Ringwood Building Inspections
Cracks to walls are unsightly, but they may also be a sign of severe structural issues afoot in a house. So, how do you tell if a small crack will turn into a huge major crack on your lounge room wall as time passes?
The freshly-painted walls you admired in the open-for-inspection may be concealing a possible structural defect or a fracture.
It is vital to understand whether a wall crack is easily repaired with a little bit of strategically placed filler along with some paint or if expensive structural repairs in your house are called for.
Underestimate the seriousness of cracks in walls and you may end up with spending thousands to repair
Wall cracks fall into three major classes:
1/Interior wall cracks for example cracks at the plasterboard or gyprock;
2/Exterior wall cracks like cracks in the brickwork, surface or rendering of walls;
3/Cracks in foundation walls.

AS 3600.2 recommends that a routine inspection for termite management be undertaken annually but unfortunately not many people go by this principle which can cause problems with your warranty
A termite inspection during the building & pest inspection is a visual inspection only and not a invasive inspection,its carried out using thermal cameras, moisture meters and other specialized equipment, however the use of this equipment is beyond the minimum requirements of the Australian Standards
