Why Book a Building and Pest Inspection Service in Ballarat?

A business with walls falling apart or a home that forces you to watch where you step because of unstable flooring don’t sound like very comfortable spaces to stay in. It’s hard to entice customers to your establishment, and it could be embarrassing to invite guests over to your home. Properties that may not have visible problems like these aren’t entirely safe from signs of damage either.

Save your property from potential ruin by having it inspected. Sidepost’s building inspectors are trained, highly skilled professionals who can properly assess your property and spot any signs of damage. We can understand the ins and outs of your property’s structure and the depths of its problems, so you can be assured that your property will be in good hands.

Our services also include pest inspection, so if any pests such as termites have made a home within your walls or floors, we’ll find them. Pest infestations can weaken your property’s structure. Early detection is ideal so that any pests can be dealt with before the need for any intensive repairs or renovation.

Sidepost’s building inspectors will find these problems for you, then give you the information you need in a comprehensive, easy to understand report (complete with pictures!) as well as a recommendation on the steps you can take moving forward.

Feel safe and comfortable again in your own property by having us take a look at it. Book our services now!

Very accomodating

Thank you for conducting our building and pest inspection on short-notice. The report was very comprehensive and quick to read. The inspector even explained their process, which is useful when looking for problems in my own properties.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a building and pest inspection?

A: A building and pest inspection assesses a property to check for structural damage and infestation signs. A licensed inspector usually performs one before a property is purchased. If no defects are detected, the property should be clear to proceed with the sale without further delay.

Q: How long does a building and pest inspection report take?

A: Most building and pest inspections take 90 minutes to 2 hours to complete. The length of time it takes for our building and pest inspector to assess the property will depend on its size and condition. Buildings with more accessible areas, or those in need of several repairs, will take longer to inspect.

Q: Can I be there for the inspection?

A: Yes, clients are more than welcome to be present during their building inspections and pest inspections. However, we ask that you refrain from requesting the inspector any questions during the inspection, as this can interfere with their work. If you have any questions, please ask them after the review has been completed.

Q: What equipment do your inspectors use?

A: All of Sidepost's inspectors are fully equipped with the latest inspection technology, including thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, and more. They'll also carry ladders, torches, and other necessary equipment to conduct a thorough property inspection.

Q: Are your inspectors licensed?

A: Yes, all of our inspectors under the Sidepost company are licensed and qualified to carry out building and pest inspections. They're also highly experienced, having worked in the construction industry for at least 5 years.

Q: Can I reschedule a pest inspection booking online?

A: Absolutely! If you need to reschedule your inspection, you can log into your Sidepost account and do so from there. You can also cancel your inspection, but we advise you to do so at least 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged.

Q: What does a building and pest inspection cover?

A: All building inspectors will cover the structural integrity of the property, as well as any potential issues with its plumbing, electrical, flooring, and roofing. A pest inspection will check for signs of infestation by common.
