Building defects can range from structural cracking in buildings, leaking showers, water ingress to buildings, rising dampness, condensation mould, sagging in roof framework, deterioration of mortar to brickwork, ventilation to sub-floor areas, efflorescence and deteriorated roof membranes.

Pest activity and damage is encountered in 1 in every 4 homes, according to State Forestry research. Shield carries out visual timber pest inspection reports under the strict guidelines of Australian Standards and reports on visual termite activity, termite damage, borers and timber decay.

The inspector will also highlight any areas of concern or any conducive conditions that may allow Termite attack and offer advice on reducing
