Termite & Building Inspections

Have your property checked for termites

These little critters can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your property. And worse, they are very hard to detect. That's why a termite inspection by a specialist is essential, to know for sure if your property is at risk.

Your pest inspector will be licenced, insured and experienced in using our special detection units. This means your property will be checked properly and you can understand the risks.

 

We recommend a termite inspection alongside a building inspection

Our pest inspectors work together with our building inspectors for a complete and thorough review of your home before you buy. We check all aspects of the property, including the roof space and under floor areas when accessible. We look for active termites, or previous colonies that have weakened the building structure. We also check for other pests such as borers. We consider the likelihood of a potential termite attack in future and provide recommendations.

 

Termites cause extensive damage

Termites are more likely to cause damage to your home than floods or fires. Because termites live in colonies, they can multiply quickly. And with a reliable source of food (your house), they can break off into multiple colonies in one building.

An infestation can cause structural damage in your walls and floors, as termites consume and weaken the wood. Signs of damage can be hard to spot, and in some cases, it looks like damp or water damage. Our experts know the difference, and use specialised equipment to test your property for signs of infestation. We even check the trees, boundary fences and retaining walls on the property, because this is how they travel from someone else's home to yours!
