Home Inspection Sunshine Coast

We highly recommend anyone looking to purchase a home, organises a pest and building inspection as part of their contract.

Inspections can uncover any building or structural damage or even problems arising from termites or insects.

For example, we discovered extensive damage to the floor and framing in the subfloor of this home during a pre-purchase building inspection on the Sunshine Coast. Some support stumps had been replaced with temporary and unsafe posts. The interior floor coverings were concealing the serious and unsafe condition of the support structure below.

Tools we use during Inspections

We use a number of devices to search for potential issues and to assist in detecting the presence of any unwanted pests during our inspections, such as termites, borers and wood decaying fungi.

  • Probe/Tapping Device: The probe is used to tap the architraves, skirtings, window reveals and frames, door jams and other timbers for termite damage.
  • Moisture Meter: Termites live in a high moisture environment so a moisture meter can pick up termite activity.
  • Thermal Imaging Camera: These are used to scan the walls for “hot” or “cold” spots. The camera measures the surface temperature of materials and displays that temperature on the screen as variations of black (cold) and white (hot) we can also use colour rather than black & white.
    Termite nests, for instance, will usually be hotter than a surface and may show up as a “white” or “hot spot”, while wet areas, such as a roof or shower leak may show up as “black” or “cold” spots.

We use the camera as part of our inspections as an added service. The Thermal Scan is not part of the Australian Standard but it is a worthwhile extra for peace of mind.

Once any problems are identified, we can also help with plans so you can prevent future attack and ensure that your home or investment is secure.
