Building and Pest Inspections
- Adelaide and Suburbs
At One Stop Inspections, we are pleased to be able to offer you combined building and pest inspection services. We believe that this is the best way to ensure that a building is both structurally sound and free of unwanted guests.
When you order a combined inspection, our fully certified and experienced
building and pest inspector will carry out a comprehensive inspection of your property to the highest of standards – which includes assessing it for any pest-related issues.
Our pre-purchase building and pest inspection services have proven to be very popular with our clients – however, we are equally happy to assess your property after the purchase should you require it.
Whether you are considering buying or selling, a combined building and pest inspection is simply the most cost-efficient way to perform a comprehensive check of any property.
Why book a pre-purchase building and pest inspection?
So, it is hard to overestimate the importance of engaging a fully qualified and experienced building inspector who can conduct the full check up of a property before you decide to go ahead with the purchase.
Combining a pre-purchase building inspection with a pest inspection also makes perfect sense. As a potential buyer, you need to be aware of the extent to which any pests are present at the property – and of any serious damage caused by them.
This information can be essential when making the decision on whether to proceed with the purchase, while also helping you determine your best bargaining strategy.
We also understand that, in today’s competitive property market, time is of the essence. This is why we offer you a guarantee that you’ll receive your comprehensive building and pest inspection report from us on the day of your inspection.
Your report will contain detailed information about crucial aspects affecting the structural soundness of the inspected building, as well as its overall condition. Any pest-related issues identified during the inspection will also be detailed and listed.
What does a building and pest inspection include?
Your inspector will check multiple areas of the building that are easily accessible for inspection, providing insights into its structural condition. Many of these areas can also serve as potential entry points for pests.
The areas that we check include the foundation, exterior and interior walls, floor and subfloor, roof exterior and void, timber structures (such as doors and window frames), and non-structural retaining walls. We’ll also inspect the bathroom, toilet, and laundry. Outside of the building, we examine paths, driveways, and fencing – as well as such outdoor structures as sheds, carports, garages, or pergolas.
Any plumbing and drainage issues that can contribute to excessive moisture – and, potentially, to soil movement that could compromise the building’s structural integrity – will also be investigated. Additionally, we’ll assess the electrical systems installed in the building to ensure their compliance with the current Australian Standards.
We will also conduct a thorough examination of your property for any signs of damage caused by pests or their presence. We will not only look for termites – but also for such common pests rodents, borers, cockroaches, spiders, and ants. The latest in thermal imaging technology will be used by our inspector to help identify any infestation points and hidden termite nests. Your inspection report will include a detailed section outlining any identified pests along with their activity levels and damage observed.
Our combined building and pest inspection service is the ultimate cost-efficient option to get a comprehensive property inspection and ensure that you avoid any nasty surprises. (We also offer standard building inspections that do not include checking your property for pests and termites.)
