How We Help You in Ballarat

Property purchase is a very important decision and our “easy to read” reports can help you make the correct choice. Drafted according to Australian Standards, our property reports are recognised by estate agents and lawyers. The condition reports will give you complete peace of mind in making an educated property purchase decision and can even help you avoid a deal which can potentially cost thousands in expensive repairs.

Here are some steps followed by us in drafting the condition report.


Building Inspection Ballarat

The property you plan to buy may appear to be in “excellent condition” and look really good; however, it is very important to get an industry expert to give you a second opinion. The areas that have been freshly painted can be concealing flaws or rotten frames that will require costly maintenance.

The goal of our property inspector is to protect your investment. The inspector will examine the property for cover ups by the homeowner and defects to assess the actual amount of damage. They will bring along specialist equipment, ladders and powerful torches to examine all the visible areas and they will also make use of thermal and radar equipment to inspect the inner portions of the walls for the presence of moisture, leaks and termites.

While other inspection service providers will charge extra for all these services, we include them in the base cost and you won’t have to pay anything extra.


Pest Inspection Ballarat

Usually, pest inspection involves tapping, drilling and also tearing out portions of the wall. This is not only very messy but quite disruptive too and very often, the nesting areas that are deeply housed are completely missed. Thanks to the state-of-the-art equipment and technology used by our pest inspectors, they can spot the pests without causing any damage to your property. Our inspectors make use of a combination of moisture, radar and thermal technology that can help to look through the floors, walls and ceilings without leaving a trace.

Every RBI inspector is trained in the use of the Termatrac equipment, which is the only tool that can spot and pinpoint termite presence precisely without the need to penetrate the floors, walls and ceilings. Our inspectors will examine each and every part of the property that is visible and accessible for current, as well as, potential hotspots for nesting.


Ballarat Pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection Reports

The reports we deliver to you are drafted in plain and simple English and are prepared as per the current industry standards. Our reports will pinpoint all the concern areas and also highlight the defects and hazards, which may require expensive repairs. We will also provide photographs and our suggestions about the work that may be needed to rectify the problems.

All our work comes with professional indemnity insurance of up to $5,000,000. We won’t need it, but isn’t it nice to know you’re covered if something does happen.

Latest Technology in Ballarat

Our expert RBI inspectors all use the Termatrac T31 and Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus. These devices can precisely detect, locate and 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.

SSL Secure Connection
How Do We Keep Our Prices Low?

To ensure that you get the condition report very quickly, we would like to minimise any personal interactions between the property seller and the RBI inspector and for this, we request that our inspector has access to the property at the appointed date and time. Coordinating access and making calls are time consuming and could make the entire process overly complicated.

We guarantee that the report we provide is of the highest quality; however, in order that we deliver, we request confirmed access of the property for our inspector at the appointed time. And, for some reason, if it is not possible to get access at the particular time, do give us 24-hour advance notice and we will reschedule the booking to another suitable time.
