Termite Inspection

Protect The Unseen Parts Of Your Home

Termite control is vital for property owners in the Michiana area. Every year termites cost homeowners a projected $5 – $6 billion in termite destruction. That’s more than fires, hurricanes, and floods combined. Termites usually feed on unseen portions of the property, often unbeknownst to you until it’s too late.

At Gold Key Home Inspections, we provide complete termite inspection services as an additional, essential service for your house inspection. These inspections go way past that of a fundamental termite inspection but are priced around the same. It is one more thing that enables us to serve you completely. Termites and other wood destroying creatures can be hard to detect and are frequently mistaken for other issues, like dry rot and water damage.  If there is an active infestation, it is vital that the problem is treated.  Our home inspectors have the education to recognize numerous organisms that may hurt your house, and we can spot the indications and will trace them back to the source.

If the termite inspection is needed for financing, you can be sure that we’ll fill out the paperwork/form recognized by all lenders to document termites, if any are present.

This is a great tool, and most inspections end here, but it does not include many other possible issues in the wood damaging organism world. In order to completely show the condition of the home, we will also include a separate inspection report that will cover any areas not indicated on the termite inspection form and satisfies your lender’s needs. We don’t possess a conflict of interest, as we don’t perform work on any houses we don’t inspect and have no reason to utilize scare tactics that are common in the industry.  With that being said that if termite issues are found we’ll give you some resolutions to consider.

Indiana requires treatment when any active infestation of termites is discovered. If signs of termites are discovered in a property structure that displays no visible evidence of having been treated for termites in the past, then a termite treatment should be recommended. A treatment may also be recommended for a formerly treated structure showing signs of termites if there are no documents of a termite treatment by a certified pest control business within the last five years unless the property is still under warranty or protected by a service agreement with a licensed pest control company.

They require this for a reason, and you want to ensure your house or business is termite-free regardless of the lender.
