The Termite Inspection Report

When buying a home, most mortgage lenders will require an inspection for wood destroying organisms. Depending on which state you’re buying in, the resulting inspection report can be called a WDIR (NC), WIIR (GA), WIR (SC) or CL-100 (SC). No matter what you call it, the termite inspection report helps protect you by ensuring you’re not inheriting a termite problem in your new home.

As a home buyer, it’s important to understand that the termite inspection report is not a guarantee that the home will remain termite free. And it does not protect you from future damage. That’s why it’s critical to get termite protection in place once the inspection is complete.

Before You Close

Whether you’re buying or building, getting a loan or paying cash, there are a few things that you need to know and do before you close.

What you need to know before you close:

  • Homeowners insurance does not cover termite damage. You need to get termite protection from a trusted provider like Terminix.
  • Termite protection contracts often go by two names: retreat and replacement. A retreat contract only promises to come back out and retreat if a termite problem occurs. A replacement contract promises to repair any new damage caused by termites. A replacement contract is a much stronger guarantee, and it’s the only kind Terminix sells.

What you need to do before you close:

  • Have a licensed termite inspector complete the termite inspection report, which documents previous or active infestations and damage.
  • Enlist a trusted professional to make any necessary repairs.
  • Choose a termite protection plan that guarantees future protection against the biggest threat your new home will face.

And Terminix can help with all three! Give us a call today to get started.
