As part of a full pre-purchase building inspection, Action Property Inspections conducts a roof interior inspection.

Roofing inspections need to be performed with care, as an amateur may damage the insulation decreasing its effectiveness. It can also prove hazardous as one wrong step can send the inspector through the roof.

A roof inspection report will detect decay in the battens and rafters as well as damaged sarking and delignification of timbers. This roof inspection report is important as decay is a serious condition, and can cause harm to your family. Call Action Property Inspections today to book your home inspection.

Action Property Inspections are licensed, professionally accredited and insured QBSA Master Builder, and members of Institute of Building Consultants, so you can rest assured your building inspection will be of the highest quality.
