Mark frequently has to quote the BCA to the builder in his reports to remind them of the minimum standards.

Assuming access is available we always inspects the roof space, roof exterior and sub floor on existing houses. On new homes during a Practical Completion inspection, We are yet to find a timber roof frame which fully complies with the BCA. Mark carries out inspections and drafts the report for the Independent Building Inspection.
