Why Sellers need to get a Pest Inspection - Part 2
The common item that the pest inspection looks for is dryrot or fungus damage to wood. This is moisture related which damages the wood like termites. These may be more evident near water sources like kitchen and bathrooms or on the eaves of the roof or decks, exposed to wet weather. Moisture is the enemy of wood when it comes to fungus sources.
Just like termites can silently be eating away at the frame of the house, moisture intrusion can also do severe damage to wood members. Literally, they may be crumbling away from the inside.
Again active fungus damage (section 1) can open up to negotiations for large seller concessions, which can be avoided if caught and addressed early, before putting the property on market.
