FAQs - Building Surveyors​

Building surveyors play a crucial role in ensuring that your residential construction projects comply with all state and local regulations. They are essential for the building certification process, which is necessary for new homes, renovations, extensions, and the addition of structures like decks, carports, and swimming pools. 

A building survey should be conducted early in the planning stage of your construction project. This ensures that any potential compliance issues are addressed before construction begins, saving time and money. It’s also necessary when buying a new property to understand any existing issues.

Upon arrival, our building surveyor will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the proposed construction area or existing structures, if applicable.
