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!

How We Help You on the Gold Coast

We deliver easy-to-read reports to help you make the right decision. As a company, we’re here to help in one of your largest investment decisions.
Our condition reports are following Australian Standards and are recognised by real estate agents and solicitors. The report will give you the peace of mind to make an informed decision about purchasing a property on the Gold Coast.
It may even help you dodge a bad deal that could costs you $1000s in repairs. Here’s how we prepare your condition report.

PHASE ONE

Building Inspection Gold Coast

While the property might look ideal – you’ve no doubt been told it’s “great condition” – it’s always recomended to get a second opinion of an industry expert. Freshly painted areas could in fact be hiding rotting frames, or flaws that will need the expensive maintenance.
To keep protected, your Gold Coast inspector will be on the lookout for defects and homeowner cover-ups to determine the actual extent of the damage. They’ll bring ladders, powerful torches and specialist devices to inspect visible areas. They’ll even use radar and thermal equipment to check inside the walls for leaks, moisture and termites.
And unlike some other inspection services that will change you extra for these services, they’re all included in our base cost We’re here to provide you the maximum protection.

PHASE TWO

Pest Inspection Gold Coast

Pest inspections on the Gold Coast used to mean drilling, tapping, and even ripping out sections of the wall. Not only are these methods messy and intrusive, they often miss deeply housed nest areas.
Fortunately, our inspectors use state-of-the-art technology designed specifically to detect pests without damaging the property. Each RBI inspector in Gold Coast is equipped with (and trained to use) the Termatrac device – the only device that can precisely detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites without needing to penetrate walls, floors or ceilings physically.
Using a combination of thermal, moisture and radar technology, they can look through walls, ceilings and floors without leaving even a mark. They’ll inspect every visible and accessible area of the property for both current and potential nesting hotspots.

PHASE THREE

The Condition Report

Our reports are written in plain, simple, easy English, and prepared under current industry practice. We’ll highlight areas of concern, and point out hazards and defects that may need costly repairs. We’ll also provide photos and recommendations on the work required to rectify the issues. Need to know more? Feel free to speak to your Inspector or call the Head Office to clear anything up.

Latest Technology in Gold Coast

Our expert RBI inspectors on the Gold Coast all use the Termatrac T31 and Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus. These devices can precisely confirm the presence of termites without needing to physically penetrate any walls, floors or ceilings and more importantly, it won’t disrupt or displace termite activity.

Termatrac Thermal

The Termite Detection Radar accurately detects and confirms the presence of termites in the suspect areas. The Remote Thermal Sensor can pinpoint significant heat sources generated by termites within conventional building structures. It can also trace and locate termite nests and entry points.

Termatrac Radar

No more holes in walls, and no need for tapping or prodding. And because the termites aren’t disturbed, they remain active for easy and accurate detection by the Termatrac Termite Detection Radar. Using a specifically calibrated radar signal, this device can identify termites through timber, brick, masonry, concrete, plasterboard, plastic and other common building materials.

Termatrac Moisture Sensor

This tool can can identify potential termite risk areas by the concentrated presence of moisture in most surfaces including wood, drywall, roofing, plastic, brick and concrete. The Moisture sensor built into the single Termatrac T3i hand-held unit can measure and record differential moisture levels in building materials without damaging them.

Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus

Our Gold Coast inspectors all use the Tramex Moisture Encounter plus (MEP)- a non-destructive overall building inspection moisture meter. 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.

Fastest turnaround time in Gold Coast

You’ll get your report within 24-hours of the inspection being completed and if you don’t, we will give your money back.

But just because we’re fast, doesn’t mean are not comprehensive.

Every report has to pass a stringent quality review from head office before it’s sent to you. We care about quality and your potential purchase.

Lowest Price in Gold Coast

Our business model means we can provide the best price in each region. If you can find a lower comparable price, send us a copy of the written quote and we’ll price match it!

*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?

By having minimal face-to-face interactions between the RBI Inspector and the custodian of the property.

To do this, you must provide access to the property at the agreed time and date. Coordinating access to the property is time-consuming, and we can’t afford to have our inspectors calling agents and sellers to arrange access.

Our commitment is to provide a high-quality condition report. But to do that, we need you to confirm access for our inspectors on our behalf at the agreed date and time.

If you can’t secure a time for them to access the property, let us know 24-hours in advance so we can make book another time.

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.
