Director Steve Hull
I am a trade qualified builder having over 30 years of experience in the industry including both residential and commercial projects. I possess an extensive knowledge relative to the regulatory frameworks and quality aspects of the building industry having worked previously for local territorial authorities and the Registered Masters Builders Association as a quality expert.  I am an Accredited Building Surveyor (LVL3).

Together with a practical approach and a guarantee of good trade practice, I provide a high level of expertise. I am approachable, well qualified and customer focused with quality and accountability being integral to all the services my business offers.

Extensive Building Experience and Knowledge
Being a qualified builder ensures that I have a practical understanding of the issues that the building industry faces today. I keep abreast of changes that continue to occur in the trade through websites, trade publications and BRANZ appraisals thereby providing up to date advice. While I was with Papakura District Council as Manager of Building Control and Environmental Services, I was responsible for the delivery of all regulatory functions under the Building Act. This included processing and issuing of Building Consents, Code Compliance Certificates and undertaking inspections and enforcing the Building Act provisions with respect to un-consented and dangerous building works.

As part of my inspection and reporting procedures, checklists are used together with photos and general notes, resulting in quality reports containing detailed comments and conclusions. With the qualifications I hold and my experience in all aspects of the building industry, I am able to offer quality technical and procedural advice.

I Will Be Using Him Again
Inspect Services did a pre-purchase check on a house in Whitianga for me. Steve provided a professional and thorough report covering a series of moisture readings, infa-red imaging, exterior cladding and construction, roofing and interior. He provided photos detailing critical junction points that required constant monitoring to providing a list of items to be considered or repaired. The report was detailed and easy to understand. If I was not sure of anything, a simple phone call to Steve and he would easily explain, to giving advice on how best to remedy problems With this report I can feel confident in my decision about buying or pulling out of the purchase of this property. Houses aren’t cheap and if your not in the building trade you need sound advice before any purchase is considered. I thoroughly recommend anyone requiring a building report for peace of mind or bank loaning purposes to get in touch with Steve at Inspect Services, I know if needed I will be using him again.
