Charlotte Home Inspector Reveals Number 1 Place to Find Termites in Your Home

October 1st, 2010 · No Comments

What is the No#1 place that termites are found on home inspections?  Termites cause over 2 billion dollars annually usually ranks no # 1 or no #2 annually on homeowners insurance claims.  The problem with this is that most homeowners insurance policies do not cover termite damage.  This is why we recommend getting a termite warranty or bond with a qualified termite company that will inspect your house every year.  We probably wouldn’t have as much termite damage if during original construction the builder did not leave construction debris and cellulose material in the dirt filled porch. The dirt filled porch is the no #1 spot I have found termites in over 15 years of performing home inspections is the dirt filled porch.  If you are having a new house built make sure that the builder keeps the front stoop or dirt filled porch clear of debris or cellulose material.  If you are inspecting a preexisting home make sure that the inspector inspects the dirt filled porch area very thoroughly. For more information on home inspections or termites go to Ask The Charlotte Inspector.
