Building Inspections Melbourne

Building and Pest inspection reports provided in Melbourne range from very detailed to very short and of little value so please ensure you aware of the report you will be receiving and always go with a company experienced in inspecting Melbourne houses and also renovating and repairing Melbourne houses. Plain English reports which are easy to understand. Over 200 point inspection. We highlight any defects with the home, advise remedies and approximate costs to repair the home (so you have a good idea what extra costs you may be up for).

Full time professional inspectors (that’s all we do). We give the home a score of between 1 to 10 stars comparing it to other houses of the same style and age. Safe and Sound P.I. are totally independent and have no connections with agents or contractors. Inspectors own the company (no subcontractors) so we will offer the best service possible to our clients.

Safe and sound P.I. have a licensed plumber and a licensed electrician available for a more in depth report or for any alterations needed.
