Professional and Cost-Efficient Building Inspections across Newcastle and the Hunter Valley

A building inspection is an integral part of property maintenance. Whether you own or manage a residential property, building inspection services can help detect existing or potential issues related to safety or structural integrity and pest infestation. Here at Elite Building and Pest Services, we provide numerous varieties of building inspections to our clients in addition to our pest management services.


Pre-Purchase Building Inspections


Our pre-purchase building inspection process involves assessing a residential property to review its current condition to help you make informed decisions about the future of the property as a prospective buyer. We assess the structural integrity of the property, looking for potential issues including damage, cracks, mould, rust, rotting timber, and structural defects, both minor and major as well as safety hazards. Our thorough building inspection report details the findings to you in a concise and logical manner and is conducted in line with Australian Standard AS 4349.1.

At Elite, our pre-purchase building inspections are conducted by qualified and experienced inspectors who have worked in the building inspection industry for many years. This means we can stand by the quality, thoroughness, and attention to detail of our inspectors for your complete peace of mind.

Our standard pre-purchase timber pest inspection involves assessing the property’s conducive environments for the presence of timber pests, identifying potential defects and structural integrities caused by timber pest attacks by visual and non invasive assessments and comparing the property to similar offerings to ensure that pest mitigation strategies have been appropriately upheld in accordance with Australian Building Standards. The homes internal rooms, sub-floor space, roof void and areas around the dwelling are all thoroughly checked for damage and a report is prepared, so that you have the full picture of what you’re purchasing before signing contracts. Our pre-purchase timber pest inspection reports are delivered to you within 24 hours of the inspection and are completed in line with AS 4349.3.

Thermal Imaging Inspections

Here at Elite, our inspectors utilise the latest technologies to give you the best results for your next building inspection. This includes the use of moisture and thermal imaging cameras and termite radar devices to specifically detect faults, moisture, termites, and structural defects within the home. These cannot be detected by the naked eye and if not identified, can be a costly outlay for you and your family.

Our experienced inspectors take thorough readings using our moisture and thermal cameras and can actively identify the extent of certain defects and propose strategies for repair or maintenance.

As appealing as a home may be, utilising our thermal imaging inspection services means that we provide peace of mind for you and your family by identifying faults that would not otherwise be possible to see by normal human vision.
