What is a Building Inspection?

Correctly carried out building inspections involve a complete and very thorough inspection of every accessible part of a building. Along the way, inspectors look out for defects, damages and other issues that could signal serious problems. With a Twinspectors building inspection, a two-man team takes an intensive look at every accessible area in a building. The following areas/issues are examples of what is examined:

  • Bathrooms

    Leaking pipes, poor ventilation, cracked toilet pans, shower screen glass issues

  • Kitchens

    Stove damage, shoddy splashbacks, benchtop and cabinet moisture damage

  • Other Living Areas

    Carpet staining and wear, loose floor tiles, door jamb misalignments, inadequate window flashings, bent fly screen frames, missing fireplace grates, loose floorboards, blistering paint, signs of water penetration to walls

  • Property

    Decaying fences, cracked retaining walls, damaged driveways and paths, inadequate drainage, deteriorated barbecues, hazardous tree locations

  • Underfloor/Subfloor Areas

    Inadequate tie-downs, decaying bearer connections, cracking concrete slabs, incorrectly installed termite barriers, cracks in foundation walls

  • Other

    Building inspectors also examine a building’s exterior, the interior and exterior of its roof, its garage and any outbuildings that may be on the property. Limited swimming pool inspections are also included.

What is a Pest Inspection?

A Twinspectors pest inspection is carried out to locate the presence of wood-destroying insects like termites and borers. Inspectors look for evidence of damage and pinpoint the location of pests, if any are present. A pest inspection educates homeowners about the presence of pests in their homes and gives them a starting point for remedying the situation.

Client Reviews

I required a pre­purchase Building and Pest Inspection. I would recommend Twinspectors, their staff were friendly and helpful and were able to accommodate my appointment at short notice. The Inspectors on the day were great (experienced and knowledgeable) and fully explained everything they were doing. The report they produced was well structured and easy to understand and included everything we had discussed. They even include a free cockroach treatment at settlement! Price was reasonable. Overall very happy with Twinspectors.
