About Travis

My experience in Engineering, Residential and Commercial Construction, Demolition, Renovation, Property Maintenance, and Investment over 25+ years gives me insight to more than just the visually apparent. The team and I at CPRNZ can produce a far superior quality report than our competitors and have that report to our clients within 8 hours or less from finishing the inspection process.

Every inspection is completed using the industry leading Spectora Inspection Software platform.

However, our unique report templates have been designed and built by myself to provide not only the relevant observations in an easy to read format both digitally and as PDF. Our reports have also been designed to provide educational information about the key components that you, as a home owner should know about so you can best maintain your investment, or simply know what to look for when looking at potential properties.

If we can educate our customers on exactly what components and areas they should inspect for themselves prior to enlisting our services, then they can weed through any properties outside of their renovation/maintenance/budget range. Saving our return customers time and money during the property hunting process.

Each inspection is specifically tailored to the individuality every property holds in respect to its age, location, construction methods and style.

With over 7200 inspections and published reports the team at CPRNZ have mastered this field, the result being the fastest, most informed, educational, fully comprehensive building report available in the New Zealand housing market.

We use a two-person inspection system to ensure total coverage of each property. The efficiency of our unique system enables us the ability to provide more to you for less. For example, at no extra cost we provide full thermal imaging of all perimeter walls, wet areas, ceiling cavities, plumbing systems, and electrical services.

Our reports are not purely focused on the critical aspects of a property, we take the extra care to balance out and/or highlight the positive features of every building. We have a professional photographer on staff who has trained our Inspectors to showcase the highlights of the property.

All the necessary information is accumulated and formatted into your report to provide you with everything you should require to make an informed decision when the time comes for buying or selling your property. If you are still in need of reassurance, more information of any kind or would just like to chat about the property. We are available to our clients 24 hours 7 days a week.
