Timber Pest Inspections

Why Is A Timber Pest Inspection Important?

A pre-purchase timber pest inspection helps identify defects caused by timber pests, like termites, borers and wood-rotting fungi, before purchasing a property – allowing potential buyers to make informed decisions about its condition. The inspection can also help identify areas of the house vulnerable to termite infestations and guide on reducing the probability of these pests invading the structure.

How We Save You Money:

By identifying defects earlier, a pre-purchase inspection can save property owners thousands of dollars in future repairs and pest control treatments. In some cases, they may even be able to renegotiate the purchase price. Each Timber Pest investigation carefully follows the Australian Standard, as this is the usual practice for all our inspectors. They are trained professionally to detect what most would not be able to see, call us today to see how we can help you.
