We service most of Queensland with key locations throughout the state including the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.
A building inspection is designed to give you independent and objective advice about the physical state of a building. This advice enables you to make an informed decision, usually about whether to purchase a property or not.
Inspection reports are a snapshot in time. Therefore, you should always ensure you refer to a current inspection.
These inspections are also carried out for the purpose of risk management, new construction management, dispute resolution, insurance claims, compliance with legislation and regulations and to inform renovation and extension decisions.
Jim’s Building Inspections Queensland originated in Brisbane in 2012. Each of our team members operate in territories that they are familiar with and as a consequence they are often the local go to expert for that area of building work. For example, inner city and inner urban construction around Brisbane, Sandgate in the North and out to Ipswich in the South East. We have experts on the Sunshine coast and the Gold Coast which gives us good coverage to service clients through South East Queensland.
Our inspectors are Licensed Builders with specific experience in Building along with training in Termite and Timber pest which is essential when booking in an inspection in Queensland. Our team also have extensive experience in new construction supervision with some of Queensland’s major and prestige builders and know what to look for in terms of timber frame, brick construction and even infill developments. So when you are looking at your next Build, turn to us for representation during the stages of construction.
Asbestos identification and testing is another service which our guys in Queensland help clients with. This can be for homeowners and also for commercial workplaces that require Asbestos Audits, registers and Management plans.
With property shows like the Block, more and more people are catching on to the renovation bug. This can be an exciting time for anyone embarking on a DIY project but Jims Building inspections often find that these clients are unaware of what materials they are working with and the potential dangers associated with them.
Asbestos can be found in vinyl, lagging and wall sheeting just to name a few. When planning for any renovation it’s important to get an expert in to assess the areas and test to find what the material is and its condition. Australia has the highest rate of Asbestos disease per capita in the world and was used extensively on buildings in Queensland built prior to 1989. It is estimated 1 in 3 buildings throughout Australia contain some form of Asbestos
