It is more important to have the house inspected before it’s five years old so that any defects can be rectified before the builders warranty expires. There is generally poor workmanship that we have detected from a building inspection with homes that are not very old and even new homes.

It can cost you thousands of dollars if termites are not detected however are present. We have the latest technology to help detect if termites are present. For an extra fee we can use our Thermal Imaging Camera during the inspection which will help guarantee if termites exist at the property.

If there was termite damage or evidence found to the house, you would need a builder to determine the damage to structural timbers to determine if the house is structurally sound and what was required to be fixed with cost of repairs.
