Martin: Brisbane West Building & Pest Inspector

Your local inspector for the Western suburbs of Brisbane and Forest Lake area is Martin, servicing all West Brisbane suburbs including Auchenflower, Ferny Grove, Springfield Lakes, Goodna and Chapel Hill. He has been with Inspect My Home for 15 years and has carried out more than 9,000 building and pest inspections in that time.

Prior to joining the company, Martin had been working within the building industry for 35 years. Martin is a licensed building and pest inspector and can also conduct commercial Asbestos Audits. His vast experience and knowledge is a real asset to Inspect My Home and our clients. Martin has called Brisbane home since shifting from Melbourne some 15 years ago. 

During your property inspection, Martin will thoroughly check the property for termites and pests, any termite damage and other structural damage or defects on both the interior and exterior of the building. Our easy to follow report will include a description of the property, materials used in construction, plus any points of interest the inspector noticed and will be available within 24 hours of your inspection. 

In this article, Martin explains the importance of regular inspections and some of the worst findings uncovered during inspections around Brisbane.
