Termite (WDI/WDO) Inspections.

Termite (WDI/WDO) Inspections

Buying a home is a major investment. Before the deal is finalized, most prospective buyers want to understand the condition of the home. Purchasing a termite inspection is an important way to understand whether the home has any evidence of current or past infestation and damage. If infestation or damage is found, the buyer should obtain estimates for treatment and repair. These costs may be then be negotiated with the seller.

No home is “termite proof”.

Many buyers are surprised that even brick or masonry homes have termite infestation or damage. That is because all homes have wooden components including framing and flooring and furniture that are vulnerable to termite damage. Newer homes are also be susceptible to infestation and damage. Termites will infest wood of newly built homes just as readily as older homes. If considering the purchase of a newly constructed home, ask the seller whether home has received a termite pretreatment. Newer foundations may be built with termite-resistant wood or may be treated to prevent infestation.
