As part of a full pre-purchase building inspection, we conduct a thorough garage inspection. Among other issues, a garage inspection will analyse moisture penetration as it is a major issue for garages that have a concrete slab. Poor drainage and deficient slab edge protection can lead to moisture penetration resulting in spalling damage and general slab deterioration. Excessive concrete cracking is generally caused by a combination of reasons including drying shrinkage, thermal contraction, or applied loads. Poor construction and lack of maintenance, and can lead to damaged internal linings, inadequate bracing and tie downs, defective garage door operation, and faulty electronics. When you’re buying a home in Brisbane, always trust a thorough, reliable building inspector.
While the garage may not be the top priority when choosing your new home, it can cost you money, time and frustration if there are problems down the line. Because we do a thorough pre-purchase inspection, we make sure that whole house meets your standards and requirements, including the garage.
