Andrew’s Expert Advice on Heathwood
A professional building inspector is someone with the right qualifications, knowledge and experience. Being a qualified builder for over 35 years and professional inspector for over 25, I know the ins and outs of every house type in Brisbane. Even newer suburbs like Heathwood shouldn’t be missed. I always inspect new houses for building defects in case builders have cut corners and ignored regulation standards.
