What are the measurement guidelines to follow when doing a termite inspection in Australia?

If you follow the Australian Standards and manufacturing instructions, there are at least 6 main ones:

  • 2mm - Sheeting martial should protrude continuously through render or mortar.

  • 20mm - Sheeting martial should protrude continuously under ant capping and external sheeting material.

  • 25mm - minimum separation of decks, pergolas, carports from the main structure.

  • 35mm - Minimum visual inspection zone can be relaxed if sheeting material has been installed (depends on individual manufacturer’s instructions).

  • 75mm - Visual inspection zone from ground to the top edge of the footing or structural timbers.

  • 400mm - separation from the lowest point of structural timber (Subfloor bearer) to ground.

Does your house comply? This is not a problem for older homes, the main non-compliance happens on new builds!
