Excellent Services !!
I had availed New Home Inspections services throughout my build until hand over, I would like to accolade their services as they did an excellent job by reporting all the defects.
The Most Valuable service according to me was one post call that you get with the Private Inspector, who answers all the queries, helping us to further understand the defects and to differentiate between what's major and the minor ones.
I would definitely recommend Private inspections to be done via New Home inspections for their thorough knowledge when it comes to building inspections.
First class service. Amazing attention to detail. Worth every dollar.
The team at NHI are experts in construction. They have amazing attention to detail, deep kmowldtof building regs and their turnaround time on reports is fantastic. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

New Home Inspections - a must when building a new home.
When first considering building a new home (knock down rebuild) I was not sure whether to spend "more money" to have an independent building inspector. Having the house now completed, I am very glad that I did use an independent building inspector. I was confident that my building company would do a good job, and not intentionally cut corners. However, after much thought, I decided to enlist the services of New Home Inspections for peace of mind, and to keep the building company on their toes. New Home Inspections conducted an inspection at e...ach of the stages of construction, and they compiled a comprehensive report on any defects, or items that needed any additional work. The service from the start of the process to the final inspection was fast and efficient, with excellent communication from the office staff through to the inspector. At the final "handover" inspection, I was told by the inspector that "you have a good, well built house here". Hearing that sort of comment makes you feel good, and that you made the right decision in appointing an independent inspector. I highly recommend New Home Inspections.
How worst it could be when an inspector is having chat in a close door room with the building supervisor while clients are present at the property. On raising the issue with company over the phone, been told we cant stop anyone to have communication and if there is any concern we should have ask our supervisor as he approached the inspector. The point is we do not have control on supervisor as he is working for builder he can reach to anyone he wants but we paid for inspectors service even if he is approach by someone he could have ask him to t...alk in front of clients not staying in room for 5mins and pretending like nothing happen. I sent an email enquiring about update as this was frustrating because reception had ensured over the phone to get back to me after having words with inspector. Finally i got the inspection report at night on third day after speaking to a different person over the phone and explaining her the whole incident and experience and she was humble enough to listen and conveyed it to the management. I even got call back from her confirming inspector will call me to explain his point of view and feedback has been conveyed. On that day i did got the report at night but never got a call from that inspector. This was my only inspection since my house is building and because of such experience the report has no credibility to me.
Worth every cent
We haven't built before so wanted expert advice for our inspection stages. From the time we engaged New Home Inspections they were fantastic.
Inspections often need to be rescheduled with the builder but NHI were happy to accommodate changes. Onsite both of the inspectors we had were happy to answer all of our questions and provide advice.
The reports arrive a few days after the inspection and are very detailed with references to relevant regulations.
Building can be a long and stressful process but NHI have given us peace of mind and the confidence that we have built a quality home.

Inspections for whole new home project
We're not savvy people when it comes to building so we used NHI for our pre-pour, frame, pre-plaster, fixing, waterproofing and final inspections on our Porter Davis Home. We could not be happier with NHI. We attended every inspection and the inspector took the time to show and explain issues to us every step fo the way. Our site manager was eager to get every report and then to work through it with us so the working relationship between Porter Davis and NHI was good too. While the total inspections cost less than 0.5% of our build - the peace of mind they have given us is priceless.
Very helpful with a full detailed report!
Building a house with little to no building experience and not sure what to look for, we are so happy we ended up getting the inspection. I highly recommend this company as they have great knowledge and very professional
This is the second time we have used NHI for inspection.
We engaged New Home Inspections for our hand over inspection stage. They did such a thorough job that our builder had to agree to a second hand over inspection, as the house was far from being ready for an inspection. Our only regret is that we didn't use New Home Inspections to inspect all 4 stages (slab, frame, lock-up and final inspection). We highly recommend spending the money to have each stage inspected for full peace of mind.

Highly recommended private building inspectors!
We used New Home Inspections throughout our build and could not recommend them highly enough! The two inspectors we dealt with were fantastic. Their reports were thorough and gave us lots of details to return to our site supervisors. The admin staff were also friendly and helpful. We would definitely use them again in the future if we decided to build again!
Fantastic Service Highly Recommend
I used NHI for 5 inspections and it was a very wise investment as I had many difficulties with my build. I am so grateful for their support and excellent service. Especially Susan in the office is extremely helpful and friendly. She gave me advice when I felt frustrated and tried her best to help me when I knew nothing about building. I would highly recommend NHI to anyone building home.
Best decision for building a new home!
We engaged New Home Inspections for our hand over inspection stage. They did such a thorough job that our builder had to agree to a second hand over inspection, as the house was far from being ready for an inspection. The builder also had to cover the fees charged for the first inspection. Our only regret is that we didn't use New Home Inspections to inspect all 4 stages (slab, frame, lock-up and final inspection). We highly recommend spending the money to have each stage inspected for full peace of mind.
Top notch service.
New home inspection did a fantastic job. The inspector (Rohan) was very thorough and was able to find a whole list of defects, which would’ve cost me a lot down the track.
I highly recommend New Home Inspection to my family and friends. Thanks a bunch.
New Home Inspections did a good job,m and the inspector came to visit the property were knowledgeable and efficient in finding faults, which builder could not knockback. An extensively detailed report, in my case, assisted to eliminate a lot of hurdles. Thank You New Home.
Thoroughly professional service, highly recommended!!
I am so pleased that I went with the New Home Inspection. Joe (the inspector) was so detailed in inspecting the house & gave us a very extensive report. I would highly recommend his company, especially Joe to my family & friends & any buyers. You will not regret it. Thank you for an awesome job.
Highly recommend this service
We used NHI from the initial contract inspection right through to the final inspection and Kevin and the team were great to deal with. The reports were well detailed and on time and they helped give me peace of mind that the builder was doing everything they were meant to.
Don’t build without using New Home Inspections!
We used NHI from the initial contract review through each stage until handover and were grateful for their professional reports and comments. We highly recommend their service.
During each inspection, they take their time to go over everything from top to bottom to ensure that the work was done correctly. At each stage they produce a detailed report including photos of any defects they find. They were able to pick up on many things that would have otherwise gone unnoticed or ignored by the other legally required inspector. In addition they comm...

Peace of mind
I used their service for three stages during my home construction. As it was my first home, I wanted peace of mind and assurance that the builders have done their job properly. New Home Inspections found many defects in each stages that needed rectification by the builders. They provide good customer service and are very prompt in replying to our emails/phone calls.
Great service and easy to read report
We engaged NHI for only our pre-handover inspection as we couldn't use them initially due to a last minute issue with our builder. We were very impressed with the customer service that NHI provided as well as the thorough and detailed reports. The inspector was very professional and knowledgeable. The inspector even welcomed us to contact him if there were any issues with builder requiring clarification for defects identified in the report. It was definitely a worthwhile expense to give us a piece of mind. Highly recommend NHI.

Questions & Answers
I am thinking to engage your services for my build, what do you have to say about a review left above by Chilli ? That totally defeats the point of independent inspection when your employed inspector dont care about their work ?
We found them wonderful. Like the whole building process, the relationship you can build with everyone else in the process is the biggest thing. It's your dream home and yes it will require a lot of time and effort to make it happen. Absolutely zero concerns with NHI. They find the issues and its up to us to discuss and find resolutions with our builder so everyone is happy.
