The process of buying and selling homes is complex and sometimes lengthy. The value of your home is dependent upon many different variables, and inspections help to ensure that the buyer knows exactly what condition the property is in before deciding to sign on the dotted line to purchase. While you might do a simple home inspection for your Holly Springs, North Carolina property, it is important to also complete a Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR) as well.
North Carolina has a climate that is advantageous to termites and other wood destroying insects like carpenter ants. Not only is it warm, but it has a high humidity level, which can make wood beams and foundations slightly softer – something certain pests love. When you get a Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR), we check the property for all potential wood destroying insects, not just termites. Instead, we check for termites, carpenter ants, powderpost beetles, carpenter bees, and even fungi that will destroy wood. We will also check the moisture content of your wood to ensure that it’s not too high, recommending de-humidifiers or crawlspace encapsulation if necessary.
If you are in the process of buying a home or even selling a home, make sure that a Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR) is completed before the final purchase. Finding wood destroying insects doesn’t mean you must pass on that particular home, but it does give you the information you need to help you make an informed decision about moving forward.
