Termite Inspection

What Is A Termite Inspection?

Also known as a Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) inspection, the termite inspection is an inspection for wood-destroying organisms (termites, wood-boring beetles, wood decay fungi, etc) or evidence of wood-destroying organisms (frass, galleries, mud-tubes) in your home. Depending on where you are in the State, different species can target your precious investment. In Brevard County, we see a combination of Subterranean Termites, Drywood Termites and the most destructive of all Formosan Termites. Termites can be found on all types of structures including block homes.

Who Needs This Inspection?

We recommend every potential buyer obtain a termite inspection if the property is more than 5 years old. Buyers who are obtaining VA financing are required to have a clear WDO (Termite) inspection. This inspection MUST be reimbursed to you by the seller.

Common Findings

It is common in Florida homes to find wood decay fungi, which is basically wood rot from consistent water damage. Evidence of termites is also common in Florida homes, but this does not mean there are active termites in the home.

About Our WDO Inspections

During a termite inspection, we inspect your potential investment with various tools and methods including crawling inaccessible crawl and/or attic spaces, tapping on soffits, examining areas of the home looking for frass, wings, or any sign of compromised wood.

How Is The WDO Report Filled?

It is completed on Florida Form 13645. The NPMA form is not approved for use in the State of Florida.

Damage Caused By Termites

The damage caused by termites can easily add up to $3000.00 to $5000.00 in damage before they are even noticed and the costs to repair this damage are not covered by Homeowners insurance.

"Honor Services performed a home inspection on my potential new home as well as a scope of the plumbing. They were thorough and professional. I felt that I had all the information I needed to proceed with the purchase. They called and went over things with me and the report I received was very detailed. I highly recommend Honor Services."

"This company is so thorough. They were accommodating, communicated very well and quick getting us the reports. They pointed out things in our unit and common grounds post construction that we wouldn't have noticed ourselves. They also have equipment we wouldn't have had. We highly recommend this company."

"Our lead inspector Jeffrey Prescott was very friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. He took time to answer any questions about main concerns we had with the home. He was extremely detailed in explaining everything on the report that was an issue. There was another younger guy with him and he was very professional and detail oriented as well. I highly recommend this company for a home inspection. The report is extremely detailed, not difficult to read and has extensive pictures to provide the homeowner with. Thanks Honor Services for a fantastic job!!"

"We recently used Honor Services to inspect our existing home for its 12 month warranty and also to inspect an existing home we were considering to buy. Both times, they were great! They arrived on time, were very professional and conducted the inspection with great attention to detail. They sent us their report the same day which included photos and a description that was easy to understand for the homeowner. They were recommended by our real estate agent, Todd Ostrander, ReMax Elite."
