Building Inspections In Launceston

When you buy a home, it will likely be the largest investment you make in your life. That is why take some of the stress out of this decision and allow you to make an informed decision with our easy-to-read reports.
It is good to know that our condition reports not only follow Australian Standards but are also recognised by solicitors and real estate agents.
Our condition reports can even help you avoid buying a property that could cost thousands in repairs. Because we value transparency, we’ll tell you how your condition report is prepared.

Home Inspections Launceston

Getting a second opinion by an industry expert is always a good idea with such a large investment, even if the property looks good at a glance and both the seller and homeowner tell you it’s in “top shape.” What may look like recently painted walls could be hiding rotting frames. As an untrained professional, you may even look past easily identifiable pest evidence.
Having a trained expert at your side will help you identify both potential and actual issues that may cost a great deal in repairs later on. Your inspector will be looking out for your interest, looking for seller ‘cover-ups’ and defects. If they find them, they’ll determine the extent of the damage. In order to inspect visible areas, they will use specialised devices, powerful torches and ladders to make sure that no stone goes unturned.
They’ll even go beyond what is visible with the naked eye and use thermal sensing and radar equipment to look inside the walls and cavities if necessary. We won’t charge you extra if the need arises either, that is all included in our fixed quoted cost.

Pest Inspection Launceston

Pest inspections in Launceston were invasive and messy, they included tapping, drilling and sometimes even ripping entire sections of the walls. And unfortunately, these testing methods still managed to miss deeply housed nest areas. Nowadays our inspectors use state-of-the-art technology that will detect any pests without doing any damage to the property.
Our inspectors are able to look through floors, ceilings, and walls without even leaving a mark on your home.
That is because each expert RBI Launceston inspector carries the Termatrac T3i device. This is the industry-leading device that can help detect, locate and confirm the fact that your house has termites. And it can do so without having to penetrate your ceiling, floors or wall. They will make sure to check for nesting hotspots in every visible area of the property!

Property Inspections Launceston

What’s good in a pre-purchase building and pest report if you do not understand half the worlds included? That is why we prepare them in accordance with Australian Standard (AS 4349.1-2007 and AS 4349.3) requirements and write in ‘plain’ English without the constant use of lingo. We make sure that safety hazards and defects that may need costly repairs and areas of concern are highlighted and pointed. If there are any safety hazards and identified defects we’ll even provide photos showing the location for easy identification later on.

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 Launceston

Technology has come a long way, and that is why our expert RBI inspectors all use the Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus and Termatrac T31. These devices make it possible to detect termites without having to physically damage your walls, ceilings or floors. The added benefit is that it will not disrupt or displace termite activity which would simply ‘relocate’ the problem.
Termatrac Thermal (Home Inspections)
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 (Pest Inspections)
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 (Property Inspections)
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 (Pre-Purchase Inspections)
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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does rapid mean? It means fast dispatch, not missing the appointment and efficient turnaround time for your report!
When can you do the inspection? We never turn work away, so we will endeavour to make a slot available to you at the earliest convenience.
Could I attend the inspection? Yes, you can be on-site when the inspection is taking place, that way, you can talk to the Inspector directly and discuss any issues. However, we do ask that you allow the inspector to conduct his inspection unhindered and save questions until he is finished. This helps to ensure a thorough and uncompromised report.
Do you check the loft and roof? As long as our inspectors are able to gain access, they are areas that we will check.
What is included in the report? The report includes either a building inspection report, a pest inspection report or both. And all in easy-to-understand English.
How soon will I receive my report? You’ll have your report within 24 hours of the completed inspection provided payment has been received, or your money back!
Can I rescind my contract based on your findings? Our condition reports are in accordance with current Australian Standards and are therefore recognised by real estate agents and solicitors. Provided you have special conditions in your contract, RBI’s condition report is known as proof.
What happens after I book an appointment? Our RBI concierge will call to confirm the details of your property. We will dispatch the RBI inspector at your confirmed access time.
