About All Building Inspections

When you need to engage a Building Inspector to perform a building and pest inspection in Cairns, work with locals. We are not a franchise, and our team comprises only Cairns locals, most of whom have been living and working here for many years (and loving it!). Our local experience means we understand the specific weather conditions and other tropical issues that properties in the area face — knowledge that helps us deliver superior inspection services.

My wife Cheryl and I used All Building Inspections before purchasing our Queenslander. Our Inspecter Josh was extremely professional, honest and very thorough. He showed and explained to us all the imperfections and problems we had with the property and made us aware of any further possible issues. We did end up purchasing the property becuase we knew there were no suproses. Amanda was lovely to deal with and was also very polite, friendly and very professional. I would recommend All Building Inspections to anybody wanting professional advice.
