Benefits of Termite Inspection Report

Many Australian homes and buildings do not currently have a termite barrier in place. Does yours? It is critical that a professional Termite Inspection is carried out on any Hobart property you are considering purchasing. The annual value of accrued termite damage exceeds that of floods, storm and fires throughout Australia each year (combined).

With this in mind, the majority of Australian homeowners are unaware that the average household insurance policy does not accommodate for termite damage. This means that all costs relating to treatment and the repair of termite damage is the responsibility of the owner.

To arrange a quote or a Termite Inspection for a property in Hobart, call Jim’s Building Inspections on 131546.

Or book your Termite Inspection service online. Remember, reports can be delivered within 24 hours of inspection. We urge you NOT to buy a property without one.
