No homeowner ever wants to think about the inconvenience and cost of a termite infestation, so it’s important to be proactive about these and other wood-destroying organisms. GreenLInk Home Inspections recommends pest and termite inspections in combination with your home inspection on Long Island. After all, the region’s risk level is considered moderate to high due to the climate. Let’s take a look at why you should consider a termite inspection for your home, and how valuable it could end up being for you.
The Destruction Caused By Termites
According to the EPA, termites cause billions of dollars in structural damage across the United States every year. Property owners spend over $2 billion treating termites. Unfortunately, it’s often difficult to detect an infestation until it’s too late. Termites don’t typically emerge from wherever they are tunneling, which could be the wood inside your home.
Find Them Before the Damage is Extensive
Many people don’t realize that home insurance does not usually cover termite infestations. Addressing termite infestations and repairing the damage they have left behind comes with a significant cost. Did you also know that current termite issues can prevent you from being able to sell your property, even if the buyers want to purchase it?
