Opes Recommended Building Inspectors

Building inspectors have the necessary tools and experience to see things that most cannot, which means nothing gets missed. They also create a detailed report containing images, descriptions and the specific location of defects which provides us and the developer with a comprehensive record of defects to be remediated. Opes recommend the below inspectors as we appreciate their fastidious attention to detail, expert knowledge, and use of specialist equipment to inspect both cosmetic and structural components of your build.


With a RedLBP building inspector, you can be confident you are getting a property report from an insured, and trusted construction professional with years of experience on how homes are constructed.
