Timber Pest Inspections Brisbane

Residential and Commercial Properties

Termites and other timber pests can cause extensive damage to your property.  Don’t leave it until its too late!  Any property owner should always have regular timber pest inspections carried out to lower the risk of termite attack and protect their investment.  Most insurance companies do not cover termite damage or treatments.  Whether you already have a termite barrier installed or not, annual inspections are key.

If you are buying a property, the last thing you want is a nasty surprise after you’ve spent all that money on your purchase and moved in.  You should always get a timber pest inspection for your piece of mind.  Otherwise you could be spending thousands more repairing termite damage or  trying to destroy a termite colony that lives with you.

Pest Inspections - Where do we look?

Timber pest inspections are specifically of wood or timber in the property and its susceptibility to pests.  Inspections are completed to Australian Standard AS 4349.3 and we inspect all areas of a property that are reasonably accessible, including –

  • the interior and exterior
  • the roof space
  • the roof exterior (subject to health & safety regulations)
  • the subfloor area (if it is raised off the ground)
  • the grounds including any trees, landscaping, fences, retaining walls and sheds/outhouses within 30m of the property



Pest Inspections - What do we look for?

Most people will know that timber pest inspections report on any current borer or termite workings and live activity.  But we also search for and report on the risk to the property in its current condition.  This includes –

  • old workings or damage
  • whether there is an existing termite management program or a new one is recommended
  • bridging or breaching of termite barriers and inspection zones
  • areas with high levels of moisture
  • site drainage and services
  • lack of subfloor ventilation if applicable
  • any areas with fungal decay and rot
  • any other conducive conditions for termites and timber pests
