Q. Can i be present at the property during the inspection?
Yes. You can be present on the day of the inspections. If you would like to attend, we recommend if possible not to follow or disrupt the inspector while he conducts the inspection. The inspection is a very complex process. Any distractions while the inspector is conducting the inspection could potentially cause the inspector to over look critical defects.
If you would like to be present we suggest you address the inspector on any concerns you may have prior to the commencement of the inspection. Should the inspector find any significant defects while in the process of the inspection, he will call you in and show you his findings. Once the inspection is completed the inspector will give you his opinion on the condition of the property, and point out any items of concern.You will also be provided with a complete written report on the same day via email.
If you cannot be present on the day of the inspection our inspector will communicate with you via phone prior to and after he's conducted your inspections. You will also be emailed a full written report that same day. We will give you a complete overview and also show you what to look out for in years to come.
Our customers appreciate having our inspectors talk them through any faults direct and in-person, with recommendations for any repairs. We also provide FREE ongoing support and advice for life. Any time just call Geoff and take advantage of his wealth of building experiance.
Q. I'm buying a brick house on a concrete slab, do i still need a pest inspection?
Yes. Termites or wood borer needs a gap less than 2mm to find its way through eaves, ventilation holes, ageing mortar or a drainpipe connection to cause lasting and expensive damage to your internal walls. Our timber pest inspection will identify areas in the fencing and trees on the property that could be fertile nesting and breeding areas for termites and wood borers.
