Wood Destroying Insects

Wood Destroying Insects and Pest Home Inspections

The last thing you want to hear after you have closed on your new home is that it’s infested with wood destroying insects. A severe wood destroying insect invasion damages a home and puts the integrity of the structure at risk. The best way to become aware of any pests living in the home you want to purchase is by having a professional home inspector include it in their services. Pillar To Post Home Inspectors™ offers a selection of additional services that can be added to any home inspection we conduct. 

Do I Need a Wood Destroying Insect Inspection When I Buy

a Home?

Home inspections are an integral part of the home-buying process and must be conducted before purchasing a new home. Because Pillar To Post™ offers wood destroying insect inspections as part of our services, you have the added advantage of not having to hire multiple companies to inspect the home you want to purchase when you book with us. Potential buyers are not always aware of how essential it is to obtain a wood destroying insect inspection before closing on a home. If you decide against this inspection and skip this vital step, you risk the financial burden of repairs and renovation costs to rectify the damage caused by the wood destroying insects. Additionally, you may be setting yourself up for undue stress, frustration, and financial burden. Trusting in a Pillar To Post™ Home Inspector is a sound investment choice that also provides peace of mind when it comes to buying a new home.

Pillar To Post™ Looks out

for You

Because a wood destroying insect invasion can go undetected for years, the damage can be significant when it’s finally discovered. Wood destroying insects consume wood from the inside out, which means any evidence of their presence is not easily determined, and a homeowner may not realize their house is infested with pests when they list it for sale. As a potential home buyer, you can never be too cautious, so we recommend speaking to our local team, who will answer any questions you have about our home inspections. An added benefit to working with a Pillar To Post Home Inspector is you are welcomed and encouraged to accompany them while conducting the inspection on any home you are looking to purchase, which makes investing in a professional inspection essential for a potential home buyer.
