Building and Pest Inspections Ascot

Old homes in the suburb of Ascot are charming, even picturesque. But while such grand and lovely Queenslander homes do make for attractive properties, there may be problems lurking underneath the structure.

Secure Your Property

Ascot property owners should know, also maintain the value of any home. By doing our thorough inspections, we can spot issues that could damage your home, and consequently, affect its market price.

Improve Comfort and Safety

Building deficiencies not only impact the way you enjoy your home. They can also expose you and your family to certain hazards. The decaying roofing system may give way during harsh weather season. Excessive moisture may lead to mould growth. And pest infestation could endanger the very stability of your property’s foundation, not to mention create all sorts of health issues.

These and other potential problems in homes, particularly old ones, can instantly be discovered and remedied through our extensive building and pest inspections.

We Have the Experience, the Expertise, and the Tools

At BPI Building and Pest Inspection, we have over 20 years of experience doing all kinds of inspections. Led by fully licensed and insured builder, Martin Slater, BPI has been helping countless clients in Ascot and the rest of Queensland make informed decisions about their properties.

Whether it’s a pre-purchase inspection or a structural and pest report, our extensive inspections comply with Australian standards. We identify all major defects and safety hazards where building inspections are concerned. We uncover as well as classify pests, in accordance with Australia’s pest inspection guidelines.

Along with our thorough inspection techniques, we utilise some of the industry’s best tools:

  • Thermal Imaging Camera – Measures surface temperature of materials, and determines the presence of termites. It can also discover roof leaks, which show up as a “cold” spot in the scanning process.
  • Moisture Metre – Detects termite activity.
  • Probe/Tapping Device – Reveals termite damage in door jambs, window frames, and other timbers.

And We Perform Pool Inspections, Too!

One other area we focus on is the pool. With Queensland pool safety laws calling for this backyard feature to comply with Queensland Development Code, our inspections make sure your pool is compliant.

From checking your pool fence for safety to reducing child access to your pool, the BPI pool inspection is here to give you peace of mind.
