Here’s an interesting situation where termites had been tunneling behind the drywall paper. It was a small bubbling at the drywall. Further investigation revealed extensive termite activity. A chimney had been leaking and the moisture provided the environment which attracted the wood destroying insects. Years ago lenders required a termite inspection to make a loan. Now it is optional in many cases. Many buyers think that they are being smart shoppers by deciding to save money and forgo the Wood Destroying Inspect Inspection. Penny wise and pound foolish.
