Your report will include photos of any significant hazards or defects.

Buying a property is one of the biggest purchase you will undertake, therefore we recommend booking a combined building and pest inspection to ensure you gain an accurate understanding of the overall property condition.

A Pest Only Inspection is carried out when you are confident with the overall condition of the property, but you need to ensure any pest activity is identified. Your inspector will investigate for termite activity or damage, as well as pest attack or damage. Your inspector will visually inspect all accessible areas of your property. Areas that are commonly inspected are roof cavities and subfloor areas, as well as the interior and exterior of the property.

Otherwise known as a dilapidation report, an Existing Building Condition Report is undertaken to assess the current state of a property, it is generally conducted prior to additional construction or demolition work being undertaken on the property.

Your inspector will report on any visible cracks or movement within the property and the surrounding land.

This kind of report provides the contractor with an independent record of any adjoining properties condition, prior to the commencement of building works. The report may be used as evidence by the contractor if a dispute arises between any property owner claiming that the works have resulted in damage to their adjoining property.

Additionally, property owners also like to undertake an Existing Building Condition Report to determine if any new demolition or construction works have resulted in any property damage that wasn’t there prior.

A Body Corporate Inspection Report is carried out within an apartment, unit or townhouse complex on behalf of the owners. This report includes inspection of all internal and external common areas, including; hallways, entries, foyers, external facades, pool areas, etc. The report will identify areas of concern that will need to be rectified.

EQUIPPED INSPECTORS USING
THE LATEST EQUIPMENT

We use the most up-to-date moisture testing technology available. This equipment is used to detect moisture behind a range of building materials, including paint, wallpaper, plasterboard, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, timber, ceiling tiles, and membranes.

Our Perth building inspectors use the moisture meter to conduct additional non-invasive testing if visual indications of dampness are detected. The moisture meter creates a map of different moistness levels in surfaces like walls and floors without requiring holes or damage to the property.

Your Building Inspector will use this meter if there is visual evidence of moisture damage within the property. The moisture meter also identifies termite risk areas by reading the concentrated presence of moisture within the surfaces of the property.

Top-Tier Sensor Technology

Our building inspectors in Perth also use the most up-to-date thermal sensor technology. The thermal sensor aids in the detection of heat sources from timber pests on buildings’ surfaces and in identifying nest and entry points within the structure.

Additionally, the thermal sensor will also pick any thermal anomalies within building elements that cannot be seen with the naked eye. If a visual anomaly is identified during the inspection, further non-invasive investigation can be undertaken with the thermal sensor.

Frequently asked Questions

FAQs

A building and pest inspection is undertaken prior to a buyer purchasing a property, and is generally a condition of sale. It is essential that you appoint an experienced, licensed building and pest inspector to carry out the inspection to ensure all major and minor defects are reported. The inspector will return a report on the property noting any defects found, your report will also include photos of all reported issues.

All of our building and pest inspectors are licensed builders who have been operating under that license for at least 10 years. As well as this, all of our inspectors carry pest certifications and their own insurance.

We will work with your agent to arrange a time that suits all parties. Provide your agents details through the online form or over the phone and we will get in contact with them. If you have already found a time that works with your agent, that’s fantastic, let us know and we will try to accommodate the given time.

We welcome owners and buyers to be present at the time of inspection, although we ask that you leave the inspector to carry out their inspection and wait to ask your questions at the end. This allows the inspector to concentrate solely on assessing the property to deliver a non-bias report.

A typical combined building and pest inspection will take between one to two hours.
