Investment Inspection offers FREE wood destroying insect inspections with ALL Home Inspections. All WDI inspections are compliant with NY State form NPMA-33 to ensure home is free of termites. If there is suspicion of wood destroying insect infestation or damage to where the NPMA-33 could not be completed, further recommendations would be made by Investment Inspection and their trusted referral partners. Either way, we've got YOU covered!
Wood destroying insects can be one of the more devastating issues that can be found in a home. If there are active colonies, it could spell disaster for the home buyer if not caught in time. While it doesn't mean the house is a total loss, it is definitely something that should be taken seriously and by someone who knows what they are doing.
Again, it comes down to looking out for YOU and having an inspector who has the knowledge and expertise in recognizing the signs of WDI infestation. Many of the signs are not visible from the surface and require extensive investigation.
Hopefully your future home doesn't have these issues, but if it does, our certified Home Inspectors will guide you in the right direction on what to do about it and what your options are. Ultimately it is up to you to make the final call, but you will be presented with all findings and the severity. Further, there would be recommendations on the reality of fixing the issue, repairing the damage, and then preventing it from reoccurring in the future. Either way, rest assured that a true expert Home Inspector has your back and will find the problem if it does exist.
If you choose to still proceed with the purchase of the home, you can then take those recommendations and have the seller take care of the problem out of their pocket, while negotiating a lower sales price. Regardless, the seller CAN'T sell a home with wood destroying insects to ANYONE, so it can put you at an advantage if you're willing to wait for the problem to be corrected.
Wood destroying insects can be a tough situation. Trust the Home Inspection service that cares about YOU.
