Termite Control & Termite Inspections

Termites exist for the sole purpose of eating dead wood, and they don’t care if it’s a tree or a two-by-four. If it has been more than a year since your last inspection, they could already be nibbling away at your investment. Our licensed professional inspectors will thoroughly inspect your structure, and, if termite or water damage is found, we will create a specific defense/repair plan to get the problems under control, as well as a maintenance schedule to keep your home safe once the damage is corrected.

Why You Need Termite Inspection?

There are different types of termites and the most common are dry wood, subterranean and damp wood termites. The best way you can deter a colony of these termites from taking over your home is by controlling them and this is where an inspection comes in. Though not easily identifiable with the naked eye, a professional could quickly tell you if your home is infested. Many people assume that termites only infest homes made with wood but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Regardless of whether you live in a brick or stone home, it’s important to realize that termites have no boundaries and they will feast on any piece of wood structure including frames. The worst part is that they leave the exterior part of the wood intact after eating through the internal structure which is even more dangerous since it makes them almost invisible. The only way your home is truly safe is with a regular inspection. The extent of termite damage to U.S homes is billions of dollars every year. Do not let your home be a part of that statistic.
