Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspection

A Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspection is the most important inspection to do when you buy a house, villa or unit. If termites get a hold of a home’s foundation, they slowly eat it away from the inside out!

Evidence of termites often cannot be seen on the outside of walls, timber skirtings and more besides. Because of this, you need to get expert pest inspectors that have the equipment and expertise to find and identify termite infestations throughout a buildings structure (including the interior wall frames).

The purchase of a home is usually the single largest investment you and your loved one’s will make in a lifetime, therefore you need to be sure that you don’t buy a termite infested home!

You can protect your investment in a home with an essential Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspection.
Termites are the cause of a lot of property damage issues along with health issues!

We are termite control experts, along with our timber inspection and reporting qualifications. If you see one termite, you can assure that there are plenty more already in the wood of a home that you cannot see.

We have all heard stories when people buy a property without a Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspection, only to find severe damage shortly after they have moved in. Because this almost always amounts to a large repair bill and/or reduced value in your investment, you don’t want this to be your story!
