Be PEST informed BEFORE you buy
The choice is simple …
Supporting essential building inspections, professional and comprehensive pest inspections is a service EVERY potential home buyer should undertake.
An extensive pest inspection will allow you to know what is creeping under the surface.
- Is your new home free of termites and other pests?
- Is your new home safe to live in?
- Are pest repairs needed and when?
- Will those repairs be major or minor?
- Could you afford tens of thousands of dollars to repair extensive pest damage?
Sellers will not always disclose previous or current pest infestation many are unaware a problem exists.
To ensure you are informed, a comprehensive pre-purchase pest inspection is CRITICAL to protect you, your family and your investment.
Unlike many structural issues, pest infestation is often a hidden threat and to the untrained eye, it can be difficult to identify the existence of pests and ascertain what damage has already done. Only a thorough Probe pest inspection can tell you what is lurking under the surface.
Pest infestations that go undiagnosed or untreated can require a complete home to be torn down and rebuilt. Even smaller infestations can spiral out control causing thousands of dollars in damage.
