At Bestwest Building, we understand that buying a property is one of the most significant investments you’ll ever make. That’s why we are dedicated to helping you make informed decisions with our comprehensive Pre-Purchase Building Inspections. Recently, we conducted an inspection of a 30-year-old property, and the findings were eye-opening.
📝 Here are some of the major structural defects we identified during the inspection:
1️⃣ Split Valley Rafter: The valley rafter, a critical component of the roof structure, had been subjected to deflection, leading to a worrisome split. This defect compromises the overall integrity of the roof and requires immediate attention to prevent further damage.
2️⃣ Rafter Deflection and Twisting: We observed signs of deflection and twisting in another rafter during the inspection. This issue will only worsen over time, putting the structural capacity of the property at risk. Addressing this problem promptly is crucial to avoid potential safety hazards.
3️⃣ Roof Failure Above Carport: The roof above the carport has experienced significant failure and movement. This has led to a drop in the ridge line, spreading of the rafters, and bowing of the beams. Even the ceiling joists have detached from the beam, and the piers have shifted, as evident from the base crack. Due to restricted access, we couldn’t determine the full extent of the damage in the roof space above the carport. The location of solar panels might be a contributing factor to the issue.
