Building Condition Assessment
Sydney & Greater NSW
Owning a property is an investment, and it’s important to maintain that asset in the best possible condition. A building may look perfect at first glance but could be hiding multiple underlying defects. Endeavour Engineering offers building assessments and are able to develop solutions for any potential problems found during our assessments.
Let’s discuss building assessments in detail so you can make an informed decision about whether your property needs one.
What is a Building Assessment?
What Is Assessed During a Building Condition Assessment?
Expert engineers inspect the following when conducting a building assessment:
- The building’s structural elements (e.g. walls, floors, windows, roof etc);
- All exterior surfaces of the property;
- Evidence of cracking, corrosion, and spalling;
- The sturdiness of balustrades on balconies;
- Waterproofing of the property;
- Building items not completed in conduct with Australian Building Standards and the NCC
When Would You Need a Building Assessment
Endeavour Engineering is licenced and experienced to perform a thorough building assessment for property owners throughout New South Wales; here is when you may require one:
Prior to Commencing Building Repairs
If you are investing in building repairs, we recommend proceeding with a building assessment first. A thorough investigation will reveal your property’s condition and any defects in detail, so you’ll be sure all minor and major flaws are reported.
In the Pre-Purchasing Process
Engaging Endeavour Engineering to perform a Building Assessment before you finalise the purchase of a property is a smart move. It’ll enable you to justify the investment, and if you find previously undisclosed flaws, you may be able to negotiate the price with the seller.
Before committing to a building renovation, ensure your plans won’t be derailed by costly repairs down the line. Performing a Building Assessment can help identify potential problems before they become more serious and impact any renovations you undertake.
Property Handover Inspections
To ensure a successful move-in and maximal long-term satisfaction with your new building, we recommend obtaining a property handover inspection through a detailed Building Assessment. Get ahead of any potential issues that may arise by addressing them now so you can stay put without relocating down the line due to any unforeseen flaws.
Forecasting Maintenance Expenses
You can only benefit from your property for a long time if you maintain it properly. Periodically opting for a building assessment can let you forecast maintenance and repair expenses so that you can arrange for funds in a timely manner. Not proactively understanding your property’s condition can expose you to financial emergencies if damages exacerbate and reveal themselves in the form of accidents.
- Please send us an email ([email protected]) outlining your concerns with your property and if you have noticed any defects.
- Endeavour Engineering will then reply to your email with a fee proposal for the Building Assessment.
- Once the fee proposal is approved, our engineering experts will inspect the property.
- Finally, our team will send you a building assessment report according to our findings at the inspection of the property.
