Pest Inspection Perth
Timber pests can quickly become an expensive problem if not treated effectively – and finding out the extent of the problem is the first step in ensuring that you can get ahead of it.
Protect Your Property with a Timber Pest Inspection Report.
Jim’s Building Inspections Perth offer a comprehensive timber pest inspection report that covers every aspect of your property so that you can remedy any problems as soon as they arise. We are part of the largest building inspections group in the whole of Australia, with more than 130 inspectors completing over 5,000 inspections every month.
We have a range of experts on hand, all with extensive knowledge of property – so choose Jim’s Building Inspections Perth to make sure that your home remains safe from timber pests and termites.
Termite Damage – The Real Cost
Termites and timber pests can spread fast and cause structural damage if left unchecked. According to the CSIRO, 1 in 5 properties will be affected by timber pests and termites, and they cause more damage than flood, fire and storms combined. It is estimated by the Australian Institute of Architects that termite damage will cost more than $1bn to remediate.
What this means for you, personally, depends on your situation. Without a detailed inspection, it is difficult to understand the extent of the problem – but if damage has been caused, it might not be covered under your insurance. The average cost of termite damage remediation is about $10,000 – and that is without treatment costs.
Our specialist teams understand the habits and behaviours of the pests most likely to be found in buildings – so we know where to look to locate the nest. We know about the types of termites that cause a problem in Perth and the wider WA area, which include coptotermes, heterotermes and nasutitermes.
During the inspection, we look for the areas that we know termites love – any in-ground structural timbers, dead tree stumps, leaf piles and other moist places are a good start. We always begin our inspections about 150m around the property and are fully trained and fully insured to inspect the hard-to-reach places.
We look for live termites and evidence of termite activity – and if we find anything, we will provide a full report, including a management plan and advice on treatment. We are lucky to be able to work closely with our Pest Control division, which includes Termidor accredited operatives that can provide simple and effective treatment to not only deal with the problem but prevent it coming back.
