Residential Termite Inspections
Timber pest inspection involves checking for termites and wood borers. The inspector will thoroughly examine all areas of the home, including the roof void, subfloor, interior, exterior, fences, and bathrooms, to identify any active termites or past termite activity.
Termite damage and high moisture areas are tempting for termites, so that’s a big concern. Checking fences, timbers in ground contact, tree stumps, and old-form work timbers is part of the inspection. It’s also important to identify any previous treatments because if a property has had termites before, there’s a good chance they will return without preventative treatment.
Wood rot attracts termites, so inspectors check for that and many other issues. These are some of the things inspectors look for during the inspection process. If you have any concerns about your property, talk to Clear View building inspectors today!
