The purchase of a new property may be the biggest investment that an individual makes in a lifetime.
With termites causing more damage to properties throughout Australia than fire, flood and cyclones put together it is critical that your investment decision is made with reliable information regarding Timber Pest Damage and or Infestation.
A visual timber pest inspection carried out to the Australian Standard will report on Timber Pest Infestation that may include termites, borers or timber rot and conditions that may be conducive to pests such as lack of ventilation, water leaks or poor drainage.
On completion of an inspection, the inspector will give a verbal indication of the inspection results with the Report being completed and posted by the close of business the next day.
Reports can also be sent electronically.
Termites by their very nature are difficult to locate and some areas of a house may be impossible to access.
The inspections are non-invasive and will not involve dismantling of structures. Height and crawl space limitations may limit visible evidence. Even with new electronic equipment such as thermal imaging cameras, areas such as inaccessible wall cavities may harbour undetected Timber Pest Activity and or Damage.
