Termite Inspection Cost
If you’re buying a home in Arizona…getting a termite inspection report is a must! Arizona is home to more than 17 species of termites and considered by many to be “Ground Zero in termite destruction.” Termite inspection cost can vary depending upon the size, age, and location of the inspection along with the experience of the extermination company. That being said, termite inspection cost in Arizona can be anywhere from $50 to $500, with the most common cost falling in the $50 to $150 bracket. Overall getting a termite inspection report prior to purchasing a home is a great investment and unfortunately for some buyers termite inspection cost is the least of their worries. Purchasing a termite inspection report can save you from buying a home infested with termites or hidden termite damage.
When considering an exterminator for your termite inspection it’s important to select an expert familiar with all 17 species of termites found in Arizona. Not all termites are the same, nor is the evidence that indicates their presence. Most termite inspectors are familiar with the more common native species subterranean termites. Their presence is often visible by distinctive shelter tubes on outside stem walls, inside garages, and/or hanging from ceiling joists. Few inspectors are familiar with the droppings left by Western Drywood termites, or galleries of Dampwood termites. When this subtle, yet distinctive evidence is overlooked a home buyer can be left on the hook for thousands of dollars worth of damage and treatment costs down the road.
