  • Following our Waterproofing Inspection Perth, we issue a detailed Waterproofing Inspection report along with images and even video content. Our reports are customised for your property and will not be a standard report, after all how can it be? Each build is completely unique and as such, should be treated that way.
  • The waterproofing inspection report details all findings. We can provide developers, project managers, builders and also the waterproofing contractor all the information and advice needed to rectify any waterproofing defects detected in order to meet the mandatory compliance requirements (Australian Standards 3740 2021).

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.

We organised a building inspection for a property we were interested in purchasing last minute and Russel went above and beyond to help us out.He made time to get to the property before the auction and gave us a very detailed report on the property’s overall condition.As a buyer, it’s given me the confidence to make an informed decision about the property.Highly recommend Russel and the team.

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.

We would highly recommend. Our experience was prompt, very professional & reassuring.

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. The inspection was thorough and it was obvious he had a very good knowledge of building issues and Australian building standards. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you perform same-day waterproofing inspections Perth?

Yes. Our entire business model is focused on getting you the highest quality Waterproofing Inspection report within 24 hours. That’s the WA Building Inspections difference.

Why do I need a Waterproofing Inspection?

Waterpoofing Inspection Perth

Did you know that 70% of buildings constructed since 2000 leak? It’s a scary statistic that has been caused by the building boom in Perth.

The consequences of NOT detecting defective waterproofing at the time of waterproofing installation can be catastrophic and extremely costly when they are finally detected months or years later. By then, it’s too late and you already have major damage to your property that can cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to you.

You can avoid this risk and headache to you and your family by booking a waterpoofing inspection. It’s the cheapest insurance policy you will ever take out.

When is a waterproofing inspection required?

Waterproofing Inspection Perth

A Waterproofing Inspection Perth is generally undertaken while the waterproofing is still visible. For example, in a bathroom, the Waterproofing Inspection Perth should be undertaken before the tiles are laid.

Generally, this is called the ‘lockup inspection’. This should occur when the waterproofing has been laid but no flooring/tiling has commenced and should be timed in cooperation with your builder/project manager.

How about waterproofing inspection for my existing building?

Waterproofing Inspections Perth

Do you suspect that your existing building’s waterproofing has failed? Maybe you have the tell tale signs such as leaks, damp, mould?

For existing houses and commercial premises, our waterproofing inspections Perth focus on detection of potential defects or assess the extent of waterproofing failure. The waterproofing inspection report will include complete details and photos of our investigation and clearly outline recommendations on the necessary repairs and remediation, if any.

What is the Australian standard for waterproofing of wet areas in residential construction?

Australian Standards AS3740 sets out all the compliance requirements for waterproofing in residential properties.

How much does a waterproofing inspection Perth cost?

A Waterproofing Inspection Perth costs $399 Including GST.

Remember, we have a price beat guarantee!

See all our building inspection Perth costs & services.

What Do You Include in the Report for a Waterproofing Inspection?

Waterproofing Inspection Perth

We document our findings, defects and commentary in plain-english. Our Waterproofing Inspection Perth report report also includes comprehensive and full photo reports.

Is a waterproofing inspection included in a stage inspection?

Waterproofing Inspection Perth

Yes. We inspect the waterproofing as part of our stage 4 (before lockup) building construction inspection (stage inspection).

The difference with ordering a dedicated waterproofing inspection is that you can time the inspection at the perfect time, just after the waterproofing has been installed, and before any floor coverings such as tiles are laid. This way, you have complete certainty as to the quality of the waterproofing and can hold your builder/waterproofer to account.

Are waterproofing inspections mandatory?

Waterproofing Inspection


Western Australia is following NSW and QLD as the only states in Australia where new waterproofing installations must be inspected by a building inspector by law. Regardless if its legally mandated or not, it is still worth the cost to undertake a waterproofing inspection Perth fpr your new house build for peace of mind.

While waterproofing inspections Perth do come at a cost, they pay for themselves many times over if waterproofing is defective. The report we produce forces the builder/waterproofer to take action before it’s too late.
