In selling your home, you are bound by a number of ethical obligations to prospective purchasers. One such obligation is that to ensure that the home you are selling is in a liveable condition, with no undisclosed structural or pest related impediments. Some contracts involved in the sale of houses even impose duties of this nature upon vendors and organising a pest and building inspection is a convenient and effective way in which to fulfil you contractual and ethical obligations. Additionally, the value of your home has the capacity to improve markedly with an assurance that it is structurally sound and free of any unwelcome inhabitants.

Benefits Of Using A Building And Pest Inspection Gold Coast Professional
Building inspections and pest inspections are two distinct examinations – both of which are aimed at uncovering separate issues. What many of these inspectors fail to realise however, is that quite often the issues that are consequent of pest infestations and structural damage or inconsistencies are somewhat connected. For example, a Gold Coast termite invasion in a home with timber fittings or foundations will invariably result in the types of damage that are uncovered by building inspectors – a typical homeowner would pursue a building inspection upon uncovering a pest issue of this nature. At Pegasus Environmental, we have recognised this and in an effort to ensure the best, most convenient outcome, we have combined these two inspections and made them available to our valued customers. Outlined below, are some of the many instances in which a pest and building inspection would be prudent.
#2 Buying a house
Unfortunately, you are not always guaranteed that the condition of a home or property is ideal and to an untrained eye, there are many indicators of suboptimal pest management or building condition that might go unnoticed. In such instances, you stand to lose a considerable amount of money – particularly where you might have paid an unreasonably high price for the property, or been faced with the cost of addressing structural shortcomings or pest related issues subsequent thereto. It is advisable therefor, that you take active steps to ensure that your purchase is not an unreasonable financial burden. Our Gold Coast building and pest inspections are a useful tool in safeguarding yourself against unscrupulous vendors and achieving the best possible outcome for you, your family and your investment.
#3 Maintaining a property
It is a common misconception that pest and building inspections are only applicable when buying or selling a property. In fact, the contrary is true and it is suggested that these inspections be conducted on an annual or even biannual basis, depending upon the area in which you live. Some pests are capable of infesting a property in a very short period of time and inflicting irreparable damage upon a home and its foundations – in more extreme instances this can occur in a matter of months. Even a small number of pests have the capacity to damage electrical fittings or other such internal features and this can be hazardous. At Pegasus Environmental, our Gold Coast pest and building inspections will identify all of these and more, providing you with a detailed report of your home’s condition, as well as the presence of any pest species we uncover.
The Pegasus Pest And Building Inspection Gold Coast Advantage
As with any service, not all pest or building inspections are conducted with the same quality and diligence. Here at Pegasus Pest Control, we seek to provide you with the most effective and useful pest and building inspections in the Gold Coast region. We do this by offering a number of features that are not offered by many of our competitors and some of these distinguishing features are listed below.
#1 Two experienced inspectors
Unlike many of our competitors, we at Pegasus Environmental conduct our Gold Coast pest and building inspections by means of two highly adept inspectors with combined experience that is in excess of forty years. By having a fulling qualified building inspector Gold Coast AND a professional Gold Coast pest inspector, we're able to offer considerably more attention to detail and a subsequently more thorough and meticulous report. Our inspectors are locals of Burleigh and Tweed Heads, so we're literally around the corner! If there is any issue with the foundations, fittings or any other relevant aspect of your home, it will be investigated and diagnosed accurately, as will the presence of any pests within your home or property.
#2 State of the art technology
Not only do our pest and building inspectors Gold Coast have a wealth of knowledge and expertise, they also have access to the most advanced technological instruments, which allow them to detect and examine areas of concern that remain unnoticed by our competitors. This technology includes thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, termatrac microwave radar detection units and Heinemann boroscopes. The thermal imaging camera allows us to reveal termite nests, damaged framework, live activity and potentially over heating power points, whilst our moisture meters allow us to detect areas of high moisture to which termites may be attracted. Additionally, our termatrac microwave radar detection units track live termite movements and our Heinemann boroscopes provide us with images from within your walls and visually confirm pest activity, damage or any other such anomalies. When coupled with the insight of our inspectors, this equipment enables us to investigate every possible avenue through which your home could be affected.
#3 Detailed written reports
Following our stringent inspections we offer our clients a detailed report, in writing, of our findings. This is issued within twenty-four hours (overnight) by email and hardcopy. All timber pest reports and building reports comply with the relevant Australian standards. We can assure you that our inspectors do their upmost to precisely and accurately diagnose any issues at the time of inspection. We understand the importance of this to our customers and we acknowledge the potential for our reports to have some bearing on your decision to sell or purchase a property. It is with this in mind that our reports are written.

Building And Pest Inspections Gold Coast - Why Bother?!
Building and pest inspections are vital in maintaining an extensive knowledge of your home’s condition and the presence of any pests in your living space or the living space of a home you wish to purchase. Pest can inflict immeasurable damage on any building and quite often, they will be undetected until it is too late. To remain on top of such issues, we advise annual or biannual inspections – depending on where your property is situated. Our inspections cover the typical areas in which damage or pests may be present, as well as the areas in which such factors might be more hidden. We cover the exterior and interior of your home, including roof voids, subfloors, fences, retaining walls and even tree stumps. This is all necessary to ensure that your home or business is in optimum condition and pest and building inspections are a prudent undertaking when purchasing or selling a house – they effectively safeguard your investment against any unforeseen issues.
