How We Help You in Adelaide

Buying a house for yourself or your family is one of the biggest deals you will make in a lifetime, and we, at RBI acknowledge that fact. We work towards helping you make an informed decision, and provide you with a thoroughly professional service when you partner with us.
We follow Australian Standards while writing our reports and they are acknowledged by solicitors and real estate agents. So before you make up your mind about buying a property in Adelaide, you would have been well informed and would be in a secure state of mind.
Our well-informed reports could help you circumvent a terrible deal that might cost you heaps in upkeep and repairs later. Let’s take a look at how our condition reports are prepared.


Building Inspection Adelaide

It is always a great idea to consult an industry expert and get an expert opinion, regardless of you being told that the property (that you are interested in) is in “pristine condition”. This is because a layman may not be able to tell the rotting frames behind those newly painted areas, or signs of ongoing pest activity.
Our experts who are trained in their respective fields can call attention to areas of the house that may require repairs down the line and cost you loads on the current problems.
Our experts go over the property with a keen eye and look for signs if the seller has attempted to cover up the actual damage of the property. They are equipped with special devices and other standard gear such as torches and ladders to inspect all the visible areas and keep you covered.
If need be, areas that are not visible to the eyes such as walls and cavities are checked using thermal sensing and radar equipment. We always quote a fixed price and do not charge you extra fees, unlike a few other inspection services.


Pest Inspection Adelaide

Earlier, if you mentioned pest inspections in Adelaide, that would mean disturbing the property, such as taking out wall sections, tapping or drilling. These methods may look thorough but nested zones still could be missed altogether and the methods are invasive and messy, to say the least. But our trained inspectors do not damage the property and instead, use state-of-the-art technology to detect pests.
Our inspectors go through the entire property (including through walls) without even putting a scratch using radar, moisture and thermal technology.

The Termatrac T3i devices, an industry leading device can locate, detect and confirm the presence of “silent destroyers” such as termites, and all our RBI inspectors are equipped with one. These devices do not physically penetrate any ceiling, floors or ceilings and inspect all the visible areas of your property for any existing signs of termite nests.


Adelaide Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection Reports

As we mentioned, all our reports (pest or pre-purchase) are in simple English and written following Australian Standards (AS 4349.1-2007 and AS 4349.3). Our job is to tell you which are the areas of your property that may need costly repairs and if there are any concerns regarding safety. To show how thorough we are, we also supplement our reports with photographs that highlight the said safety hazards and all the defects that we may have identified.

Our reports included:

The Findings

Our pre-purchase building and pest reports are prepared in accordance with Australian Standards (AS 4349.1-2007 and AS 4349.3) and are therefore recognised by real estate agents and solicitors.

If we find any issues that could potentially compromise your investment, our report can be used as grounds to terminate your contract or strengthen your negotiating position.

This means you can make your purchase decision with confidence, knowing the property has been thoroughly checked by an industry expert in Adelaide.

What Our Recent Customers Say About Our Inspections

Latest Technology in Adelaide

Our expert RBI inspectors on the Adelaide 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 ‘Remote Thermal Sensor’ can pin point significant heat sources generated by termites within conventional building structures and the Termite Detection Radar accurately detects and confirms the presence of termites in the suspect areas. It can also trace and locate termite nests and entry points.

Termatrac Radar

Using a calibrated radar signal, this device can identify 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 aren’t disturbed, they remain active for easy and accurate detection by the Termatrac Termite Detection Radar.

Termatrac Moisture Sensor

The moisture sensor built into the ‘Termatrac T3i’ hand-held unit can measure and record differential moisture levels in building materials without damaging them. 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)’. It is a non-invasive overall building inspection moisture meter. It’s 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.

How Do We Keep Our Prices Low?

We are committed to providing our customers with reports that are absolutely unbiased, thorough and high in quality — all this at the lowest price! And what is our secret you ask? We save on these costs by minimizing the face-to-face interactions between the real estate agent, the RBI Adelaide inspector and the owner themselves. It’s that simple!
Naturally, coordinating (such as arranging access to the property by calling either the owner or the property agent) can take up a lot of time, so instead we acquire guaranteed access for our inspectors at an arranged date and time, so they can get right on the job and get your report to you as quickly as possible!
All you need to do is let us know a day prior to the inspection in case you are unable to arrange the said time for them so we can do it at some other prearranged time.
