What is a Timber Pest Report?
A Timber Pest Report will assess whether the property is sound and free of destructive timber pest attack or risk. It will provide a detailed
Report listing all the areas inspected, including:
- Material of construction
- Timber pest activity, if any
- Access issue Location and extent of serious damage.
A Timber Pest Inspection should be combined with a Property Report.
All properties containing structural timbers should have a timber pest inspection annually or even more frequently if it has a history of termite
Who does it?
All Tyrrells Building Consultants have timber pest qualifications. They are able to understand how your building is built and what timber products
are at risk of timber pest damage.
How long does it take?
The time required to do the Timber Pest Inspection can vary between 40 and 80 minutes, depending on the size of the property and the ease of access.
It is better to combine the Timber Pest Report with the Property Report (Combined Property and Timber Pest Report). This enables an extremely detailed
appraisal of any potential pest problems.
Written Reports are available by close of the next business day after the inspection is carried out. For an additional charge an urgent same-day
service can be arranged on request.
Why is a Timber Pest Report necessary?
About one property in twelve will have some major timber pest damage or infestation. About 1 in 200 properties will have termite activity to the
main building timbers. For older buildings with major timber components minimising the risk of timber pest infestation through regular inspections
are key to ensuring your building does not face major termite and rot damage.
Which types of properties are inspected?
Any building with structural or extensive non durable timbers.
