Albert Lea Home Inspection: Termite Inspection (507) 721-0122
What is a termite inspection?
If you home has termites, ignoring them could be one of the most costly mistake you ever make.
Termites eat cellulose and the wooden structure of your house will keep many thousands possibly even millions of termites nesting somewhere in the vicinity well fed for a lengthy period of time. Disastrously, this can and will cause severe structural damage to your home and could in fact destroy it completely. So, employing a professional inspector to carry out a full termite inspection may be a very small price to pay.
What can you expect during a termite inspection?
In simple terms a termite inspection is a visual certified inspection of all accessible areas of your property to determine if there is any activity from timber destroying bugs or organisms. The inspection should encompass the entire home and include any basements and any areas of crawlspace.
In properties where there is no basement or crawl space the attic space may be inspected. The whole procedure should only take approximately 45 minutes, but it could save you thousands of dollars.
FACT:- Did you realize that your general house insurance policy will NOT cover you against termite damage?
Don’t be fooled into thinking because you live in an area where the temperatures can drop. Cold conditions may reduce termites and slow them down but it will not kill them. Just as soon as things begins to warm up the termites will be back.
Regardless of whether you are sure you have a termite problem, think you may have a termite problem or are concerned that other dwellings in your area have termite problems getting a full termite inspection carried out is the only way to be certain. Your inspector will provide you with a full written report.
