Building and Pest Inspection Adelaide

For many people, buying the family home is the most significant purchase you ever make, something that we at RBI are well aware of. We’ll help you to make an informed decision about your dream property by providing you with the full benefit of our extensive professional experience.
Our reports are prepared according to strict Australian Standards guidelines, and as such are recognised by solicitors and estate agents nationwide. We’ll make certain that you have the confidence to buy knowing that your decision is built on solid foundations.
Our detailed reports, based on years of experience, could help you to avoid getting caught in a bad deal that could cost you dear in future repairs. How do we do all of this for you? Simple…

House Inspections Adelaide

It’s always wise to back up an important decision like a house purchase with the opinion of an expert, however much your heart and the real estate tell you how beautiful it is. As a layman, it’s not easy to see the tell-tale signs that point to rotten frames or pest activity lurking behind a fresh lick of paint.
Our inspectors are trained in the building trade and can draw your attention to parts of the building that may need repairs costing you a small fortune in the coming months or years.
We’ll cast a keen, professional eye over the property, looking for signs of an attempt to hide damage or deterioration. Armed not only with an inspector’s ladder, torch and other traditional kit, but also cutting-edge electronic detectors to inspect all readily accessible areas in house and to keep you back covered.

If necessary, areas like wall and floor cavities can be checked using moisture sensors as well as radar technology. Don’t worry, though, this comes to you at no extra cost – the price we quote when you book your inspection is the price you pay.


Pest Inspection Adelaide

There was a time when a pest inspection in Adelaide meant invasive disruption of the property, ripping out sections of wall, drilling holes, etc. These invasive and destructive methods, however thorough they may look, still miss deep-seated termite nests within the structure. Our highly-trained inspectors will not leave a single mark on the property, instead using cutting-edge technology to detect the presence of pests.

RBI inspectors can go over the entire property using radar technology as though they could see through walls.


Property Inspections Adelaide

We’ve said it already but it’s always worth saying it again: Our pre-purchase building and pest reports are written in layman’s English, and prepared according to Australian Standards (AS 4349.1-2007 and AS 4349.3). We will identify for you any areas of the property that could be subject to the need for expensive repairs and any safety concerns. We’ll also provide full-colour photographs highlighting where the safety hazards and defects are – for you, nothing could be simpler.

What Our Recent Customers Say About Our Inspections
Why Choose Rapid Building inspections?

Guaranteed Expert Building Inspectors

While training is great, nothing beats industry experience. Every inspector is a trade expert and qualified building and pest inspector. Which means they’ll be able to spot issues less experienced inspectors could miss.

Latest Technology in Adelaide

Our expert RBI inspectors all use the Termatrac T31 and Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus. These devices can precisely detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites without needing to physically penetrate any walls, floors or ceilings and more importantly, it won’t disrupt or displace termite activity.
Termatrac Radar (Pest Inspections)
Using a calibrated radar signal, this device can identify termites through timber, brick, masonry, concrete, plasterboard, plastic and other common building materials. No more holes in walls, and no need for tapping or prodding. And because the termites aren’t disturbed, they remain active for easy and accurate detection by the Termatrac Termite Detection Radar.
Termatrac Moisture Sensor (Property Inspections)
The moisture sensor built into the ‘Termatrac T3i’ hand-held unit can measure and record differential moisture levels in building materials without damaging them. It can identify potential termite risk areas by the concentrated presence of moisture in most surfaces including wood, plasterboard, roofing, plastic, brick and concrete.
Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus (Pre-Purchase Inspections)
Our inspectors all carry the ‘Tramex Moisture Encounter plus (MEP)’. It is a non-invasive overall building inspection moisture meter. It’s fast, precise and versatile! It can measure and evaluate moisture levels through paint, wall coatings, plasterboard, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, roof coverings and ceilings.
