About us

Albert van Wyk

I  know where to look for typical mistakes and defects. I know how the work is supposed to be done, and have practical experience of how to repair defects.

My experience in the building industry stretches very wide and over 38 years. I have constructed many luxurious houses on difficult stands to the satisfaction of very meticulous clients as well as office blocks, factories, cluster developments and townhouse developments. Many of these homes have been featured in SA Home Owner and on the TV program Top Billing

My knowledge of the National Building Regulations and the NHBRC requirements is excellent and I know how to apply it in practice.

I am also an ITC Certified Roof Inspector, one of only 40 in the country.

I do roof inspections and handle the disputes for our clients. We have won numerous court cases on behalf of our clients due to my knowledge and experience.

I recently published a book “The Proud Home Owner” in which I guide the consumer through the difficult tasks of buying and selling a house, building a house and doing alterations and what maintenance to do on your home.

If we do an inspection for you, you will receive a copy as a gift, or you can order one at www.proudhomeowner.co.za 

NHBRC

The NHBRC was established in 1996 (when I joined them) to govern the home building industry and protect all home buyers. The Consumer Protection Act had to be implemented in 2011 in order to also protect consumers.

I started out in financial advertising and printing and went into the family construction business for 12 years.

The day I started in the construction business, my father started building a house. I went to the house every day and learned about the construction process from the beginning. This has given me an edge over other home inspectors.

When I identify a problem in a house, I knows what has caused it.

I am passionate about property and it is very upsetting to see how clients are being taken for a ride by unscrupulous contractors. In September 2016 I was instrumental in assisting 12 clients cancel their building contracts with a contractor listed on the JSE. I did snag list inspections and involved the banks, as the developer was not budging. He refused to cancel the sales and refused to repair the mess he had made.

Once the banks got sight of my reports they sent one of their own inspectors out, and the banks then cancelled all their bonds on the entire development. The clients got all their money and interest back and could find more suitable and better built accommodation.

I  qualified as an ITC Certified Roof Inspector in 2017, only the second woman and one of only 40 inspectors in the country.

I have done inspections for large companies as part of their due diligence before they buy properties and have many returning clients.

I have 5 years property inspection experience and will give you a detailed report on a house you want to buy, a snag list, maintenance report or assist with a report for a due diligence.
