Gympie Inspections Services can assist you with any building, pest and pool safety inspection you may require.
Brett has over 35 years experience in the construction industry.  As an award winning builder he knows what to look for, and is familiar with all types of buildings and structures.  Over the past 10 years, Brett has also worked as an inspector so is familiar with both areas within the industry.

Living in a rural area it is important to check things that may not be relevant in the city. For example, many clients who have moved from the city to the country do not think about the water usage. They are used to turning on a tap and clean water comes out, but even properties in town often have water tanks, and for rural properties this is your only source of water. Brett checks the quailty of the tank and the fixtures with all building inspections, something people buying a property forget to do.

Brett offers a one stop shop for all your inspection needs.
