The Melbourne building inspectors you can trust

Solid Start Property Inspections for reliable, accurate inspections and reports

Solid Start owner Ian is fully insured and registered with the VBA as a building inspector.

These accreditations are important as the building inspection industry is not regulated. Some building inspection companies offer building consultancy without the necessary experience or knowledge to deliver you a diligent and professional inspection. This can lead to major problems further down the line, which can be potentially expensive to rectify.

Solid Start Property Inspections is fully-qualified and insured and adheres to strict industry standards. We provide reports that our clients can rely on for accuracy, based on comprehensive inspections that look deeply into the property or building in question.
