This is what we found on recent inspections

  • Termites Previous owners had left debris and timber stored under their house, providing a fertile breeding ground for termites. Understandably, most home buyers miss these hard-to-access areas. Along with the proximity of trees and fences surrounding the property, termites have an easy time causing a lot of underfloor damage, very quickly. Repair Cost: $50,000+
  • Decayed Underfloor Unseen leaking pipes create a haven for termites, leading to long-term damage. Rotten joists had created a sagging floor, with the owner forced to replace the underfloor area, floorboards and carpet. Repair Cost: $12,000+
  • Rotten Internal Walls We discovered decay to internal walls in wood and brick homes alike. Termites need a gap less than 2mm in mortar, ventilation or loose downpipes to reach the internal walls. Understandably, buyers rarely think to inspect these hard-to-access areas on a viewing.

24 month FREE termite management program.

They not only protect your home, but once they have completed your initial termite treatment, they will add your home to an 24 month Termite Management Program.
