Building and Pest Inspection: What Do We Inspect During the Process

Interiors & Exteriors

Grounds
Fences, retaining walls, steps, walkways, driveways, pergolas, drainage, etc. as just some of the areas we check during the building and pest inspection.

Structural
Our experienced inspectors will check the structure for active termites and subterranean termites. This takes account of the Garage, Chimney, Attic, balconies, deck, foundation, basement, patio, and a whole lot more.

Who Can Benefit from Building Inspection/Pest Inspection?

Building inspections are required before buying or selling a property ensuring its free from any structural issues that could cost you thousands to rectify. Why do some people buy a house first and then decide to do a building inspection when potentially it might be too late as you cannot go back on your contract, always conduct an inspection with a registered building practitioner prior to purchase? 

The clause within your contract ‘conditional upon a building pest inspection” does not provide the protection that many people believe,did you know that your building inspection is required to be conducted by a registered building practitioner so how do you know that your building inspector is registered when in fact he may not be, always check his name under the database of the Victoria Building Authority (VBA)

Advance Tools & Technology​

Moisture Meters

Moisture meters are used to detect the presence & levels of moisture within building materials such as wood, drywall, & concrete. These meters help identify areas of potential water damage, leaks, or moisture intrusion, which leads to structural issues or mold growth.

Thermal Camera

Infrared camera building inspections identify problems by viewing differences in temperature on a gradient scale through thermal imaging. his is a non-invasive temperature measurement tool that can keep you from spending money on repairs in the future.

Borescope

A borescope is a flexible tube with a camera and light attached to it. It’s used to visually inspect areas that are difficult to access, such as inside wall cavities, ductwork, or pipes. By using borescope, our inspectors can examine the condition of hidden components and identify any defects or damages.

Termatrac Device

Termatrac’s detection technology is unique to the market, designed and specifically calibrated to detect termites and other insect activity. The radar technology confirms movement by penetrating through most building materials to locate and track termite and other insect activity.
