About Us

Home inspections for timber pests are known in Sydney, Australia as a pest inspection and may also include a building report.

Other services and terms include Termite Inspections, Termite Reports, Pre-Purchase Property Inspections, or a PPI.
These involve a thorough visual inspection of the sub-floor, roof void, interior, exterior, & other areas of the property.

An average house takes anywhere from one to two hours to complete. Cost varies from $250-$550 depending on the size of the house and access. This is including G.S.T. or Goods and Services Tax (does not apply to persons who live outside Australia). We recommend that you order a thermal termite inspection if you are buying a new home or have active termites

Most of Sydney is classed as a high risk for termites. For adequate termite protection for most homes in Sydney Australia, we recommend either Termidor termite treatment or Exterra termite baits.

The report consists of eleven pages and digital photos upon request. Please remember a termite inspection report is designed to detect termites at an early stage as to reduce the amount of damage to your house. It does not stop termites. It is strongly recommended a termite inspection report is carried out at least once every twelve months and every three to six months for high risk areas.

Note: There is no household insurance that covers you for termite damage.

A termite inspection report is designed to:

  • Detect old damage and active termites
  • Gives you the element of risk of infestation
  • Gives you tips on reducing the chances of termite infestation
  • Gives us enough information to accurately quote you on a termite treatment and to use the most appropriate method
  • Most importantly, educates you about termites
  • Identifies species of termites
Equipment which may be used to detect termites include:
  • Professional Quality Torch This is always a must, and don’t let anyone attempt to inspect your house without one!
  • Moisture Meter. Moisture meters pick up high moisture content in walls and timbers which could indicate the presence of. Termites bring up moisture from the soil and into the walls and timbers.
  • Flat Head Screwdriver When termite damaged timber is located and it looks like termites are present, we use a standard flat head screwdriver & carefully lift up a sliver of timber, identifying the species of termites then seal it back up with tape so as not to disturb the termites. Thermal Imaging Camera & Termatrac Termite tracking device.
