Building and Pest experts are on call 1300 737 826

1300 Pest Control specialise in building and pest inspections in Brisbane and surrounding areas. For most, buying a property is the single most important purchase in peoples’ lives. Part of your due diligence should include a pre purchase inspection, or commonly known as a property inspection.


Like the name suggests, a building and pest inspection consists of two different inspections. Our building inspector carries out the building and pest inspection and completes a building report and a timber pest report. These two reports are governed by Australian Standards which outline the way we carry out the home inspection.


Experience matters when it comes to a pre purchase inspection and our building and pest inspectors have a building licence and timber pest licence. Also we are part of the Master Builders Association.


Building and pest inspections generally take 2 hours to complete. If possible, we strongly recommend you attend the inspection. That way any concerns you have about the property can be address. If you cannot attend, then our inspector will call you after the inspection to discuss the findings.


Building Inspection

Our Building Inspections adhere to Australian Standards 4349.1.

This is a visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the property, detecting any cracks, defects and safety issues. The building report compares the property with a property of similar age and construction type. Variations to normal conditions expected are outlined in the building report.


Timber Pest Inspection

All timber and other accessible materials such as structural timber frames, joists, rafters, bearers and any joinery are thoroughly examined and reported on. Both the internal and external areas of the property are examined, including foundation soils, outdoor landscaping timbers, pavers, trees and tree stumps.

The pest inspection report will advise if there is evidence of timber pest activity as well as conditions that would create a high risk timber pest area.


1300 Pest Control offer Termite Management Solutions that can be implemented to reduce the likelihood of any future timber pest infestations on the property. Being local is important so if you are ready to purchase a property and need a building and pest inspection in Brisbane or the surrounding area, please give us a call.
