The majority of building inspections take 90 minutes to 2 hours on average. The amount varies according to the size of the home. It also depends on the structure of the building, its age, condition, and the number of faults discovered by the building inspector.
A house constructed on stumps vs one built on a concrete slab, for example, is inspected differently. The inspector can investigate under the home where it is accessible if the house is on stumps, but this will take longer. A house built on a concrete slab, on the other hand, has no subfloor and hence takes less time to inspect. Our inspectors, in any case, take their time to complete a thorough and precise job.
