Frame Stage Inspection Sydney


Get a New Home (Construction) Stage Inspection Report  for a property you are building from Australian Property & Building Inspections. We service the Sydney and greater NSW regions. 

Selling Houses Australia


You can download from Australian Property & Building Inspections our frame stage sample report to review what we inspect and how we complete the inspection. Our frame stage building inspectors service the Sydney, Northern Beaches, Western Suburbs and regional NSW.

Each frame stage inspection will assess:

  • Subsidence;
  • Visual check that all framing is straight;
  • Wall frame member spacings are adequate with blocking & nogging installed for wall and ceiling linings;
  • The connection of frame members;
  • Location of under-slab services - visual check that service penetrations through the floor are in appropriate rooms;
  • Building services to wall and ceiling frames installed using new materials and in good condition;
  • Roof truss/frame is installed, tied down & braced;
  • If installed, the standard of fascia and gutter installation;
  • Structural steel members such as columns, beams and lintels checked for support and fixings;
  • Window and door openings;
  • Visual check for the installation of a perimeter termite barrier;
  • Wall frames secured to top/bottom plate;

The frame stage is the second inspection of four inspections we recommend to clients in the process of building a new home:

  1. Pre Slab Stage Inspection 
  2. Frame Stage Inspection Sydney
  3. Lockup Inspection 
  4. Completion Inspection (Handover / PCI)

Our qualified inspectors work for you and our report will enable you to communicate factually with a builder if any works are substandard to ensure you get the house you want built for what you paid for.

Each Frame Stage Inspection in Sydney is carried out in accordance with AS4349. 1-2007.

We liaise with builders, site supervisors or agents for access to the building site. The prices we quote on are fixed and there are no hidden travel fees.

We will email you the frame stage inspection report within 24 hours of inspection.

      "Complete and detailed report on the property. I recommend APBI for anyone residing local or interstate & who is looking for detailed findings."

    -  sripathi karthikeyan

  • 22 June 2020

      "After getting frustrated with another inspection group, I called apbi and hoping I can get some help/support. It was the wisest decision I have ever made. They worked in an efficient way - did not take long to get connected and book the appointment. The staff talked in a very professional way and very patient. They looked after this job well by contacting the agent to confirm date and time. On the day, the inspector / Mr Glyn Jones came on time, which showed his professional working attitude. He answered all my questions in a patient way with all details. He did a full check on the property, not missing a corner. The report he created is comprehensive and easy to read. Overall I highly recommend apbi for their high quality service and professional attitude."

      "We had Glyn come out and do a building and pest inspection report and he did an excellent and thorough job. He identified major to even the most minor defects and provided a comprehensive report and was available to answer some additional questions that I had. As a result we were able to get the issues resolved by the seller before we moved into our new home. A really great experience and I would not hesitate to use APBI again in future. Thanks Glyn."

      "Very professional company. They can met my very short notice period and done the report just in two days.This was really convenient and helpful. Good building and pest inspection report by Glyn as well."

    -  Scott Ren

      "I sourced this building inspector after a friend built the same home and had a number of serious issues with the build. When initially speaking with them, they provided good pricing and were easy to communicate with. I arranged for a four site inspection for a new build. The building inspector was thorough and brought to my attention a number of issues that could have cause problems if not located. I recommended Apbi to a friend as well and she had nothing but, praise for them. I would highly recommend them!"

    -  Salma Van der Byl

  • 25 March 2020

      "Went around the site with the inspector, so I could chat to him as he pointed out various things. I strongly recommend doing this - you learn so much more than reading the report. Report is very comprehensive with lots of clear photos and explanations. Saved me buying a potentially disastrous money pit, so fantastic value for me!"

    -  Jeff Gray

      "I chose APBI because of the high ratings, the demo reports on their website and their competitive price. I?m so glad we did! Auction happened on Saturday so it was short notice but they organised a time with the real estate within a day and the report was done within 24 hours. I was able to call Glyn who answered all of my questions (if he didn?t know he would say to get advice from a specialised person which is fair enough). The report was consistent with the demo report- easy to read and I appreciate the ticks (minor; major) which broke it down. Happy with the customer service when organising. Overall will definitely use again!"

He had picked up things which I would not have noticed. But most of all, he did his job without any interruption. It was a great experience. Overall, I was extremely happy with APBIs service. They did what they came here to do, and did on time. Thanks guys. Theo"

They have contacted my builder and arranged the inspection. On the inspection day APBI inspector arrived on time and did a thorough inspection of my house and shared the report the very next day. Report was very detail with pictures and easy understand language. I am very happy with APBI and definitely recommend."

    -  shannen goldthorpe

  • 23 August 2019

      "Hello, I ordered a building inspection for a newly completed apartment this week. Totally unsatisfied, very little of what i asked to be covered off was done. When listing defects the inspector said a 'certified tradesman' would be required to confirm defects - i would have thought he had some expertise in the matters?. Furthermore, I was told that access was denied to certain parts of the building, this was not the case. Finally They said the air conditioning didn't work - it just needed to be switched on? The report i received 363$ later left me no more or less confident in the purchase. I contacted the company, they told me to call the inspector, he was hopeless. I called them back and they won't be addressing the issue until next week, which is too late, i could lose more money or the apartment altogether so i have contacted another company today. I couldn't be more disappointed with the service provided - in the face of the building crisis facing developments in Sydney and Melbourne, buyers need to rely on services like these to move ahead. Instead i have been used as an ATM, despite giving the business plenty of time to rectify the situation and send someone else out or instantly refund my money."

Would highly recommend and will definitely be using again when needed"

      "APBI did our new build inspections for every stage of the construction. We were very satisfied with the service and believed that we got more than our money's worth! Daniel proved to be an outright expert in his field and found significant defects earlier during the build which included squeaky floors and water leak. We got 50+ pages of defects report as well for our completion inspection - and had we done the inspection ourselves, we're sure we would have missed all those issues as first home owners. Extremely professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with (when we needed to reschedule the inspection on the same day), we would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends. Thank you Daniel and team at APBI!"
