About Our Company

Over 30 years’ experience as both builders and building inspectors

Buying or selling a home can be a complicated, stressful experience.

Karen Logan Building Inspection Reports aims to eliminate the guesswork from pricing, compliance and negotiation by presenting the facts in simple, plain English.

Our Director, Yeppoon local Karen Logan, has spent her entire life in the building industry, both as a builder and as a building inspector.

Since first visiting a job site at the age of 4, Karen has centred her life around building, firstly as an apprentice carpenter, and then as a licensed builder, carpenter and joiner, and as a business owner. She has built a number of houses in Yeppoon and performed countless renovations and modifications around Brisbane and northern New South Wales.

While working as a builder, Karen began performing pre-purchase inspections for friends and acquaintances, and quickly realised that this was a new area in which she could apply her unique knowledge as an actual builder.

Since obtaining her inspection licence, Karen has established herself and her business as a highly reputable and uncompromisingly thorough service. She has a passion for uncovering hidden factors and issues that can become clinchers during building sales, purchases and handovers. Karen is also a licensed pool safety inspector.
