Timber Pest Inspection Perth

All of our Perth building inspectors use state-of-the-art equipment designed to identify termites and other timber pests without leaving marks or holes in the property.


What’s involved in a Timber Pest Inspection in Perth

At SURE Building Inspections Perth, our experienced Perth building inspectors will start by inspecting the yard of your property, looking at wooden fences, trees and logs for any signs of termite activity in the yard.

Then they will check the exterior of your property before moving inside where they inspect roof voids and subfloor timber under your house (if accessible) for evidence of a current termite infestation or existing termite damage on your Perth property.

Other key areas inspected as part of your Perth Timber Pest Inspection include:

  • Architraves
  • Door and window frames
  • Skirting boards
  • Walls
  • Cabinetry
  • Moisture testing
  • Roof frame
  • Floors

Why are Timber Pest Inspections important?

A single termite colony is made up of millions of termites that can cause serious damage to your property in a matter of months, resulting in hundreds to thousands of dollars worth of repairs. According to the CSIRO, 1 in 3 Australian homes will be affected by timber pest activity, including termites and white ants, at some point which is why it is crucial to get a professional timber pest inspection completed regularly and prior to purchasing a new house. Refer to AS4349.3-2010 for more details.

If you are purchasing a property in Perth, we recommend our Combined Inspection which includes our Timber Pest Inspection with a Structural Inspection. This will arm you with all the information you need to confidently purchase.
