Why Are Regular Termite Inspections So Necessary?

Did you know that the average homeowner will spend $3,000 to repair the damage done to their home by termites? Not only that—every year in the U.S., Americans spend $5 billion on repair and control costs related to termites.

No one knows these facts more than our team at Bryan & Bryan Inspections. We have seen termites destroy homes from the inside out by hollowing out structural timbers. The only thing termites need to survive is wood, which is why getting a termite inspection is vital to maintaining your home.

Termites Are Just as Dangerous as Severe Weather

Most homeowners worry about storm damage or plumbing issues, but termites pose a threat just as big, if not bigger, than those. A single termite colony can have tens, even hundreds, of thousands of individual termites within it. And, although it would take awhile, termites can do so much damage to a building that it can collapse.

A termite colony’s favorite spots inside the home include:

  1. Attics

  2. Drywall

  3. Floor and ceiling joists

  4. Support beams

  5. Roof supports

  6. Wall studs

  7. Posts

  8. Foundations

Don’t Think You Need an Inspection for Termites? Not Worth the Risk

Without inspections, termites can go unnoticed for a long time and do serious damage to your home. We recommend termite inspections inside and outside your property at least twice a year to determine if there are signs of termites. Remember—termite damage isn’t covered by most home insurance policies.
