Friendly, timely and helpful. I had an urgent matter that required same day report. Although it was David's day off he helped me out without hesitation. Will definitely use his service again.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should a customer hire you over another service provider?
We provide a better service because:
We take more care, we are very thorough, we report clearly in plain language and we answer our clients' questions and concerns
What experience, skills, qualifications or training do you have to make you the right person for the job?
Currently a registered Architect in SA (no 2575), I have 20+ years previous on-the-tools building experience around Adelaide, which has provided me with a solid practical understanding to underpin my professional qualification.
Is there a particular aspect of your trade or industry that you specialise in?
Pre-purchase building inspection reports. We also offer a termite inspection report service done right after the building inspection. We also do Architects Advice Reports for owners and renovators.
How did you decide to get into your line of work?
Over the years I have accumulated a lot of knowledge about house design and construction specific to the Adelaide region. This work allows me to use and share that to help people.
Do you have a favourite customer story you would like to share?
I have many. In fact, every time a customer calls me to express their appreciation and sometimes surprise at what a terrific report they received, I am thrilled and reassured that we are on the right track. We have virtually no complaints.
What do you like most about your job?
Seeing a new building each time and investigating its problems and features. Best of all, I meet some really great people - interesting clients, land agents and home occupants (both owners and tenants).
What questions should a customer ask to hire the right service professional?
What are your qualifications for this job?
How long have you been doing inspection reports?
Have you ever had any claims made against you in this line of work?
Can I pay after I receive the report?
What questions do customers commonly ask and how would you answer them?
Do the sellers have to fix these defects you have reported?
- Often not, but it's definitely worth asking them to. Regardless, you can use the report to negotiate a better price that covers the cost and hassle of getting them fixed yourself.
What makes you the most reliable and trustworthy person for the job?
Our loyalty is to our client and nobody else. We are not looking for building work or commissions from others. If we recommend another service provider, we receive no benefit for doing so. We do not seek work from sellers' agents because normally they are not on our side of the sales transaction.
Are you an insured business and do you guarantee your work?
Yes - all architects practising in SA are required to carry professional indemnity insurance.
Pre-purchase building inspectors are NOT required to be licensed or insured in SA and most other states.
What are the typical things that you need to know before you can provide a quote to a customer?
Location, size and type of property. With most now on the web, this means just looking up the ad and floorplan then giving a fixed-price quotation by phone or email.
How can a customer save money before you start the work? Please give 3 tips
Look carefully at the house first - there may be some major defects you or your companions can spot then tell us about when enquiring about a professional inspection report.
Are there any special offers you would like to offer to Oneflare customers?
Oneflare customers get the same very best service that we offer to all our customers. We don't add on any fees to cover the charges that Oneflare levies from us.
What makes your pricing competitive?
We all want to save money, but choosing the cheapest risks ignoring the variations between inspection services and their reports' quality. We usually aren't the cheapest but our clients are always satisfied.
How do you normally charge for your service?
No money up-front! A fixed price is quoted to the client based on their particular property. We do the inspection, provide the summary and then email the report. An invoice is sent with the report for payment by EFT or other methods as convenient.
