Why a building and pest inspection on the Gold Coast is so important

Thermal building inspection Gold Coast

Would you invest your life savings into a house knowing it had major problems?

Obtaining a building and pest inspection on the Gold Coast prior to buying a property should be the most important step of the contract. Statistics are that termites effect one in three houses on the Gold Coast and as a result, this is a major financial headache for homeowners.

The main reasons for this statistic on the Gold Coast or south east Queensland is the building and slab designs and the use of untreated timbers. But not to mention the high-risk locations with no or inadequate termite protection and also conducive conditions such as poor maintenance.

Obtaining a pest inspection is essential. It will identify not only termite activity but any potential issues and provide professional advice on how to manage conducive conditions for termite activity or procedures for ongoing maintenance to prevent a termite attack. There is no home and contents insurance cover that covers termite attacks. Thus the main reason you need to make sure a full timber pest inspection is carried out on the property you are looking to purchase not just an annual termite inspection. But a termite inspection by itself only covers half the risk factors for timber in a home.

Why both building and pest inspections are important

It is also additionally important to obtain a building inspection on the Gold Coast.

The other issues apart from termites that can devalue a property are poor quality workmanship. Such as Cracking to masonry and structural elements or safety issues including asbestos. Insufficient building supports and also timber decay rust and moisture.

Another common issue with Gold Coast houses that can cause a purchaser grief are non-council approved attachments and renovations.

Fortunately, only a small percentage of properties for sale on the Gold Coast may have termite activity or major building issues. The type of home varies from location to the next. Thus carrying out a building and pest inspection will ensure that you have identified any risks and you will have peace of mind knowing you’re investing your money in a property without any hassles.

Some common asked questions for building and pest inspection Gold Coast

Do you provide experienced staff and is your company licensed? 

Yes, when booking the service building and pest inspection Gold Coast with East Coast building and pest we provide a two-man team. A licensed timber pest technician who has had years of experience dealing and treating termites and timber pests and also at the same time a licensed and qualified builder. Both inspectors and our company are insured and QBCC licensed. But you can do the QBCC search here if you are unsure if the company you wish to use is adequately licensed.Building and pest inspection Gold Coast

Take note: They should have both termite and a completed residential building license.

How long will it take to get a copy of the report?

Not long at all. We will send two digital photographic reports produced same day straight after the inspection and the reports will be emailed to you via pdf document.

What does an inspection cost for a two-man team?

Our inspections start at $460 combined for a unit, from $520 for a townhouse and from $550 for a house. But, we provide a two-man Gold Coast building and pest inspection team ‘two pairs of eyes are better than one’. Both our inspectors are experienced in their own field. Common issues arise with one man operators as it can be difficult to identify issues of both fields at the same time. Ask the question. Is the building inspector termite qualified and more importantly have they ever treated or dealt with termites? This is in our eyes essential that an inspector has learnt the ecology of each species of termite. Also, the other question to ask is do the cheaper inspectors carry the right equipment to inspect for timber pests? for example the Termatrac T3i in addition to thermal imaging.

Can I come to the inspection?

Yes of course. We prefer you to be onsite so we can discuss the inspection first hand once we are finished inspecting. Reports can be hard to read. Thus, being onsite with our inspectors means we can explain the pre-purchase inspection face to face.

More about the Termatrac t3i termite radar

The Termatrac T3i is the world’s number one termite detection device and we are accredited to use it. Better than thermal for detecting termite movement. This instrument can penetrate into the wall cavity and will indicate to the pest inspector movement as opposed to moisture

Termatrac T3i All Sensor incorporates 3 technologies in to one hand-held device that is non-invasive and easy to use. The 3 sensors Radar, moisture and thermal have been designed to help operators to locate or confirm and track presence and the extent of termite activity. With all 3 sensors in one hand held device. Pest control operators can confirm movement and extent of activity with the radar sensor, detect moisture differential and thermal abnormalities. Also all sensors are simple and easy to use with pinpoint accuracy.

New Australian standards require inspectors to carry a tool that can carry out additional tests in this instance. Thus, If you are engaging a company to carry out an inspection on the Gold Coast. Ensure they carry the right tools and also ask if they have had the training to use them!

Notably, This is why we use this radar on every inspection.
