AUSINSPECT Thermal Imaging Camera lets us see where the naked Eye can not see.
Property is a valuable asset, to properly maintain this asset periodic maintenance is essential, the two main causes that effect the value of a property are decay and Structural Pest damage, therefore it should be in your best interest to be fully aware if the property has Structural Pest damage or activity, pest activity can initiate at any time without warning, causing extensive damage that can be expensive to repair.
A Structural Pest Inspection should be carried out to any property in Australia at least once a year.
Our records indicate that the occurrence of finding a history of termites and/or dormant/inactive termite damage and/or current termite activity, within the boundaries of an inspected property is approximately 1 in 3 inspections carried out by AUSINSPECT.
Our records indicate that over 90% of Sydney buildings do not have a periodic termite inspection carried out at least annually in accord with current Australian Standards.
When the time comes to sell a property, it is a huge benfit to have a history of Periodic Pest Inspections, this is evidence of prudent and timely maintenance over time, a well maintained property will always be more attractive when selling.
Late 2011 Ausinspect altered the approach to provision of building reports.
Ausinspect now includes featured video in addition to the written report - this has proved to be a huge success with clients providing positive feedback. (Video is not provided when doing Periodic Pest Inspections/Repeat Pest Inspection for $250)
Video has given the opportunity to provide quality advice in addition to detailing observations made during the inspection, people get to understand a lot more about the building issues observed and therefore can make more informed decisions, it takes out the guesswork of what is meant by certain technical terms and proves that areas have been inspected. Video also gives opportunity to provide ongoing maintenance recommendations in some circumstances, making the inspection report and video a valuable reference to revisit again and again when considering periodic maintenance or alterations etc'.
Communicating the findings of a building inspection is the most important aspect of the inspection/report process, a written report with the addition of featured video gives people a much better understanding, questions related to building matters inspected has dropped dramatically since the introduction of video.
When considering ordering inspection/s one needs to realise that it is important to understand the information provided, Ausinspect has been able to lead the industry in providing comprehensive reports for 20 years, now with the addition of video it has added significant value to our already comprehensive reporting.
A fringe benefit of our new written reports with added video is that the turn around time has dropped significantly with most inspection reports and videos of inspection provided with 2 hours of the completion of the inspection in most cases.
Nice to have positive feedback from a satisfied client:
Just to let you know that I showed your Building and Pest report to my solicitor on Wednesday. He was so impressed he took a photo copy of the front page and your details. Said he had never seen a building report as professional and as well put together as yours. I agreed wholeheartedly.
I just thought you might like to know.
