The process encompasses a thorough inspection of the property. We search for evidence of termites, which normally consists of the following:

Why is a termite inspection needed?
Many lenders require it, and VA loans require it.
How long does the inspection take?
Usually, less than one hour.
Termites won’t attack a new house, will they?
Yes, unfortunately, termites can attack a new house within days of completion.
Are there other wood-destroying insects?
Yes, there are also wood-destroying beetles and carpenter ants. Our inspectors are trained to identify the differences.
How do the subterranean termites get into the house?
Very easily. All they need is an opening 1/64” wide. They can enter directly from the soil or they may build tubes from their colony to your home.
