Wood Boring Insects

Wood Boring Insects infest more than 700,000 homes each and every year. Your home is your biggest financial investment, and protecting it against Wood Boring Insects should be a high priority. If left unchecked, insects can systematically destroy your home and any valuable wood objects within it. Nonetheless, any discovery of insects in your home means making some difficult choices as to what steps to take in order to prevent any further damage.

A WBI inspection is usually a big deal for most of my clients. If your home inspection included a WBI inspection, please review your WBI report (on page 4 of your home inspection report) to determine if evidence of insect activity was found on your prospective property. If evidence of Wood Boring Insect activity was noted, I recommend an exterminator be contacted for treatment as soon as possible and have a licensed Carpenter evaluate and estimate repairs for replacement of any damaged areas to include determining if hidden damage exists behind the finished walls.

I recently accompanied David Valley during his inspection of the house my son was buying. Having purchased a number of houses during my lifetime, I considered myself very knowledgeable and thorough. However, he surpassed me greatly, picking up on important details I would have missed. He frequently suggested ways on how something could be fixed or improved. He displayed broad knowledge of house structure, heating and cooling system, plumbing, electrical, etc. David is the best home inspector I have ever employed and I recommend him implicitly. Thank you for a great home inspection.

Sincerely yours,

Hartmut S.
