    "John recently undertook a pre-purchase building inspection and conducted meth sampling. I was grateful that John insisted I be present for the inspection as he pointed out things I needed to be aware of, and gave advice on treatment, maintenance etc as we walked around the property together. It was obvious to me that John is highly experienced and I appreciated his friendly and frank approach. I was very impressed with the quality of the report but for me, it was the time spent on site with John that really was the most valuable. I have no hesitation in recommending his services to others."

    "I wouldn't consider using anybody else for building inspections. The quality of work, diligence and knowledge shown by john when working for me was outstanding. On one job john found multiple problems in a property that the vendors inspector had completely missed, and their inspector had to go back and re-inspect and confirmed what john had found. John also provided me with enough knowledge to know when to not waste his time and my money on getting an inspection done. All of his feed back is clear and concise and leaves you a position to make an informed decision."

    "The response was all we required. Prompt, on time, complete, highlighted important areas, made constructive suggestions and gave us confidence to make an informed offer for the purchase of the property inspected. Left open opportunity to discuss details of the report and findings if required. Would recommend this operator to any prospective house purchaser."

    "I called detect a leak to help me find a cause to the carpet damage I found. John helped me out and found moisture in the wall. John was very helpful, and informed me of all the possibilities that could've happened and found the problem. He was very effecient. I now know the cause and a lot more about leaks and guttering!
    I will definitely be calling John again if I ever have any problems like this again and would recommend him to anyone.

    "John uses the imaging camera in combination with a very sensitive moisture meter. However, I believe what diferentiates John from others is the wealth of knowledge he brings to his investigations which enables him to interpret the information these measuring methods provide. John is extremely thorough and methodical. I was extremely impressed with his efforts and the report that resulted from it."

    "Our business is Pet Boarding.Five years back we rebuilt from floor up.In he floor we placed the pipe work for water fed heating and later drilled 250 starters for the block work . Unfortunetly 5 of the 14 zones never worked . John and i came up with a system of pushing a smaller pipe in to the floor pipe and pumping hot water in .Once floor temperature came up we were able to track the first fault. The floor is broken into and pipes exposed ,then the procedure is again done this time pushing the smaller pipe at the clear end of floor pipe and water forsced in .The end result we now have one zone fixed after finding 3 faults 3 starters .The others were one break one blocked with boiler sludge and two no feed due to lack of pressure.For us this has been a curse not knowing how to fix as i spent countless hours searching ways to track infloor faults.And of course not having all the heating .Thanks John at Detecta Leak for your knowledge and professionalism"

    "Veryt helpful, the inspection took 30 minutes longer that anticipated but this was more than offset by the toroughness of the survey."
