Buying your new home is one of the most important investments you will make in your lifetime. Unfortunately you never know if you have a termite problem. Termites can cause over millions of damage across Adelaide every year with studies indicating that as many as 1 in 3 Australian homes have termites in their garden. So how do you know you’re not buying a house full of termites?
At Detail Building Inspections, we provide you with a specialised Pre Purchase Pest Inspection Adelaide service dedicated to new property purchases ensuring you don’t end up buying termites.
How does our service differ from your standard pest inspection?
