Purchasing a property can be an exciting and nervous time. Part of your property research should involved a detailed Building Inspection. 1300 Pest Control specialises in Building and Pest Inspections on the Gold Coast. Our Building Inspections are carried out by a fully licenced and insured Building Inspector who are qualified licenced builders and also have their Timber Pest Licence. All too often Building and Pest Inspections are carried out by a builder just carrying a general pest licence!


The Property Inspection is broken up into two parts:

Building Inspection

The Home Inspection is a visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the property. We look for cracks, defects and safety concerns. Then the property is compared  to a similar property of age and construction. All variations to the normal condition are outlined in the report.


Timber Pest Inspection

Pest Inspections concentrate on timber pest activity to structual timber frames, joists, bearing and any joinery. Externally – foundation soils, landscaping timbers, pavers and trees are examined. This report reflects whether there is evidence of activity and potential environments which would entice timber pest activity.


We use a number of tools to carry out Property Inspections and this includes:

  • A Moisture Meter – Termites are made up of 95% moisture.
  • Video Inspection/Borescope – Used to see inside wall cavities, trees and other voids.
  • Termatrac T3i – Worlds most accurate Termite Thermal Radar system.
  • Acoustic Probes – Used to hear Termite activity within walls.


The one inspector carries out the two reports. This generally takes two hours to complete the Building and Pest Inspection. If you attend the Pre Purchase Inspection then you will receive the reports once they are written and paid for. If you do not attend the reports will be sent the next business day via email or fax.


Local knowledge is key with Building and Pest Inspections on the Gold Coast. Let us at 1300 Pest Control help you purchase the right property.
