Our Inspection Services

Comprehensive building inspections and reports – 24 hr turnaround!

Building and pest inspection reports are a vital part of buying a home. Buildings can look good on the surface, but appearances are sometimes only skin deep.

Getting a professional inspection and report offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Identifying damage before it gets worse
  • More accurately understanding the value of the property
  • Knowing what problem areas to look out for in future
  • Being better informed means having better bargaining power

We’re more thorough than most. While other inspection services will come round and do a quick once-over, we limit the number of appointments we take so we can be sure to cover every last corner of your home in fastidious detail.

At Toowoomba House Inspections, we do it all. You’re welcome to meet us on-site for the inspection, or you can simply sit back and wait for your report – delivered within 24 hours!
