We recommend a Pest Inspection be carried out on every home purchased, no matter whether it's new or old. Pest inspections should be done well before auction or before your cooling off period ends. It will give you a clear indication of current and past activity on the property. It may help with your negotiations. It can also save you a lot of time, money and stress in the future.
Termites and borers are secretive creatures, they enter homes often via the sub floor area or concealed slab edges. Once inside the property they can cause extensive damage to structural timbers as well as architraves, doors and cabinetry, we have found termites on the 3rd floor of a block of units in the kitchen cupboards. Brick and concrete buildings are not exempt from termite entry and attack.
Yearly timber pest inspections carried out by a qualified inspector are considered to be essential; termites can cause extensive structural damage to a property in a short period of time.
Our Pest inspectors are experienced and qualified with over 20 years experience in the industry.
