Buying a new home is an exciting time for anybody. However, it’s sometimes easy to get caught up in the excitement and overlook potential problems that may not always been seen by the naked eye.
Buying your dream home is one of the most important investments you can make. Not only is it a huge financial investment, but you want a comfortable home that’s free of problems. Nobody wants to move into a home, only to find cracks start appearing within a few months (figuratively and literally).
Even the most beautiful homes can be hiding nasty pest infestations, timber damage, or structural issues that put your investment at risk. The very best way to minimise this risk is by performing a professional pre-purchase building and pest inspection with the help of KTS Building and Pest if you’re on the Gold Coast!
Imagine buying your new home, only to find in a year that you’ve got timber rotting away in your roof cavity. Or there’s a termite infestation in your walls, eating away at the structural integrity of your home.
In some cases, it may even be the very foundations that the house is built on that suffers from moisture problems too. None of these are appealing scenarios and they can be extremely expensive to repair, turning your dream home into more of a financial nightmare.
They’re completely avoidable with our pre-purchase building and pest inspections on the Gold Coast. A small expense before you buy can save you thousands of dollars wasted down the track and with KTS Building and Pest, we’ll make sure that’s not the case!
All of our reports are fully comprehensive and comply with Australian standards. When buying a new home, it’s important to have a detailed inspection report that makes sense to you, your solicitor, and the real-estate agent.
We report on and photograph any major or minor defects we find. We also provide an extensive pest report summary, detailing any prior or current attacks, as well as a risk analysis for future issues should there be any.
We use radar technology, thermal imaging and moisture sensors to check every inch of your new home for damage and risk. It’s a non-invasive process but tells us more than we could ever see with the naked eye.
Even the best visual inspection can’t see behind walls and under the floor, but our advanced technology certainly can.
It’s not just technology on our side though. Our inspectors are expert trade professionals with over 25 years in the building industry and they’re extremely skilled at noticing any attempts to hide damage or unnatural deterioration around the home. Both inside and out, they’ll find any red flags that could compromise your purchase.
