Building and Pest Inspections During Construction at Various Building Stages
When building a new home or investment property in Brisbane, there are many points during the building phase when you will need to bring in experts to carry out independent building inspection and pest inspections for you. Right from the pre-building phase, right from the foundations and slab, all the way through to practical completion or handover you will want to assess the work done to ensure everything is of the highest possible standard of workmanship with only the best quality of materials being used.
You will also want to ensure any termite barriers or pest treatments have been installed correctly and are not compromised during construction so as to protect your property from termite attack.
