About Straight Up Inspections - Tauranga's independent house and building inspection company

Located in Tauranga, Straight Up Inspections was  founded by Alistair, a trade qualified carpenter with over 25 years experience in the industry.  

Alistair has worked in both the commercial and residential building industry, gaining a wealth of knowledge about construction.  Over 15 years ago he became a successful self employed builder owning his own company that specialised in building residential properties. Alistair has completed courses specific to weather-tightness, building inspections and thermography.

Claire was a teacher for 15 years so has a high attention to detail which transfers to their pre-purchase inspection and builders reports. She has completed a Methamphetamine Testing course and produces highly detailed and easy to understand Meth Reports.

Straight Up Inspections offer a same day pre-purchase house and building inspection and report service – your thorough written building report will be emailed to you before the end of the day. You can be assured of a non-biased quality job at Straight Up Inspections.

Being a100% independent company means that we have no ties to real estate groups, building companies or any other company that may have an interest in what appears in our final builders report.  We will not try to sell or recommend any other services related to any work that may be required on the house.
