A Building and Pest Inspection is an inspection which covers both building defects and timber pests. When purchasing a new home or investment property in Caboolture it is imperative to have a pre-purchase building and pest inspection, particularly because all homes are vulnerable to some form of timber pest damage and attack, as most homes contain timber elements in their construction.  

A Building & Pest Report by ASBIR is the best way to get the real facts about any building defects or other potential problems! 

ASBIR Cater For All Your Building & Pest Inspection Needs in Caboolture and Surrounding areas.

We cater for all your Caboolture building and pest inspection needs! Whether you are buying an existing home, or bidding at auction we can conduct a pre-purchase building and pest inspection and provide you with a building report and separate timber pest report so you are able to be aware of any defects or potential problems including any timber pest problems such as termite attack, prior to purchasing the property.

A pre-sale building and pest inspection report is done when you are selling your property and want to know if there are any potential problems or building defects you need to fix up before putting your house on the market.  When buying a newly built home off the plan, a pre-settlement building and pest inspection is also important.

If you are a homeowner or property investor who wants to make sure their home or investment property stays in good condition and continues to increase in value, an annual building and pest inspection is essential. We can provide just a building inspection report or a pest inspection report if you only need the one or the other, though it is always best to have your property inspected regularly for both building issues and timber pest problems, particularly termite infestation.

By having these regular building inspections and pest inspections or annual maintenance inspections you will be able to keep up with maintenance of your property, so that the value of your home or investment property can continue to grow and appreciate instead of depreciate!

Timber Pest Damage has many forms

Timber pests that can weaken timber structures include termites, wood decay fungi or wood rot, and wood borers. Timber structures such as roof frames, wall frames, decks, fences and handrails and internal timbers are just some of the timber that is at risk.
