If you are buying a home or commercial building in California, it's pretty certain that you'll be needing a termite inspection. Some buyers and sellers consider the inspection to be a nuisance, just another obstacle in the path to closing the deal. But the truth is that a careful, thorough termite inspection by an honest, professional inspector is one of the most important steps in the process of buying a home.
A proper termite inspection, as required by the VA, FHA, HUD, and most banks, includes a lot more than just poking around for termites. A properly performed inspection is a thorough examination of all accessible areas of a home for visible evidence of termites, as well as for conditions conducive to infestation by termites.
The inspectors representing On Point Inspection Services will look for, and alert you to, things like wood that is too close to the soil, improper grading that can cause moisture problems, damaged rain gutter and downspouts, and many other easy-to-fix conditions that can save you thousands of dollars in repairs down the road.
We'll also let you know if there's evidence of a previously treated termite problem, and how well that treatment seems to be holding up; and if you do buy the house, you can call us to discuss an annual inspection plan to make sure that if the termites do come back, the problem will be nipped in the bud.
In short, we take our termite inspections seriously. If you're looking for a pencil-whipping termite inspector who will just glance at the house from his truck and sign it off, then look somewhere else. We don't work that way. We inspect every home as if we were buying it ourselves.
All our termite inspections Include:
• An honest, certified inspector who will inspect as if he was buying the house himself.
• A thorough inspection of all accessible areas of the property.
• Full compliance with bank and lender requirements, as well as VA / FHA / HUD regulations.
• Honest recommendations for spot or full treatments, if termites are found.
• A 90-day, fully transferable, termite-treatment warranty.
We're not afraid to stand behind our inspections because we do them right, the way they're supposed to be done.
