Buildings must all be built to the National Construction Code (NCC). The NCC provides a minimum level that buildings, building elements, and plumbing and drainage systems must meet.

One of our experience building inspectors can carry out a building inspection to identify key defects that may prevent your building from meeting code and causing your building to fail. The mistakes that may have been made are now YOUR problem – and you’ve got to do something about it.

Common Building Inspection Defects

A building defect repair report can help to solve problematic issues that are causing your building to leak, sink, rot and unnecessarily deteriorate causing greater maintenance costs.

This may involve leaking windows, cracked bricks, drummy tiles or something more serious – and potentially dangerous.

Strata building construction defects and house building construction defects can be both dangerous and costly. You need a team on your side who know what they are doing, can identify code compliance issues, and resolve them in a timely and expert manner.

The Building Defect Repairs Process

Our inspection will start with a visual inspection, and we will advise if any specialist investigative work is required moisture testing are just two of an extensive list of areas that will form part of the inspection process.

Crib Group can prepare a building report that addresses the building defective work that has been carried out, explain how it is affecting your building long and short term, and advise you how to rectify it. We will provide a scope of works on how to rectify the defects.

We can also provide a quote to rectify the defects. You can then undertake the next part of the process by rectifying the issues that the report has identified as needing attention.

If you are concerned that your building is not to code, we can help you with the reliable advice you need so that your building is everything it should be. After all, you deserve to be safe in the knowledge that your structure (and investment) are sound.

That’s why you need the safest and most reliable industry professionals.


Christmas day 2023 there were some horrendous storms in the Runaway Bay area where I own an investment property. My tenants called me to advise that the garage roller door had been torn off and landed on their car. I had no idea how to deal with this over the Christmas period.

Talking to some family, we all started to search online, social media etc for someone to assist.

We came across Crib Home Improvements. Sceptical, anyone would answer the phone on Boxing Day, to my surprise, Gavin did.

Explaining my predicament with tenants who had a dog and a small baby, Gavin advised he would attend to the property and secure it in the interim until such time the damage could be assessed further.

Gavin attended the property with temporary fencing, shade cloth for privacy and was able to safely remove to a safe place the damaged roller door.

Thanks heaps, Gavin, for coming to the rescue!

We highly recommend Gavin Hunt of Crib Building Consultants, for any building or renovation projects.

With the renovation and additions of our property, we found his workmanship and attention to detail exceptional, while his knowledge and ability to all details of the build was impressive.

In adverse weather conditions, he was able to complete our project within the agreed time frame.

It is our pleasure to highly recommend Crib Home Improvements. They have been instrumental in our bathroom renovation/s. They have been responsive to our needs, quality oriented and very professional in every aspect of their business.

The design and construction process went smoothly and construction was completed on time and with a high level of quality. As the client, we always looked forward to the site visits, and we were never faced with any major design or construction issues, as can sometimes be the case lining in a high rise.

The quality of work has stood the test of time.

Gavin and his team from Crib Home Improvements were recommended to me. I wanted to build in the underneath of my home into a separate living area. I needed the laundry area and garage area redesigned into a bedroom, living/sun room, bathroom, kitchen and laundry.

It was very overwhelming for me being a pensioner and not knowing where to start and if I needed all different trades and most of all, who to trust.

Gavin attended my home, gave me some terrific ideas and went away to put together a very detailed quote.

I am now happy to say that after a few months of a construction site under my home, I now have an incredible bedroom with a wardrobe behind a freestanding wall, an amazing modern bathroom, including a new lover window with so much room, including a walk in shower with only one piece of frameless glass, a beautiful off floor vanity and a toilet behind a half wall for privacy. Not to mention the fantastic kitchenette with an under bench washing machine and fridge.

The additional lounge/sun room with a new glass sliding door has provided me with many hours of reading pleasure.

Thank you, Gavin, and all your professional team of trades for creating what I thought was an overwhelming job seem so effortless. You truly are what I would call an “old-fashioned” builder, with tremendous “old-fashioned” values and honesty.

We were very impressed with Gavin & CRIB. He spent many hours going through the works in fine detail, explaining the process & options. All the guys that carried out the works were respectful & courteous. We could not have been happier with the final result.
