Make Sure That New Melbourne Building is Structurally Sound with Pre Purchase Timber Pest Inspections
Whether you’re a landlord or a commercial property owner, there’s no bigger headache than finding out that property you’ve recently purchased has a pest problem. When it comes to the structure of a building, one of the worst things you can find is that your building has damage due to a timber pest infestation. If you’re unfamiliar with timber pests, they are various wood-damaging pests such as termites and fungal decay that eat away at your building’s wood, compromising its structure. Because buildings can have so many critical parts made of timber – flooring, roofing, stairs – these pests can cause enough structural damage to make your building unsafe for habitation.
The best thing you can do, as a property buyer, is to have a professional company do a pre purchase pest inspection on any Melbourne building you’re interested in buying. Investing in property is a fantastic use of your time and money, but only if you know exactly what you’re getting out of that investment. At Resicert, our team of inspectors can provide thorough, comprehensive building inspections before you hand a check over to a property seller. We’ll inspect the building’s structure and search for signs of timber pests that could cause you problems in the future.
What Happens During a Timber Pest Inspections of Melbourne Property
Proper pest inspections on any Melbourne building is recommended before purchase. As professional inspectors, we know what to look for when it comes to signs of timber pests or structural damage. You may look at a building during a walkthrough and think that it’s structurally sound. Your real estate agent or the building’s seller may think the same thing, but there are often signs of pest damage that you and the sellers won’t notice. Our job is to come into the building and thoroughly inspect the entire property, searching for signs of termites or fungal decay.
During our building and pest inspections of Melbourne properties, we look for any signs of termites, decay, or borers that have affected the structure of the building. Our qualified technicians know the signs of termites, even though they are almost invisible. We’ll find any damage that they cause by inspecting the building’s wood materials and out of sight areas. Because termites and pests tend to avoid open air and light, you’ll probably never see the signs. That’s why it’s so important to call upon us to handle these pre purchase timber pest inspections before you buy the property.
