Austin Termite Inspections
Regardless of the type of home you are buying, the termite (WDI) inspection is an element of your home inspection that should not be overlooked. Termites and other wood destroying insects can cause structural damage to building components. A thorough inspection of the structure to termites and other wood destroying insects should be completed prior to your purchase.
There are different types of termites in the Austin area, the most common being the subterranean termites. Subterranean termites typically come from the ground and penetrate the slab through openings under the slab for plumbing and other components.
Carpenter Ants are another common wood destroying insect found in homes. This type of ant will excavate galleries in the wood framing in the home to create areas to nest. These excavation areas weaken the wood framing as the excavations become larger over time.
