Should you get a termite inspection with your home inspection? The simple answer is yes. Termites are here. As you can see on the map Florida is a Red zoned state for termites. Whether a house is wood frame, concrete block or brick termites will find their way into a home if it is left untreated.
Getting a termite inspection with your home inspection is just as important as having the roof and other areas of the home checked. Termites can cause a lot of damage to a home and knowing if that damage already exists can save you a lot of money in potential repairs. Better to know before you close on a home if it has prior termite damage or a current termite infestation.
No matter who you use when purchasing a home, I suggest getting a termite inspection don’t prior to your inspection period running out.
