Inspection of a subfloor for pests and defects

What is a building & pest inspection

A building & pest inspection report provides detailed information about the condition of a property, which is crucial when buying or selling. Our qualified building inspectors will check for any significant damage and provide an unbiased report of their findings. This will help you make an informed decision about the property.


The report will also identify any areas of concern, the severity of the issue, and recommendations for further action. This can be beneficial in negotiating a more competitive price if any repairs are required.


Similarly, a pre-sale inspection can help you identify any issues that could affect the sale of your property and give you the opportunity to correct them before putting your property on the market.

What Technology do we use

There are 3 main high tech tools we use during inspections; a Moisture Meter, a Thermal Imaging Camera, and a Drone.

Each of these tools used with the expert skill of our inspector form a critical part of any inspection. At ThoroughCheck we only use the highest quality professional grade equipment for the greatest accuracy and resolution of images. 

Our inspectors are expertly trained and experienced in using these tools, and are able to interpret the results and data accurately.
