What is a Termite Inspection?
Dallas Home Inspections Company “Wood Destroying Insect” Inspections include inspecting for Subterranean Termites, Drywood termites, Formosan termites, Carpenter Ants, and other wood destroying insects.

1. Starts with a comprehensive 1-hour to 2-hour inspection of the exterior and interior of the property.
2. The detailed interior inspection includes inspection of all accessible areas of the garage and attic. This will also include all accessible baseboards, walls, windows, crawl spaces, door frames, and cabinets and closets.

He had provided a termite report with no signs of any active termites and guaranteed that termites were not at this property. So she was expecting a clear report from us. We saved our clients $950.00, the cost of the entire inspection was under 500.00.
