Residential Real Estate Pest Inspections
The number one reason for having a termite pest inspection when purchasing a property is for the long term protection of your investment. Termites and other wood destroying insects can cause thousands of dollars in damage without ever being noticed. A trained, experienced and knowledgeable inspector could save you a lot of time, effort and dollars over the life of your home ownership.
During a Graduate termite or wood destroying organism inspection, we will inspect for visible and accessible signs of termite, carpenter ant and powder post beetle infestations. Additionally, our inspectors will discern between insect damaged wood, water and fungi damaged wood.
Regardless of which company you choose to do your inspection, an important issue to consider should a termite or other insect infestation be found, is who should contract for treatment. Typically, the seller is responsible for this, often resulting in choosing a pest control company based on the lowest price that meets the minimal requirements. This is not always what is best for the long term protection of the buyer’s new home and investment. We would be happy to discuss your situation with you and provide alternative options that will better protect the new home in the long run. Give us a call!
