What a timber pest inspection involves

If you own a property that has timber stumps, beams, cladding, or decking then it’s important to not only check for termites but also periodically check for dry rot/woodrot and woodborers. If left unchecked, the first you might know you have a problem is when your deck or pergola collapses or when you step through the timber steps.

When we inspect for Timber Pests we check for;

  • Current termite activity
  • Past history of termites
  • Extent of damage caused by termites
  • Dry rot or Woodrot in timbers
  • Conducive conditions like a leaking shower
  • Dampness under and around the house
  • Any damage by wood boring beetles
  • Safety concerns caused by timber pests

We are experts in timber pest detection and advice

  • We use specialised technology like Termatrac & Thermal Imagers to assist us to find activity that the human eye can’t detect.
  • Our inspectors have combined experience of more than 20 years, are licensed, fully insured, good communicators and professional.

We are not only termite specialists but are also building consultants. This is important because we understand buildings and how termites can affect a building structure. We can provide advice on structural integrity issues and the best way forward to correct any damage. Most Pest Managers don’t have a background in building.

The most important thing you can do is to be diligent in managing your property which involves regular inspections.  You don’t need to be afraid you just need to have a regular inspection and stay on top of avoiding a potential large expense. You are probably aware that termite damage is not covered by your home insurance.

We can perform a full Timber Pest inspection from only $416 and you can have the answers about your home’s structural health on the day.

“Really good communication around service for pest inspection and appointment time. Technician arrived on time, well-presented, friendly and informative.Probably a little expensive but then what price can you put on peace of mind.”

Jenny, Timber Pest Client, Canberra

“Thank you again for everything you’ve done to help us, and for your understanding and patience with the constant rescheduling. And a big thank you to Brendan for taking the time to explain everything to us – I honestly could’ve listened to him all day long!
When I started looking for a property inspection company, I asked everyone I could think of, then went on Google and did some homework. We narrowed it down to three companies, and I called you first because 1.) you had the best reviews and 2.) the sample report was very impressive.

That first conversation I had with you set the standard for the rest of the bunch. You took the time to listen and discuss what we were looking for and what our concerns were, which no one else did. In fact, I only rang one other company and quickly decided I wasn’t even going to waste my time ringing the third as I’d already made up my mind.

In terms of price, while Surety charges more than others, I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for. The inspection and report were absolutely worth every dollar (and probably more). Brendan picked up on issues we never even thought of, and not only detailed them with photos, but got our builder to agree to fix them with no argument. That was particularly impressive, especially considering the builder. And the report – no one else puts that level of effort into their reports. Surety’s reports should be an industry standard.

Again, thank you so very much for everything, and we wish you and Brendan all the best. Next time we buy (not build, learned that lesson), we’re coming straight to Surety again, absolutely no question about that.”

New Construction Handover Client

Peace of mind to get an independent building inspection for our property and boy did Surety Property deliver. The report was very in depth and was explained with all our queries answered. Just an absolute pleasure to do business with from start to end. Thank you Surety Team.
