Why is a building and pest inspection so important for my Gold Coast property?

Purchasing a residential or commercial property on the Gold Coast is a big investment and as such, you should understand the condition of the property and that you are getting what you pay for.

Building defects can be safety issues or affect the livability of the property.  They may require expensive repairs.  In addition, termites can go unnoticed for years if the house is not checked properly and the first time you may become aware of their presence is when you put a hand through the wall, at this stage it is too late, extensive damage has been done.

Don’t go into your purchase blind, get a full understanding of the condition of the property.  Having an experienced industry professional assess the property prior to finalising your purchase could save you thousands when buying your home or investment property on the Gold Coast.

All the latest technology and training

At Dedant Building and Pest Inspections, all our Building Inspectors have decades of experience in the construction industry.

Furthermore, they are also fully insured and qualified in all the tasks they carry out.

Thermal Imaging Camera

At every inspection, we include the use of a thermal imaging tool. This tool will indicate any significant heat sources generated by termites behind walls.

Moisture Metre

We also use a moisture metre throughout the property to identify high moisture levels within the building. High moisture levels behind the wall could indicate leaking pipes or waterproofing issues.  High moisture creates a potential risk of termites, as they are attracted to the wet timber for food.

Termatrac Termite Radar

Termatrac is used when further investigation is required. It is a radar that can detect termite movement.

Asbestos testing

If you are looking at renovating your Gold Coast home and are concerned about asbestos, Dedant can help.

We can carry out Asbestos testing around the home.

This involves removing a small piece of the material and sending it off to a lab to get tested at an accredited lab.

For a more detailed explanation, refer to our previous blog on the subject.

Asbestos is a danger to your health. If you suspect asbestos in your home, book a test today.
