Russel McCarthy was absolutely 100% on the mark and worth twice the money I outlaid vs what it would have cost me to fix mistakes he picked up during my house build.Sarah in the office was always fast to schedule in times to check the key completion stages of the build for checking and Russel was always on point for the right standards and even just the minimum quality finish of works completed by all trades.They were also flexible with a whole range of payment options.Apologies for being blunt but if you are building or renovating these days it is a no brainer to have an inspector in your corner.If I ever build again, I will be budgeting for a building inspector again with no hesitation.

Very happy with the ease of booking, level of service, and comprehensive report. There was a clear explanation of all the information in the report, along with pictures which was most helpful. A very easy company to deal with and the friendly inspector, David, was kind enough to call me to talk through some rectification works that the seller did on the property after the initial inspection discovered some issues.

Had Russell from WA Building inspections conduct our prepurchase inspection requirements last week and I couldn’t recommend him/them enough. The Report was detailed with lots of photos and the best price I found in the metro area. I was not feeling confident in my knowledge of the building and Russell has gone above and beyond to break down and explain all the elements of the building and the report to me. Not only do I feel more confident in my home purchase, the guy even had me chuckling and enjoying the process. Thanks so much for making this a smooth process!

I found WA Building Inspections Perth very helpful. They responded quickly to my request, provided a competitive price, did a detailed report and then discussed the report with me for a lengthy period. Russel did my inspection and he could not have been more helpful in explaining the report and recommending opportunities to address findings. I would definitely go back to WA Building Inspections Perth and Russel for advice and future building inspections.

Russell’s pre-purchase report was exactly what we needed for peace of mind. He was thorough and detailed, outlining what he could and couldn’t achieve, with action plans recommended where needed! We were unsure about some wording or recommendations but Russell answered our calls and explained these perfectly and the suggested way forward. 100% worth the price, especially if you need that peace of mind at the end.

Very thorough inspection conducted by Russell. Picked heaps of defects in our roof and compiled a very detailed report about everything done wrong. He clearly explained the problems against the Australian Construction standards and code. I'd highly recommend WA Building Inspections to anyone in doubt of their house construction or before purchasing an established property. We're very lucky to have such a professional service. Worth every dollar paid.Thanks Russell & Sarah.

I had a fantastic experience with Russell recently with a pre-purchase inspection. Being interstate and purchasing was always hoing to be diffivult.I was very impressed with Russell's knowledge, patience and pride in his work. Russell took the time after working hours on the day that the report was completed to have an in depth discussion about the detail on the report. I came out of the discussion feeling a lot more confident.Russell is easy to talk to and knows how to explain complex issues in layman's terms. Can't recommend highly enough!
09:18 28 Aug 23
Best decision I made. Russell is an absolute legend. Answered all my questions, explained everything beautifully, patient, and most importantly - had my back when dealing with the builders. I had to go through 2 PCIs with the builders, finally on the 3rd did they fix all the issues. If it wasn't for Russell's knowledge and advice, I never would've gotten my house in the acceptable condition it is now. Shout out to Sarah as well for booking in my final last minute inspection, due to builders messing me around. Top shelf service and fair priced.Marina

Russell gave us genuine customer service and nothing was too much trouble.

We felt comfortable in asking questions and were given the information that we needed. Russell was very generous with his time and we would happily engage him again.

Engaged WA Building Inspections to undertake our building inspection - being based in Qld and not being able to see the house, we needed a thorough report. Very happy with the speed of conducting the inspection and getting the report to us, and the price. Had a few follow up questions that Russell was able to answer for us. Would definitely use again

I called Russell for a last minute building & pest inspection and although he was very busy, he still managed to squeeze us in. He completed a very detailed report, which both our broker and conveyancer made comments on how impressed they were with how through he was, which is a huge compliment to him and his service! I called Russell after reading the report with a couple of questions, which he took 15 minutes to explain to me everything I asked and more. He is very professional and knowledgeable, and moving forward I would only ever use his service. Sarah his admin team is also very lovely to deal with and responsive, they both made the whole process so easy! Huge compliments to them both. Highly recommend!! And very well priced.

We had a fantastic experience with Russell recently with a pre-purchase inspection. My husband and I are first home buyers and have very little first hand experience with building issues and we were absolutely blown away by Russell's knowledge, patience and pride in his work. Russell took the time after working hours on the day that the report was completed to have an in depth discussion about the detail on the report. We came out of the discussion feeling a lot more confident in our understanding of level of work required with the property. Russell is easy to talk to and knows how to explain complex issues in layman's terms. Can't recommend highly enough!

Russell McCarthy was able to fit us in very last minute despite already being booked out. We had a strict contract deadline and the outcome of his review was going to determine the success or failure of our property purchase. The fact that he went over and above to help us despite being hotly in demand demonstrates his humility and strong passion to help others which goes beyond just doing his job. He is highly rated and the best in his field yet is down to earth and genuinely kind. I will only use him going forward and recommend others do the same. A property purchase is a big financial decision and not worth risking by going to anyone other than Russell.
10:46 01 May 23
The whole process was seamless and easy from start to finish. WA BIP liaise with the agents to organise inspections and the report provided is thorough. The inspection was organised at short notice and the report was provided within a few days.The inspector (Russell in our case) took the time to explain his findings in a manner even a dummy like me can understand!I appreciated the way Russell and the team made the whole thing easy and would recommend them to anyone on the fence about who to use. Thanks!

Russell carried out the PCI (Practical Completion Inspection) for our first property (in Willetton) on Wednesday the 21st of September 2022. He conducted the inspection very professionally. He arrived well in advance at the property. So, when we went to meet him at the site he was already halfway through the inspection.After he had finished inspecting the home he discussed, both with us and with the Builder appointed Site Supervisor, about the various aspects of the inspection in plain & clear terms. The discussion was a learning experience for us (the clients) as we learnt some essential things about building structures.Inspection Report was detailed, specific and clear. Also, his T&Cs are acceptably good. Last but not least, his service is reasonably priced and is affordable. If asked I will definitely recommend him to my friends and I am confident they will thank me for recommending Russell & WA Building Inspections.

I highly recommend Russell . I chose him because of all his positive reviews and that paid off as he was so thorough and found many defects.. every dollar spent was worth it as I would have never picked up many of those faults myself and I’m extremely grateful . I also found the company was very accommodating in scheduling my inspection at short notice.

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.
