WDI Inspections in NC

If you’re buying, selling or refinancing a home, you will probably need a Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) inspection, often required by the bank, mortgage lender, or loan guarantor.

During State Pest Control’s WDI inspections, one of experienced, highly trained professionals thoroughly inspect the home’s entire interior and exterior looking for any evidence of an infestation of wood destroying organisms such as termites, wood boring beetles and wood destroying fungi. They will also inspect for evidence of past infestations and damage to wood. The inspection will be visual and physical, and will involve tapping and probing susceptible wood. Additionally, inspectors will look for conditions that could be conducive to future infestations, such as excessive moisture levels or leaks.

Termite Letter

Our inspectors will then provide a detailed written report, documenting their findings. Such a report,
commonly called a “Termite Inspection,” “Termite Letter” or “Clearance Letter,” is typically required for a closing in a real estate transaction.

If any evidence of infestation is found, we’ll make recommendations for the appropriate treatment to protect the home from these unwanted pests. There’s a good reason for that: Did you know that termite damage costs U.S. homeowners more than $5 billion per year? That’s more than floods, tornadoes and fires combined.
