Check Before you Buy

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you are likely to make. As a result, you want to do everything that you can to make sure that it doesn’t turn into a huge nightmare.

Pre Purchase Building Inspections

Get Brisbane Building and Pest Inspection Services in to help you make a properly informed decision. Their expert teams combine the best in modern technology and a great deal of expertise in order to thoroughly check out any property – commercial or residential.

They know where pests hide and will quickly get to the heart of problems that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Termite Damage

Termite damage is a pretty insidious problem, especially here in Australia. The main concern is that the problem only becomes evident to the layman when it is pretty far advanced.

Termites like to hide in dark places within the actual structure of your home. They are not easy to spot at all and leave very few tell-tale signs.

Advanced termite damage can be difficult and costly to repair. Generally speaking, this involves repairing the very structure of your home. A termite infestation that is advanced can be very difficult to eradicate.

Finding Termites

That’s where Brisbane Building and Pest Inspection Services come in – they have a range of equipment that allows them to almost literally see through walls into the structure of the home. Thermal scanning and Termatrac are just two of the non-invasive options used by their teams to ensure maximum termite detection.

The advantage of non-invasive methods as opposed to traditional methods of termite detection is that the termites are not disturbed in any way – traditional methods are noisy and so tend to send termites scuttling, leaving you to have to seek out their new hiding places.

A Thorough Report

You will be issued with a thorough report detailing any problems or potential problem areas discovered. The report will give suggestions on what repairs, if any, need to be done and this will put you in a better position to decide whether or not you are getting a good deal.

If the report is clear, you can continue with the purchase of the property with your mind eased. If it is not, it is up to you to decide whether or not you want to take on the necessary repairs and, if so, by what amount to reduce your offer in order to compensate for the cost of those repairs.
