It’s not uncommon for new houses and renovations to be completed with defects.

If your new building or renovation project has been completed with unsatisfactory defects, engage DC Pest and Building Inspections to conduct a new building defects inspection and obtain a property condition report.

Why? Because if there are any defects you have proof in the report and are able to notify the builder to rectify these problems, before its too late.

Our Inspectors are qualified builders with years of experience. With this experience we uncover defects that an untrained eye would leave undetected, when defects are found they will be reported on.

Our inspectors are also looking for major and minor building defects, mould, excessive moisture, wood rot and fungi.

Using Tramex moisture meters, will show the percentage of moisture in the buildings walls, floor and any suspicious areas, this can show us if there are any leaks or drainage problems before its too late.

We make ourselves available to discuss the content of the report with you in detail. You are guaranteed to receive your report via email within 24 hours of the inspection

Our Inspectors are fully insured with professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

Thermal Imaging

At DC Pest & Building inspections we use the latest technology in thermal imaging.

Adding thermal imaging to an inspection allows us to find problems in a non-invasive way that the naked eye can’t see, to give you peace of mind.

The thermal imaging camera by FLIR can identify problems early, allowing them to be documented and corrected before becoming more serious and more costly to repair.

Thermal imaging cameras are the perfect tool for locating and identifying building failures and active termites, as they make the invisible visible. On a thermal image problems jump right out at you. A thermal imaging camera is the one tool that really lets you see it all.

Some of the problems that thermal imaging allows us to see is:

  • Active Termites
  • Building Failures
  • Energy Loss
  • Detect missing insulation
  • Detect Mould
  • Detect Moisture
  • Detect Electrical Faults
  • Detect Plumbing Faults
  • Just to name a few.

So it goes without saying, by adding thermal imaging to your inspection, you really do get the full service. You could save yourself thousands in identifying problems, ensuring your peace of mind.
