A professional Timber Pest Inspector has done hours if not years in the field and works with Termites and Pests on a daily basis. They are the expert in their field.Your professional Timber Pest Inspector should be able to do more than just an ‘inspection’.
Building & Pest Inspections – In the industry at the moment, qualified builders are able to obtain a pest certificate and class themselves as a Building & Pest Inspector. It’s important to remember that these are two specialised, separate fields that require study and years of field work to hone the skill set & eyes for the job.
It adds value for you, the customer, if they can also provide you with on going pest services such as; invasive inspections, termite treatments, preventive systems (barriers), yearly termite inspections and pest control for Cockroaches, Ants, Silverfish, Spiders & Rodent control. This is so important if your home purchase is successful. You don’t want to have to start over and find someone new again.Build your relationship from the beginning with your Termite & Pest Management Specialist. They will look after you from pre-purchase to yearly home pest services and you know you can trust them to have your home and families best interests at heart.
The right devices for a Pest Inspection is also important. As a specialist in our field we always have on hand our tapper, head torch, torch, moisture meter & Termatrac Device. The Termatrac T3i is the World number 1 in termite detection and can save you thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. Make sure your inspector has one when attending your Pre-purchase Inspection.
When buying a home, two sets of eyes are better than one. Both Building Inspector and Pest Inspector are providing a different specialised service and therefore looking at different aspects of the home when they walk around together as a team. Two sets of eyes will always trump one.
It’s better value for money too, as it equates to approximately 3 hours of specialised service time by both inspectors (1.5hrs each). You will also receive two separate reports; one from Building Inspector and one form Pest Inspector. Having a separate Building Inspector & separate Pest Inspector; each providing a separate report to you, can often work out cheaper than hiring a single combined inspector!
We only work with quality independent Building Inspectors and treat your potential home like our own. We work for you, the buyer and welcome you to be there on the day of Pre-purchase inspection. It’s a great opportunity to meet your Building and Pest Inspector’s and ask any questions you may have in person about the property.
Oh! and don’t worry about organising! We arrange a time that suits you best with the Agent and Building Inspector, so everything runs smoothly on the day. We take the stress out of organising, so you can focus on buying the home of your dreams.
TIP 1: Ask “Do you work with an independent Pest Inspector or Building Inspector?”
TIP 2: Ask “Do you provide two separate reports?”
TIP 3: Ask “How long does it take for you to inspect the home?”
TIP 4: Ask “Do you use a Termatrac Device?”
TIP 5: Ask “Are you a qualified Pest Controller, specialising in both ongoing Pest & Termite Management?”
