Are you pondering buying a property in Ascot Vale?
A building and pest inspection are required by a fully licensed and insured building and pest inspection company!
We can organise your property inspection in a timely manner before your agreed term becomes unconditional. Working with BPI building and pest inspections Melbourne makes you better informed.
We conduct a full and detailed examination of your property which can take up to a couple of hours.
We recommend that you be present during the inspection as any concerns that you may have about the property can be addressed accordingly. If you can’t attend, our inspector will contact you once the building inspection concludes to discuss the results and findings.
Just like the name suggests, a building and pest inspection consist of two different inspections.
Our building specialists perform the building and pest inspection and complete a building report as well as a timber pest report.
These two reports are administered by Australian standards which regulate the way we conduct the home inspection.
Our building inspector Troy Shine is experienced, licensed and insured which means that our building inspections are thorough in accordance with Australian Standards. A primary visual inspection of all the property to include inside and outside takes place to identify any cracks, breakage or safety concerns. Property inspections will compare your property to other similar properties of the same age and building type. All differences that are not considered normal conditions will be mentioned in the report.
Timber Pest Inspection
It is of the utmost importance that the specialist who carries out the timber pest inspection has a timber pest license and is not simply a qualified builder. Everything that concerns timber and structural frames, rafters and bearers, joists and any woodwork should be thoroughly examined and reported.
Internal and external details should also be included in the report as well as the outdoor landscaping to include wood, pavers, trees and tree cuttings. The timber pest inspections will allow the specialist to forward any necessary information in the event that there is any current timber pest infestation. A timber pest inspection specialist will also report any area of the property which will require further repair. We utilise different tools to carry out property inspections to include:
- A dampness meter – termites are made up of 95% moisture.
- Borescope – will be used to see inside trees, voids and wall cavities.
- Acoustic Probes -used to locate termite activity via audio recordings.
- Thermal Imaging – the world’s most accurate termite thermal radar system
