Building and Pest Inspection Brisbane Southside

Professional advice to help you buy a property with confidence 

At Trimax Building Inspections we never forget that buying a new home or property is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make. That’s why it’s so important that you get the most accurate information possible before you commit.

Even though a building and pest inspection is perhaps a standard requirement of your sales contract, it’s still worth taking the time to choose an experienced building inspector who can give you the insight you need.

With more than two decades’ experience in the building industry, we’re fully insured and individually QBCC licensed. We don’t work for the vendor or the real estate agent. As an independent building inspector we work for you, giving you the benefit of our unbiased expert opinion. We’ll act as your impartial assessor of the condition of the property.

With Trimax Building Inspections you’ll have the peace-of-mind of a detailed yet understandable report that will help you make the right decision.

Get a building and pest inspection report you understand

Within 24 hours of your inspection, we’ll supply you with an individualised, custom report that’s tailored to your needs.

We’ll write our report in terms that you will understand, even if you have no experience in the building or property buying industry. We don’t baffle you with jargon!

Your detailed building report will feature many photos so you can see exactly what we’re reporting on. We’ll supply supporting evidence and offer you our expert recommendations to help you make an informed decision about the property.

What’s more, you won’t just get an emailed report and be left to figure things out yourself. We’ll be happy to walk you through what we’ve found, and outline any areas you need to be aware of.

Importantly, we’ll keep your report confidential, sharing the results only with you. That way you can use the information we provide as a negotiation tool with your vendor if there are any items that need to be addressed.

Our aim is to give you a full and accurate understanding of the condition of your potential new home – both good and bad – so that you can move forward with your home purchase with absolute confidence.

Independent Building Inspector Firm

Unlike some of the larger building inspection companies you might find in Brisbane, at Trimax Building Inspections you’ll have an experienced operator to carry out your inspection.

To ensure our absolute quality, we are proud to be an independent building inspector firm. We’re not a franchise operation, and we don’t use contractors. Trimax’s building inspectors are fully insured and personally licensed with the QBCC.

Our principal and senior inspector Glenn Rohde brings 20 years of experience in the building industry. He knows the critical areas to take note of when inspecting a property – and he’s always happy to share his knowledge with you.

It gives you real peace-of-mind, knowing that your report will be comprehensive and give you the true picture of the property you’re thinking of buying.

Building Inspections Brisbane South: What’s included

When we’ve finished inspecting the property, we’ll try our best to get back to you with a detailed report either immediately or within 24 hours.

Your report from the building inspection will include:

  • Images of the property are provided so you can see what we’ve discovered and are discussing.
  • A report on the interior, exterior, subfloor, and roof outside conditions as well as the roof void’s accessible conditions (if safety permits according to WorkCover Queensland).
  • A building inspection report carried out in accordance with Australian Standard AS4349 1 – 2007.
  • TERMATRAC –  Hand held device (Moisture, Radar and Thermal Sensors) to detect if there is any pest activity.
  • Advice regarding the property’s condition as of the inspection date and time.
    It is important to keep in mind that a building and pest inspection is merely a visual inspection and not a warranty, insurance policy, or guarantee. After all, certain issues could not become apparent until after a person moves in or until the residence is empty.

What a building and pest inspection does, is provide you with an expert look at the fundamentals of the home before you commit to buy.

Why you should think about a building inspection before you sell your home

When you’re selling your property, it’s a great time to get on the front foot and arrange a building and pest inspection of your own home yourself.

That way you’ll be fully aware of any possible issues with your home, and you can choose to have them addressed before you go to market to achieve the best possible sale price.

It’s the difference between entering a sales negotiation with all the info you need, and potentially being caught out by issues your buyer’s building inspector finds.
