About the heading Building Inspection Services in Yellow Pages®
Building inspection services are supplied by individuals or organisations which have expert knowledge in building and construction. There are two types of inspections that most individuals and organisations pay a fee to have completed before they purchase a property: a building, property or house inspection; and a pest inspection. These inspections are known as pre purchase inspections. Once the inspections have been completed, the inspection service provider will write up a report which is given to the client.
A building inspection report is different to a pest inspection report. A building inspection is concerned with the safety and structure of a building and a pest inspection is concerned with identifying any pests that are occupying the premises. Pests might include termites, ants, mice and rats. Pest inspectors use a number of tools and visual aids to locate pests. Some pest inspection services use termite sniffer dogs with much success.
As a general rule, when a new home or structure is built and before it can be used, the building inspector must be allowed in to examine it and confirm that the building is safe for use. Building inspector services may specialise in different areas and some may offer additional building and pest inspection services including camera inspections, smoke testing and photographic evidence.
If you are considering buying an established home or building a new home, or a place of business, then you may need building inspection services. These services cover building inspections, home inspections as well as commercial property inspections.
