An outdoor deck is a charming addition to any home, but annual maintenance and inspections are required to ensure the safety of the structure. Moisture, heat, parasites, poor construction and overloading are all circumstances that can turn a seemingly harmless space into a hazardous, life-threatening danger zone.
Whether your home was built two years ago or thirty two years ago, you may have noticed cracks in the walls, especially here in Western Australia where nearly everything is built on sand!
Depending on who you talk to, there are up to 13 stages for building a home. These stages represent a lot of work, and unfortunately, a lot of opportunities where things can go wrong.
Western Australia’s storm season is coming up from May to October, and with high winds, rainy days and severe storms that may bring hail, the weather has the potential to damage your home or commercial property. This risk is especially high for properties that may already have issues on the roof covering, gutters and drainage systems.
Subsidence can affect property value, it can affect your insurance rates, and it can involve a lot of risk when it comes to purchasing a home.
Summer is coming; the warm weather is here, and that means it is the perfect time of the year to work on the house. Are you ready to start a new home renovation project? Whether you have done one before or not, there are several things that are important to keep in mind during the planning stages of your project.

If you’re making an offer on a home and have yet to hire and professional to carry out your pre-purchase building inspection, what happens if the inspection report shows a huge defect that you can’t afford to fix? Is the contract still binding?
Whether you’re a first time homebuyer, or it’s been a while since you’ve been in the market, it’s important to know your price range, and to understand how to negotiate with sellers so that you can secure the home you want within your budget.
Nature certainly has its beautiful side, but during winter in Western Australia it can have a dark side too. Sometimes, the effort to prepare for the yearly wet storms and flash flooding that effect the region can be futile. No homeowner expects it to happen to them, but if it does happen to you here are the steps you need to follow to make sure the damage (and the cost!) is minimal.
