Timber pest inspection reports in Sydney
Termites are a huge problem in Sydney, so you need a thorough pest inspection before you commit to purchasing any property. Our timber pest inspection reports in Sydney include an extensive analysis of the interior and the exterior of the building, including the fences and any non-structural retaining walls.
We look for both prior damage and current activity or evidence of timber pests damage:
- Subterranean termites.
- Dampwood termites.
- Wood decay Fungi.
- Wood borers.
We also check the subfloor ventilation and any termite prevention methods that have been previously put in place, possibly during construction or post construction. We can suggest methods to both protect the building from termite damage in the future and any remedial strategies that might be required, because of current or previous damage.
Building inspection reports are suitable for residential units, apartments, town houses and villas or commercial buildings that are part of an overall complex. This is because a Building Inspection only covers the building, not the grounds, fences or other structures on the property.
Many residential home owners and business owners who purchase buildings that are not stand-alone, forget to consider a building inspection before purchasing the building. This can be a costly mistake, leading to large repair bills in the future, even if these costs are spread across a number of different owners. Certain defects in one townhouse or unit are typically found in a number if not all of the houses or units throughout the complex.
A building report can save you this angst and make you fully aware of any existing or potential problems, which may cost you money in the future.
Property inspection reports in Sydney
A property inspection report covers both the building and any other structures on the property, up to the boundary line or 30 metres from the building (whichever is nearer). So this type of inspection is suitable for stand-alone residential or commercial properties and includes any fences and non-structural retaining walls, as well as trees and other timber structures on the property.
Obtaining a property inspection before you sign on the dotted line is a very effective insurance policy against future costly repairs that can cause you financial hardship, because you were unaware of them when you made the purchase.
