Who we are

With heart and dedication, the dynamic duo of Mark & Julie Paterson (Sherlock & Watson) at North Star Inspections have been extending their expert Building and Weathertightness Inspections since 2005.

Their journey is one of commitment, where they’ve nurtured a stellar reputation for detailed inspections, dependable service, profound know-how, and comprehensive, clear reports. They ensure that these reports are not just thorough but also promptly delivered within 24 hours, and quite often on the very day of the inspection.

Mark’s origins as a builder, his later transition into a qualified Building Inspector, his affiliation with the NZIBI, and fulfilling the Banks’ Weathertightness criteria, is a testament to his thorough and reliable service. Carrying Professional Indemnity Insurance, Mark delivers peace of mind alongside his expertise. Julie brings her invaluable insight in building and project management to the table, complemented by her proficiency in Infrared scanning, a skill she has been honing since 2006.
