Roof Inspections For Potential Problems

A roof inspection can prove to be a daunting task, with some inspection companies adopting the policy that a building inspector should not access a roof higher than 3.6 meters.  Unfortunately there’s no replacement for “eyes on” roof inspections.  When you book a full pre-purchase property inspection, we’ll make sure your roof is in good shape.

Action Property Inspections will physically conduct an exterior roof inspection including single and two storey homes providing it is safe to do so, and the weather permits it.  A risk assessment will be conducted before each inspection to ensure safe access is possible.  Action Property Inspections gives you the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  So you can buy a property with confidence – knowing exactly what you’re in for.  For that reason, we provide careful roof inspections and provide detailed images and explanations of any potential problems we find.  It matters.  It’s the difference between a blue chip investment and a lemon!
