    ABI have conducted thousands of building and property inspections of both residential and commercial properties, identifying structural, non-structural and maintenance related items of concern. We provide this same service throughout Bouvard also.

    The greater majority of glazing bars which form a colonial styled pattern to windows are decorative only and adhered to the glass via double sided tape. Over time the adhesion reduces and the bars fall off. Once the residue from the old adhesive is removed from both the glass and rear of the decorative trim the glazing bars can be reinstated with new double sided tape.

    ABI have conducted thousands of building and property inspections of both residential and commercial properties, identifying structural, non-structural and maintenance related items of concern. We provide this same service throughout Lakelands also.

    On a recent inspection (see image opposite) the most common causes for peeling paint and water stained eaves is water backing up over the rear edge of the gutters in certain weather conditions (the back edge of gutter is lower than the front) and also the intersection of the downpipe and gutter requiring re-sealing..

  7. Crack Ceiling JointCracking within ceilings can be the result of failure of fixings, poor installation (such as no back-blocking or incorrect application of adhesive or fixings) or even failure of roof framing components.

    Extensive cracking, sagging of ceilings, cornices moving away from wall etc are should be inspected by a building expert.  

  8. Door swollen and not sealedThe most common cause for external timber doors to jamb on the doors frame or swell and damaged the face of the door is the absence of painting to the top and bottom edges of the doors.

    Door manufacture warranties require external doors to be sealed on all edges, if your door jambs or swells use a mirror and check the underside and top.

  9. Battery Smoke DetectorJust becuase a home has one or more smoke detectors this does not mean they are either compliant or are located in the correct position.

    This photos is a battery only powered detector, which is not compliant nor installed in the correct position.

    Have a building expert check this at the time of a pre-purchase inspection.

  10. Broken bricks due to plumbing chaseIn residential homes it is standard prcatice for services such as electrical and plumbing water pipes to be chased into walls (chasing is the cutting and chiselling out of a rebate within the brick wall) to enable the services to be concealed in the wall.

    If the chase is too deep or the chiselling is too agressive this can cause the structual integrity of the wall to be comprised and ongoing visable cracks apearing in the internal plaster surface of walls.
