Expands its General Home Inspection Services to Include Alternative Building Technologies (ABTs)

DURBAN, KZN. (May 5, 2022) -- Picture Window Property Inspections is pleased to announce that it is now expanding its General Home Inspection services to include residential stand-alone structures constructed with Light Steel Frame (LSF), and Timber Frame (TF) building methods. Equipped with the knowledge and training from the Southern African Light Steel Frame Building Association (SASFA)-- and the training and support from InterNACHI® -- the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, as it relates to Timber Frame Building, these inspections will result in a building-technology-specific home inspection report that speaks to South African National Standards (SANS) 517 and 10082, respectively.

With the growing preference for alternative building construction methods, homeowners wishing to have their LSF-built or TF-built homes inspected may contact Picture Window Property Inspections to schedule their General Home Inspection at 083 777 2968, or by emailing


Paulo is a proud member in good standing of InterNACHI®, has over 28 years of experience in the built environment sector, and holds two degrees and a diploma obtained in South Africa, and several training and educational certificates obtained both locally and internationally.
