Home inspection does not replace a termite inspection

Platinum Property Inspections advises that a Prescott home inspection does not replace a termite inspectionIf you have ever bought or sold a home, you may be familiar with termite inspections. The subterranean termite that makes its home in Arizona can cause severe damage to structural wood in homes and buildings. While a termite inspection is required by most lenders, Platinum Property Inspections wants to make sure homeowners know that a termite inspection is separate from your Prescott property inspection.

The purpose of a termite inspection is to determine if there is, or has been, evidence of infestation or damage from termites or other wood-destroying insects and organisms. If a termite problem exists, there needs to be assurance that the property has been professionally treated to destroy the pests.

A home inspection is completed for different reasons. For a prospective home buyer, it helps identify potential problems to avoid costly repairs in the future. If you are a seller, the inspection is useful to ensure the home has a proper valuation, as well as detect issues that may negatively impact the sale of your home. The property inspection includes a complete assessment of the home, including visual inspection of the foundation, roof and external structures.

The property inspector also thoroughly examines major systems in the home including electrical, HVAC (heating and air conditioning), and plumbing systems, as well as:

•Roofing
•Basement and attic
•Insulation
•Floors and walls
•Doors and windows
•Appliances

Whether or not your lender requires it, it’s in your best interest as a home buyer to include a termite inspection in your pre-purchase requirements. In addition, you owe it to yourself to have a certified professional perform your home inspection. Trust your Prescott home inspection to Platinum Property Inspections, and let us provide you peace of mind at an affordable price.

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
