20 Kopiko Road,
I started my professional career in the building industry in 1987 as an apprentice bricklayer in the UK. Constructing new homes, retaining walls, foundations, chimneys, fireplaces and many other related projects during my apprenticeship provided an invaluable insight during the times of the 80’s ‘stock market crash’. I was requested to complete or rebuild many works left as incomplete when the work dried up for many other tradesmen. You could not pay for that kind of experience…
I travelled in the late 90’s within the UK and Europe working and experiencing many differing practices. I diversified into the window industry fitting double glazed aluminium and PVC, landscaping nurturing my love of horticulture this also involved retaining walls, drainage, pathways, driveways and everything in between.
I left Europe in 1999 and travelled using my trade skill knowledge in Australia and New Zealand, eventually settling in Auckland.
After an unfortunate back injury I trained as a residential property inspector in 2004 and I have to date, inspected and documented issues on over 6100 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!
We are proud members of NZIBI New Zealand Institute of Building Inspectors and make myself available throughout Auckland. I love the variety property inspections provide and make myself available to undertake most home types through residential and light commercial.
If you want the inspection completed first time every time contact me now.

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.
