Incompetent staff turning up. Don’t waste your money

It was my first build and I hired Darbecca to inspect all stages. I cannot believe the inspectors coming over were so incompetent that they could not pick up the defects. I had to show them where the issues were and they don’t guide you how to rectify the problem. They just shaft you and take your money. You rather pay your supervisor a gift to look into your project rather throwing money away to these building inspectors.

Get Darbecca in before you start building

I would highly recommend Darbecca, thorough ,professional and expert technical report. They are very good value for money , don’t go for the cheapest inspection you may only get a superficial report. If you plan on contracting a builder you don’t know get Darbecca involved before you sign contracts ,specially a HIA based contract which has 50 pages of terms and conditions that benefit the builder. It is much better to have Darbecca to set the standard of build at each stage than fix problems at the end of the build .Spend the money it will get you a better build , less stress and protection from a low quality build . Show reply

So thankful for Darbecca

The Darbecca team were exceptional from start to finish. Competent, reliable, flexible and thoroughly well versed in their trade. Through a challenging build, we felt so much reassurance having Darbecca in our corner. Inspections and reports were thorough and diligent and nothing was too much trouble for Darbecca.

Highly recommend to any building a house in Victoria. Show reply

Exceptional service

We engaged Darbecca to conduct a defects report for a residential property at lock up stage in Melbourne. Dale Jamieson was allocated the job and he has done an exceptional job highlighting all defects in the construction. He has provided very sound and professional advice will empower us to ensure that the builder complies with all regulations and delivers a quality build. Dale has shown high standards of professionalism and conduct in every aspect of the job. We would highly recommend Darbecca in our network. Show reply

10/10 Professional Service

If I were to ever to build again I would definitely use Darbecca.
David inspected most stages of my build and every stage was looked at thoroughly and he explained everything to us to ensure we knew what we were looking at once our builder rectified any issues. We also had Greg and Brett attend and they were both just as attentive.
All the admin staff have been a pleasure to deal with and made the booking process so easy even with late changes being needed due to the builder changing timelines.
Would highly recommend Darbecca to anyone looking for an independent inspector. Show reply

Highly recommend to anyone building a home

We have had Dale Jamieson attend a fixing and waterproofing inspection and the advice and recommendations in both reports have been invaluable. We highly recommend this service to anyone building a home. Relying on building surveyors to conduct their own inspections is not enough in ensuring quality workmanship and full compliance with BCA. The cost of inspections as a proportion of the entire build cost is insignificant and worth every cent. Show reply

Hi, I am wondering if you routinely check whether or not a prospective inspector has a history of being a disqualified builder, either due to breaches to the relevant building act, or through insolvency due to a domestic building insurance claim being made against them by a former homeowner.

Hi Darbecca team, I am building with Porter davis and they have below requirement for an independent private inspector. Pleas confirm if you are one of the three below points so that I can hire you.

"What is the difference between registered & non registered independent inspection
services?

inspection services, so we recommend you research the background and qualifications of those
companies.

to the written reports of qualified inspection services. By qualified we mean someone who holds one
of the following qualifications.
