Caught on Home Inspection: Wood Destroying Insects - Carpenter Bees 🐝
At Tri-County Home Inspections we've recently started taking videos of common things that come up in a home inspection. As the market tightens and buyers aim to be the most appealing offer, they actually consider waiving the home inspection. Mike Vakos, owner and lead home inspector of Tri-County Inspections, advises that if you find yourself in this situation, it is wise to get the home inspection either once your offer is accepted or once the transaction is complete and you're moving in.
A home inspection is designed to inspect all the components that make up a home, and it's the inspectors job to point out where things may need to be updated, repaired or replaced to keep your home maintained. While our home inspectors are on site they see a lot of common things that will be added to the report. The Tri-County Inspection YouTube channel will be devoted to sharing these things, so that you know what to expect at a home inspection, and why we recommend having a home inspection done when you purchase a home, immediately after purchasing the home or when you're thinking about selling a home (a pre-listing home inspection).
Home Inspection Catches Wood Destroying Insects in Ohio
Home inspections, regardless of whether they're done before selling a home, before buying a home or after buying your home, can be instrumental in alerting home owners of wood destroying insects. Evidence of carpenter bees, termites and other pests don't have to be deal-breakers. There are steps to repair existing damage and prevent further destruction. The key is catching it early - and that's ANOTHER benefit of a home inspection.
