    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who coordinates my building and pest inspection appointment?

    At BPI Ipswich, we take care of scheduling your inspection by coordinating with current tenants, agents, or sellers to secure access to the property.

    Is a building and pest inspection always necessary?

    Investing a few hundred dollars in a combined building and pest inspection can provide you with peace of mind that the property you’re purchasing is structurally sound and free from damaging pests. The inspection can also help you negotiate the sale price if costly repairs are required.
    For sellers, an inspection ensures that your property is in good condition, preventing surprises when the buyer conducts their inspection.

    How many inspectors will examine the house?

    Typically, one inspector will handle the inspection. However, there may be an assistant working alongside the inspector in some cases.

    Do you inspect the roof void?

    Absolutely. We will inspect the roof void if it’s easily accessible and safe to enter. If our inspector deems the roof void unsafe, alternative methods will be used, such as a visual inspection from the manhole or an exterior roof examination. The report will clearly indicate how the roof void was inspected and any obstacles encountered.

    Do I need a timber pest inspection for a concrete slab property?

    Yes, a timber pest inspection is crucial for properties with concrete slabs since there’s no subfloor for the inspector to assess. Termites can access timber structures through small gaps in the concrete (e.g., around pipes, electrical cables, or covered weep holes).

    Should I get a building and pest inspection for a steel-framed house?

    Yes, steel-framed houses still contain several timber elements, such as doors, cabinets, and window frames, all of which are susceptible to termite infestations. Additionally, the building inspection can identify any unsatisfactory structural aspects of the house.

    How long does an inspection take?

    A combined building and pest inspection typically takes between 60 and 90 minutes. The duration depends on factors such as the property’s size, inspection challenges, and the age of the house.

    Do you utilise thermal imaging/infrared cameras?

    Yes, we use thermal imaging to detect issues not visible to the naked eye, such as water leaks or termite infestations.

    How can I request a building and pest inspection quote?

    Please contact us at 0420 558 955 for a quote or fill out our online form.

    What experience do your inspectors possess?

    Jacob McKechnie, a fully licensed and insured building and pest inspector, has undergone rigorous training and examinations to become a qualified building and pest inspector. He has over 20 years of experience in the building industry and has completed thousands of reports.

    When will I receive my building inspection report?

    You will receive your building inspection report within 24 hours of the inspection.
