Communication with Josh was great. He replied quickly and arranged the building and pest inspection with the agent. The report we received was thorough and Josh took the time to talk us through it, answering all our questions. We would definitely use Josh again and highly recommend his services.

We were referred to Josh by our brother who works in the building industry as we needed a complex expert report for a home we purchased with many non disclosed issued. Josh may not be the cheapest but is one the most competent and recognized in the country. I wish we had used Josh from the beginning. Due to Josh's report we had all our issues resolved.

The quality of Joshs work is second to none. His experience is obvious and we cant recommend him enough. He saved us $1000s after he highlighted many major issues the agent tried to hide and did not shows in the report supplied by the agent.

The owner Josh goes above an beyond to assist you. Josh is extremely knowledgeable, professional, reliable and informative. He is incredibly thorough, and pays very close attention to detail, which is so important when carrying out an inspection. He doesn’t miss a trick. We were incredibly happy with the level of service provided to us by Sibi. We wouldn’t use another building and pest inspector now we found this business. Thank you for all your time and effort Josh. We are so appreciative.

Josh knows his stuff! There's no beating around the bush with Josh if he finds a pest problem he's going to let you know. I was thankful that what I thought was a termite issue turned out to be something else. Josh totally put my mind at ease. On another occasion he helped me get rid of a wasp problem.
