What's involved in a Combined Building Inspection

Our Combined Building Inspection combines our Structural Inspections with our Termite Pest Inspection. Together these two inspections will give you peace of mind before you purchase an investment property, a forever home, or embark on any major renovations.

Our inspector will visit your property once to conduct a thorough inspection of the structural integrity of the building as well as inspect the property for signs of live termites or existing termite damage.

Our Combined Building Inspection will verify the condition of the following, subject to reasonable access:
  • Roof frame
  • Subfloor structures
  • External site timbers
  • Load bearing walls
  • Concrete slab/footings
  • Moisture testing
  • Pergola
  • Safety hazards
