Comprehensive pests and building inspections
The purpose of the building inspection is to know what your buying and where you stand. After all, it is your right. The building inspection can also determine inadequate or substandard workmanship. Pre-purchase inspections are carried on properties of any age. Defects are found on most properties. The significance of the defects are assessed to qualify their impact on you. In maintaining the quality of the inspection and report, Australian Standard AS4349.1 is used as the minimum requirement. The inspection is a visual examination of the accessible physical structures and systems of the property.
South Coast Home Check is not involved with the physical eradication/treatment of structural timber pests, but will bring attention to the present, past and/or the potential existence of structural timber pests such as termites (all species), Carpenter ants, beetles (such as Powderpost, Furniture and Ambrosia), wood decay fungus and chemical delighnification. Nuisance and public health pests are only commented on if the need exists.
