Pre-purchase termite inspections

pre purchase termite inspections

We specialise in termite inspections and termite control. A pre-purchase termite inspection is one of the most important inspections to be carried out before settling on your property. But it's a step many choose to leave out and, unfortunately, this often becomes a very costly decision. Australian research suggests that the average cost to prepare termite damage in a single house is more than $7000, compared with just a few hundred dollars for a termite inspection.

 

What does a pre-purchase pest inspection involve?

A pre-purchase pest inspection involves a very thorough inspection both inside (including the roof space) and outside the property. A number of techniques are used to detect a termite infestation, including equipment that detects movement and moisture changes in the walls. The pre-purchase inspection also covers borers, fungal decay and conditions conducive to timber pest attack e.g high moisture, timber in direct contact with the ground, poor drainage and leaking plumbing.
