  • Fungal decay

  • Borers
  • Rodents
  • Beetles
  • Ants
  • Bees
  • Wasps
  • Moths

While there are quite a few things to look for, they can also cause extreme structural damage, electrical damage, fabric damage and furniture damage, so having inspections performed your home pre-sale or pre-purchase, can save you tremendously.

Once you get your report back from your inspector, they will give you all the information you’ll need to fix any building or pest problems they encounter during the inspection.

Taking their advice and doing exactly what they recommend you do to fix any problems they have encountered as quick as possible is extremely important as you could face major problems with your home in the future.

Want to avoid these problems within your new home? Don’t panic!
