Fantastic service from Rapid Building Inspections!From the first point of contact, Will was helpful & friendly. He organised our inspection time directly with the Agent.Scott, the Inspector, was punctual & extremely thorough in his inspection which took place late on a Friday afternoon but we still had the detailed report sent to us that same night which was a welcome surprise. The follow up phone call from Wayne was also very much appreciated. Couldn't fault anyone at Rapid, 10 out of 10 for all areas of customer service. Great price too. Would recommend them to anyone needing these kind of services.Thanks guys!

The team at Rapid Building Inspections are outstanding and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a building & pest inspection. The RBI team made the whole process so easy and were extremely accommodating when we had to change our dates around. Kane, the inspector was very thorough and identified a number of issues that we weren’t aware of. The report was detailed and gave us a great overview of the condition of the property. If we ever need to move again we’ll definitely be giving these guys a call, I can’t recommend them enough!

Everyone on the phone was kind and helpful, and the report I got was stunning in its comprehensiveness; no detail escaped them. You can definitely use these people without worry. Dani

How We Help You on the Caloundra

We will give you a comprehensive report that follows Australian Standards and Quality Guidelines and is recognised by real estate agents and solicitors in Caloundra.
We’ve designed the report to give you the information you need to make an educated decision about purchasing a property (or not).
Our reports are easy to read and may even help you dodge a bad deal that could costs you thousands in repairs. Here’s how we prepare your condition report.

PHASE ONE

Building Inspection Caloundra

The property looks perfect, the estate agent tells you it is one of the best he’s ever seen; but a wise buyer always takes a second opinion by an experienced expert. Freshly painted areas could be hiding rotten wooden structures, and some signs of infestation could be invisible to the untrained eye
RBI’s highly-qualified inspectors can show you what’s wrong now and what might be a problem in the future. He will sniff out defects and attempts to hide the evidence of them. Armed with all the tools-of-the-trade, they’ll never miss a trick.
If necessary, our inspectors can even use radar and thermal sensing equipment to check inside walls and cavities – all included in our fixed, industry-beating price.

PHASE TWO

Pest Inspection Caloundra

Gone are the days when pest inspections meant the need to drill, tap and sometimes even rip out sections of wall. These methods were not only intrusive, they also often missed nest areas deep in the building’s structure. Today, Rapid Building Inspections use state-of-the-art technology to detect pests leaving the building undisturbed.
A combination of thermal and moisture sensing plus radar technology will detect problems through walls without leaving a trace.
Our inspectors are all trained to use and equipped with the Termatrac t3i device, the only device on the market able to make a precise determination of the presence of termites without damaging the property.

PHASE THREE

The Condition Report

Prepared according to Australian Standards AS4349.1-2007 and AS4349.3 and written in plain English for the layman to follow easily, our inspection reports are straightforward and clear, and confirm to legal requirements. We’ll highlight everything you need to know, including any safety hazards or costly repairs you may face, and we provide photos so you can follow exactly where problems and potential issues lurk.

Latest Technology in Caloundra

Every RBI inspector carries the Thermatrac t3i and Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus devices which can precisely, detect, locate and confirm the presence or termites without physically penetrating the walls, floors or ceilings – and furthermore, we won’t displace any termite activity that is present.

Termatrac Thermal

The remote thermal sensor pin-points signification heat sources within conventional structures and the termite detection radar confirms the presence of termites in the suspect areas, as well as detecting nests and entry points.

Termatrac Radar

Using a calibrated radar signal, this device identifies termites through timber, brick, masonry, concrete, plasterboard, plastic and other common building materials. No more holes in walls, and no need for tapping or prodding. And because the termites are never disturbed, they remain active for easy and accurate detection by the Termatrac Termite Detection Radar.

Termatrac Moisture Sensor

The Thermatrac t3i hand-held unit’s moisture sensor hand-held unit can measure and record differential moisture levels in building materials without causing any damage. It can identify potential termite risk areas by the concentrated presence of moisture in most surfaces including wood, plasterboard, roofing, plastic, brick and concrete.

Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus

Our inspectors all carry the ‘Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus (MEP)’. This non-invasive overall building inspection moisture meter is fast, precise and versatile! It can measure and evaluate moisture levels through paint, wall coatings, plasterboard, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, roof coverings and ceilings.

*1 No refund will be applicable if the payment for the report has not been received within 24-hours of completing the transaction.

*2 The price must be for the exact same service we are offering, with the same equipment in the same geographical region.
*3 While all RBI inspectors carry thermal sensor and moisture detection devices, these devices are only deployed where the inspector identifies conducive conditions and further investigation is warranted.

We accept multiple forms of payment

How Do We Keep Our Prices Low?

Our promise to you is to provide a top-quality, totally unbiased pre-purchase inspection report at the best price in Queensland. How? By keeping it simple, and not expecting our inspector to do the negotiating with the seller and the estate agent.

Our inspectors are free to concentrate on the job of inspecting properties and getting the reports delivered on time because access to the property is obtained before the inspector gets involved. We ask you to confirm access with the estate agent so that our man-on-the-ground is free on the day to get to our appointment on time.

If you can’t get access to the property at the agreed time, all we ask is that you notify is at least 24-hours before the appointment, giving us time to reschedule.

RBI is fantastic - I would definitely recommend them to anyone that needs a succinct building and pest inspection. Kane provided us with a thorough and detailed report within 6 hours of carrying out the work! He made it very easy to understand, and makes himself readily available for any questions you might have. If you require any information before booking their services, I would 100% suggest speaking with Lee Arkle - his customer service is out of this world. He didn't pressure us into choosing RBI, and was incredibly friendly/forgiving when I rang him back after avoiding his calls for a week (whoops!) due to some minor setbacks. He even took the hassle out of having to organise a time with the real estate agent and the inspector to make the process run even smoother for us. 5/5 Stars.

We were really happy with the service RBI building inspector Kane provided us with. He was very thorough with the inspection - let us know every detail about the home and any repairs we may be faced with in the near and distant future. He gave us advice on what we would need to do to the home for immediate maintenance to prevent further damage and the steps we should take further down the line.
