A Pest Inspection for the purpose of buying or selling a property is a non invasive inspection of all visible areas and timbers focusing on termites (White ants), borers of dry seasoned timber, fungal decay (wood rot) and conducive conditions (things that make the property more attractive to timber pests).
A Pest Inspection from our qualified inspectors covers all accessible areas including:
- Roofing timbers.
- Internal areas (skirtings, door frames, timber window frames etc).
- Under floor areas (where an accessible sub floor is present).
- Garaging (all accessible areas within the garage).
- External areas (fences, trees, landscaping, external timbers around the building).
- Outbuildings (other building’s on the property such as sheds, workshops etc).
Report Master’s Pest Inspectors will provide a report complying with the Australian Standard 4349.3 in an easy to read format including colour photographs of any relevant finding so you can see what the inspector is describing.
