Combination Building and Pest Inspections

This is essentially a visual inspection of all the accessible spaces of the property. All the areas will be thoroughly investigated by our skilled, certified and highly experienced building and pest inspectors. We follow the AS4349.1-2007 Australian Standard. As part of this inspection, we look for any major faults and defects, which can lead to safety hazards and evidence of minor defects; we also provide an overall report on the property’s condition. Typically, this report would cover:

  • Interior of the property
  • Exterior of the property
  • Condition of the roof void
  • Condition of the subfloor
  • Integrity of the roof exterior
  • As part of the pest inspections, our experts check all the above spaces and features. In addition, they check the pavement, fences, the outbuildings & timbers in the garden. They will also inspect the trees & stumps all around the property. This is a highly customised service, as every property is different and needs specific inspection solutions. We provide you with complete, detailed written reports, & photographs too. These reports will be provided on the same day that we conduct the inspection.

    We have all the necessary certifications such as Diploma of Building Surveying, Cert IV - Occupational Health & Safety, Cert IV - Building Construction and Qualified Timber Pest Inspector required to carry out this job in an expert manner.
