A Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR) is a report that is completed by a qualified inspector that notes any evidence of wood destroying insects found on the property. Wood destroying insects include termites, carpenter ants, powder post beetles, and old house borers. The inspector will look for signs of damage, such as holes in the wood, damaged insulation, and mud tunnels. If they find evidence of a wood-destroying insect, they will recommend the best course of action for treating the infestation. There are a few instances when you should get a wood destroying insect report. One is if you are buying or selling a home. The other is if you have noticed damage to your home’s structure. It’s important to get the report to identify what kind of infestation you’re dealing with and how to take care of it. If you’re buying or selling a home, your real estate agent will likely recommend that you get a wood destroying insect report. This is because it’s important to know if there are any active infestations on the property. The information will also identify any previous infestations and what was done to treat them. Similarly, if you’ve noticed damage to your home’s structure, the report will help identify the type of infestation you’re dealing with and how to fix it.
Wood Destroying Insects can cause extensive damage to your home if left unchecked. That’s why it’s important to have a WDIR completed at least once a year.
