Before the storm and rain season begins, building inspection covering both outside and inside the home should be a priority. The potential of roof or gutter deteriorating due to storm or rain is not something you should ever take lightly. Throughout rain or storm season, your house is continually at the clemency of powerful winds and rain.
During the Queensland rainy season, we are not the only ones looking for shelter. Building inspections identify building defects and problems that impact your home and present you with a complete report about your property. Termites, ants, and other larger pest are looking to keep warm and dry. The last thing you want is structural damage as well as a pest infestation. A complete building and pest inspection will discover if you and your family are really alone in your home.
For numerous building owners, the rain season implies many problems. From roof leaks to flood and lightning, the rain season carries with it a range of provocations.

- Tie down any loose objects outside your property.
