The inspection report provided by Building House Inspections can range from 60 to 110 pages and includes coloured photographs and illustrations. This detailed report will help you understand the condition of the property you are preparing to buy. The report may seem lengthy, but it isn’t. The photographs that are included in the report take up a lot of space. But these images are important; they will help you understand the existing and potential defects in the property. This will make it easier for you to identify the issues you might face after splurging a grand sum of money.
Moisture meters are used to detect the presence & levels of moisture within building materials such as wood, drywall, & concrete. These meters help identify areas of potential water damage, leaks, or moisture intrusion, which leads to structural issues or mold growth.
A thermal camera, also known as an infrared camera or thermal imaging camera, uses infrared radiation to capture images of heat patterns emitted by objects and surfaces.
A borescope is a flexible tube with a camera and light attached to it. It’s used to visually inspect areas that are difficult to access, such as inside wall cavities, ductwork, or pipes. By inserting the borescope into these areas, our inspectors can examine the condition of hidden components and identify any defects or damages.
The Termatrac device is a specialized tool used for termite inspections. It combines radar, moisture, and thermal sensors to detect termite activity and locate their nests or feeding areas.
