Wood-Destroying Inspection Process

A wood-destroying inspection is a visual check of a home to look for live insects that may cause damage to wood. The examination also involves finding signs of wood-destroying insects in the space, like holes.

Inspectors will enter a home and check any visible areas. Often, inspections are done with flashlights, magnifying devices and screwdrivers. Inspectors must also check attic spaces, so they may bring ladders. Inspections look for any organism that can impact the structural integrity of the wood, including:

  • Termites.
  • Wood-boring beetles.
  • Dry rot and wet rot.

Many states require homeowners to get a wood-destroying organism inspection report before selling a house. An inspection report notes any damage done, repair recommendations and an estimated repair price. The repair price may include any expected costs to rid the property of organisms and repair damaged structures.

Florida requires these inspections to ensure houses are safe for future residents. The inspection will also provide information that buyers can use to determine a property’s overall value.
