Why should I save for an inspection?

To say the least, everyone wants a termite-free property. It is due to the fact that termites can cause an alarming amount of damage that may cause owners to pay for expensive repairs. Although there are existing DIY methods and sprays sold so that people can do it themselves, this strategy may actually not be the safest way to do it. Since termite inspections are best practiced annually, it is advisable to save for it.

What are the things that I need to consider when preparing a budget for a termite inspection?

Termite inspections are not a “one size fits all” situation. It means that there are a couple of things to consider to realize why the prices of inspections vary from property to property. Several factors are calculated when pricing a termite inspection and treatment. Here are four of them:

The size of the property.
The hugeness or smallness of a home or a structure will help determine how much the treatment will cost. More massive properties would need to pay a higher price. Another thing to consider is that deciding to go for a limited treatment and application will cost less than going for a treatment for the entire house.

The type of termites to be exterminated.
Termites come in different types. The most common of them are drywood, dampwood, and subterranean termites. As the name suggests, drywood termites survive well on dry, desiccated wood. They live in areas with low moisture conditions, and such is in undecayed woods. Dampwood termites prefer damp, decaying wood to build colonies. It infests structures with high moisture levels. Subterranean termites are told to be one of the most destructive types. They reside underground, which gives them access to houses through cracks in their exterior. Subterranean termites are also the hardest to treat and can also be challenging to locate. That said, the price will vary depending on which termite/s is available in your house. The type of termite will determine the kind of chemical treatment needed, and these treatments also vary in price.

The severity of the termite problem.
Commonly, homeowners do not know or understand the extent of damage that termites cause until it is too late. The severity of termite activity present in a structure will also be a factor that will determine the price of termite treatment. The most helpful thing to do is to get ahead of a possible problem so that you can save more time, money, and stress.

The number of treatments required.
The price of a termite treatment also depends on the frequency of chemical applications. If inspectors recommend more visits than usual, then the price will increase. Being a part of the solution by lowering the risk of a severe termite problem will help you save money.
