termite inspection

If you are buying a new home, suspect termites in your current home, or have never had a termite inspection then you should get one as soon as possible. The typical homeowner does not detect the presence of termites until after they have caused extensive damage to their home. In order to prevent these silent destroyers from costing you a lot of money in home repairs you need to catch them as quickly as you can. The quickest and most effective way to figure out if you have a termite infestation is to get a professional termite inspection. The inspector will check for a number of things to determine if your home has been infested, treated, or repaired because of a previous termite infestation. The inspector will also check for a current termite infestation and damage.

An experienced termite inspector will be able to tell you if your home has ever been infested with termites. They can do this by looking at the damaged wood in your home to see if it is fresh or not. In addition, termite inspectors know how to identify the remnants of once active termite colonies. They often leave behind evidence in the form of abandoned mud tubes.

The termite expert will also be able to see signs of a current infestation. Some of the things that can signify a current infestation include mud tubes, excrement, termite carcasses, shed wings, and termites. Inspectors are trained to spot these signs of an infestation and can often catch issues that homeowners overlook.

The inspector will create a detailed report of their findings in their inspection along with pictures and provide that to you in 24 hours. Give us a call today for your termite inspection!
