Pests and cracking
When purchasing a home, you’re making the significant decision to invest your hard earned money into a property. The last thing you want to do is purchase something that is full of costly defects. This is why it is crucial that you invest in a pre-purchase property inspection.
While the streets of Woodville are filled with period charm, these older properties run the risk of being prone to unwanted pests such as termites, as well as foundation movement which can result in cracking.
Because of the suburbs leafy nature, Woodville can appear to be naturally susceptible to housing unwanted pests. When a property is exposed to heavy rain, moisture can settle in the timber within a home’s interior and exterior structure. If left unattended to these costly critters can make their way further into your home, eventually leaving you with an unstable shell. This not only significantly reduces the resale value of the property but can also put your life in danger.
During a standard pre-purchase inspection Detail Building Inspections will identify any presence of termites and acknowledge areas of the property that may prove to be a potential termite haven, which can cause unwanted damage to your new investment.
Our team also understand that with period homes, comes the risk of foundations moving leading to unsafe cracking in the home’s walls, further cementing the importance of getting a building inspection before you sign on the dotted line.
Our Woodville based building inspectors will acknowledge these areas with photographic evidence in your report along with industry recommendations when it comes to needing future repairs.
