PRE PURCHASE PEST & TERMITE INSPECTIONS

A pre purchase termite and timber pest inspection will uncover problems before you purchase, so you don’t have to discover them the expensive way. Our inspector has helped a large number of prospective home buyers avoid making a costly mistake when buying, building or performing maintenance on a house.

We can help ensure you are fully aware of the property’s structural integrity, and you can negotiate price based on the cost of any necessary repairs.

Four reasons for an inspection:

Informed
Decision

Knowing what you are buying and any potential unforeseen costs that could arise, may affect your decision to purchase.

Professional
Advice

A Pre-Purchase Building Inspection Report will highlight any problems with the property and suggest referral to a building/engineering specialist which, without the report, you may not have considered.

Negotiation
Power

A compliant and complete Pre-Purchase Building Inspection Report may help price negotiations. Building Inspection Reports – and Pest Inspection Reports – assist in understanding any potential unforeseen costs involved in your prospective property.

Future
Planning

When considering different options, a Pre-Purchase Building Inspection on a property may determine if any issues with the property can be incorporated or addressed during renovations.

THERMAL IMAGING

Our state of the art thermal imaging services are available from the Hunter Valley through to the Central Coast, including Newcastle, Maitland and Port Stephens.

Thermal Imaging is a non-invasive method for detecting thermal signatures and providing information about buildings and the potential problems of building materials before they fail. We can provide you with a comprehensive thermal building inspection report.

Certified Pest & Building Inspection Services are one of the leading providers of thermal imaging inspections and reports in Newcastle and surrounds.

Many inspectors have purchased basic equipment and have no training in the use of thermal cameras. Interpreting thermal images isn’t as easy as you think as you need to understand the camera as well as the surface and composition of the subject and the heat levels of the local environment. This is a multifaceted process that requires training. We use high end equipment and carry the qualifications to be able to make informed decisions of what we see.

No wonder why Lawrence has such a high rating! I hired him for a property inspection. He carried out work on the second day and provided a very thorough report the same night even before sending us the invoice (thank you for the trust😃). He was also very quick replying the questions we had. Out of the several building inspections we had previous this time is definitely the most satisfied experience.

Laurence was fantastic. He made it easy to arrange an inspection and very detailed. And I must say the fact he completed the inspection in the morning then came back after I got home from work to walk me through all the areas that need work, makes me think he really cares about his work. Highly recommend before you purchase!
