Tony, our Taranaki Inspector, comes from a background in the construction and engineering industry. He has the experience and the eye for detail that you need to complete your house inspection. Tony is a qualified level 1 thermographer to ISO 1843-4 and reports to ISO 1337-9, so he has the skill to carry out full weather-tightness inspections. He has lived in Taranaki for the past 20 years and manages the business with his partner, Dianne. When they’re not out inspecting homes in the area, they are fishing, gardening, or catching up with family.
Buying a home is often one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life; Tony & Dianne of NZ House Surveys Taranaki can help you ensure your next purchase is everything you imagine it to be.
At NZ House Surveys we send two inspectors to every home, so you can be sure you are getting a thorough inspection. Your report is written in plain English and we offer a follow up service, so we can discuss your questions in detail.
We also offer thermography reports to ISO 1843-4 with reporting to ISO 1337-9 and mould risk/ investigation assessments using a Thermohygrometer Smart Probe, perfect for housing, warehousing and storage facilities.

"We were purchasing our first home in New Plymouth and contacted Tony from NZ house Survey to conduct a pre purchase inspection on a house we found. He was very professional and advised on the best inspection for us. Tony and Dianne did the inspection soon after contact with them and the report was in our Inbox the following day. All the information was well presented and Tony was very helpful with following up and answering all my questions I had about the report. We felt that after the service we received, we were in good hands. We would highly recommend the team of Tony and Dianne to anyone that is looking for good friendly service in the New Plymouth region." Sharon and Mark

The service was well worth the money and I recommend Tony to anyone needing a speedy builders report when purchasing a property. Thanks Tony!" J. Brown

My fiancé and I had the privilege to meet Tony and Dianne from NZ House Surveys, through word of mouth in Taranaki. We recently put an offer into our first home and contacted Tony and Dianne to see if they were able to complete a house / building inspection. Not to mention this was very last minute and we understood how busy they were already- needless to say they exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Us being first time home owners, we were as you can imagine extremely nervous and concerned we were ticking all the right boxes, dealing with Tony and Dianne certainly didn’t feel like a business transaction- they were fully aware of our expectations, our concerns and being first time home buyers. We have never struck two people in business so willing to talk us through the process in laymen terms which was a huge help for us!! We are ever so grateful for the professionalism, honesty and diligence both Tony and Dianne put into their work- highly recommended and look forward to supporting them through business in any way! A huge thank you to Tony and Dianne once again- you have helped a young couple make a dream come true! Tania and Steve

Both you and Tony were very knowledgeable and happy to answer all my questions. We would not hesitate to recommend your service to friends and family. Thanks again. Kimmy Rowland
Thank you very much for your very comprehensive report on the above property received today. Also, the subsequent telephone chat with you Tony. We appreciate the thoroughness of the report and your willingness to undertake the inspection at such short notice. We now have urgency to decide overnight whether we will go ahead with purchase given the nature of some of the defects. It is at times like this that one wishes to have the skills of all trades to undertake the necessary tasks. Anyway, grateful thanks again for helping us out for a service which we gratefully value. Barry and Jill Holmes
We were so pleased to provide very positive feedback to you in May this year. You will recall that we were also delighted to have you publicise the excellent services that you and Tony provided.

Very happy with your prompt service, thank you. Jill Braggins
