Termites are nasty visitors. They're almost invisible, completely silent and have the potential to cause extensive damage.
Just saying the word "termite" can make homeowners shudder, and for good reason. Termites are active in 49 of the 50 states (Alaska is too cold to sustain them), and cause more than $60 billion in property damage every year.
If you're buying a home, contact Scottsdale Desert Inspections to inspect for termites. It could save you headaches later. Actually, if you're taking out a mortgage, there's a good chance the lender will require that you have a termite inspection (as well as a general home inspection) performed before the sale is finalized.
