Building & Pest Inspections - Sunshine Coast

Pre-Purchase Pest & Building Inspections.

Buying a home is a major investment – probably the largest single investment many people will make.  So it’s essential to know what you are buying.  We will report on all areas to your home sub-floor, roof void, internal rooms and areas within 50 metres of the dwelling or within the boundary lines.  If there is an outdated or breach of current barriers/treatments, our inspections could save you 1000’s of dollars.

We will report on defects such as:

  • Termite activity past or present.
  • Past termite treatments where evidence or paperwork is provided.
  • Borer damage to dry seasoned timbers.
  • Significant decay.
  • Poor sub-floor ventilation.
  • Recommendations to help prevent future termite attack or infestation.
  • Any outdated or breached current barrier/treatment systems.

Only a small number of inspection companies in Australia use thermal imaging technology due to the high cost of the units, however after discovering many hidden termite nests we believe its worth the cost.  The Cockyman Pest Control and Carpet Cleaning are fully trained and Termatrac Certified Technicians.

We recommend a pest inspection be carried out in conjunction with a building inspection so any termite damage that is detected by the pest inspector can be checked by the builder to determine if repairs are required.

A combined Building and Pest Inspection is carried out by two individual inspectors attending the property where possible at the same time.

We work in conjunction with Flood Family Homes who have had 30 years building experience and is fully accredited and insured.

Sellers who are auctioning their homes also find it extremely useful and a good selling tool to have current building and pest inspection reports available to prospective bidders before and on the day of auction.
