Building Construction Inspection Services – Lock-up Stage

lockuphead

Building Under Construction Inspection Services available for Perth!

It is at this stage that bricks and mortar are looking more like home so it is important to make sure the building can be secured to prevent unwanted casual entry. From now on internal fixtures and finishing’s are being installed and with a secured building they can stay that way.

Before these fixtures get installed it is important to make sure the construction up to this stage has been carried out with good building practises and meet Australian Standards; are ceiling installations & wall finishes good, are electrical and plumbing services correctly positioned, how is the general appearance? These and other questions can be answered by engaging a Housecalls “Lock-up” stage building inspection, our inspection reports have been developed by the Housecalls team from many years of experience as practising builders, they are designed to provide you with the best information available in an easy to read and understand format for this “Lock-up” stage of the construction.

“There is no house more beautiful than the house you happily live in!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan
