All too often, purchasers overlook the fact that buying a home can be risky and stressful if it’s not done properly.
Whether you’re purchasing your dream home, building a new home, renovating or purchasing an investment property, our capabilities ensure that you get the best results.
A thorough inspection avoids costly surprises and is an invaluable component of a well planned purchase!
A home inspection is a visual, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home that provides one of the most valuable indicators when deciding to purchase a property.
Our inspections provide an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the home, providing you with an expert third party opinion and professional report on the condition of the property.
Our inspection reports provide advice regarding the incidence of major defects and an opinion regarding the incidence of minor defects, relative to the condition of similar homes that have been reasonably well maintained.
Our inspections comply with the requirements of the current Australian Standards and we inspect the following areas, where safe and reasonable access is available;
(a) The interior of the home.
(b) The roof space.
(c) The exterior of the home.
(d) The sub-floor space.
(e) The roof exterior.
(f) The property within 30 m of the home subject to inspection.

When purchasing a new home for my family, I wanted to make sure that I knew all about the potential properties prior to committing the considerable financial and personal investment required. I have trusted John from Adelaide Home Inspection to provide a professional and technical insight into the condition of a number of properties as my wife and I bought our dream family home. John’s thorough and diligent approach allowed us to make informed decisions on potential properties. He takes the time to ensure you understand the condition report and can proceed to buy with confidence. I would seek to use John’s services next time I am looking at purchasing a new property.
John responded promptly to our inquiry to complete a home inspection without much notice. He was thorough and exhaustive when completing the inspection and, with the use of his impressive equipment, found problems that had not even occurred to us. His report was detailed and has helped us learn about the importance of having an inspection done prior to auction or putting in an offer. Without John's help, we would have purchased a home that would have needed repairs that simply would have put us out of pocket and caused us many financial problems into the future.
As first home buyers, my partner and I had Adelaide Home Inspection inspect our home prior to the Auction. Initially, my partner insisted him and his mates could do it, and there was no need to spend unnecessary money. Well, I got my way (hehehe) and decided that having a certified inspector was the way to go. John carried out a thorough inspection and provided a report that provided us with peace of mind to purchase at Auction.
Prior to purchasing our beachside dream home, we spoke with three different home inspection companies to better understand their range of services and cost structures. My wife and I decided to use John from Adelaide Home Inspection for a combined building/pest inspection due to the detail he provided at a competitive price. We are so glad we engaged his services after learning a lot about the property we otherwise would not have known such as: • detection of water damage in one of the bathroom walls • timber bracing issues in various spots in the roof space •plaster on numerous walls that have been temporarily patched due to salt damp •tell-tale signs of termite activity. Although we decided not to purchase the property based on these findings we are relieved we did not spend our hard earned money on a property that may have cost us more in the future.
