The first step in protecting your home from the costly damage caused by termites and other wood destroying organisms is a full termite inspection.
While many people only think about termite inspections when they see termite damage or need an inspection for a Real Estate transaction or home loan refinancing, it’s smart to have your home or commercial building inspected for termites at least once every one to three years tops in southern California
During the termite inspection we look for any accessible evidence of termites or other wood destroying organisms such as carpenter ants, carpenter bees, wood boring beetles, wood fungus, and dry rot.
The inspector is required to report all evidence of these organisms, damage caused by these organisms, and any conditions on your property that might create a vulnerability to these organisms.
Free Termite Inspections
We offer free termite inspections as long as the home is not for sale, in escrow, or in a loan process. We’ll search the entire premises including the foundation in order to discover if your property requires treatment. Once we discover the source of your infestation, we will make sure to go over all of your available options to find what works best for you.
We charge a minimal fee for multi-unit complexes and commercial complexes and we charge $175-$250 on average for a termite report for a Real Estate transaction or VA loan. If the work is done, the fee falls into the quote and is subtracted from the total of the original quote given by the licensed inspector.
