Building And Pest Inspection Gold Coast
If you intend to buy a house anywhere on the Gold Coast, you can trust our building and pest inspection services for a detailed property inspection before you make an offer to the current owner.
The standard procedure goes like this: we send our building inspector and our timber pest inspector, if needed, to assess the property you wish to purchase. They will look for all construction flaws, termite infestations or any other pests and they will make a building inspection report which will include all their findings. If needed, we can document this report with photos, so that you have all information required for making an informed choice regarding the purchasing price of the property. Our expert building inspectors will only make for visual inspections, therefore you don’t have to be afraid that the property is going to suffer changes or damage because of the inspection. They don’t need to dig or use other invasive procedures in order to determine whether there are aspects you should worry about.
Our Gold Coast Services Include The Following:
These inspections are done by a licensed builder specialized in pre-purchase inspections and a timber pest inspection and management specialist. They work together as a team for determining the condition of the property
If you don’t need any building inspection, you can choose to have the house checked exclusively for termites, timber decay and borers. Our team of licensed timber pest inspectors will come on site and will provide you a detailed report after the visit.
Our inspection service thoroughly examine your home for the presence of termites, timber decay (wood rot) and borers.
After the inspections on your property have concluded we will send you a detailed building inspection report.

Even if we are talking about relatively new properties, you should be aware that any property has potential for hazards, regardless of its age.

Hire The Best Pest Inspectors
The most significant purchase most people make will be a for their own house. As a result, it is very important to do your own due diligence prior to making this important purchase. The last thing that you want to do is buy a house and then find out there is something wrong with it after you have moved in. A significant pest infestation such as having termites in the wood can be a disastrous circumstance if not caught before the property goes to closing. That is why we as pest inspectors can provide you peace of mind prior to your purchase.
Termites, A Key Problem On The Gold Coast
Termites can be a very significant problem in our area. As many as one in three houses can have a termite infestation. With those odds, you cannot afford not to get the peace of mind that comes with a timber pest inspection prior to buying a house. Even if your house has some type of protection, such as a termite barrier, you still will want to get an inspection at least once per year to make sure that the barrier has not failed.
You should know that even the warranties on most barriers require inspections every year; therefore, if you find out about the failure years later and try to make a claim on the warranty and have not complied with the yearly inspection requirement, you will quickly find out that the warranty is as good as useless.
We Provide Full Inspections
In addition to our visible inspection to see if termites are present or if there is existing visible damage from prior infestations, we also address other important issues. For example, as part of our inspection process, we inspect the drainage system around the house. This is because when wood is exposed to water it can cause decay and attract pests. Thus we identify any potential structural problems that might cause boards to be overexposed to wood and suggest ways to correct them.
Finding a good pest inspector is a must to insure the house you buy is not already infested as well as identifying any infestations in their early stages as part of an annual checkup. We have the experience and expertise to make sure that you are not caught by surprises by home wrecking pests.

Most problems that come up during such building inspections have to deal with maintenance and the fact that it has remained neglected, because the previous owner was contemplating selling the property.
The job of a certified and experienced building inspector is to look at the building right from the foundation to the roof. The size and age of the house is taken into consideration.
