If you’re thinking about buying a home in East Keilor, it’s important to make sure your investment is sound. A building and pest inspection before you buy can save you thousands of dollars and give you the confidence that the structure of your home is sturdy. We have the latest technology and trained technicians to inspect your home for pests as well as structural integrity.
What Does a Building Inspection Include?
Our building inspection will give you a thorough assessment of each area of your home.
We check the roof, flashing, skylight, chimney as well as all the drainage features.
We focus on areas where there are water features such as:
- Bench tops
and more to make sure your plumbing system is operating efficiently.
We ensure that the structure of your home is in good shape by checking masonry, windows, doors, cladding and your electrical system.
Termites and other pests can bring down the biggest house. We make sure they are not living in your new home.
We also give you high-quality, digital photographs of the areas we have inspected along with a written report, so you can see the actual damage or potential damage.
Thermal camera imaging is one way to see behind walls and determine if the insulation is properly installed and if there are slow water leaks that cannot be seen on the surface. Other defects that can be seen are overloaded electrical components and leaking air ducts and mechanical systems.
These defects cannot be seen during a visual inspection, but if they are detected early, they can be repaired at minimal cost to you, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in future major repairs. Our inspectors are not only trained to use the thermal imaging equipment, but are also trained to interpret what they see.
