Some of the tools our technicians use include:

We understand that our pre-purchase timber pest inspection reports play a vital role in your investment decision making. That’s why we strive to have your comprehensive report available to you within 48 hours of the inspection.

What will my Pre-Purchase Inspection report include?

Your report will document any evidence found of current timber pest activity, and any evidence found of past treatments or management systems in place.

Areas of high moisture, wood decay, and fungi are also reported on, so you can take actions to reduce the probability of timber pest activity in the future.

Where timber pest damage or activity is found, your report will include photographs of the affected area, whether the damaged area is a potential hazard, and technician’s notes regarding the area of concern.
