Who needs a termite (Wood Destroying Insect or WDI for short) inspection?
The answer: real estate buyers, sellers, and owners.
Most often, a buyer of a new property will request a WDI inspection to make sure that there aren’t any termite or other wood boring insect problems with a property before finalizing a purchase. This is wise, since the cost of treatment and damage repair may cost many thousands of dollars if there is a problem.
There are a couple of reasons why homeowners get WDI inspections. One is for their own peace of mind. The second reason is that a bank or mortgage lender may require a written report when re-financing.
How does the process work?
- First, fill out the Termite Inspection Request Form.
- Next, Blue Ridge Termite will set a time to do the inspection and email you with that information.
- After the inspection in completed, the report will be typed and emailed to you and/or your Realtor later that same day along with a link for payment.
The fee for most inspections is $80.00. For large houses (over 4,000 Sq. Ft.) please call for a quote. There may be an additional charge for houses near the outskirts of our service area (see below).
