Building Inspector Melbourne | Building Problems

building inspector MelbourneBSS offers a range of services for people with building problems, such as dampness, building cracking and drainage issues.

Expert independent advice at an early stage will minimise longer term ownership costs and if this is done within the first 10 years of construction a claim may exist against the original builder. Advice on building problems is given by one of our Building Consultants or our Civil Engineer.

If you’re searching for “independent building inspector Melbourne“, you’ve come to the right place.

BSS provides:

  • Free telephone advice on the steps that should be taken to resolve your problems.
  • Low cost initial consultation service from our Essendon office.
  • Site inspections and reporting.

Reports contain independent authoritative advice on:

  • What has gone wrong and what needs to be done, and.
  • Whether a claim may exist against others.

Reports can be undertaken:

  • Cracking/Movement
  • Dampness
  • Leaking
  • Drainage
  • Maintenance issues
  • For Owners Corporations
  • Involving Engineering Investigations, and
  • Covering other Building problems.





Our reports discuss the problem and make recommendations as to what needs to be done now and what the likely cost of this will be. Sometimes it is necessary for us to refer our clients to further investigations by others – e.g. Soil testing, Arborist advice, drainage design, etc.

Where matters are straightforward we can often refer our clients direct to contractors or builders who can quote and undertake the recommended works.


Telephone advice is free.

We also offer a range of other services such as dilapidation reports, building disputes advice, and new home inspection reports and advice.
