Smart buyers opt for a dependable building inspection company in Berwick
As more and more people take up residence in these far outer suburbs, there is great demand for brand new housing to accommodate growth. When buying a new house, most buyers assume that the newer the property, the better the condition. In most cases this is true, but it does not pay to assume. Newer homes, when built professionally, are subject to the latest and safest building regulations, and all the materials have not been subject to any wear or weather exposure. Leaks, moisture and rotting beams are some common problems with older homes. However, that is not to say that all new homes are in perfect condition. They may have been built irresponsibly, and the builder may have either cut corners on purpose or simply obliviously made some wrong decisions. A pre-purchase inspection in Berwick is non-negotiable. With so many building professionals out there, it is not surprising that some are better than others. In fact, we have come across some downright despicable excuses for building in our time, and it is this that we seek to identify and eliminate. Trust the Look Sharp Inspections team for a respected house inspection opinion in Berwick supported by years of experience.
Ask us about our exhaustive pest and termite inspections in Berwick
Look Sharp Inspections is very meticulous when performing a termite inspection, because we appreciate the enormity of the consequences of overlooking an infestation. We will make use of a range of proven techniques, which ensures that any termite in your walls, floor or ceiling will be found. There are some fairly key ways of testing for termites, with the first being a very simple timber tapping. During this method, an instrument is lightly bounced on timber at various points. If the timber is solid, then it will resist and bounce right back. If there are termites, it may make a hollow sound, or may break the surface entirely, as it is just a shell and is excavated from the inside. We will also use a moisture meter to detect any water in the walls. When termites enter your home, they bring water in with them. If they are situated close to the surface, then this small amount of water will result in discolouration of the timber, which should be an instant warning sign. Wet areas will be more vulnerable than the rest of the home, as there is more risk of moisture leaking into the timber. We will take the style and age of your home into consideration when looking for the red flags of termites.
