Wood Destroying Insects
Wood-destroying insects are one of the biggest threats to your property. These pests cause more than $1 billion of property damage annually in the US. They come in the form of tiny pests that silently and invisibly consume or live in wood, from the sills of your foundation to the rafters of your roof. They can cause deterioration of structural items leading many buyers to invest in the home inspection services to check for these insects.
Unlike most commonly accepted inspection standards, The BrickKicker offers optional termite and pest inspection services for an additional fee. Our inspectors here at The BrickKicker inspect for any damage to the home’s wooden structural components, which could compromise the overall structural condition of the home.
