Identifying Any Significant Issues

A combined building and pest inspection identifies any significant building, safety and pest issues that may devalue the property.

Building inspections are undertaken by a licensed builder who will identify any structural defects, safety or pest issues in accordance with the Australian Standard (AS 4349.1-2007).

The inspector will access the roof void, the sub-floor as well as the entire building externally and internally.

As experienced inspectors, we tap on frames, door jams, cabinets and components of wood construction to detect the presence of weakened timber. 

Damaged timber may not be obvious or visible through painted surfaces.

We use the latest technology to help identify the presence of moisture within the dwelling.

Moisture is one of the major causes of damage to a dwelling. Moisture can create conditions conducive to timber pest attack and also lead to major and minor structural damage.

We will identify signs of water leaks from water pipes, baths and showers stalls and is high on the list of priorities.

Building inspections use a combination of sight checking and the latest thermal technology.

  • A Building & Pest Inspection Report is fast becoming mandatory by larger Banks prior to them allowing settlement to take place.
  • A Report is also quite often the only legal way that you have to pull out of a contract if you are concerned about a major issue in relation to the condition of the property.
