If you are buying or selling a home in Indiana chances are you will need a Wood-Destroying Insect (WDI) inspection.

Some sellers and agents consider the WDI inspection to be a “nit-picky” item- just another obstacle in the path to closing the deal. But the truth is that a thorough termite inspection by an honest, licensed, certified professional inspector is one of the most important steps in the process of buying a home.

An infestation can be very expensive if severe issues are discovered and can cause several issues related to the structure of the home. A WDI inspection, or Wood Destroying Insect inspection, will identify active infestations or damage from several insects including: termites, carpenter bees, powderpost beetles, and carpenter ants.

AWP Home Inspections will look for things like wood that is too close to the soil, improper grading that can cause moisture problems around the perimeter of your home, downspouts and guttering which do not route water effectively around the home, and many other easy-to-fix conditions that can save you thousands of dollars in repair costs. We also inspect for previous evidence of a treated termite or WDI problem while we are onsite.

We take all of our inspection services seriously. If you’re looking for an inspector who is “Just looking around” and sign off everything is OK without giving you a thorough inspection, then we are not the company for you.

AWP Home Inspectors provide you with the most comprehensive inspection report in the area. We inspect your home like we are buying it for ourselves.
