A Termite Inspection is usually a standard part of most Home Inspections. Termites are a wood-destroying threat to a home and are usually not visible to the untrained eye.
Wood destroying insects are not limited to just termites. A Termite Inspection covers all wood-destroying insects i.e.: Termites, Carpenter Ants, Carpenter Bees & Powder Post Beetles
Mortgage companies request a clear termite certification before closing. When your client arranges an inspection with us, we will inspect the home/building, including radon and termite, at a package price.
How do I know I have Termites?
– Stray wings found near doors, windows and/or garage.
– Tiny holes on any wood surfaces in or outside of your home.
– Paint that has started to bubble on wood surfaces.
– Mud tunnels lining the foundation of your house.
– Springtime swarming.
The Termite Inspection will detect infestation/activity as well as areas with damage and in need of repair. In the event that damage is detected, a diagram of the affected area will be provided.
