Depending on the time of year, termites hidden within the structure of a wall may be the reason for a temperature variance being detected. In cooler months termite workings are likely to display an area within a structure that is warmer than the area surrounding the termites. In warmer months termite workings are likely to display an area that is cooler than the area surrounding the termites. It is important to note that the variance would require further investigation with a “Termatrac” (Microwave Radar Device) to assess the area for termite movement (activity). This can be carried out without damaging the structure or without the need for removing wall linings or cladding to view the internal area of a wall.
“Bruce’s report yesterday was very positive and comforting especially as I am remote from the property. The owner, assures me that not a single ant escaped detection.”
Phillip Stafford-Gaffney, Sth Coast buyer
“Recently my partner and I were looking to buy a property in Canberra. We inspected many properties and read many building reports. From a buyer’s point of view the most comprehensive and thorough report was the one done by Surety. It was detailed yet easy to read and understand and had images so we could readily see the problem or matter requiring attention.”
