    "We have had Phil carry out two property inspections on our behalf. We got the standard report which was based on a visual inspection. The report was comprehensive, supplied visual proof, details on what repairs may be needed as well as when, and which areas might be of more concern. On both occasions he had the report completed within 24 hours and sent immediately after payment. Not only was Phil friendly, reliable, and easy to deal with, but he was extremely professional and gave some great advice. I would recommend this business to anyone who would like a fast, reliable, and comprehensive property report done."

    "I'm very impressed with Phil's work. This was my first commissioning of a builder's inspection. It was much more thorough than I had thought it would be, it seems like there is nothing that would escape him. He is obviously highly skilled. He was also very easy to deal with, he replied to several questions on a weekend."

    "Phil Tuttle, Cornerstone Property Inspection Services, provided a very comprehensive inspection report on a property I have brought. I have not had much to do with buying and selling property and Phil's Premium Report of about thirty pages was in my in box, the morning after his inspection making it easy for me to read and understand.
    I had a relative who has dealt in property all her life present during the inspection and I emailed her a copy of the report. My relative was very impressed with the detail of the report. We would recommend the Premium Report $950 to anyone wishing to buy a property.

On top of all this, his report was very detailed, easy to read and well laid out with relevant/clear pictures to support his comments.
    I highly recommending Phil to anyone looking for a building inspection. There is no doubt that he will be our first call for any of our future needs.

    "Phil responded to my early morning email request for a building inspection within an hour of the email being sent. He was easy to talk to on the phone and able to schedule an inspection for the following morning. We met him at the property where he was already underway with his inspection. He was very thorough and on-point, he clearly had a wealth of experience. He was calm and methodical but very efficient. The inspection report was emailed to us the same day, it was very detailed and well set out. As first home buyers, we were able to understand his findings and appreciate his recommendations. We are very satisfied with his service and highly recommend him."

Booking for the pre-purchase house inspection was arranged quickly, and the inspection took place within a couple of days from first contact. The report was emailed on the same day following the inspection. Phil was very thorough and the report was very easy to understand and full of knowledgeable advise and comments. We would certainly go to Phil again and highly recommend him to others needing a pre-purchase inspection done."

    "Phil from Cornerstone Property Inspection Services Ltd provided an excellent property inspection service for me in early Augus 2016.

    His communication was excellent. As well as being friendly and personable, he was happy to clearly and comprehensively answer questions before, during, and after his service was completed.

    The turn-around to perform and deliver inspection and report could not be faulted, and I greatly appreciate the effort made to help us out at short notice.

    He took care to pay attention to areas I noted of particular concern, but also went beyond expectation in his thorough summary of the state of the property in it's entirety. We were able to confidently negotiate a very good price with the Vendor, and I give credit to a number of items highlighted by Cornerstone Property Inspection Services. Based on my experience, I will happily recommend Cornerstone Property Inspection Services."

    "From start to finish Phil was a star. His communication in lead up to the inspection was clear, personable and direct. The setup was smooth from the word go. On site he was personable, yet professional and completed his work in a timely manner. He didn't hesitate to speak frankly, and openly about the condition of the property and demonstrated an incredibly in-depth knowledge. He was even open to a phonecall after the fact to provide further advice and feedback once all the information had time to sink in. If/when we looked to buy our next property, we won't hesitate to call. Thanks Phil!"

    "Very competent and thorough.
    My wife and I have used Cornerstone for building reports on 6 properties in Auckland spread over 2013-2016. We ended up buying 2 properties: 1 house and 1 bach. We have ended up very happy with both. Also, of the 6 properties we had inspected we walked away from 2 of them on the basis of major issues that were uncovered by Cornerstone's inspections. On at least 2 occasions the seller's agent has remarked to us that "your building inspector is very thorough, isn't he?". This is the advice you want on your side :). Highly recommended.

You can always go back to Phil and clarify anything or get estimates for the remdial work involved, to us as newbees to New Zealand this has been invaluable. He also managed to inspect the properties and turn around the report within a few days of requesting. Many Thanks"

    "I used Cornerstone Property Inspection Services for a pre-auction property inspection in July this year - we opted for the Standard Inspection. Phil conducted an extremely professional and thorough inspection at fairly short notice. The output report was comprehensive (with plenty of pictures) and was conveniently broken into sections outlining not only the essential and immediate maintenance concerns, but also indicated recommended areas for the future. We effectively got an 8-10yr maintenance plan for the property. In addition to the written report, Phil also gave me considerable time by phone to talk through all of the areas highlighted, as well as some really top advice and solutions to the issues identified. I couldn't recommend Cornerstone (and Phil) more highly."

    "Phil came highly recommended from our local community group for his excellent service, reports and knowledge in all aspects of buildings - and they were not wrong!
    We contacted CPIS prior to wanting to list our house for a private sale. Phil did a thorough inspection for us and identified a few areas of concern and highlighted the remedial works that needed to be undertaken. As difficult as it is to hear that your own home ‘needs work’, Phil was incredibly professional about it all and at the same time sympathetic. Having been in this type of work for as many years as he has, he was able to provide solid contacts for the works needed as well as advice for the on-going maintenance areas.

    "Just say this is our second time to ask Phil to do the inspection of our house and he has preformed a absolute detail and professional service. He can pick up not only any existing issue but also the potential risks of our house and give us very good advice on how to fix the problem.
    A very detailed but simple to read inspection report(with photos) has been presented to us so that we can easily find out what we need to do for the next step.
    There is no doubt that we will continuing to use their service in the future. I will recommend Cornerstone's service to anyone who wants to have a prompt professional house inspection service.

    "We were referred by an real estate agent as he was a local during the process of our property sale in May. After having him over to our place we were extremely satisfied and impressed about the depth of his knowledge compared to any other inspectors we have used before and we could felt straight away this guy is absolutely not a cowboy. We will definitely call him again."

    "I required an urgent pre-purchase property inspection to be carried out. Phil contacted me over the weekend to confirm the time and he turned up to the site today. He prepared the comprehensive report on the same day - we are very happy with the level of detail in the report. We have used other inspectors before and you get what you pay for. Will definitely use Phil again."

    "Was given a recommended list of people to use to for builders inspection by my lawyer.
    Cornerstone Property was at the top.
    Judgement to use them was not wrong.

    I applied to have a premium report to get the details required before purchasing a property.
    Phil Tuttle had scheduled to come in on Monday 12th and the detailed report was sent to me the next morning and the document was professional work.
    Had pictures detailing any issues with property, description of work done and a glossary. Excellent work! Highly recommended!"

    "We engaged CPIS to inspect a property we were considering purchasing in March 2014.

    From the outset, we were impressed with Phil's professionalism, responsiveness and attention to detail. He took the time to listen, get an understanding of the background of the property in question, and schedule the inspection at a time that worked for everyone.

    When it came to the inspection itself, Phil quickly identified serious concerns around moisture ingress, and some of the construction methods employed, which he believed wouldn't meet code compliance for a habitable area. On his advice, we consulted the LIM which seemed to confirm a lack of the appropriate permits. We immediately withdrew from the sale, and feel very relieved to have essentially 'dodged a bullet' in not purchasing a property which was certainly not up to our required standards. Interestingly, the property in question had been sold a few month's earlier, at which time it actually passed inspection by another property inspection service! Phil's detailed verbal and written explanations made it easy for us to understand the issues, and clearly demonstrated his considerable knowledge and expertise. Given we withdrew from the purchase because of his findings, Phil even had the courtesy to reduce our fees from the 'Premium' to the 'Standard' report. We're extremely happy with the service we received from CPIS, have no hesitation in recommending them to others, and will certainly engage them again."

    "We've been trying to buy a house for the last few months. I found the Cornerstone Property Inspection website initially on Yellow.co.nz and checked out No Cowboys to see what kind of feedback they received before contacting Phil.

    We ended up using Phil's services to check out 4 properties over the course of a few months. Sometimes we had tight timeframes and Phil was always accommodating.

    I really appreciated seeing the photos in the report to support the comments and highlight exactly where any extra work was required - there was no confusion. We've finally bought a house. The seller (a builder himself) commented on how impressed he was with Phil's thorough inspection and the amount of time Phil spent looking over everything. We had a really good experience, and as such would highly recommend Phil and Cornerstone Property"

    "I have actually waiting to put this up to assess what he may of missed. Initially I thought he was fantastic except for the fact that he didn't bring a big enough ladder to get onto the roof and have a look. (which is actually quite important).
    However I have now lived here for a couple of months and have found problem after problem, some of which he could never have found others which he should have.
    I would not recommend this company
    "
    Phil Tuttle responded:
    "Although we appreciate input onto the website, we also have to ensure that criticism is in fact accurate. If you have experienced concerns with the property you believe I have overlooked , you need to call me and allow me to assist. We have a relatively small time window to collect information and it is never an easy task to be perfect every time, but we try. I have reviewed the Standard inspection quickly and acknowledge the roofing height and access point was unsafe to achieve appropriate access. However, we carry a ladder size long enough (3.6 meters) to allow us to safely access a roofing system up to 3 meters. This keeps us within the OHC requirements and insurability which in the case of a fall may be reduced or even dismissed. The climb height details are in the table within our terms and conditions. The property generally had some significant items of required remedial work, and these have been included within the Standard report. I am taking the time to write this letter as I am concern that the feedback you have provided will be detrimental to my business and our good name as experienced professionals. The No Cowboys site is a fair way to get an opinion of which tradesman is which and we embrace the concept and have been asking everyone we inspect houses for to write into it. We have never had any reviews like this one, nor any complaints or bad feedback from anyone in nearly 7 yrs of trading as Cornerstone. I would be interested to hear from you in relation to your concerns and would also be interested to know whether if the discussion covers your concerns, if will consider removing the bad feedback. I am always concerned about my clients commissioned work and take this role very seriously. Note: We have not heard back from Donna."

    Phil’s standard inspection report clearly identified the problems and gave solutions. The layout and photographs in the report made its contents easy to read. I appreciated the added advice he gave while on site.

We used Phil twice, on both occasions we received a verbal report and on one a written report. Phil was straight up and informative with his verbal reports and his written report was clear, informative and seemed more focused on telling us what we needed to know rather than covering his butt (as some building reports I have seen tend towards). The agent we were with commented that he was extremely thorough. We were very pleased with the service all round, great to work with."

    We went for the Premium Report as the quality and detail in this report is a great reference, not just for when you are looking to purchase a property, but also for after you have secured the property as a guide on what smaller maintenance items will need attention. Highly recommend Phil, great to deal with and a superb service.

    His recommendations were really useful as well.

    I would highly recommend Phil if you are in need of a building inspector."

    "Phil was good enough to squeeze us in for an on site and verbal inspection on the day of the auction. He spent over 2.5 hours on site the last half hour was sitting down with us outlining the remedial work required. He answered all of our questions in plain English that we could understand.
    Phil was also good enough to make suggestions as to who to use for various services required and indicative costs in those areas.
    Following winning the auction, we commissioned Phil to complete a Premium report, which is extremely thorough and will be invaluable to us working through the remedial work required on this property. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Phil as he is a thorough professional and his service and advice second to none we believe. Thanks Phil, we\'ll be using you again should the need arise.

    "As a first home buyer I asked collegues for a recommendation when I needed a building inspection on our first home, she sent through an example of one of his comprehensive reports with clearly documented advice on required maintenance. I emailed through and had a response within an hour, an inspection in a \'window\' Phil had that afternoon and then the report overnight! This was exceptional service adn I\'d highly recommend Phil who on top of all this was a really nice guy. I have every confidence in his recommendations and we are pleased to feel secure in this purchase."

    He wasn\'t the cheapest but was better value than the previous inspector as we got the right information as first home owners with no knowledge of building.

    "We have been looking for a house for a while and this was our second property inspection but our first with Cornerstone.

    Phil gave a superior service by far! When Phil turned up for the inspection, the agent hadn\'t got the keys for the 2 flats as promised, so Phil inspected the half he could and returned a few days later without extra charge to inspect the remaining. He also gave great insight with a list of things requiring attention and how soon, talked us through them on sight and answered all our questions over the phone in detail. We bought the property and a couple of months later Phil was still happy to answer questions we had from the insurance company about wiring, roofing etc to help us get insurance. The first inspectors we used before trying Cornerstone were slightly cheaper but the report was far less informative, gave less feedback when requested, and was generally unhelpful, so cheaper is definitely not better! This report was far better value for money despite being a little bit more expensive. I couldn\'t recommend Cornerstone enough, thanks a million Phil."

    "I have used Cornerstone several times now to inspect a prospective property for purchase and have found them to be excellent. The Estate Agents involved have commented to me how thourough they were in their inspection, and even grumbled their attention to detail was too much. As the Client of Cornerstone, these comments from an Agent trying to sell a property to me are excellent - this tells me that I will know and be aware of everything I possibly can and make a completely informed decision when purchasing the property. The Agents of course don\'t want every weakness of the property revealed as they worry it will deter from the sale. Cornerstone have saved me purchasing a property with major issues that were not initially apparent. Cornerstone are excellent and well worth the Inspection Fee."

    "From the first phone call with Phil I was impressed by his professionalism, he described in detail what his inspections included and his methods and we booked a time for a house inspection.

    When I met Phil about an hour or so into his inspection he walked me through his findings and we discussed some points in detail and he provided some good no nonsense advice.

    The inspection report came the next day and again I was impressed with the level of detail and the quality and note that its the best building inspection report I\'ve seen, very impressive considering it was such a fast turn around time and the quality and quantity of the content. The day of the inspection did get rescheduled at a little short notice but Phil communicated this with me as I had expressed a desire to be present and we were able to meet up at the property at a mutually convenient time. I found Phil to be very friendly and would have no hesitation in recommending Phil/Cornerstone and will not hesitate engaging him the next time I need a property inspection carried out. Thank you Phil for exceptional service."

However, the easy to read, knowledgeable report, and supplementary advice given, has, and will now be a great resource to us. I would definitely recommend Cornerstone, and wish Phil and his business every success."

    "Phil was recommended to us through friends he had already done an inspection for. He did a thorough job for us and spoke me through his findings as he went along inside the property we had put an offer in for.
    I wouldn\'t hesitate in recommending CPIS to anyone else looking for a building report for properties they are interested in purchasing. You can\'t leave things like this to chance and the detail into which CPIS go and the ease with which they present their findings is a great reason to choose them.

    "We used Phil for a building inspection on our conditionally purchased property after Cornerstone were recommended by our mortgage broker as being very thorough. Phil did not disappoint!

    The report was easy to read with room by room break downs, handy photos and explanations of terms. The initial report highlighted some issues that required a return visit for invasive testing. Again, Phil was professional and clearly showed his expertise. The end result was that we are able to complete second level negotiations from an informed position and move forward into ownership of our home with peace of mind. Phil has a passion and enthusiasm for his work that matches his building knowledge and is apparent in the quality product delivered."

    "Cornerstone Property Inspection Services gave us the information needed to pull out of a purchase that we were going for. The moisture detection reports based on each room in the house was easily worth the fee. I even looked at the same place that moisture was found and it looked ok to me - until CPIS suggested I look again - Great work.

    They were very punctual, neat tidy, and used actual experience to back up their findings. The report produced at the end was 31 pages long and included photos and a room by room break down (also exterior, foundations, ceiling, garage etc). We'll definitely use CPIS for our future home inspections and recommend them to our friends!!"

    "Cornerstone were highly recommended to us from a friend who had used Phil for a number of inspections and they didn't disappoint. We had two reports done. The first, Cornerstone highlighted issues that contributed to a confident decision to pull out of the property, saving us a lot of money in the long run. The second gave us the confidence to purchase our first home. Phil was prompt, explained things clearly and his written reports are exceptionally thorough. Going through the stressful experience of first home buying it was a relief to know the building inspections were in good hands. Thanks to all at CPIS."

    "Phil provided a very comprehensive inspection report, which certainly helps with our decision making. Phil spent at least 90 minutes doing a thorough inspection of the house. The report has removed much of the uncertainty of purchasing an older house and we feel well prepared for what will be required should we purchase. The report was clear and easy to understand for non trades people. We were happy to pay a little bit more to get a reliable, trustworthy report."

    In turn i would highly reccomend Phil. Simply put he saved us a lot of money & stress.

    His report was clear & consise, and allowed us to re-negotiate with the vendor & settle with peace of mind.

    He obviously enjoys and takes pride in his work, and was always friendly & patient with us despite the number of times we contacted him with questions."

We were so happy that you were recommended to us because you put our needs first. As nervous first home buyers we relies solely on the advice of others, and yours has always been honest and professional.

    "I have used Phil in a professional capacity for quite some years now referring clients to him that are buying their first, second or third home or buying an investment property. Being in the property industry and having someone as reliable and professional as Phil to refer clients to is invaluable and everyone I have referred Phil to has been very impressed by his quick and efficient handling of the building inspection process.

    I have recently had the opportunity to use Phil for a personal matter and being the client who has to make the decisions of what to buy, where to buy etc instead of the professional helping the client make those decisions is a different kettle of fish altogether. Usually I advise the clients to obtain as much information as they can about the property relying on the professionals (building inspector, valuer, council staff etc) in order to make an informed decision about the property. This time it was me actually making that decision and I needed to rely on the advice and experience of a well qualified and suitable building inspector so I called Phil. Not only did Phil provide the report we were after but was always available to answer questions I had following the report even though I must have asked the same question twice or three times as when you are in the buying and selling process yourself it can get quite overwhelming and sometimes you need information presented to you more than once! Thanks Phil for providing me with an excellent service and for always providing my clients with the best service you can - no-one can ask for more than this."

About us
I have been working as a professional in the building industry since 1987 and have gained a wealth of knowledge from travelling with my trade skills. I served my apprenticeship time as a Bricklayer in the UK building new homes and working on extensive renovation projects involving properties of historical interest. Sole trading as a builder, completing specialist brickwork to order and further designed and built many other unique projects. I sub contract installed replacement window / doors and erected conservatories in aluminium and PVC whilst gaining experience as a glazier specializing with sealed unit double glazing.
I traveled using my trade skill knowledge within the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, eventually settling in Auckland.
After injury I trained as a residential property inspector and I have to date, inspected and documented issues on over 4400 properties for prospective home buyers and vendors alike all across the greater Auckland area. That converts to more than three billion dollars of real estate!
Remember…You are not comparing ‘apples with apples’.
If you want the inspection completed first correctly every time contact me now.

What we do
We perform stringent and thorough pre-purchase / pre-sale property / building inspections and provide quality documentation within 24 hours or same day depending on requirement and report type preference.
The service will be prompt and friendly with a serious professional edge at all times.
We also provide:
Meth / 'P' testing / screening.
Asbestos sample testing.
Invasive / non-invasive moisture testing.
Maintenance reports.
Specific other inspection services are available upon request.

Our documents are accepted as legible and compliant reports with banks and insurers.
Pre-purchase / sale documents are written to suit NZ4306:2005 Residential Property Inspection.
We will happily answer questions on the report findings and provide good quality information and advise where possible.
Thermal imaging is a relatively new tool assisting us in the discovery of moisture and is helpful with insulation evaluation and electrical fault diagnosis. We use this tool in conjunction with all other methods for assessment for moisture ingress or leak event, but it has limitations.
