What is a Building and Pest Inspection?

A building and pest inspection is a  full examination of the prospective property to determine its condition, whether it has any damage or if there are unwanted pests lurking around. To ensure the right advice is provided, n inspector must hold a valid license from the QBCC.

What Happens During an Inspection?

At Building and Pest Inspections Sunshine Coast North, we make sure we cover the entire property for you. Here is what you can expect during an inspection;

  • The inspector will look through the whole house, from underneath to the roof including the roof cavity (where accessible).
  • We will also look around the outside of the property including the fence line to check for further damage or pests.
  • We use technology like moisture meters and thermal imaging to detect moisture, wood rot, termite damage etc.

What is the Inspector Looking for?

  • Defects and/or water leaks.
  • Making sure doors and windows function properly.
  • Damage to plaster and paint.
  • Condition of gates and fences.
  • Roof condition.
  • Any other damages that affect the condition of the home.

Following our inspection, we will provide you with a computer-generated report detailing the condition of the property and identifying any issues. Knowledge is power when buying a house so the information used from the report can either deter you from buying a property or help as a bargaining tool when negotiating price.
