Think you may have just found the perfect home? Is it a good neighborhood for the kids to grow up in? At a reasonable price, too? If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
In most cases, home inspections can help home buyers avoid messy real estate deals. Imagine moving into your dream home only to face the nightmare of finding issues that would’ve been a deal-breaker— i.e. mold hiding under the sink, faulty plumbing and, ruined wood.
One of the most common issues is that of destroyed/ruined wood that can look unsightly as well as compromise the structural integrity of your home. That’s why you need to have wood destroying insect (WDI) inspections done before deciding to move into a home.
Need more convincing? Here are a few more reasons why you should go for a WDI inspection:
Discover Termite Infestations
The main goal of these inspections is to figure out whether your building is home to termites and other bugs that are harmful to wooden structures.
Here are a few wood-destroying bugs found in Ohio:
- Carpenter ants
- Carpenter bees
- Powder-post beetles
These are just some of the insects which could destroy your wood. Some of them have low extermination success rates such as the carpenter ants—their colonies are difficult to find. These ants can quickly ruin wooden structures such as fences, sheds and flooring.
An inspection will help you decide whether you want to take on the task of getting rid of the infestation.
Relatively cheap to get
Typically, home inspections or WDI inspections are relatively cheap. Especially compared to the cost you’ll incur on multiple session of extermination/pest control if you go ahead with buying the property without running a test first.
A WDI inspection costs approximately less than $150.00 and varies depending on the size of the house.
Peace of Mind
Conducting a WDI inspection will give you a definitive answer as to whether your home is infested with insects or not. You’ll have peace of mind either way, since you won’t have to keep guessing— you can start working towards a solution immediately.
