What’s involved in a Plate High Inspection

A Plate High Inspection is conducted by a building inspector once the brickwork is complete. Our plate high inspection is the visual inspect of brickwork and takes measurements of rooms against any plans provided. At this time we also  observe the slab for cracking and level tolerances. AS4773.2-2015, AS3700-2018 and the BCA is used for inspection reference.

Our Plate High Inspection will verify the condition of the following:
  • Flashings and weep holes
  • Mortar joints & masonry appearance
  • Lintels
  • Roof straps
  • Wall ties
  • Structural columns
  • Internal dimensions
  • Cracking in masonry
  • Wall Cavity
  • Level & plumb
  • Sub-floor construction (if applicable)
  • Wall cladding (if applicable)

Why it’s important

A Plate High Inspection provides homeowners peace of mind knowing that their new home is not only proceeding according to the plans, but also inline with the Building Code of Australia and Australian Standards. It is an inspection that should be completed once the brick work is complete and no later. This allows the building inspector to see all areas that may be of concern and gives the builder time to correct these issues before commencing the next phase of construction.
