Whether a residential or commercial property, termites can attack virtually any structure containing timber, with 1 in 4 Australian homes being affected by termites.
with the best
The fact is, termites do more damage to Australian property than fire, storms and earthquakes combined. That’s why your insurance company won’t even provide cover for termite damage, due to the high risk.
It’s important to make sure you’re protected. At Leading Building & Pest Inspections we provide a range of routine termite inspection services to help detect and prevent those nasty little critters from attacking your valuable investment. The Australian Standard 3660.2 2000 recommends all homes receive at least an annual termite inspection and more often in high risk areas.
Our fully trained and professionally insured technicians will search high and low, performing an in-depth termite inspection across internal and external walls, floors, skirting boards, architraves, door frames, ceilings, roof void and garden areas. In most cases we’ll use a high tech thermal imaging camera with inbuilt moisture meter, screwdriver, tapping stick and torch to make sure every nook and cranny is explored. The whole process will take about an hour for most homes. We’ll then provide you with a full written report detailing our findings, and provide advice on how to best protect the building.

Buying our first home was easy after having Leading Building Inspections recommended to us. They came through with everything they had told us over the phone. Meeting us on time and walking through our home, not missing any detail as they looked through all areas of our home. A fully detailed report that night was sent through just like Leading Building Inspections promised they would. Showing us all areas which required immediate attention and other areas which were in perfect order. I will be buying another house in the next few years and I know who my builder inspector will be. Respectful, polite and down to earth and very educated in this industry describes the workers for Leading Building Inspections and I will be recommending there professionalism to many other friends who are also looking to buy a home.

We have used Adam Shaw from Leading Building and Pest Inspections on multiple occasions to conduct pre-purchase and pre-settlement inspections. It is of the upmost importance to us that these inspections are conducted thoroughly, and all defects are accurately reported. Adam’s approach is highly professional, extensive and always exceeds our expectations. The reports provided are comprehensive with pictures attached and are arranged in an easy to read chronological order. Adam also follows up after sending reports to ensure the all information has been understood and can provide clarity and further information on any defects or issues outlined within the report. Adam goes above and beyond for his clients, is highly professional and provides extensive and thorough reports. I strongly recommend Adam for anyone looking for a building inspector.

We have been using leading building and pest for around 2 years now in that time I have found that they always go the extra yard and get the reports to me in a timely manner. We are property investors so it is important that the reports are accurate and on time. I would have no hesitation on referring them to anybody to Leading.
