WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

BUILDING AND PEST INSPECTION PIMPAMA

Your Building Inspector specialise in building and pest inspections for buyers and sellers. Our local Pimpama inspectors are licensed builders with at least 10 years experience, which is why we find major and minor defects that others miss. Your building and pest inspector will provide you with a thorough and easy to read report on the same day that your inspection takes place, so you have as much time as possible to make a decision on the property. They’re also happy to take you through the report over the phone, and if you’re at the inspection, they will walk you through the property and point out any issues or areas they’ve included in the report. 

We work with yourself and the agent to find a convenient time for the inspection to take place. So, when you’re ready to book simply give us a call and we will help you through the process!

WE FIND AND REPORT MAJOR & MINOR DEFECTS

The three major defect areas our experienced building and pest inspectors will look for in your Pimpama property include;

Structural Defects

Is the property structurally sound and are there any areas that are very poorly maintained or present serious safety hazards? Your Building Inspector Pimpama will use high quality photos to demonstrate the areas of concern with your report.

Water and Moisture Defects

Is there any water or moisture build up within the property? If there are signs, Your Building Inspector will use their moisture meter to take a reading and note it in your report.

Termite Defects

Is there any evidence of previous or current termite activity within the property and its surrounds? Your Building Inspector will report on any findings and use their top of the range thermal sensor to pick up on active termites within the property.

The inspector will also provide a list and photos of any minor defects they find at the property. These minor defects can include things such as; cracked tiles, broken door hinges, poorly maintained cabinetry or chipped paint. These are not areas of major concern, but could be used in negotiations when purchasing the property, and give you a thorough understanding its overall condition.

THE LATEST EQUIPMENT

Our building and pest inspectors in Pimpama are not only experienced, licensed and insured – each inspector is also equipped. Our Pimpama building inspectors carry a moisture meter, thermal sensor and access equipment to every inspection.

Moisture Meter for building inspections

Moisture Meter

The moisture meter records differential moisture levels within surfaces such as walls and floors and ceilings without needing to drill holes or cause damage. Your building 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 building and pest inspector will also use a thermal 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.

FAQ

What is a building and pest Inspection?

A building and pest inspection is undertaken prior to a buyer purchasing a property, and is generally a condition of sale. It is essential that you appoint an experienced, licensed building and pest inspector to carry out the inspection to ensure all major and minor defects are reported. The inspector will return a report on the property noting any defects found, your report will also include photos of all reported issues.

Are the inspectors licensed?

All of our building and pest inspectors are licensed builders who have been operating under that license for at least 10 years. As well as this, all of our inspectors carry pest certifications and their own insurance.

Who arranges access to the property?

We will work with your agent to arrange a time that suits all parties. Provide your agents details through the online form or over the phone and we will get in contact with them. If you have already found a time that works with your agent, that’s fantastic, let us know and we will try to accommodate the given time.

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.

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 on the same day as 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.

I have questions about my report, who do I speak to?

We encourage you to speak with the building inspector who made your booking and conducted your inspection. That way you’re dealing with the person who has first-hand knowledge of the property you’re buying. They will talk you through any sections of the report you are unsure about.
