Combined Building & Pest Inspections

Building & Timber Pest Inspections

A combined building and pest inspection is our most comprehensive inspection service and is highly recommended for all Adelaide properties to ensure both building defects and evidence of pests are identified.

All homes contain timber elements that may be vulnerable to attack from timber pests such as termites, wood borers and wood decay fungi (wood rot). All of these pests can undermine timber structures and potentially cause severe damage to your property.

A Building and Pest Inspection from Home Inspect SA is conducted by a fully accredited and experienced technician.  They utiilise the latest technology in addition to a visual inspection. For example, thermal imaging can effectively identify termites and pests nesting in walls, in between floors or other concealed areas.

What does a timber pest inspection include?

Timber Pest inspections are conducted in accordance with Australian Standard AS 4349.3-2010

The following key areas are assessed for all of our Building and Timber Pest Inspections:

  • Subterranean Termites or evidence of termite activity, and termite damage as well as evidence of any previous termite treatment.
  • Timber borers, or evidence of timber borers and damage.
  • Wood rot (wood decay fungi) damage and potential safety hazards in timber structures such as rotten timber steps, handrails and balconies.
  • We also report on any conditions that may be conducive to termite attack or conditions that can cause wood rot.

No one wants pests infesting their home, not only can it post a health and safety threat to you and your family, but it can also be very costly to repair damaged timber structures.
