BUILDING INSPECTION EQUIPMENT:

BUILDING INSPECTION EQUIPMENT

Slide 2:

We use the most up to date equipment when inspecting a premises. Inspectors use many types of equipment because their use allows us to identify unacceptable conditions that cannot be identified visually .

Slide 3:

Some types of equipment are used because they make the inspections easier or faster for the inspector. Here are some examples of the equipment we commonly use at Inspect East.

TERMATRAC – Radar Detection:

TERMATRAC – Radar Detection

Slide 5:

– Accurate Detection and Confirmation of Termites – Radar signals specially calibrated to identify termites . – Detect termites through timber, brick, masonry, concrete, plasterboard or drywall, plastic, plus many other common building materials (limitations do apply ).

Slide 6:

– Easily determine between the presence of termites or ants without the need to access building cavities and voids . Termatrac requires no physical penetration of walls and no need for tapping or prodding. Termites are not disturbed, do not retreat, and remain active for easy and accurate detection by the Termatrac Termite Detection Radar.

Slide 7:

Eliminate the guess-work in Termite Detection and Treatment – Identify the exact locations of termites – Easily and accurately locate termite nests and entry points . – Because the termites have been located without disturbance, treatment can be applied while the termites are working normally.

TRAMEX MOISTURE METRES:

TRAMEX MOISTURE METRES Excess moisture and humidity left within a building environment or its structural elements is the cause of damage to structural materials such as rot, mold growth, reduced insulation values, failure of flooring, roofing and wall support.

Slide 9:

To avoid such issues the building inspector needs the right diagnostic to carry out their work professionally and efficiently. The moisture of the building structure needs to be measured . When we use a moisture metre we can detect elevated moisture levels hidden behind a variety of materials, such as tile and vinyl.

Slide 10:

This feature helps locate plumbing leaks hidden beneath shower and bathroom floors. The moisture metre provides a measurement of those levels .

Slide 11:

To carry out the building investigation efficiently and effectively it is also important to have knowledge of the building construction components and materials, as well as the internationally recognized standards and reference guides for water damage restoration.

Slide 12:

Initially , using infrared cameras and moisture meters, it is necessary to establish which building materials are ‘wet’, which are ‘not wet’, and to trace the leak back to its source. Determining the cause of loss or point of entry.

FLASHLIGHT:

FLASHLIGHT

Slide 14:

Home Inspectors are always searching for the perfect flashlight. Powerful flashlights are good for seeing in dark areas where access is difficult or impossible but the strong reflection can make taking photos difficult. Most inspectors own several types.

Slide 15:

We always carry extra batteries and flashlights as a back up. Losing the main light unexpectedly can leave an inspector in a dangerous situation if they have no back up light.

TELESCOPING LADDERS:

TELESCOPING LADDERS

Slide 17:

Easy to carry through homes without bumping into walls and can be carried in the boot of a car.

RULE:

RULE

Slide 19:

A rule is a handy tool when checking handrail or step dimensions for safety purposes.

SPIRIT LEVEL:

SPIRIT LEVEL

Slide 21:

The spirit level is a device for determining true horizontal or vertical directions by centrering a bubble in a glass tube of alcohol or ether . We commonly use a level when building elements or components are out level or alignment example may be flooring, walls or windows.

TERMITE INSPECTION TOOL:

TERMITE INSPECTION TOOL

Slide 23:

The termite donger /inspection tool is a thin fiber glass rod with a plastic ball at the end of it. These are tapped onto skiring boards and timber frames to try and detect hollowness, which is an indication of termites . http://www.inspecteast.com.au/
