So, you found a new home and you’re looking for a mortgage so you can call it your own. You’ll find your mortgage lender will ask you to have a WDIR inspection before they can approve your financing. That’s where we come in! A Wood Destroying Insect Report, or a WDIR, is a document that indicates whether wood-destroying insects, like termites, are present at the property you wish to buy.
What is a wood-destroying insect?
These insects cause damage to wood, whether to eat or live in it. Termites are well known for using wood as their sustenance, so they consume the wood they damage. Carpenter ants make tunnels to inhabit in wood, and some critters like powder beetles and carpenter bees damage wood to lay their eggs.
Why is a WDIR important?
The damage caused by wood-destroying insects is expensive to repair. In some cases, it may be too exhaustive to be repaired. Having a WDIR inspection and report ensures you know that your home is free of these issues before you sign paperwork and are committed to the home. It’s always a good idea to have a WDIR before you buy a home so you can buy with confidence and enjoy your home with peace of mind.
