Don’t know what his doing
We had an inspection with jims before purchasing our home. The room was 2100mm minimum hight is queensland is 2400mm they still pass the inspection. They couldn’t even bother looking at rotten floorboards that was unstable . That was on the balcony or leaking rotten foor that the tile lift up and was not waterproof. Would not recommend him at all. Did not see the actual damage to the roof. Once it rain it soak the hole front as there was cracked and he didn’t look at it. Thanks but you just made us purchase a rotten damage not liveable home that was pass the inspection not to mention i ask if he could Recognise if there is any asbestos and he said he don’t know.
Reliable, with great attention to detail.
I use Michael Silverstein on a regular basis as I am a buyers advocate. I find him reasonably priced, Attends the property very quickly, has a great attention to details and a very broad knowledge of building practices. I have used many inspectors over the years and most focus on the aesthetics in order to justify the expense to the consumer. Michael focuses on the faults most potential buyers don't see and don't understand, then does a great job of explaining them. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael and feel he is an essential part of my team.
I recently had cause to engage Daniel Duffy and Wayne Lawson for a Building and Pest Inspection on a property is rural Sth Australia. Being in Tasmania this was a big leap of faith and I must say speaking with both Daniel and Wayne they were excellent. After attending the site both contacted me to let me know they were finished and true to their work the reports were with me within 24 hours. The detail exhibited in both reports for me as a builder were excellent and very descriptive and showed me both know what they were doing. I gladly paid the costs and in the long-term, their reports certainly saved me from a rather expensive repair bill had I proceeded. Again I cannot say enough guys, well done.

Very fast service, replied to my phone message quickly & gave a quote that evening. Price was reasonable. I would recommend their services. Mehdi from Bentleigh East was very polite & helpful
Very detailed and accurate inspector
Richard Weeks conducted a perfect unit inspection for me. Overall a very good experience.
Richard dealt with the Real State Agent to arrange the inspection time. After the inspection we discussed about the main issues in the unit, how to fix them and a rough estimate regarding the cost.
Also within a day I received the comprehensive inspection report indicating some issues that I missed during my inspection.
Very proactive, fast service, friendly people. Fair price.

Excellent and comprehensive building and pest inspector
David Piva from Jim's Building Inspections (Canada Bay) conducted an incredibly comprehensive building and pest inspection report. The report highlighted issues that were missed in the vendor's original inspection reports & also provides recommendations on how to proceed with addressing various identified issues. I also had an asbestos inspection performed & the asbestos report similar to the building and pest report is detailed and comprehensive.
Pricey but you get what you pay for
Brad from Jim's Building Inspections (Melton) inspected a townhouse I wanted to purchase.
Overall a really good experience. After asking for a quote online Brad took the time to research the actual address online and gave me some good advice and I booked the inspection on short notice.
Brad dealt with the Real Estate agent and I didn't have to do anything else. Received a call after with the outcome and had the full report in my inbox that evening. The report was detailed and picked up plenty, including lots of minor issues I missed over 3 i...
Jack was a professional and friendly person. Response to our query was fast and efficient. This is the second time they are doing the inspection for us. Great service, highly recommended.
Ramy was very proffessional, detailed with the report and a nice person as well. We are satisfied with the report and recommend him. He was easy to talk to and very helpful in making us understand the building/quality standards. Thanks Jims cleaning.
Richard provided an excellent service and provided feedback in a timely manner. I asked for a quote and he called me back within an hour. Once I had booked in and the initial inspection was completed he explained most major issues and mentioned most minor issues that may need rectifying as as soon as possible. Overall, I was very happy with the experience and would recommend the service.

Jack provided a wonderfully helpful service and advice while completing a building inspection recently. I would highly recommend his services. Jack was very professional and meticulous in his approach to the inspection.
Professional and detailed!
Richard is so meticulous and patient during the whole inspection process. He also took time post inspection to answer our questions. On top of that He also offered a ton of great advice like how to read the strata report etc. We are lucky to have found such a good inspector like him. Definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking to purchase real estate.

Hi Suzanne, I think it has picked me up in SA however I am looking at a village in Queensland. Thanks for your assistance.
Jim's Building Inspections
Hi James. Queensland is a licenced state and all our inspectors in Queensland are registered with the QBCC as per the requirements.
Do you look into asbestos residue in houses
Jim's Building Inspections
I'm not sure what you mean by "residue"? Jim's Building Inspections conduct Visual Asbestos checks, Asbestos reporting with sampling (when the property is owned by the client) and workplace registers and management plans.
