why get a pest inspection?

Are you concerned about termites, borers or wood rot that might be causing damage to your property? Are you purchasing a property and have heard whispers of termites being active in the area? Are you looking to purchase a home on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane or Gympie? Have you got timber that is deteriorating and unsure why? Do you know if the property has a termite barrier in place and whether it has been maintained or not?


We aim to help you answer all of these questions when conducting a pest inspection on the Sunshine Coast. Not only are we investigating for any current timber pest activity, we are also reporting on how you can help prevent any future timber pest attacks.


Our pest inspections identify areas that need to be rectified to ensure the future integrity of the home. This can include identifying current termite protection and management system installation, identification of any live termites, evidence of termite workings, or any areas with conducive conditions that may result in future termite infestation and nesting. We pay particular attention to wet areas, areas of high moisture, or water leaks, as these often present as the most inviting areas for termites to make themselves at home. You can be sure when using Informed Building Inspections, you are receiving the most thorough report with the best quality in care and service to protect your home.

We provide detailed reporting identifying all termite and timber pest related defects within the property, conducive conditions, and identify whether protection is in place and up to warranty or needs to be installed. Our Pest Inspection reports include thorough overviews of the findings as well as photos with annexures containing comments and recommendations for further investigation. 

If you worried about your home or you are purchasing a new home in Noosa, Buderim, Caloundra or anywhere else on the coast, simply contact us to book your pest inspection.

Trusted advice that comes from quality equipment and experience

We complete each Building and Pest Inspection using the most accurate and non-invasive equipment and techniques to ensure that you can purchase your property with confidence. One piece of equipment we carry is the Termatrac T3i All Sensor which uses radar, moisture or thermal detection. The unique 3-in-1 design incorporates Termatrac’s patented radar technology, relative and direct moisture sensor as well as a thermal sensor for extra confidence. The T3i All Sensor was designed to help operators locate, confirm and track the presence and extent of termite and other pest activity. We use this equipment throughout the property to inspect accessible areas such as walls, floors, and ceilings for timber pests, leaks or potential excess and unexplained moisture.

The Tramex Moisture Meter provides an instant and accurate moisture reading to surfaces such as cabinetry, drywall, plaster and masonry. This non-invasive equipment provides a detailed understanding of any surfaces within the property that require further investigation. If a high moisture reading is identified your inspection report will detail the pin point location/s where high moisture has been observed and recommend appropriate trades. 

Our Thermal Imaging Camera is the perfect tool for identifying where water leaks are occurring and what may be causing the water ingress. This powerful device converts thermal imaging into a picture.

These pieces of equipment act as an important tool to assist in the understanding of what is occurring beyond what is obvious to the naked eye. Scott is highly trained and has extensive experience in using all equipment detailed above. If you have particular areas of concern please contact us to arrange an inspection.
