Before You Close On Your New Home

Home / Blog / Before You Close On Your New Home

Before you seal the deal as a new homeowner, it is important to make sure you are protected from any potential threats to your home. Here’s what you need to know before you close:

-Termite damage is not covered by homeowners insurance. In order to be protected from pests, you need protection from a trusted Terminix provider.

-There are two main types of termite contracts, retreat, and replacement. Retreat contracts often promise to only return to your home if termite damage has occurred. Replacement contracts promise to repair any new or existing termite damage. Replacement contracts offer a much higher level of protection and stronger guarantee, that’s why they are the only contract we offer at Terminix.

Before you close here are the steps you should take to protect your new home

-Have a licensed termite inspector complete the termite inspection report, which will give you a documentation of all previous or ongoing termite infestation.

-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.
