What could be more destructive than a tornado, a hurricane, a flood? What could cause such damage to a home and still not be covered by traditional homeowners insurance policies? Surely the source of such catastrophic consequences must be a mythological figure of massive size and devastating abilities — Godzilla perhaps? Not quite, think almost the exact opposite in fact. Think about something so small that it is virtually unseen by the human eye. Think … termites!
If you are in the process of buying a new home, you need to be aware of the massive destructive power that these microscopic critters can wreak upon a residence. If they get into the right spots of a home, they can severely impact the very stability of its structure. Another sad realization concerning termites is that traditional home inspectors aren’t comprehensively skilled enough in the specialization of termite inspection to accurately spot them and provide enough useful information to address the existing and potential damage caused by them.
Specialized termite inspections are the way to go. They are quite affordable and offer the peace of mind in knowing that you are thoroughly protected against one of the most destructive forces any home or property can realize. You’ve already invested significant time and beyond significant resources into the home buying process. Skimping on something like a professional termite inspection at this point just doesn’t make sense.
Once you hire a professional to perform a thorough termite inspection, they should be able to give you detailed reports concerning any existing infestation or the likelihood of future problems. This will allow you ample time to either pull out of the sale and look elsewhere for a new home, or address the concern with the person selling the home so you can work out a deal that works for both of you.
