"Was purchasing my first home, and thought I would organise a pre-purchase building inspection. Was recommended John at Absolute Building Inspections and gave him a call. John clearly explained over the phone exactly what his services were and what it covered, I opted for a full exterior and interior inspection with the addition of their water moisture test. I only gave him a couple days notice, and he arrived on time and with all the equipment needed. He was very professional, tidy and helpful with any questions I had regarding any areas I wanted to examine further. I am so glad I opted for the extra moisture test as John made sure to check everywhere and even places where I would have never thought to check. He examined the entire house from top to bottom and even climbed inside of the roof and took some photos for me. At first I examined the house entirely my self but am so relieved I went for a professional opinion as there were a few things that John had picked up that I never even knew to look at. And the best thing was that the seller agreed to rectify all problems pointed out by John at their cost and not mine. What more could you ask for."


John is reliable, trustworthy, friendly and professional. We have valued learning about what to look for in the inspection process.

Thank you so much John for your extremely comprehensive and professional service. We really appreciated your down-to-earth and fully informative approach. Your qualifications, affiliations and full indemnity insurance ticked all the essential boxes for a pre-purchase home inspector, and gave us piece of mind at a time of such uncertainty and in a field where many others lack such reliability. I whole-heartedly recommend you to others and would happily employ your expertise again. Thank you for helping me to have peace of mind when buying my house!

John has looked at several houses for me and been able to point out things I would have never realised. The reports are in-depth and the verbal information / pointers / tips etc all help with decision making. It really is critical you have John checkout any home before you buy it as hidden nasties can cost you deeply if not found before purchasing.
