Building and Pest Inspection – Subfloor
May 24 2012
Another reason to get a building and pest inspection…. Sub-floors within houses provide a wealth of information which is useful to prospective buyers. The sub-floor can reveal any moisture related problems such as leaking wet areas (bathrooms, kitchens, laundries), site drainage issues, lack of adequate structural support or subsiding piers/footings as well as evidence of termite entry, wood rot and mortar decay. The subfloor is where much of the plumbing and electrical services can be found. Inspecting the subfloor usually reveals the true state a house is in, and it is crucial this area is thoroughly inspected. During a Building and Pest Inspection we thoroughly inspect and assess the subfloor. You never know what we will come across in the subfloor.
