I will provide you with a comprehensive on-site computer generated report with photos. Also included is a WDO/WDI (wood destroying organisms or insects) report, sometimes called a termite or pest & dry rot report. Your report is handed to you at the end of the inspection in a binder along with other information and helpful tips regarding your future home. Your home inspection report is also available electronically.
The inspection report includes:
- Property grading & drainage
- Hot water heaters
- Built-in kitchen appliances
- Basement and/or Crawlspaces
In addition to the exterior and interior of the inspection, I will be looking for any active or inactive infestations of wood destroying organisms or wood destroying insects, fungi rot or conducive conditions. Wood destroying insects may be carpenter ants, wood boring beetles, termites, etc.
Many people ask me what carpenter ants and termites look like. Below, the first two pictures show you a carpenter ant and it’s size compared to a human finger. Picture #3 is wood damage caused by carpenter ants. Picture #4 shows a Pacific Coast termite. Picture #5 is a Subterranean termite. Picture #6 is a winged termite. Picture #7 shows Subterranean termite tubes emerging from a toilet bolt hole. These tubes are normally found in crawlspaces. These are some of the signs I look for while inspecting the crawlspace.
