Timber Pest Inspections

Timber Pest Inspections

Timber Pest Inspections

Timber pests and termites are silent attackers and cause significant damage to properties all across Melbourne and Victoria. A timber pest inspection is a vital part of any building inspection service. We physically test all timbers in the building for termites, borers, wood rots and fungal decays, as well as the detection of live termite activity, water leaks and dampness.Due to the severe issues termites can cause, these reports are considered vital in most parts of Victoria.

Dilapidation Reports

Dilapidation Reports

Dilapidation Reports

Dilapidations reports provide landowners and contractors protection over fraudulent claims of defects and compensation when developing properties. Also, most councils require the reports covering footpaths, road conditions, and curbs in order to approve developments. It is particularly important to organise a dilapidation report if you share common walls or structures with a neighbour.

To confirm whether or not your construction, excavation or demolition work caused any damage to nearby properties, you need one of our comprehensive dilapidation reports and protect yourself against potential lawsuits.
