External cracking! External wall cracking can appear for numerous reasons. Possible causes may be foundation movement, thermal movement and moisture uptake or loss or failure under external loads. Historically from our experiences nine times out of ten storm water is to blame. As an example the caption below shows wall cracking. In this instance the




Thermal imaging is a brilliant tool that shows us heat differentiation. As you can see in the image below, there is a red area and a blue area. The red area in thermal imaging shows us heat, whereas the blue area shows us the cooler parts of the image. In the below image the “cooler




After inspection of the hot water service we found a little leak. Fortunately this was found and the system was replaced.




Displayed in the attached picture is a leaking shower. In this instance the silicone has been removed or deteriorated from the floor and wall junction causing water ingress into the wall cavity. Ideally a waterproof membrane should stop the water from reaching the wall frame work. Not always the case. Top 3 issues with a




Commercial roof space – In the picture below is a box gutter. The idea in a box gutter is to catch all the rain fall from the sloped roof space and guide it directly to the allocated downpipe. As you can see in the picture below the storm water is just sitting within the gutter.




Termites – In the image below is a nib wall in a 14 year old house that has been a feeding frenzy for termites. The damage caused is un-repairable and unfortunately has to be replaced. After further investigation the termites had nested within the walls of the home.




In the thermal image below you can see a large dark circle that has formed in the middle of the picture. This a “Active leak”. In this instance water had penetrated the roof tiles around a flashing. To the naked eye the leak was evident but it did not show the extend of the damage.

QBI are amazing. Very detailed, very in-depth reports that made the most of the inspection. Spent time answering all questions I had and were better value than other local inspectors - was even able to recommend a great pest inspector too

Have used David for a couple of properties now, wouldn't use anyone else. Incredibly thorough reports and great one on one conversations, explaining everything. Wouldn't buy a house without consulting him! He's helped me dodge a bullet before, that would of cost me a couple of hundred thousand.
— Liam Mcaulay
Dave was great, very informative, easy to talk too and ensured I seen the issues I needed sorted before putting house on the market. Was worth every dollar as the money spent on my issues I feel will ensure a smooth sale.
Thanks Dave.

I had David do a preventative maintenance inspection on our butcher shop at the Gawler Green. It was a very valuable inspection as we found a leak coming from the tenancy next door. David's thermal imaging and moisture testing was used to find the problem . It was easily fixed before it became a big and expensive repair . His service was professional and great , I'll be using his maintenance inspections regularly.
