Comprehensive building house building reports:

In a visual report, the existing condition of the property is described, along with any structural flaws or termite infestations. These problems may have a detrimental effect on the building’s appearance and market value.

Building House Inspections’ inspection report, which contains coloured photos and diagrams, can be 60 to 110 pages long. You can better understand the state of the property you’re planning to purchase thanks to this comprehensive study.

Despite its appearance, the report is not extensive. The report’s images take up a considerable amount of space. But these pictures are significant since they’ll provide you with a better understanding of the property’s flaws, both present and potential. This will make it simpler for you to recognize any problems that may arise after spending a large lot of money.

Advance Tools & Technology

Moisture Meters

Moisture meters are used to detect the presence & levels of moisture within building materials such as wood, drywall, & concrete. These meters help identify areas of potential water damage, leaks, or moisture intrusion, which leads to structural issues or mold growth.


Thermal Camera

A thermal camera, also known as an infrared camera or thermal imaging camera, uses infrared radiation to capture images of heat patterns emitted by objects and surfaces.


A borescope is a flexible tube with a camera and light attached to it. It’s used to visually inspect areas that are difficult to access, such as inside wall cavities, ductwork, or pipes. By inserting the borescope into these areas, our inspectors can examine the condition of hidden components and identify any defects or damages.

Termatrac Device

The Termatrac device is a specialized tool used for termite inspections. It combines radar, moisture, and thermal sensors to detect termite activity and locate their nests or feeding areas.
