Moisture Meter for building inspections

Moisture Meter

The moisture meter records differential moisture levels within surfaces such as walls and floors without the need to make holes or damage the property. Your  inspector will use this meter if there is visual evidence of moisture damage within the property. The moisture meter also identifies termite risk areas by reading the concentrated presence of moisture within the surfaces of the property.

Thermal Imaging for building inspections

Thermal Sensor

Your inspector will use a thermal imaging sensor within your inspection if visual evidence of termite activity is discovered. This thermal imaging device identifies heat sources generated by termites within building surfaces and helps to trace the termite nest and entry points in the building.

Your inspector will report on any visible cracks or movement within the property and the surrounding land.

The report may be used as evidence by the contractor if a dispute arises between any property owner claiming that the works have resulted in damage to their adjoining property.

Additionally, property owners also like to undertake an Existing Building Condition Report to determine if any new demolition or construction works have resulted in any property damage that wasn’t there prior.

What is a Building Inspection?

A building inspection is undertaken prior to a buyer purchasing a property. It is essential that you appoint an experienced, licensed building inspector to carry out the inspection to ensure all major and minor defects are reported. To learn more about building inspections and other property inspections go to our services.

Are the inspectors licensed?

All of our inspectors are licensed builders who have been operating under that license for at least 5 years. As well as this, all of our inspectors carry pest certifications and their own insurance.

Can I be present at the inspection?

We welcome owners and buyers to be present at the time of inspection, although we ask that you leave the inspector to carry out their inspection and wait to ask your questions at the end. This allows the inspector to concentrate solely on assessing the property to deliver a non-bias report.

Who arranges access to the property?

We ask that you arrange the property to be accessible at the agreed inspection time. We are able to keep our costs down by having minimal time spent on administration.

How long does the inspection take?

A typical combined building and pest inspection will take between one to two hours.

When will I receive my report?

You will receive your report within 24 hours of your inspection. Please note that payment must be received prior to the report being sent.

What equipment is used by the inspector?

Your Inspector will carry a ladder, torch, moisture meter and thermal sensor to your inspection. Please be aware that the moisture meter is only used when visual evidence of moisture is identified by your inspector. The same protocol is followed for the use of the thermal sensor, which is also only required when visual evidence of pest activity is identified.
