During the Inspection
When your inspector arrives for the inspection, they will first discuss with you the different types of termites that are in your area. They will also talk to you about the particular risks in your neighborhood. At this point, they will comb through your entire property, including the crawl spaces, basement, and attic, to look for signs of termite damage. At this point, your inspector will discuss your options for treatment and repair.
The treatment process will depend on your particular circumstances as well as the type of termites that have found their way into your home. For the most part, it will include bait and monitoring stations that will help the technician determine when all the termites have been eliminated.
Finally, you will enter the repair phase where any damage is corrected. This portion could be quite extensive or minimal depending on the amount of damage the termites did to your home.
