A combined building and pest inspection is our most comprehensive inspection service and is highly recommended for properties in Melbourne as it covers both building defects and timber pests.
Recent reports have shown that timber pests are becoming a major problem in Melbourne; statistics show that one in five homes in Melbourne has suffered termite damage.
Nearly all homes have timber elements in their construction and are therefore at risk of a termite intrusion. Timber pests can include termites, wood decay fungi (‘wood rot’) and wood borers. They can weaken roof frames, wall frames, decks and handrails, making it essential that they be stopped before they cause major and expensive damage.
