Your home will likely be one of the biggest investments you make in your lifetime, which means it’s paramount you don’t let it become overridden and destroyed by pest infestations.
South-East Queensland is well known for its gorgeous architecture which often includes elements constructed from timber. While such houses look great, they can easily become vulnerable to timber pest damage and attack. One way to ensure your new or existing home is safe is by requesting a thorough pest and building inspections.
A house and pest inspection is a low cost measure you can take to protect your investment and remedy issues before they become larger concerns. They are quick, performed by qualified and experienced professionals and identify any building defects or potential problems in the property you’re thinking of purchasing.

The discerning vendor or real estate agent will ALWAYS have a pre-sale pest and building inspection report conducted prior to listing a property for sale. A pre-sale building inspection provides you with knowledge of potential problems or building defects you need to resolve before hitting the market.
A pre-sale house or commercial building and pest inspection also prevents the unwelcome surprises that can arrive once a seller enters into a contract with a potential buyer. These surprises are often accompanied by a request to reduce the contract price.
Always be prepared to achieve the highest price for your Brisbane home, whether in the northside or beyond, by having your pre-sale pest and building inspection conducted by an ASBIR technician.
After you’ve purchased your new home or investment property, it’s important to have regular house and pest inspections to help identify any damage or building defects as they occur. This will also uncover any potential timber pest such as termite borers or wet rot decay, and address such issues right away. Don’t risk leaving them only to cause bigger problems and further damage down the track when the problems are more difficult to fix.
Choosing a building and pest inspector with the experience needed to catch these problems early is important in order to ensure you don’t end up wasting money unnecessarily.
