Don’t Let Termite Inspection Cost Undermine Your Property Investment
Termites never sleep. They chew through wood 24 hours per day and can cause serious structural damage to a building in a very short time without detection. In Victoria, nearly one in three homes has some form of termite damage. Termites often have a nest in tree roots near a house and tunnel underground to reach the building where they eat away wooden beams and trusses.
By the time you see mud tunnels, a sizeable amount of structural timbers may already be destroyed. Compared to the fee for structural repairs, termite inspection cost is a small price to pay.
Before you purchase a property in Melbourne, request a property inspection from Melbourne House Check, including a thorough investigation for signs of termite damage. We use the latest technology to detect pests inside walls and inaccessible areas. The Termatrac T3i sensor device enables our operators to detect termites through walls by radar, thermal, and humidity soundings without the need to dismantle structures. This means that you won’t need to add the cost of sight-hole damage to your termite inspection cost.
A thorough property inspection by a licenced operator is essential when a property changes hands. Both insurance companies and banks providing loans require a property inspection report as part of the documentation for transfer of ownership. However, pest inspection is not always part of the report: in most cases, the seller of a property is responsible for submitting a property inspection report.
As a buyer, it is in your best interest to ensure pest inspection is included in the report. Contact Melbourne House Check today to enquire about termite inspection cost.
