The BASIC Structural Assessment inspection is the foundation of all our inspections and was designed primarily for the budget minded person and is a must for all types of homes. It covers the fundamental performance of the Primary Load Bearing (structural) componentry of a building, where, if structural deficiencies are discovered, can be costly to repair. This is also one of the least expensive written reporting formats, and offers a sense of security. The report is short and concise and is ready for immediate e-mailing if requested, followed by a hard copy.
The BASIC-PLUS Structural Assessment also covers all the fundamental performance of the Primary Load Bearing (structural) componentry of a building, but is presented in a unique “Assessment Performance Matrix” ™ table, that has been specifically developed for this report. Extended additional comments, recommending discretionary improvements and hints on Non Structural maintenance items including damp testing are included. Digital Photos taken during the inspection and are e-mailed only, provided that a suitable e-mail address is given to our office.
NOTE (for a BASIC inspections only):- During our assessment, Digital Photos are taken for future reference should something go wrong, these can be sent for an additional fee, provided that a suitable e-mail address is given to our office.
