Movement of wall in apartment roof, in Wavell Heights, a Northern suburb of Brisbane.
Movement of wall in apartment roof. Identified in a building inspection carried out by Peter Weddell, owner/operator of Qld Home Buyers Inspection Service.
Considerable movement of block walls between units of a relatively newly built complex.
- The gap could not be observed from the roof access hole and would not have been picked up by anyone not prepared to climb fully into the roof area.
- Being larger than usual the gap has compromised the fire rated wall between the units.
- This would require rectification to satisfy the Building Code requirements
- Your insurer may not cover you in case of a fire and damage it may cause to other parts of the building.
