Building inspections in Newcastle
Whether you are buying a new home or selling an old one, the building will need to be inspected. We offer comprehensive building inspections and reports for a wide range of different scenarios.
Pre-purchase building inspections and reports — Our inspection and building reports are the best way to ensure that your dream home doesn’t have hidden faults that could cost you money in the long run. It is important that you understand what you’re really buying.
Pre-auction building inspections and reports — Before putting a bid on a house at auction, we highly recommend completing a building inspection first. The result will help you make an informed decision about the real value of the house and save a lot of time and stress on the auction day.
Vendor building inspections and reports — If you are planning to put your home on the market (either via the normal sales process or an auction), a vendor building inspection is required first. From this report, you will know what needs to be addressed and repaired before your home can be put up for sale. Once the repairs have been completed, we will complete a secondary inspection and deliver a report that can be shared with prospective buyers.
Practical completion inspections and reports — If your new home has just finished being built, we recommend booking a practical completion inspection prior to handover with our building inspectors in Newcastle. Your home is still within its five-year warranty — our team will ensure that all work has been completed to an acceptable standard and then provide a report that you can take to your builder for remedial work.

Subterranean termites, wood borers and fungal decay can cause a significant amount of damage to residential properties throughout mainland Australia.
Termites tend to enter the home and start eating the structural timber, gradually impacting the stability and integrity of thousands of homes throughout Australia.
A pre-purchase termite and timber pest inspection will uncover the damage before purchasing a new home so you don’t make an expensive mistake. Our team will look for traces of an existing infestation as well as conductive conditions within the house so you can make an informed decision and negotiate a price based on the cost of necessary repairs.

Thermal imaging is a non-invasive method of detecting thermal signatures and providing more information about buildings and potential material problems before it fails. Some building inspectors in Newcastle have purchased basic equipment but have no training in the use of thermal cameras — interpreting thermal images isn’t as simple as it looks. It is a multifaceted process that requires training.
At Certified Pest & Building Inspection Services, we use high-end equipment and carry the qualifications to make informed decisions about what we see. Using thermal imaging, we can detect faults including:
Electrical faults and energy losses
Missing or damaged wall framing
Rising damp/salt damp
Moisture ingress and mould
Plumbing and roof leaks
Pest detection/termite nests

We will contact the real estate agent on your behalf to confirm the inspection time and organise access to the property. You will then be notified of the confirmed inspection time.

We will send a detailed report via email on the same day as the inspection. If you weren’t able to make the inspection in person, you are welcome to call us at 0401 636 666 so we can explain the report in more detail. We will provide photos of all internal areas, external areas, roof coverings, roof cavities, sub-floor and any other areas of concern that you shared with us in our initial call.
