Building & Pest Inspections Adelaide

High risk of termite attack

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
  • Poor external drainage or storm-water concerns
  • Main structural elements
  • Water hammer or poor water pressure
  • Leaking hot water units
  • Subfloor ventilation
  • Bouncy or uneven floors
  • Non compliant down lights
  • Brick & mortar deterioration
  • Damp issues such as rising damp or penetrating damp
  • Salt damp
  • Potential Fire Hazards
  • Termite infestation
  • Damaged roof sheets or tiles
  • Safety switches
  • Smoke detectors
  • Defective gutters
  • Active water leaks
  • Damp proof course
  • Potential safety hazards such as collapsing balconies
  • Decayed boundary fences
  • Tree root damage
  • Subsiding foundations
  • And much more

What our clients say about us

“Thanks for the reports. We hadn’t noticed the uneven floors and never imagined what could be (or not be!) under the house. I will be in contact again soon for another inspection. By the way, as suggested I’ve just liked your company on Facebook.”
