Understanding Fix Stage Inspections for New Construction 

As you embark on the journey of constructing your dream property in Victoria, each stage of the process demands meticulous attention to detail and adherence to specific standards. 

The Fix stage represents a crucial phase where the interior of the building begins to take shape with the installation of fixtures, fittings, and finishes. 

In this blog, we’ll explore the significance of Fix stage inspections conducted by Red Dog Property Inspections in Victoria, focusing on the meticulous attention to detail required when all internal cladding, architraves, skirting, doors, built-in shelves, baths, basins, troughs, sinks, cabinets, and cupboards are fitted and fixed in position.

At Red Dog Property Inspections, we understand the importance of thorough inspections during the Fix stage to ensure that the interior construction work meets the highest standards of quality, compliance, and safety. Our team of qualified inspectors specializes in assessing all aspects of interior fit-out, including the installation of cladding, architraves, skirting, doors, and various fixtures and fittings.

Focus Areas of Fix Stage Inspections:

  1. Internal Cladding: We meticulously examine the installation of internal cladding materials to ensure they are properly fitted, aligned, and securely attached to the walls. We check for any gaps, unevenness, or defects that may compromise the integrity or aesthetics of the cladding.
  2. Architraves and Skirting: The installation of architraves and skirting boards is assessed for proper alignment, mitre joints, and finishing details. We ensure that these architectural elements complement the overall design aesthetic while providing a seamless transition between walls, floors, and doors.
  3. Doors: Inspecting doors involves verifying correct installation, smooth operation of hinges and handles, and proper alignment within door frames. We check for gaps, drafts, or any issues that may affect the functionality, security, or aesthetics of the doors.
  4. Built-in Shelves, Cabinets, and Cupboards: Our team thoroughly examine the installation of built-in storage units to ensure they are structurally sound, properly aligned, and securely fixed in position. We check for smooth operation of drawers and doors, as well as the quality of finishes and hardware.
  5. Baths, Basins, Troughs, and Sinks: Fixtures such as baths, basins, troughs, and sinks are inspected for correct installation, secure fixing, and proper sealing. We assess plumbing connections, drainage, and any potential leaks or defects that may compromise the functionality or integrity of these fixtures.
