Building and pest inspections could be called “peace of mind” inspections because, once the report is completed and given to the homeowner, the key issues requiring attention are immediately known. Even if some rectification work is required to restore the property to its original sound condition, the owners know that their property is safe for occupation once that work is done. If they then decide to put it on the market, the results of the report become a key part of the marketing strategy.
Existing Homes Need Inspections to Identify Problems Early
Existing homes are often forgotten as most of the emphasis is on pre-sale inspections as a means to an end. Of course, there is nothing wrong with that as it serves an immediate need. However, homeowners intending to occupy their properties for many years should also have the premises inspected.
At Bob Gunn Termite Solutions, we offer a reliable building and pest inspection service to both existing homeowners and those needing the reports to satisfy sale conditions. Our fully trained and licensed operators will check for pests such as termites in all the hard to reach areas, including the roof.
As experts in identifying the signs of pest infestations, we can find trouble spots quickly before any further damage has been done. We use specialised equipment that allow us to see problems within the walls.
It is not only bugs and vermin that can cause havoc in the unseen areas of homes like the wall cavities, ceilings and under the concrete slabs. Structural damage can also be caused by movement in the earth under the dwelling that is imperceptible to the occupiers but eventually causes cracks to develop in the slab. These are unnoticed, of course, because the concrete has been covered by tiles, carpets or other floor coverings.
Early Detection Makes Rectification Work Less Costly
It is not until a building inspection is done that these faults are known. By finding them early and having the rectification work done, the damage is minimised but leaving it until it is obvious will just cost more to fix. Not attending to it at all will eventually see the building become structurally unsound and the owners may then have to move out for a long period of time so it can be fixed.
Our inspection team can be relied upon to find and report on any issues that need attention, whether they are pests or structural problems. At Bob Gunn Termite Solutions, we have built a reputation for service, knowledge and professionalism. Every homeowner can expect all of this, and more, from our experienced operators.
