What does a building and pest inspection entail?
Usually, a building and pest inspection is conducted simultaneously. That said, the two are very different things. Let’s take a look at what differentiates the two:
- A building inspection involves a complete inspection of all accessible portions of the home that entails the building interior, exterior, roof area, overall site, under floor space as well as the roof exterior. The building inspector will check if there are problems with the asbestos, whether the property has an operable smoke alarm and whether there is an electrical safety switch.
- Our building inspection reports will list minor problems in the house, but an estimated cost of fixing is not a part of it. Importantly, a building inspection will not involve the detection of pests and termites. For that, you need a pest and termite inspection.
- Our Newtown pest and termite inspector will conduct a visual inspection of pests and termites on all accessible areas of the house; these include roof cavities as well as subfloor areas. The inspector will not only look for active termites but also note any termite damage.

How long will it take to do a pest and termite inspection?
On an average, a thorough inspection takes about an hour. But this time varies depending on the size of the property, the overall condition, clutter or items that need to be moved within the building or property.
All observations made by our inspectors will be noted in the report. The cost of a thorough pest inspection varies depending upon the area and the comprehensiveness of the report. The standard inspections have a base cost, but you could ask for a more customised report with specific inclusions at an additional cost.
