Frame inspections are undertaken when the wall and roof frames have been completed for a new home build.
At IBC Property Inspections, we undertake thorough and independent house frame inspection. It is the only way to make sure there are no defects.
Some of the more common issues we find are walls overhanging the concrete slab, roof trusses not properly supported onto walls, walls installed out of plumb, Walls/ roof not braced as per drawings etc.
All house frames must meet the standards set by the Australian Standard AS 1684.2-2010 – Residential Timber-Framed Construction Non-cyclonic areas. The standard is in four parts. It covers design criteria, building practices, tie-downs, bracing and span tables for timber frames.
