What's Included in a Pre-Purchase Building & Pest Inspection

Damian, your licenced building and pest inspector for Ipswich, is a trained professional with decades of experience in the building industry.

Damian will check all accessible areas of the property, with a visual inspection of the roof exterior and roof void, sub floor (if accessible), interior and exterior walls, carports, sheds, fences and garages, and more. We don't check plumbing or electrical issues nor do we check if appliances are working. 

The building inspection process will take approximately 1-2 hours with your report emailed through to you within 24 hours of the inspection.

Find out what's not included in a build and pest inspection.

The Building Inspection Component

While the property might look great on the surface, it's essential to get a second opinion from a qualified building inspector.

A trained building inspection expert can spot real problems and potential ones that could be expensive to fix. They'll keep an eye out for issues and make sure the seller isn't hiding any damage.

The inspector will come prepared with all of the necessary tools and equipment to check for visible defects. If needed, your inspector can use radar and thermal equipment to look inside walls and hidden spaces.

The Pest Inspection Component

Termites are a common problem affecting homeowners in Queensland. The statistics say that termites impact 1 in every 4 homes during the lifetime of the property.

Our inspectors use advanced technology designed to find evidence of pests without causing physical damage to your property.

Using a mixture of expert knowledge as well as moisture detection, thermal, and radar tools, your inspector can peer into walls, ceilings, and floors without causing any damage to your prospective property.

The Report

Our pre-purchase building and pest reports are prepared in accordance with Australian Standards (AS 4349.1-2007 and AS 4349.3)

If any issues that could potentially compromise the property are found, the report can be used as evidence to either exit your contract or strengthen your negotiating position.

Our reports are written in plain english, contain photos and you can always give your inspector a call to answer any questions you may have.

Damian: Ipswich Building & Pest Inspector

Damian is your local Ipswich building inspector with over 20 years of experience within the local building industry. His previous career has provided him with intimate knowledge of the various types of properties found in and around the Gold CoastBrisbane and Ipswich regions.

Having completed many inspections during his time with Inspect My Home, Damian conducts both building inspections and timber pest inspections to the highest of standards, so his clients can make an informed decision about their next property transaction. 

Properties In Ipswich, QLD

The City of Ipswich is located west of Brisbane and has experienced a recent property boom due to its affordability and slower-paced lifestyle. With a mix of older Queenslander-style homes and cottages and brand new housing estates, Ipswich has been a popular choice for families and has a large number of defence-force personnel relocating to the area. 

Ipswich is an old city with rich history. Driving around you will notice many beautiful historical buildings still being utilised today. With so many older homes, its imperative you seek independent advice from a building inspector to ensure structural integrity, the extent of any repairs that may be needed and also the presence of asbestos. 

Timber pests are another important consideration as Ipswich is home to a hot and humid climate. Our licenced timber pest technicians will conduct a thorough termite inspection of the property to check for any existing or past termite activity using advanced thermal imaging, moisture meters and termite detection equipment, and can advise on a termite protection plan if the property doesn't already have one.

Sitting along the Bremer River, some suburbs are prone to flooding and many homes have been inundated following heavy rain events. While extensive repairs may have taken place, its imperative to have a professional building inspector check the property for any hidden damp or mould issues, or structural damage such as timber decay as a result of flooding and high moisture levels.
