I would highly recommend BPI for building and pest inspections. They responded to my enquiry extremely quickly, and were able to book in the inspection within a week, and liaised with the real estate agent for me. Their communication throughout was excellent. Jacob’s inspection was extremely thorough, as was his report, which was also sent to me the next morning (despite the inspection being done late the previous evening). He also offered the opportunity to call with any questions afterwards which I greatly appreciated. I wouldn’t use anyone else for a building and pest inspection.

Outstanding Service by BPI Building and Pest. Very efficient with responding to my enquiry and was happy to answer questions and follow up booking time with agents for access to property..but the main man himself, Jacob is extremely good at what he does.I'm so glad I did my research and chose BPI. Very thorough inspection and took the time to explain his findings at the very end, leaving me comfortable in proceeding with purchase. I will definitely be using Jacob and Rosalee for any future purchases and will 100% be passing on their details to anyone needing a Building and Pest Inspection.Thank you

I knew Jacob had a 5 star rating, I felt that was pretty hard to achieve / maintain. But actually I think it's only a 5 star because 6 isn't an option. Jacob found substantial movement in the property we had our hearts set on, everything was pointing to it being the root cause of moisture issues, abandoned pipes etc. I forgot to mention how quickly BPI were available, it was so fast we had a week to look at relevelling options. I took their advice, spoke to engineers I respect and they said 'run away' from that place. A month later a more solid house for less money came up. Again Jacob was available in days, the team sprang into action to get it done. Happier outcome that time. Great company, so good to deal with, forms and payment was simple, it's a stupidly low price to not get a guy with Jacob's experience involved. Also telling that the real-estate agents respected his thoroughness and independence, although they might resent having to be around for such a thorough inspection. On time, reports ready the next morning, no delay on getting an inspection, plenty of laughs along the way, but a very serious independent assessment that you ignore at your peril.

I recently engaged BPI Building & Pest Inspections Ipswich & Brisbane West to complete a Pest & Building Inspection. I highly recommend this company. Jacob was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He was very meticulous, responsive and professional. He was also very down to earth, spoke no jargon and addressed all queries in layman's terms. I will be using Jacob for future transactions.

BPI Ipswich are the sidekicks everyone needs on their property purchasing journey!Jacob has inspected two properties for me, and I highly recommend. He's punctual, professional and thorough. The detailed reports are sent through quickly, and he's more than welcome to follow them up with a phone call, should you have any questions. Perfect for buyers like myself who aren't building and pest experts!I initially lodged an enquiry on the BPI website, and I was impressed with their communication from day one. Rosalee is incredibly responsive via both email and phone and has kept me up to date throughout the inspection process, booking me in with short turnaround timeframes was no hassle.If you're looking for a building and pest inspection in the area, then BPI Ipswich is the way to go!

I would not use anyone else! I have used BPI for multiple building and pest inspections and Jacob is the most thorough. He has always spent plenty of time in each house and he has saved me thousands of dollars because of his inspections. Rosalie is also an absolute gem and her customer service and communication is out of this world. Do yourself a favour and use BPI.

Jacob at BPI was extremely thorough and with inspecting our property before purchase. Provided detailed report and took time to explain issues with the build and prior renovations. He followed up with us to answer further questions and clarify discussions. We were left feeling really satisfied and confident in quality of the inspection and information about property. I have no hesitation to recommend BPI.

TLDR: Amazing service with all the bells and whistles!! Rosalee is kind and accommodating with scheduling and Jacob brings his expertise and a full toolkit (ladder for the roof, metal proddy thing, moisture meter, thermal imaging camera and probably a few other things) and it’s all included in a very reasonable price - highly HIGHLY recommended!!!Booking process: Great! Quick call for a quote, but very responsive over email. I think the true test for whether a business is good is, how it reacts to less than ideal customers, and I can say with utmost confidence that you will get nothing but pure professionalism, empathy and kindness from RosaleeI’ve been a real pain due to some complications with a property purchase and Rosalee has been so amazing during a really stressful time. Thank you so much Rosalee! Wish you all the very bestInspection: Jacob did an incredibly thorough review, he really took his time and was so, so friendly and approachable. He noticed somewhat difficult to find termite damage and did more than he had to to see whether they were live.Jacob is the kind of inspector I would recommend to a very, very close friend who I cared a lot about - he also knows the area well, is very candid and very approachable.Report: delivered very quickly (next day after a late afternoon inspection) formatted very nicely, reads well and easy to understand with no lazy editing (ie sentences make sense and are grammatical, if you care about that).Overall: I’ve had buildings and pest reports done before and they weren’t bad by any means but BPI Ipswich just outshines everything else.If I need a building and pest inspection again, Jacob, Rosalee and BPI are my absolute first choice. You will not regret choosing them!!!

I have had Jacob conduct pest and building inspections on two occasions now. He has done an extremely thorough job and the comprehensive reports were received very quickly. It was great that he took the time to explain everything onsite so we understood, we found him friendly & professional and would definitely recommend his service.
Had Jacob on site go through the house and explain in great length what we are purchasing, with a positive, friendly and with great knowledge of property history types that show he is the right choice for Building and Pest Inspections.Although nothing major was found in our case,Jacobs very thorough investigation of the property and boundary as well as additional advice on next steps and lite maintenance we need for ongoing happy living in our purchase gave us confidence to continue with the purchase in our new home.
Requested a building inspection "with cause" (suspected ground movement issues), happily, no issues, but now I also have a very comprehensive building inspection report and a list of maintenance items I can organise to protect my rental property from issues later down the road. Jacob, building inspector, very friendly on the phone, gave me a complete debrief of issues found during the inspection and also recommended further actions. Rosalee in the office was very helpful in organising the inspection time and payment. Will be using these guys in 3 years to do a re-inspect to ensure still no ground issues. Highly recommend

I recently used BPI for a pre purchase inspection in Brassall. The entire process was made so simple from initial contact to set up the booking, they took care of the coordinating with the real estate. Jacob called me after the inspection to run through some important issues, the report was incredibly detailed and well laid out. I have no hesitation in recommending BPI to conduct your next Building & Pest Inspection.

Jacob is Fantastic! Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I feel he offers fantastic value, as you can openly talk to him at the inspection to discuss the report outcome basically before you get it... In realistic terms.I've used his services twice and he saved me money in the long run due to good advice. 100% recommend and will use again. 👍🏽

Very impressed with how thorough the inspection was and the attention to detail. Great to have the photo backup to the comments raised in the report. Post inspection debrief was very fair and unbiased which was a great help to us. Will use again and very happy to recommend.
BPI had already come highly recommended from a friend when we decided to use their services and we were not disappointed. Jacob was extremely thorough with his report and more than happy to have a chat to alleviate any concerns we had. He went above and beyond and was friendly and approachable.

Can not recommend Jacob & BPI enough! Showed up on time, very thorough in checks. Even gave us a recap at end what to expect. He was not in a rush & his time/attention to detail what above & beyond. We had a long settlement & Jacob did not hesitate assisting in follow up queries needed to consult him on, where most would have bolted having the money already. Reports are thorough everything addressed with also photo snippets. Do not hesitate to use BPI you will not regret it!!

We booked Jacob from BPI on the strength of these reviews and may I say that we believe that the rating is unfairly limited to 5*s. We found BPI to be fast, efficient, friendly and incredibly detailed. The service is by far and away the best Building and Pest experience I have had and we cannot recommend them enough. With a very fast turn around, excellent communication, thorough investigation and time was taken to explain each issue to my partner (and her father). We had our B&P booked for a Friday and had the lengthy report the following day!In short - if you want a Building and Pest done thoroughly, on time with great communication - don't hesitate and give these guys a call.

Had my building & pest inspection with Jacob last week. The quality of service provided by the BPI team is simply miles ahead of another building and pest inspector I previously had for another property. Jacob was approachable, knowledgeable and was extremely thorough with the inspection. He took the time to walk me through all the intricate details of the inspection at the end. He even went as far as giving me a call the next day to make sure I am all across with the results. Needlessly to say I was very impressed! Shout out to Rosalee at the main office, she was very prompt with her replies and was able to help me work out several conflicting schedules with the owner before settling on a suitable time for me. I will certainly call up BPI again in the near future! :)

I first met Jacob when he did the building and pest inspection of a rental property I was living in. When I bought my own house, I knew I had to use Jacob as he is very thorough and I value his opinion. Rosalee in the head office is also very prompt with her replies and very informative. I would highly recommend BPI Building and Pest and will be using them in the future.

Requires payment upfront, then cancels with 2 hours notice suggesting you find another business or reschedule. Do not voicemail or text their mobile numbers before business hours or you get very unprofessional responses. Hot tempered and rude

    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.
