Brett Inspection of a Shower

Brett explains that one of the most important parts of a building inspection is wet areas and especially showers. Showers rank very high on QBCC's insurance claims list as they are vulnerable to leaks over time which can cause major structural issues. Brett shows us that he checks the silicon and makes sure it is intact, especially in the corners. He then runs the shower for 10 minutes as per the Australian Standards and afterwards uses his Tramex (moisture meter) to detect for water damage on all adjacent walls.

So he goes on the lookout to see how good it is.

Termite Inspection Zones

Brett takes 2 minutes to tell us the importance of keeping garden beds and soil away from the slab to prevent concealed access from termites. He quotes the Australian standards that a distance of 75mm must be maintained.


This is just one example of what pest inspectors will be looking at when they inspect your house.
