Jim’s Building Inspections Ellenbrook – Local and Knowledgeable Service
Purchasing a new home, building a house, or investing in a property is a big decision. It is likely to be the largest financial purchase you will ever make – so ensuring you have all the information you need before finalising that purchase is only common sense.
In Western Australia, pre-purchase building inspections are not compulsory – but if you want to make sure that you are not risking financial and health risks, a building inspection can help you avoid potential problems.
The bust and boom nature of the Australian market has meant that in boom times, property demand outstripped supply – leading to substandard buildings created by unscrupulous builders and construction managers. In addition to this, pest damage, asbestos and poor use can cause defects and damage – and this can be hidden behind ‘band aid’ solutions that can cover up the issue.
Jim’s Building Inspections in Ellenbrook are here to help you learn more about your investment before you spend the money.

Termite Building Inspections in Ellenbrook
The problem of termites can spread fast. Termites and other pests can cause structural damage, and they can often be found in hard to reach places on a property.
Termites might be small, but when they work together, they can cause all sorts of damage. Known for attacks on wooden structures, they can also damage plaster, insulation and even metal. According to the Australian Institute of Architects, an estimated $1 billion is spent to remediate termite damage.
We inspect a property from 150m outside – this means that we can assess any in-ground structures, wood, or dead tree stumps that could be home to a termite’s nest before we look at the property itself.
As we understand the life cycle, habits, and behaviours of the termites, we can use this information to locate the nest – even in hard to reach places. If we find live termites or evidence of termite activity, we can then recommend a Pest Technician from Jim’s Pest Control division to attend and assist.
Our Termite Inspections will also check to ensure that we are mitigating any risks – making the conditions less attractive for infestation (moisture, darkness). We can also understand any termite management plan that might already be in place – when and what was installed, and by whom.
Termites are not the only problem that Jim’s Building Inspections in Ellenbrook can help you find. Whatever the problem with your potential purchase, knowing about it can either make you change your mind, know what you are getting into and have the tools to deal with it – or give you the power to negotiate.

Are you Looking For Building Inspections In Ellenbrook?
Buying a house is a big purchase and, for many people, it will be the biggest purchase they’ll make in life. With such a huge amount of money at stake, it makes perfect sense to make sure the investment is a good one. That’s where building inspections in Ellenbrook comes in. A building inspection carried out by one of our building inspectors will give you the peace of mind that you need before spending your life’s savings on the house of your dreams. After all, building insurance may not cover you if the house had pre-existing defects.
You may be offered building inspection services by your real estate agent or, if you are buying a new build home, the building development company. However, these building inspectors are employed by people who are interested in making a sale and therefore may not identify issues with the building that might slow down or stop the sale from happening. Jim’s Building Inspections has got no interest in whether a particular property sells or not.
Our only concern is that the property you are interested in buying is safe for you and your family to live in and will remain safe for years to come. Our second concern is that the house you are buying is good value for money. The things that can be identified on a building inspection report don’t necessarily mean that you wouldn’t purchase the property; it might just mean that the price you pay for the property should be readjusted to take into account the issues identified.
Common Issues Identified In Building Inspection Reports
Most people would associate a building inspection report with identifying building faults, such as structural issues and the identification of improper building materials. A structural fault can be incredibly costly to try and repair and, in the worst-case scenario, might become equal to the cost of the property. A serious structural fault may even invalidate your home and contents insurance.
Less serious, but still critical issues, might include the presence of asbestos or methamphetamine. Both these substances are no longer approved building materials as they’re dangerous and experts should carry out removal. Termite and timber pest infestations can also be problematic so it’s important to check every corner of the building for tell-tale signs.
