Termites Are Common in our Area
It’s true that termite are common in our area. As a termite Inspector I find infestation by wood destroying insects often. Areas such as basements, crawlspaces and garages can be moist or damp on occasion and be a ripe environment for activity.
Massive damage can be done to a home by termites, carpenter ants or other wood destroying insects. In humid areas where termites are a problem, its not unusual to find many homes that have been virtually hollowed out, their wood siding turning to dust at a touch.
Inspection is the only way to find infestation before damages occur. It is highly recommended that you get a termite inspection in addition to your general home inspection.
