Our Services

Access Building Inspections has been providing a specialist range of residential and commercial property inspections to satisfied clients in Hobart, Huon Valley and the Channel areas for many years. We help you make informed decisions when buying a new home or investment property. Our detailed consultancy services will ensure you know all there is to know about your home so you can make the best decision possible.

Comprehensive Building Reports


Our comprehensive reports will help you make the best decision you can. Included within our reports are photographs that will identify any significant building defects and problems. If these defects or unsound constructions issues stay hidden, they could result in you paying thousands for repairs in the future. Contact the professionals at Access Building Inspections BEFORE you sign!


All our inspection services are carried out by our company owner, an Accredited Building Practitioner with more than 30 years’ experience in the industry. Our property reports comply with the Australian Standards AS 4349.1-2007 Inspection of Buildings Part 1: Pre-Purchase Inspections – Residential Buildings. We also have full Professional Indemnity Insurance. 


Our building inspectors will perform a comprehensive assessment of your property to identify any major defects. We report on the general condition of the property, as well as providing answers to your questions and concerns.  Common questions include:

  • Are the foundations solid and how serious are the cracks?
  • Is the roof sagging and is it likely to leak?
  • Is there damp in the walls?
  • Does the plumbing work and is the wiring safe?
  • Are there borers or timber decay?
  • Is there asbestos on the property?
  • How much will the repairs cost to fix?

Understanding the condition of your property will provide you with all the information you need to make the best decision you can before signing any papers. It may also help you negotiate on the price as well. Make your investment with confidence!


Don’t automatically assume that everything will be up to standard when you are about to buy a new home or investment property. Unfortunately,  this is often not the case. Our expert team will make sure your new home is constructed to the standards of the BCA (Building Code of Australia). We will also identify any problems with your property before you sign any papers. This will allow you to make sure any defects are replaced or repaired while they are still under warranty so the value of your new home is not diminished.

New Home Inspections
Thermal Imaging


For fast, reliable and accurate building diagnosis, infrared cameras are the latest and best technology. They quickly and easily identify an extensive range of problems within your property. Infrared cameras do not see through walls, cabinets or concrete. Instead, they show the differences in the surface temperature of a material. These temperature differences will indicate moisture or other anomalies such as missing insulation. This will help you identify hidden problems with your property before you sign off on your investment. Just some of the issues thermal imaging can detect include moisture or leaks, missing or defective insulation, structural shortcomings, as well as any plumbing or electrical issues.
