Building Inspections Semaphore

Looking for a local qualified building inspector in Semaphore offering a western coastal discount?

Hi, my name is Travis Summerton, the Managing Director and sole Building Inspector of Summerton Building & Inspection. Though I am a born and bred West Lakes Shoreian, I also consider myself a defacto local of Semaphore because my Dad was born and raised there and I spent a significant amount of time at my grandparents’ house on Military Road when I was a kid. Nana and Papa would take me on walks around the local area every time I visited them, telling me stories about the history of Semaphore and the Port. When our own kids were smaller we took them to Semaphore regularly for an icecream and ride on the Steam Train. Now my family enjoys riding our bikes to Semaphore and exploring the local eateries on Semaphore Road.

Don’t get burned in an unregulated industry. I am an insured, licensed Builder (BLD268703), Building Works Supervisor (BLD266833) and extensively experienced Building Inspector based in West Lakes Shore.

I offer a superior expert professional inspection service with an emphasis on communicating with you throughout the process. I provide industry-leading same-day detailed reports formulated upon the AS4349 Australian Standard which are replete with photographic images. I always make the time to ensure that you completely understand what you are buying by either meeting you on-site at the conclusion of the inspection, or by phoning you post-inspection to fully explain the report.

My background in domestic and commercial building is richly diverse; from client liaison, designing/drafting of working drawings and estimating, through to seeking development approvals, material procurement, and site management/supervision. I have conducted thousands of pre-purchase, staged progress, pre-handover, problem analysis, and pre-lease residential and commercial building inspections all over South Australia.

I am also an executive committee member and the elected treasurer of the Association of Building Consultants (ABC), and a full member of the Housing Industry Association (HIA).

Please check my Google Reviews to see what people say about me, and validate my licence with Consumer and Business Services SA.

Unfortunately, this means I cannot always answer my phone, but please leave me a message and I will return your call as soon as I possibly can. Alternatively, you can book online on my website.
