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.

Why do I need a PCI Inspection Perth?

PCI Inspection Perth

The PCI Inspection Perth is a reconciliation of the major construction items with a focus on the finish of key items in the construction. 

PCI Inspection Perth also known as PCI(practical completion inspection perth) or handover inspection is an inspection of the building work done on your new home just prior to you taking possession of your property from the builder.

A PCI Inspection Perth is an important and not to be ignored report carried out on a newly built home. Why? When a build reaches practical completion, the builder or building supervisor should let you know. The point of a PCI Inspection Perth is not to pick on the builder! We will assess any signs of bad workmanship and we will flag it as well as any other defects found including the cleanliness and state of the home. The main purpose is to determine if the home is free of major defects, is safe, and is fit for occupation by you and your family.

Remember, once you take possesion of your property, your standard warranty period begins. So, it is wise to ensure the build is up to scratch with a PCI Inspection Perth.

Although we highly recommend you also perform a construction progress inspection at each stage of the build, if you just want a PCI Inspection Perth at the conclusion of the build, this is still a very valuable tool to ensure the build quality is up to scratch. We are able to find defects, workmanship quality, allowable tolerances, and more.

If I have done construction progress reports, do I still need a PCI Inspection Perth?

PCI Inspection Perth

The PCI Inspection Perth is not designed to replace the checks conducted during the various building construction inspections. Given time restrictions that often exist at a practical completion inspection perth and the fact that many of the constructed items are no longer visible at the PCI Inspection Perth stage, the ability to check an item may be severely restricted or compromised. As such, although a PCI Inspection Perth is a vital inspection, it is strongly recommended that building construction inspections is considered for any build. 73 PCI Inspection Perth

Defects and Liability Report

Our defects and liability report ensures the builder is liable for any defects uncovered. The builder is liable to remediate defects (at no cost to the client) uncovered during an inspection.

Our Customers

“What I loved most was when Russell said “no such thing as a basic PCI inspection perth” 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 PCI inspection perth 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
