Building Inspections throughout Melbourne Suburbs

The buying process for a new or older property can sometimes be stressful and tedious. This is true, especially if you don’t know how to make the right decisions about whether a new investment property is a must-buy.

Building inspections are essential when looking for new investments in Melbourne. Fortunately, many building and pest inspection companies in the region offer a fair price for your reasonable expectations.

Building Inspections In Melbourne

A building inspection completed by a professional inspector should be presented in a very detailed report with photos and recommendations attached showing where the defect is located and how best to rectify it.

Building inspection services include a structural inspection of the property which would include but not be limited to the subfloor, roof space, and all internal areas of the house and it’s recommended to always include a termite(pest)inspection as termites are silent killers that have the potential to destroy a house without you realizing there is an issue.

It mystifies me why so many people when they buy are property do not conduct a building and pest inspection but will do an inspection for a car.

Many may think that building inspections are not needed when purchasing a property but it is one of the most important assessments you should make before signing a contract.

Always ensure your inspector is registered with the VBA and remove the word “structural” from your “building and pest conditional clause”

Defining Building Inspections

You can find lots of companies that offer a wide array of property inspection services when you navigate the building inspection industry.

A building inspection is an inspection performed by a building inspector or a VBA-registered building practitioner who inspects for defects within a property to allow a purchaser to make an informed decision whether to proceed with the purchase or to renegotiate the contract price.

Under these circumstances, it would be foolhardy to proceed without the proper advice, check with the VBA if your inspector is registered.  

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.


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.
