Additionally, remember that termites are attracted to decaying wood so make sure you assess any potential risks for infestation.
If left untreated, wood rot can be found in a variety of areas, such as:
To ensure your home is safe for potential buyers, an experienced building inspector will often examine the wood in detail - especially when there's a fresh coat of paint. Investing in a comprehensive house inspection provides you with invaluable peace of mind that it meets appropriate standards and is ready to be sold.
