This inspection is designed to detect the presence of timber pests (termites, borers and fungi), whether there is any timber pest damage present and highlight any conditions / construction issues that will make a timber pest problem more likely in the future.
This information is important for potential buyers in making a decision to purchase and negotiating the price. Learn more
Our comprehensive termite inspection
All our termite inspections are carried out according to Australian standards 3660.2 and will determine:
- The level of any termite activity
- Whether there is any termite damage, and
- If there are any conditions conducive to termite attack
What areas of your property do we inspect?
- Inspect all buildings, structures and attachments within the property boundaries. This includes full inspection every room in turn and of the roof void and subfloor areas (if present)
- Inspect timber fences, decks, pergolas, outbuildings, trees and landscape timbers in a 30m radius of the main building (within the property boundaries)
What termite inspection equipment do we use?
Our key piece of detection equipment is our moisture metre – for finding leaks and potential areas of termite activity. However, it is our skills and experience from years as builders and inspectors that allow us to know where to look and spot the early signs of any problems.
What information is in the termite inspection report?
We will discuss any findings with you directly, but the key output is a comprehensive written report with photos detailing:
- Any visual evidence of current termite activity (species, location, extent)
- The extent and location of any termite damage
- Any construction issues and environmental conditions that make your property more likely to come under termite attack
- A summary of the risk of ongoing and future damage to your property
- Recommendations for solving construction and environmental issues to make the property less likely to suffer termite attack
