Reasons Why It Is Essential to Get a Termite Inspection Before Purchasing a House.
Termites Are Not Covered by Homeowners Insurance
As unfair as it may seem, as a general rule of thumb, you are not able to claim termite damage under your home insurance.
Every insurance policy is different, of course, and you should consult with your provider before you purchase a new home anyway, so there are no other surprises down the line.
However, the last thing you would want is to get sold a property that ends up having a termite problem and finds out there’s nothing your insurance company can do about it.
Keep in mind, that you do have legal recourse in this scenario, and should indeed feel free to sue if you purchase a home with a termite infestation without the previous owners disclosing this ahead of time. But a legal battle could take months or even years of your time and cost you a lot of money just to get tangled up in court.
That’s why, for the safety of your home and everyone in it, the best course of action is to always call a professional for a termite inspection before you complete your purchase.
Termites cause a ton of damage.
Every year, termites cause at least $5 billion in property damage in the United States alone—that’s right, as in a billion with a B!
These insects can thoroughly chew through wood, flooring, and even wallpaper, and are known as “silent destroyers” because, oftentimes, by the time you know damage has been done, it’s too late to do anything about it.
That’s why at Calibugs Pest Control, we are committed to helping you catch termite destruction early.
With a professional termite inspection, our experts can detect damage you may have never noticed on your own. Plus, even if you do locate termites without a professional, several colonies can live on an acre of land at the same time, meaning there could literally be millions of termites waiting to damage your home that you don’t know about!
