We can advise you on whether your property may contain asbestos, any estimated costs of repairs for your structure or even building advice if you’re considering renovating after your purchase.
Our full inspection process is divided into four stages, each comprehensively covering a different aspect of your property to investigate any vulnerabilities.

Visual Assessment

Phase One is a visual assessment of your property. Our building inspectors will test appliances, lights and other fittings. Making sure all your fixtures are up to par, we cover basic house integrity to give you an overall idea of the state of your property.

Laser Levelling & Thermal Imaging

Phase Two is laser levelling and thermal imaging. This process allows us to detect thermal anomalies and any sinking or uneven floors, ceilings or walls. Thermal imaging also lets us discover any visual evidence if termite activity is present. It can isolate heat sources generated by termites on building surfaces and helps trace their nest and entry points through the building.

Inspection of Roof Cavity & Subfloors

Phase Three is an inspection of the roof cavity and subfloor areas to assess for any damage, leaks or structural issues. Our building inspectors will thoroughly inspect the unique layout of your property.

Building Pest Inspections

Phase Four is finalising our comprehensive building pest inspections Melbourne report, giving you everything you need to know to make an informed decision on the purchase of your property. You’ll receive your report no later than 24 hours after the inspection.

The Latest Pest Detection Technology

 As professionals, we use the latest pest detection technology to quickly detect and map out termite paths and nests as well as identify other pests. Use of these tools is included as part of our pest and building inspections Melbourne service.

Termatrac T3i Radar Termite Detector

This radar termite detector uses low energy microwaves to penetrate and detect any activity in the walls, such as the movement of termites and other insects.

Moisture and Humidity Meter

Using a sensitive moisture meter, we can record changes in moisture levels to identify problems and potential spaces where termites might build nests. This meter can read concentrated presence of moistures on various surfaces from walls and floors without ever needing to puncture holes or damage the property in any way.

FLIR E5 Infrared Camera Thermal Imaging

Termites generate heat when they’re active, allowing us to identify the areas where they’re most active using advanced thermal imaging tools. This is a very efficient non-invasive method of detecting termites in building inspections.

Comprehensive Pre-Purchase Pest Inspection Report

After every building inspection, we create a comprehensive report detailing everything we find, potential risks and hazards, and our recommendations on what steps you should take next. While many minor pest infestations can be easily remedied, larger infestations can be incredibly costly. Without a detailed report, you won’t be able to identify these issues.

If you’re planning on buying a home and discover it has termites or similar pests, it’s important to weigh up the pros and cons before purchasing. Our building inspection report will help you do that.
