Use the team experienced in house inspections in Wonthaggi
Each location is unique in terms of weather and environmental conditions and housing style. Both of these factors heavily influence the likelihood of different property problems including mould, pests and erosion. Having an inspector who has worked previously in your area will be advantageous, as they will likely know the areas which are most at risk. That being said, you do not want to narrow the focus too far. While it is great to have a professional who specialises in your area, you also want someone who has a broad understanding of all types of damage, as they can often be related.
Wonthaggi for example has a strip of coastline which increases moisture and salt in the air, as well as introducing strong ocean winds. Moisture in the air can increase the chances of beams warping and rotting, and this in turn can then put increased strain on the walls. Our small team is considered expert across a wide range of structural fault finding and repair. Talk to the qualified home inspections company in Wonthaggi today.
We inspect your whole site during a pest and termite inspection in Wonthaggi
After 25 years of working in the inspecting business, we know exactly where to look and what to look for. When looking for termites, there are some very common spots that are particularly vulnerable to infestation. These can include the foundations, the walls and the roof. It is then a matter of using the latest tools as well as our years of training and experience to determine the location and extent of the damage. However, what many fail to realise is that it is also important to inspect the surrounds of your house for signs of damage. Tree trunks or stumps in close proximity to your house may be of concern if they display some signs of pest presence, as termites have been known to tunnel from tree to house. These termite colonies built in trees are called arborial nests. We will also inspect any timber fencing which is located nearby, as this could also potentially be a threat.
