At NZ House Surveys, we are proud to offer our exclusive QuakeCheck reports.
New Zealand has seen a staggering increase in the frequency and magnitude of earthquakes – located on the ring of fire, New Zealand sits on hundreds of fault lines creating high risk areas across our nation. Living in an earthquake prone country, the greatest thing you can do is to be prepared.
Quakecheck inspections are undertaken by our trained inspectors and will identify potential threats and failures in and around your home using our 30 point checklist. Our report will suggest a pathway for remedial action to minimise the risk of damage to your home; to protect the lives of your loved ones before a significant seismic event strikes.
Our team are available to take you call today, because no one knows what tomorrow may bring.
