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.

Hi Dave,

I was very impressed with you on Monday when we met in Peabody . I have never seen a home inspector spend 4 hours doing the most total inspection you did. And not only doing the inspection but educating your client at the same time.

I am sending you a new client, his name is Norman C. He is a good friend of mine. He is buying a house in Wenham on lake street and asked if I knew a "good" home inspector.

I have seen a lot of home inspectors over the years. The general contractor who couldn't make it on his own and thought that being a home inspector was another way of making money. But, all the while feeding his bad information along with his bad practices. David, your not that guy. I put you in the top 5% of all the home inspectors I've seen in the past 25 years. Well done!
