Central NJ Termite Inspection
Wood destroying insects (often abbreviated WDIs) can do extensive damage to a home if left unchecked and permitted to continue for a period of time. Almost every NJ home is potentially susceptible to these insects. The four types of insects commonly referred to as wood destroying insects are termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and wood-boring beetles. In order to perform a Central NJ Termite Inspection and Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) inspections, in New Jersey, most lenders will require that the inspector also is licensed to apply chemicals. Some home inspectors are also New Jersey licensed pesticide applicators although we don’t apply pesticides professionally.
Termite and other wood destroying insect inspections are one of Jersey Strong Home Inspection services. Jersey Strong Home Inspection offers a visual wood destroying insect (WDI) inspection that can be performed with or without a general home inspection.
A WDI inspection covers the visually accessible areas of a home. Our inspection will review areas that are currently infected, have previous damage, and point out conditions that could lead to future damage. This inspection checks, but not limited to the door, and window framings, foundation, wood joists and basement area. Other areas are checked which can harbor insects and they include firewood and other debris stored against the home, vegetation in contact with the house, wood siding contact with the soil, and grade, which does not slope away from the foundation.
Most issues, if brought to the attention of the homeowner, or home buyers, can be repaired and treated. We recommend a Central NJ Termite Inspection and all types of Wood destroying insect inspections throughout NJ with all of our home inspections.
We can provide the NPMA-33 report which is required by FHA, VA, and other mortgage companies.
