Roof Frame Inspection

Ensure your roof frame is structured correctly and all areas of non-compliance issues are identified and rectified before progressing your new home build to the next phase of construction.

What’s involved in a Roof Frame Inspection

Our roof frame inspection is the visual inspection of installed timbers or steel in order to support the roof cover and internal ceiling covers. The department of commerce reported a compliance rate of just 33% for roof frames for metal roof covers in 2016. AS1684.2-2010 and the BCA are used for inspection reference. A Roof Frame Inspection is a necessary requirement on a new home build and is conducted after the plate height is reached. When we inspect your roof we ensure the roof frame is completely straight, with no distortion or sagging, and is adequately braced with the correct framing anchor or nailing plates.

Our Roof Frame Inspection will verify the condition of the following, but not limited to:
  • Ceiling joints
  • Beams
  • Struts
  • Rafters
  • Under purlins
  • Ridge boards

Why it’s important

Most new home builds in Western Australian have Conventional Roof frames, meaning the frame is constructed on site using timber. If the roof frame isn’t constructed properly and inline with Australian Standards you may experience a number of issues later on down the track. Your roof protects everything that is inside your home, hence it is important to make sure it is built to last.
