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.

"Hi Tony, the building report was really thorough and having the quote option was fantastic as we managed to get a reduced price on our house due to that. Have had a few quotes for the roof now and they were very close to what you advised so that saved us time having the quote option. You were very prompt and report was easy to read."Lauren Griffiths

"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
"To call themselves 'prompt' is an under statement. From the moment I first spoke to Tony, he had everything sorted. We needed a quick turnover on the builders report and they certainly delivered. The report was thorough, yet easy to read. Tony communicated with the Real Estate agent for us. 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
