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.

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.
