Save money with a combined building & pest inspection

Regardless of the reason you are buying a property, it’s a signficant investment and you need a building & pest inspection. You don’t want any surprise repair bills once you own that property. These days a building and pest inspection as part of the purchasing process.

Inspections can be requested by the buyer or the seller. A building inspection of an existing structure examines elements of the interior, exterior, shell, foundation, outbuildings and grounds to determine whether there are major defects. If problems are found, these reports can save you thousands because the buyer has the opportunity to re-negotiate the purchase price or walk away.

Knowing that no problems are present at the time of inspection lets you rest assured that the building is sound. Identifying problems before the property is transferred allows the buyer and seller to negotiate how defects will be corrected.

Using the latest technology we are able to provide you a complete snapshot of a property at an affordable price. Thermal imaging cameras detect moisture and termite activity and provide added peace of mind for home owners and buyers. We use drones to inspect hard to access areas such as homes on sloping blocks and rooflines.

Working with BPI Southern Sydney is just like having an expert friend on your side.
We’ll explain everything you need to know about your building & pest inspection.

Unrivalled results with through thermal imaging equipment

At BPI we invest heavily in the latest equipment to provide you an abundance of information about a property. A thermal imaging camera is a vital tool for a property inspector and the model that we use leads the market in functionality.

A thermal imaging camera is used to scan for ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ spots. By measuring the surface temperature of materials, the camera will show black (cold) spots or white (hot) spots. A termite nest will be hotter than its surrounds and will show as a white ‘hot’ spot. A shower or roof leak will show up as a black or ‘cold’ spot.

The camera although not an Australian Standard is an added service that we provide which gives piece of mind when buying a home.
