Our Building Inspections

When you have BPI Brisbane North building inspectors examine your prospective home, they can provide you with important information to help you make an educated purchasing decision. To start, our qualified inspection team compares the home with other houses that are comparable in age and construction.

At this point, we perform a thorough building inspection according to the Australian Standard 4349.1-1995 guidelines.

The BPI Brisbane North Building and Inspection report is a detailed document that explains our findings in the home’s interior, sub floor, exterior, roof void and roof exterior as well as the overall site. The report will also make recommendations about bringing the property up to standard.

Once you have the results of the building inspection, you can make a quality decision about buying the home.

Our Pest Inspections

Pest inspections are also very important in determining your potential Everton Hills home’s value. Unfortunately, the greater Brisbane area is known for its termite problems. According to CSIRO statistics, one in every five Australian houses could have termites.

Because termites can cause considerable damage to any home’s structure, it is vitally important to get a quality pest inspection done.

At BPI Brisbane North, we perform a systematic pest inspection following Australian Standard 4349.3-1998 and AS 3660 inspection guidelines. By utilising the latest thermal camera technology, our technicians can detect wood-destroying insects such as borers, termites or wood-decaying fungi.

The thermal image camera scans areas for hot or cold spots by taking the surface’s temperature. Hot spots will appear white in the camera and could be a sign of a termite nest. Cold spots appear black and could be a sign of a water leak.

Some of our other pest inspection tools include a probe or tapping device and a moisture meter. These specialised tools help our pest inspection team discover areas of termite activity.
