Building & Pest Inspection

A Combined Building and Pest inspection is our most comprehensive inspection service and is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for Adelaide properties as it covers both building defects and timber pests. You may not think timber pests are a problem in Adelaide. Think again.

All homes contain timber elements in their construction and are at HIGH RISK of termite attack. Timber Pest include Termites, Wood Decay Fungi (Wood rot) and Wood Borers. They can weaken timber structures such as roof frames, wall and floor frames, decks, handrails, external steps and timber retaining walls.

During a Combined Building and Pest Inspection we look for major and minor building defects such as:

  • Leaking roofs or damaged roof plumbing
  • Structural cracks or timber framing inadequacies
  • Leaking showers or baths / wet areas
  • Damp issues such as rising damp or penetrating damp
  • Poor external drainage or storm-water concerns
  • Main structural elements
  • Water hammer or poor water pressure
  • Potential safety hazards such as collapsing balconies
  • Potential Fire Hazards
  • Termite infestation
  • Damaged roof sheets or tiles
