Elder Court, Paralowie – Termites Detected!

A recent inspection to a home in Paralowie revealed termite damage to the internal walls as well as the roof framing. The first sign that was something may have been wrong was the termite workings located in the nearby trees surrounding the home. Just as well this client opted to have a combined building and pest inspection which covers all potentials. Part of the pest inspection is to “knock test” walls when they are brick veneer. This can reveal termite workings inside the wall as you can hear “mud” falling off the framing.

As we entered the roof, we also detected termite damage to ceiling joists saving the client potentially thousands!

Having an inspection prior to purchase should be part of the buying process.
