Buying a home is an exciting experience, but not all houses are built equal. Discovering major issues after you’ve purchased can end up costing you a bomb or affecting your health.

It’s crucial that you look for problems before it comes to this.

Hi, i’m Gian Ciarrocchi

I’ve been building and managing projects for home owners for 15 years.

Coming from a family of builders it was no shock that I chose to follow the same path.

I took my first step into the industry at 16 years old, and realised how much I loved using my hands.

After becoming a licenced carpenter I immediately started my own company.

Always looking to progress, I was hired to manage a team of builders within one of Australia’s largest Insurance Building Rectification Companies. It was here I truly learned what can go wrong when homes or renovation works are not built to Australian Standards.

With a desire to build dream homes for potential homeowners I completed my Cert 4 in Building and Construction, and finally obtained my Builder’s Licence.

From there I started my own Building company, working on new homes, extensions, alterations and renovations. Time after time, I was approached and asked to carry out Building Inspections for my clients. An unknown industry to me at the time, I soon became aware many inspectors were lacking any relevant building experience or qualifications.
