Russell provided us with a very detailed report when reinspecting some roof work at a property we were buying. He explained everything very thoroughly and has a great knowledge of the building industry. We were in a very difficult situation and Russell went above and beyond to help us. I highly recommend Russell and will only use WA Building Inspections in the future.

With only a limited time gap, and several other companies unable to meet the terms of contract, I tried WA Building Inspections. From the moment I could book online within 24hrs, to the very professional and prompt service from Russell, it has been a very simple process. We received a comprehensive 27 page report for a combined building and Pest report, for a awesome cost. I couldn't recommend Russell and his services more highly. Thank you so much for making this so easy for me.

Our Customers

“What I loved most was when Russell said “no such thing as a basic building inspection” he said “it’s comprehensive because it MUST be comprehensive” – His report was littered with maintenance items and pointed out some major safety issues with the house that we have certainly missed, we eventually purchased the home and the items rectified at the seller expense – 5 Stars Russ – Well done”
Lilly – Burns Beach, Perth

“Russell did an extremely detailed building and pest inspection on a property in Hillman we were looking to buy, the report highlighted some major defects and led to us being able to pull out of the contract, I used Russell again on another property and the report was just as detailed, he settled our concerns and we ended up buying the home, Russell has since been able to assist us with council approvals for upcoming renovations, costings and trades, he has demonstrated over and over that he will go the extra mile, we are not just a number, that he is with us for the long run. I could not recommend him enough.”
Mathew – Hillman, Perth

“Service far beyond just the report, working with the agent, the tenants who were in the home, collecting keys, dropping them off, the 45 minute consultation once the report was done and for no extra cost – money well spent, I felt satisfied I used an inspector as detailed as WA Building inspections.”
Sarah – Nedlands, Perth
