Building and pest inspections have become increasingly important when buying or selling a property on the Gold Coast. Not only do they allow a potential buyer to get a better understanding of the condition of their prospective purchase, but they can also help protect them from hidden issues such as pests, mould or structural damage. A building and pest inspection performed by a qualified professional is an essential part of any Gold Coast real estate transaction.
At Top Dog Pest Control, our team offers comprehensive building and pest inspections for residential and commercial properties in the greater Gold Coast area. We understand how important it is to identify any issues with your property before you make an offer, so we use state-of-the-art equipment coupled with decades of experience to thoroughly inspect your property from top to bottom. By doing this, we can identify any common problems found during building and pest inspections on the Gold Coast.
One of the most common issues that are discovered through building and pest inspections on the Gold Coast is termites. Termites are small insects that feed on wood, paper and other cellulose materials found in buildings. If left unchecked, large infestations can cause significant damage to wooden structures and furnishings within a home or business premises. This can be costly to repair if not identified early enough during a building inspection, so it’s essential that it’s checked thoroughly before committing to a purchase or sale agreement.
Another common issue that is often discovered during building and pest inspections on the Gold Coast is mould growth. Mould thrives in damp areas, such as bathrooms or kitchens where moisture gets trapped in walls and ceilings due to lack of ventilation or improper maintenance over time. Mould spores spread quickly and can cause health risks such as allergies, asthma attacks or respiratory illnesses for those who are exposed over long periods of time; making its detection during a building inspection extremely important.
Finally, one of the most serious issues which may be found during building & pest inspections on the Gold Coast is structural damage caused by weathering or subsidence (shifting soil). Such damage could include cracks in walls or foundations; sagging roofs; leaking pipes; mouldy plasterboards; rotting floorboards; faulty wiring etc., all of which could pose an elevated risk if not inspected correctly by a qualified professional prior to buying/selling.
It’s always recommended that one obtains professional advice prior to investing in any kind of real estate property – be it residential or commercial – especially here on the Gold Coast where humidity levels make certain problems more likely than in other regions of Australia at times throughout the year. Having an experienced building inspector perform thorough visual analysis both inside & outside these premises is key for peace of mind when playing this game with high stakes!
