If you love your current home, but you know that you need more space to accommodate a growing family, it is understandable to think about selling the home and buying a new one. However, this is not a necessity, especially when you are able to expand your home with the addition of several new rooms.
Before taking on a massive project like this, you want to get a termite inspection beforehand.
Take Care of Issues Prior to Building
If you do happen to have a termite infestation, you will definitely want to take care of the problem before you begin expanding your home. Termites might cause damage slowly, but the damage they do cause can be quite costly and time-consuming to fix, so you do not want to give termites any extra time to live.
Gain Peace of Mind
When you are about to undergo a huge project like adding to your home, which is especially important because it keeps you from having to buy a different home, you do not want anything to go wrong.
In addition to taking care of maintenance and repairs throughout your home, you do not want to have your home expanded, only to find out that you have a major expense ahead in termite fumigation.
Avoid Future Problems on New Construction
It is easy for termites to travel all throughout your home once they are inside. Unfortunately, this means if you decide to follow through with the expansion before you get a termite inspection, and there happens to be termites, it is almost inevitable that they will make their way into the new part of your home.
After investing in such a large renovation, the last thing you want is to spend more money.
