common problem places and the internal areas that will cost you the most to fix!  Action Property Inspections offers Brisbane’s most comprehensive building inspection service.  We understand that careful attention to detail will save our clients tens of thousand of dollars long term.  So all our pre-purchase inspection reports come with detailed descriptions of any issues and photographs – so you can clearly see the problem, and so can the seller.  Our reports are well known for getting the seller back to the table to renegotiate the purchase price.

Common problems with wet areas

Bathroom, toilet and shower inspections are required as these are known problem areas when inspecting a property.  When we look for mould, peeling paint or wall cracks in a wet area, we’re looking for signs of BIG problems with plumbing and ventilation.  We understand that a tiny issue on the surface often means a big problem behind the walls.  Your wet area inspection could detect:

  • Leakages
  • Corrosion
  • Decay
  • Moisture penetration
  • Sewerage leakage

Wet area issues are big issues because they don’t just affect the value of your potential property, they can affect your family’s health.  We take great care when inspecting every element of your new home because your family’s financial future is not the only risk you’re facing.
