Why Book a Building and Pest Inspection Service in Cairns?

Whether it’s for your business or for your own home, a building inspection can be very beneficial. Properties naturally degrade over time because of human activity and the forces of nature, and it’s always a good idea to know where exactly your property stands. Having it inspected by qualified building inspectors will let you know how your property is doing, so that you won’t have to be caught off-guard by any necessary emergency renovations.

An inspection can also be a valuable step in long-term property maintenance. Catch early signs of big problems in your property with a building inspection to save yourself any future headaches. We can make sure that there are no pests inhabiting cracks in your walls, no ceilings about to give in, and that your property won’t be in danger of falling apart.

It’s not just old houses that can be littered with problems. Newly constructed properties can have issues too. If you’re planning on purchasing new property here in Cairns, get it inspected first to make sure you know exactly what you’re dealing with. We offer pre-purchase inspection services as well as inspection services for new and existing properties. An understanding of the structural integrity of the property you’re eyeing can help you make wiser decisions.

If getting a building and pest inspection sounds good to you, don’t hesitate to book our services here at Sidepost! We’ll make sure to give you quality service and comprehensive reports so that you can have the necessary information to make your Cairns property shine.

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.
