Some termite inspection costs in Sydney can be quite absorbent. Companies that have performed pre-construction treatments will tend to hold homeowners to ransom.
They do this by stating that if you do not have an annual inspection with them then you will void you warranty.
The funny part is that most house warranties have already been voided by breaches. Render over the slab edge, decking, garden beds in fact anything that breaches it will void warranties.
Jim’s termite inspection costs guide
A good termite inspection should not be measured on how much it costs. An expensive or a cheap inspection that only takes 15 mins to complete will be a poor inspection. It is likely to cost you more that you think if termites are missed.
Inspections should be measured on how long the technician is on site. On average an inspection on a normal size Sydney home should take between 1 and 1.5 hours. This does not take into consideration the time in writing the report.
A good inspector can demand between $200 to $300 per hour. Often the more experience inspectors are in high demand and may even charge more.
In the case of units then obviously the time will be quicker and hence the cost will be less.
Where should they inspect?
On any inspection there are several areas that a good inspector will want to inspect. These areas will include:
- Trees and timber structures in the street up to 50 meters from building
- Electric meter box
- Base of the building
- Front and back yards
- All internal walls
- Inside cupboards
- Wet areas like bathrooms
- Roof void
- Trees and timbers
There may be other areas that they may like to inspect that will be specific to your property.
