Customer Testimonials

Ilian Selensky, Northcote Ilian Selensky, Northcote:

"We appointed Jack to inspect a townhouse we bought off the plan in Ivanhoe. Prior to that I spend days trying to do defect list myself and save some money. When I realized how many defects there are in my opinion I figured out that I might need some professional to show me what actually is considered defect and what not. What I was truly surprised by, after reading Jack’s report, was that after all that time spend I have only managed to see small surface defects and I have completely missed serious hazardous for the building defects. His report was professionally presented, very well structured and every one of the 73 pictures identifying a defect was addressed to relevant building rule. We end up pulling out of this contract when we realized how badly built this place was and how many potentially expensive faults there were.

We highly recommend Jack if you need experienced building professional for your building inspection"

"We were impressed with Jack's advice and thoroughness; he advised on and picked up a number of important matters which kept our builder focused and gave us peace of mind. To use Jack is not a negative gesture to the builder; we cannot possibly determine defects and omissions ourselves. The old saying is that a person who represents him/herself has a fool for a client; when building a house one should  be represented in inspections and obtain an independent view which can be used to work with one's builder -  it is money well spent; instruct an inspector like Jack - Peter & Anett, Alphington. 20 Sep 2015."
