Your home is one of your biggest investments.  Yet most people spend more time deciding which car to buy, than on which house to buy.

As such, you want to make sure you get it right - having an independent and unbiased building inspection undertaken by a qualified building surveyor ensures you'll have a home which is both structurally sound and a healthy environment for you and your family.  Once the inspection is completed, you'll receive a comprehensive written building report. The building report will outline attributes of the property, any significant defects which need addressing, and any general maintenance items which may need doing.

We cover the Tauranga, Mt Maunganui, Papamoa and the greater Bay of Plenty region, including Waihi, with no added travel charges. 

Inspections are undertaken weekdays, with Saturday and Sunday inspections available to work around your needs.


"As newcomers to Tauranga from Wellington, my wife and I saw a house we wanted to buy with a degree of urgency. We were most impressed with the wonderful and prompt professional service of Confidence Building Inspections. They were professional, thorough, efficient and very detailed in their report including relevant photos. We would recommend Confidence Building Inspections to any prospective buyer!"

Dr René de Monchy, Tauranga 

“We chose Confidence Building Inspections because we wanted the surety of the inspection being completed to code, and for the inspector to be qualified, insured and indemnified. Not all Bay inspectors met those criteria. Our report was promptly completed and was of a high standard, with quality photos. Keith identified the remedial actions needed to address the issues. Their report assisted us in making a decision not to purchase a desired property and saved us considerable money and grief. My discussions on the phone with Karen were insightful and beneficial. Highly recommended, professional company. “

 Donna and Tony Farrell, Mt Maunganui

“Your service was fantastic - prompt; excellent communication; and the report was very thorough and easy to understand. Actually heard about you as you had undertaken a building report for my buyer when I sold my house. Would definitely recommend and use again. Thanks again.” 

Sharna M, Bethlehem

These guys responded to our inquires with haste and made themselves available to us at short notice. We had our building inspection report within 48hrs and were able to purchase our home with confidence. Would highly recommend their services!”
