Termite Inspection Basics

About the Termite a/k/a  Pest Inspection, Wood-Destroying Insect (WDI) Certificate   

What – Inspection for activity and/or damage from the presence of any and all wood-destroying insects. Termites, Powder Post Beetles, Carpenter Ants and Carpenter Bees all destroy wood.

Who – All buyers and sellers of any home that is not brand new should request this inspection.   Condos that are not on the ground floor usually do not require a Certificate.


–        Your mortgage company will require a clear Certificate.

–        The seller may agree to repair and treat before you purchase.

–        Issues can be major, and a clear Cert is a one-year warranty from the pest company   that issues it.

When  –  For Buyers: bundle it in with your Home Inspection.           –  For Sellers: inspect at the time of listing.

How – When scheduling the Home Inspection, we seamlessly arrange for a qualified company to inspect for Termite/WDI.
