The area has had major regional growth and development, which is expected to continue to 2041, second only to Brisbane in the state. The city is also known for its cultural diversity, with around one-quarter of Logan’s residents born overseas.

Before purchasing a home or investment property, it is important before finalising any purchase you undertake a building and pest inspection to ensure your home is free of safety hazards, major defects and termites. While from the outside it may look like it is in good condition, it may actually have issues. We recommend getting a comprehensive pre-purchase Building and Pest Inspection to carefully check out the property.
Every year almost 180,000 Australian homes are affected by termite damage and as a result, the annual cost of termite damage repairs amounts to over a billion dollars. In the case that we record issues with your property, it may be worth terminating your contract or negotiating a price with the owner. Our team at Building and Pest Inspection Logan have assisted both new home buyers and experienced home buyers from ending up with properties that were overvalued or damaged due to termites and hazards.
When choosing an inspector, it is recommended you look for an experienced QBCC registered builder that will give you a competitive report. An inspector with a lack of experience or qualifications will likely fail to do important tasks which can give insight into if your house has damage or pests. At Building and Pest Inspection Logan we will provide you with a detailed report that comes with photos, so you can see any major or minor defects. Buying a property whether it’s your first or your twentieth, is a huge financial investment, one that you should never cut corners with. By getting a building and pest inspector to check your property, you can purchase your home with peace of mind.

With over 10 years of experience, knowledge and state-of-the-art tools, we will carefully check for moisture problems inside the wall cavities, around doors, windows, ceilings, bathrooms, kitchen and laundry. The root cause of more than 80% of money spent maintaining properties relates to moisture problems. This includes termite damage repairs as termites are extremely attracted to moist timber.
Major defects we find generally fall into these categories:
For pest inspections, our team will do a full visual inspection to Australian standards 4349.3, equipped with the latest Termite Detection Technology. After we have done a comprehensive inspection of the building, we will then benchmark the defects found at the property you’re looking to purchase with other properties that are similar.
