Approximately a month before your free termite warranty expires, our office staff will contact you. If you choose to extend your termite warranty, the monthly investment is $16.58 plus tax or can be paid annually for a discounted rate of $189.00 for 12 months of complete protection.

WHAT IF I SEE TERMITES WHILE I'M UNDER WARRANTY?

That's exactly what the warranty is for! At any time you see evidence of a potential infestation, give us a call (855-349-6757) or email (Support@GreenWorksServiceCo.com) and we will send out a technician to further investigate. If our technician discovers a termite infestation, GreenWorks will treat the infested area at no additional charge.

 

PEACE OF MIND

Every year thousands of homes are attacked by termites or other wood destroying pests. The average cost of a termite treatment is $218 to $868 for localized problems, or up to $2,500 for the entire house.  Home purchasers need to know if these pests are present before investing their money. That's why we include the wood destroying insect (WDI) inspection, WDI report and complimentary 90-day termite warranty in all our home inspections.  

TPCL #0761253

A wood destroying insect inspection (WDI) is a visual examination for wood destroying insects within or on a home that can or currently cause property damage to the structure.  These WDI inspections are commonly referred to as 'termite inspections' but actually cover all wood destroying insects common to our region.  During the inspection the inspector will examine the exterior, and interior of the home to find any signs, or conducive conditions for wood destroying insects. 

Most lenders will require a WDI report to be submitted for the home loan, especially FHA and VA loans, so you should ask your realtor or loan officer if this will be a requirement.

What is a termite inspection?

The inspection is a visual inspection of the interior, exterior and attic of the home to look for signs of active or previous signs of infestation. It should be noted that this is a visual inspection only and does not guarantee that there could be a hidden infestation as in wall cavities. It may take time for termites inside walls to show signs of their presence. Unlike a home inspection, a WDI inspection can be considered a "pass or fail" inspection. If active insects are found, a treatment will be needed before a clear report can be issued. If there are no active insects are found but there are conducive conditions, a preventive treatment or corrective measures may be required.

What are conditions conducive to WDI infestation?

Conducive conditions are defined as conditions that promote the presence of wood destroying insects. Some lenders require that conducive conditions be corrected, even if there are no active insects found.

Conducive conditions include but are not limited to:

  • Wood to ground contact

  • Formboards left in place

  • Excessive moisture

  • Debris under or around structure

  • Footing too low or soil line too high

  • Wood rot

  • Heavy foliage

  • Planter box abutting structure

  • Wood pile in contact with structure

  • Wooden fence in contact with the structure

  • Insufficient ventilation
     

WOOD-DESTROYING INSECTS

1. TERMITES

The most damaging insects that attack structural wood are termites. Their activity results in damage and control costs that exceed $1.5 billion per year nationally. There are 13 species of termites in the continental United States that require human intervention to some extent. Subterranean termites are the most common type of termites found in the United States.
 

The U.S. Forest Service has identified 15 conditions

that frequently lead to termite infestation:

  1. Cracks in concrete foundations and open voids in concrete foundations are hidden avenues of entry. 

  2. Any wooden posts or supports set in concrete may be in contact with the soil underneath. 

  3. Concrete porches with earth fill may provide wood-to-soil contact. 

  4. Form boards left in place contribute to the termite food supply. 

  5. Leaking pipes and dripping faucets in the crawlspace keep the soil under the structure damp. 

  6. Blocking crawlspace vents with shrubbery will cause the air under the structure to remain warm and humid. 

  7. Construction debris in the backfill beside the structure contribute to the termites’ food supply. 

  8. Low foundation walls and footings provide wood-to-soil contact. 

  9. Stucco or brick veneer carried down over the concrete foundation allows for hidden access to the structure.

  10. Soil-filled planters built up against the side of a structure allow direct access into foundation cracks. 

  11. Forms left in slabs where plumbing drains enter the structure provide access. 

  12. Wooden porch steps in contact with the soil are potential entry points. 

  13. A heating unit in a crawlspace maintains warm soil conditions for termite colonies year-round. 

  14. Paper is a wood product. Paper collars around pipes and ducts also provide access to the structure.

  15. Wooden fences, trellises and other wooden adornments up against the side of a structure may provide termite access.
