Wood Destroying Insects
Termites and other types of Wood Destroying Insects can cause significant damage in a home if undetected or untreated. Wood Destroying Insects can cause structural damage, which can pose problems down the road.
For your convenience, New Horizon can schedule a Wood Destroying Insect Inspection for the same day as your Home Inspection, saving you time by eliminating that extra phone call. In addition, some home loans require a Wood Destroying Insect inspection, so check with your realtor to determine if you need an inspection.
The Wood Destroying Insect Inspection is completed by a certified contractor and will be faxed to you or your agent once the report is completed. The report package is then mailed to you with a termite warranty from the contractor. Should termites be discovered during the warranty period, the inspecting contractor will provide a treatment at no additional cost to you. At a low cost this warranty can be extended and is also renewable and transferable. New Horizon Home Inspection Company does not provide warranties or guarantees of any kind and the scheduling of this service is for the convenience of our clients.
