The condition of the timber or steel structure, the underside of the roof and the insulation material in the roof must be checked for any visual evidence of leaks or white/borer ant activity.
What to look for:
Who to contact:
If you detect any cracks, sagging or evidence of decay or corrosion contact a licensed builder. If you detect any evidence of white ant/borer activity contact a licensed pest controller for an inspection. It is always advisable to obtain a full pest inspection report prior to purchasing a property.
Just remember that the condition of the roof is only one of the numerous areas of a house that needs to be checked before buying or selling – the easiest way to do this is by purchasing a Building & Pest Inspection Report.
