Armored Home Inspections, LLC offers Wood Destroying Insect Inspections which can be performed with or without a home inspection. As Pennsylvania requires, our inspectors are certified by the PA Department of Agriculture. Your inspection will include a report of findings and recommendations on form NPMA-33, graphs of any visible damage or activity, and when needed a proposed estimate of costs for treatment. Contact us to find out more, or to schedule an inspection.
Though our WDI Inspection covers all types of wood destroying insects, such as carpenter ants, carpenter bees, powder post beetles, and termites, the most commonly occurring activity and damage comes from termites.
Termites are a very interesting insect, and yet the public knows very little about them. You may have heard rumors or tales of termites eating up a house right from under a homeowner. Though they can literally do this, it would take a very large colony and a very long time to actually cause a house catastrophic structural damage.
