Are you worried that your residential or commercial property has been adversely affected by moisture? Reach out to CPRNZ for a comprehensive Weather Tightness inspection
Invasive Cavity Moisture Inspections
As the name suggests, an invasive cavity moisture inspection is where our two-person team will diligently and carefully inspect all the cavities or crevices in your home for unwanted moisture or leaking. This type of service is strongly recommended for monolithic cladding-type dwellings, which are homes that are constructed primarily using plaster cladding. In New Zealand, many homes were built using this method between the late 1980s and the early 2000s, culminating in the “leaky building crisis” of the 2000s. It has since been proven that these cladding-type homes are more susceptible to leakages, meaning they must be inspected for cladding defects both before and after purchases.
An Overview of Invasive Inspections
A typical invasive moisture inspection is more comprehensive and taxing than a regular home inspection. Using our two-person team, we’ll endeavour to complete the process in under 4 hours. It could take more time (or less time), depending on how complicated and extensive your home is. The more crevices and cavities to inspect, the longer the inspection will take. We remove switch sockets and use endoscopy cameras to inspect behind wall linings and in any cavity’s that show any potential moisture issues.
Some customers are concerned that our inspection could damage their home. We guarantee to our customers or any prospective clients in need of a review that our techniques will not cause any damage to their home. Our process will provide you with clear evidence (photos) of the overall quality and condition of your wall framings and interior cavities. Our visual inspection will pick up any mould or decay that should be treated or monitored. Once this has been completed, you’ll receive a comprehensive report (usually over 100 pages) from our team within 24 hours.
Non-Invasive Moisture Inspections
On the other hand, if the building does not require an invasive inspection, we can provide a non-invasive moisture inspection. This involves FLIR thermal imaging and FLIR Moisture testing.
The opposite side to any moisture concern is double checked with our high tech tools to determine the cause and provide you with a solution. We inspect all roofing systems with a 4K resolution DJI Drone. This way we can take all the footage we need and inspect in even more depth off-site. Our drones can pick up a loose screw from many metres above the building, resulting in us being able to pin point any potential concern, ANYWHERE! Not just a peek over the roofing system from a ladder!
On average, our reports contain upwards of 150 photos, accompanied by clear and concise written documentation.
Once the inspection has been completed, we will compile the report and begin pinpointing potential issues with the home or commercial property (if any). At the same time, we’ll make sure to showcase all the positives of the property, like areas that enhance its functionality and style.

Travis is a great guy to work with. He is very professional and responsive. The report he has done for us was very detailed and valuable. His professional advice has helped us save thousands of dollars. The money on the report was well spent and greatly justified!
12/10 Recommend! I don’t place to much weight on reviews and have never actually written one, however, I was so blown away by CPRNZ I have been making it my mission to let anyone requiring a builder’s inspection/report to use CPRNZ and not anyone else.
First of all, I have never received such great customer service! Jinita was incredibly helpful and responsive. I was blown away by the report as a previous report on the same property which had been done by the owners had little to know real information. Not only was the report comprehensive in its general assessment, it highlighted why there were issues and what the actual condition should be. I found this helpful as don’t speak house and would otherwise probably not know what I was looking at.The report was turned around unbelieveably quickly which was perfect as the house buying process can generally be quite tight.
Overall, I was simply blown away by the service and thoroughness of both Travis and Jinita and I would highly recommend them to anyone. There is clearly alot of love and pride in what they do and that it not hard to find. Take it from someone who is never bothered to write reviews, use CPRNZ :)
By far the best experience I’ve had dealing with builders/building reports and inspections.
Travis and Jinita were both very friendly, kind, respectful (I was working from home and they made a massive effort not to disturb during my meetings) and all round good genuine people to deal with.
Me being an amateur in the arts or building, asked many questions and all my questions were welcomed and answered clearly, detailed in their comprehensive report and …the best part.. could ask them further for ideas on how to remediate any maintenance issues.. too good and just fantastic!
They provided me with a full list of prioritised maintenance items as to where to focus my attention. This is invaluable and is going to save me so much $$ as I now know exactly where to focus my time and energy.
I could clearly tell that they both have a passion for problem solving and have applied that to turning houses into quality homes.
I would highly recommend Travis & Jinita! Quick report turnaround and very high quality and detailed work.
CPR provides a great service, a easy to understand comprehensive report.
Travis is really helpful and helps with any questions. They even respond after hours
The team at CPRNZ are incredibly professional and thorough at what the provide. They delivered on time and met their commitment with a quality report on my house. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone needing their services.
We used CPR on a pre purchase report and found the inspector very obliging, thorough and a comprehensive report was emailed the same day.
He also discussed any of our concerns and we felt the report was a huge factor in our decision making process. His fees are also very reasonable.
Looking to purchase a property in the Paraparaumu area and need an amazingly detailed and quick building / property report then this is the company to use. The team were responsive, easy to deal with, professional yet friendly and we got the full report within two days of engaging them. The team at Comprehensive Property Report Ltd ensured that getting a property / building report does not add the stress of trying to purchase a new home.
Fast and highly professional property assessment/report. Travis and Jinita did an extremely thorough job and provided a comprehensive assessment. Travis followed up quickly after the report was sent and answered all my questions, he was super helpful and pragmatic offering advice, solutions and contacts. I would absolutely recommend and not hesitate to use CPR again. 5/5 stars.
Travis was awesome – really thorough, and took the time to talk me through what urgent plumbing work needed doing in layperson’s terms that I could understand. I was able to forward his report to the owners, who have used this to get the plumbing work completed before settlement date.
I’ve used Travis for a few reports recently and he has been great and really helpful and professional on every occasion. The reports are far superior to anything I’ve had in the past and I’ll use them again every time. I highly recommend!

Without a doubt, Travis and his team provide the best building inspection service I have ever had. I used another company a few years ago when I purchased our first home but that one was not even close. Definitely recommend CPR.
We are so impressed with the standard and quality of the report we received from our property inspection. Travis and Jinita are very knowledgeable in their work, their communication is top notch and we would absolutely recommend them. They offer a level of service that is seldom found, and are the most professional tradespeople we have dealt with.
I have recently had the priviledge of dealing with CPR on a property we were pursuing. It had a thorough building inspection report, but there were concerns. Travis completed an inspection with us and he was an absolute God sent. He quickly identified concerns and his knowledge and understanding of building practices saved us a huge amount of money which we would potentially have had to spend on repairs, had the deal gone through. We highly recommend his services to any prospective buyer. Thank you CPR. Lifesaving decision. :D
Highly recommended. So obliging, efficient and pleasant to deal with. On the same day as the inspection we received a detailed 126 page report, plus summary – impressively detailed with lots of photos documenting issues. Travis recognised major structural defects, with the house, that the vendors own building report had missed. This saved us huge disappointment and costs if we had unknowingly proceeded with the purchase. I will definitely be using them again in our search.
Incredible service, prompt, knowledgeable, trustworthy are just a few ways to describe what you will get with Travis & Jinita at CPR. From the moment you call them, it begins. We asked for a report on a property whilst living in another city & couldn’t have asked for more helpful & trustworthy people. Issues with the property saw CPR follow-up for us & combined with their great local knowledge, they gave us the confidence to go ahead with the house purchase. We fully recommend CPR.
I’m currently living in Australia and recently ordered a property report with CPRNZ. The website functionality is excellent, making the process very simple. Communication was first class and Jinita organised everything with the selling agent. I have ordered multiple property reports in Australia but this was by far the most comprehensive report I have ever seen. The report was completed very quickly, was 200 pages in length and contained over 860 photos. The inclusion of several short videos took this report to another level. Thanks Jinita and Travis and keep up the great work. Look forward to using you again if the need arises.
