Are you about to buy a new home? It's exciting, isnt it? You're not just purchasing a bunch of cement, wood, and brick; you're investing in a place where life is going to happen. It is where you'll see babies grow into toddlers, toddlers into teens, and teens into young adults. It is where you'll have birthday parties, special events, and graduation parties. You'll cook wonderful meals in your new kitchen, you'll kick back and relax in your new living room, and you'll enjoy all the amenities of having your own place in this big world. That is a future worth protecting. That is why everyone who purchases a new home should have a Wood Destroying Organism (WDO) report.

Wood destroying organisms are pests that can damage the wood of your new home, pests like the subterranean termite and the carpenter ant. Over time, these insects can do a lot of damage, damage that isn't obvious. It can go on for years without a homeowner realizing it. So, no matter how sincere someone is when they tell you they don't have wood damaging insects in their home, don't take their word at face value. They may be telling you the truth. As far as they know, they don't have termites or carpenter ants. But that doesn't mean you won't inherit the repair costs if they do.

The last thing anyone needs is to fall into a money pit. Yet that is exactly what can happen if a home has been damaged by subterranean termites. Those insects damage a home in unimaginable ways. They consume wood, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and sometimes 365 days a year. This weakens support timbers and warps the structure of a home. That can be hard to recover from.

While termite damage can be prevented, some people just don't make ongoing termite control a priority. That is a big mistake in Middle Tennessee. But you don't have to let their mistake be your mistake. With a WDO report, you'll have the information you need to make a sound investment.
