Ivanhoe Property Inspection and Building Inspections
The Ivanhoe area is a beautiful old established area with classical older homes mixed with newer properties. Dampness and drainage issues including rising damp are the most common problems in Ivanhoe Home Inspections. If the Ivanhoe home you are looking to buy at has an older bathroom there is a good chance that there are leaks that are not visible and therefore rot is in the floor.
