Building and Pest

A Building and Pest Inspection looks at building issues and pest activity.

The Building inspection is a visual appraisal of the condition of the property, highlighting major and minor defects and safety hazards.

The Pest Inspection involves a visual inspection of all accessible areas of the property to see if there is any evidence of active termites or previous termite damage.

The inspector will also note whether the property has a termite management system installed.

The house is checked for any high moisture readings especially surrounding the wet areas like bathrooms.

Other areas that are checked are the yard and exterior of the building, internal rooms, ceiling roof void and house foundations.
