I agree 100%. Visit every day if possible. If it doesn't look right it probably isn't.

Internal NBN box and temp in the garage during Summer

Sectional garage doors can be insulated after handover with polystyrene infills. I am going to do mine to reduce summer garage temperatures and my garage faces east.
