Why get a Building and Pest Inspection

Some of the worst defects can be hard to see, or easy to conceal.

A Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection with OneHome Inspections is vital to help you understand what problems a property may have before you buy it. Imagine moving into your new home and discovering the upstairs shower leaks into the rooms below, the timber deck is decayed and in danger of collapse, the timber floors have been infested with termites and require complete replacement or the building is structurally inadequate and requires underpinning.

These problems and hundreds of others are very common in homes of all ages and can cost tens of thousands to fix.

A Building report will empower your negotiations and help eliminate risk.

Statistics from the CSIRO indicate that one in three houses in Brisbane have some form of termite damage with the city ranked as one of Australia’s highest at risk for Termite attack to homes.
