A few words from clients past and present

Mr & Mrs Norris

PRF House & Building Inspections - Thorough Efficient and Pleasant. Is how we found Mr Paul Fox in his services. When we required a safe and sanitary report. He was very helpful before, during and After inspection and report was completed.
Thank you so much.

Ephraim & Rebekah

When we purchased our new home recently we had a very short time frame to get a building report done. The house was built in the 1890's so it was also important to get it checked thoroughly. Paul didn't disappoint on either count. He was there at short notice and the report we received was comprehensive and clear. It has provided us with confidence in the integrity of our new house along with a prioritised checklist of items that need attention now or in the future. Paul is very professional, a great communicator and an all round great guy. We highly recommend his services!

Paul Fox is a professional who can be relied upon to give confidence with the big decisions in life. Paul conducted the pre purchase building inspection on our heritage property and did so thoroughly, in a timely fashion. He also provided expertise to help resolve an issue with some seriously substandard work completed on our property after purchase.
Paul is an expert you can trust.
