Your Termite Inspection questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a termite inspection cost near me?

A termite inspection costs $75 to $150 on average. When combined with a whole home inspection, services to check for termites are only $50 to $100 extra. If termites are found, then annual or ongoing termite inspections and treatments cost $500 to $2,000 for a termite bond.

A termite treatment costs $330 to $820 on average for a basic exterior treatment.

Is a termite inspection worth it?

A termite inspection is worth it for:

  • Identifying the cause of wood damages in your home
  • Getting an official termite clearance letter to finalize a real-estate transaction
  • Proving that a home qualifies for a loan when refinancing
  • Filing a claim for damages with the landlord

What should I expect during a termite inspection?

During a termite inspection, you should expect the specialist to:

  • Give you a detailed report of all termite presence and damage
  • Suggest a treatment plan for any infestations
  • Explain and list all the causes of the termite problem
  • Find leaks that need to be sealed off to stop termites from spreading
  • Offer you an annual service plan

How long does a termite inspection take?

A termite inspection takes 30 to 45 minutes on average or up to 2 hours for large homes or properties. The total time depends on the property size, site conditions, and accessibility.

What are the signs you need a termite inspection?

Signs that you need a termite inspection include:

  • Tiny wings that collect in small piles around damaged wood
  • Many small holes in wood
  • Drywall pinholes
  • Small piles of sawdust-like debris
  • Hollow-sounding spots in walls or wooden furniture

How often do I need to get a termite inspection?

You need to get a termite inspection every 1 to 2 years on average, or you can wait up to 5 years if you live in a very cold and dry climate where termites are rare. However, if you've had termites before, then get a termite inspection every 1 to 3 months for up to 1 year after the treatment.

How should I prepare for a termite inspection?

You should prepare for termite inspection by:

  • Trimming back bushes that block the inspector’s view of the exterior walls.
  • Moving everything inside the house at least 2' away from the walls.
  • Take out all objects near the pipes under the sinks.
  • Clear the entrances to the attic, basement, or crawlspace.
  • Give a key or access codes to the inspector if you won't be home for the inspection.
  • Tell the inspector how many buildings they need to inspect on the property before they arrive, including any detached storage spaces.
  • Describe all evidence you've seen of possible termite damage.

Who do I hire for a termite inspection?

Call an exterminator or termite specialist to get a thorough termite inspection. Before hiring:

  • Compare at least 3 in-person estimates.
  • Read their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Choose licensed and insured businesses with at least 5 years of experience.
  • Get copies of an itemized bid and contract before the inspection begins.
  • Avoid choosing the lowest quote that typically indicates low-quality standards.
  • Never give the final payment until after they complete the inspection and give you the report.

What questions should I ask a termite inspector?

  • How long have you been inspecting homes for termites?
  • Can I see your list of references?
  • What can I do to stop termites from spreading?
  • How should I prepare my home for the termite inspection?
  • Which treatment methods do you recommend and why?
  • Will I need additional home repairs to prevent termites from coming back?
  • Have the termites spread into my walls?
  • What other costs should I expect beyond the inspection fee?
  • How long will your assessment take?
