Why it’s important for a pre-home termite inspection to be carried out

Buying a home can provoke all of these at the same time: excitement, stress, and exhaustion. The many factors that need close attention are overwhelming. However, they are necessary to ensure the home you decide to buy is the correct choice for you and your family. One of the main areas in need of serious attention is that of a home inspection.

Home inspections are not compulsory by law, but they do offer an incredibly detailed insight into the current condition of the home, as well as, what kind of state it could end up in left untreated.

An experienced home inspector will test your “dream” home for a lot of things, starting from the foundation, to the roof conditions, and all things in-between. It is also important that you request a termite and insect inspection. This is especially important if there are any hints or slight evidence of wood rot in the potential home. It could mean an infestation.

Termite Damage

Termites can cause thousands of pounds in damage by weakening the structure by eating away through wood and other materials it fancies. This can turn into very trying times, especially when you are unaware of them eating through what could be the biggest investment of your lifetime.

It is also not a nice experience having thousands of winged termites emerging from cracks and decaying wood around your home; infesting your living space and disturbing your ambiance.

Termites can have an effect on the asking price of any home, as they can cause thousands of dollars worth in damage.  This can put the buyer with high out-of-pocket expense, if the seller is unwilling to pay the repair bills. A qualified experienced home inspector will be able to identify any issues, give you a correct evaluation of any damage, and give you the right information to what needs done in terms of treating the infestation.
