Termite Inspections

A termite inspection is a specialized part of a home inspection that looks for signs of an infestation or damage from termites. It is essential to check for evidence of this type of pest because they can cause extensive damage to the structure and framing of a home if not caught early. The inspector will look for mud tubes, which are created when termites travel, and signs of wood damage from existing or previous infestations.

During the termite inspection, we will inspect for evidence of other wood-boring insects, such as powder-post beetles, old house bores, carpenter bees, and Carpenter ants. Having a termite inspection can identify these pests that cause significant damage to the structure of your home, leading to costly repairs in the long run. In addition, some lenders require termite inspections as part of the loan approval process, so it is essential to make sure that these inspections are done correctly and thoroughly.

Termites and other wood-destroying insects can cause extensive structural damage to homes, which can be both costly and dangerous. Having a termite inspection done during a home inspection can help prevent costly future repairs.
