Is it necessary to get one?

What Is A Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR)?
New Jersey is one of many states that mandates homebuyers receive a WDIR for a lending institution to grant them a mortgage. A Wood Destroying Insect Report includes comprehensive information on your potential home’s presence or absence of wood-destroying insects like termites, carpenter ants, and other equal offenders, explain the pest control experts at Viking.
A WDIR is required to answer two primary questions:
- Is there any evidence of a wood-destroying insect infestation in the home?
- If yes, is there any evidence the outbreak was treated by previous owners?
Along with other inspections, a WDIR can help you understand and identify your home’s exact condition before you sign the deal.
Why Is a New Jersey WDIR Important?
When you receive your WDIR, you will receive a legal certificate proving that a Viking Pest Control professional has inspected your home for the presence of wood-destroying insects and subsequent damages. If your new home is clear of wood-destroying insects, you will receive a signed certificate stating that your home is safe, free from injury, and ready to be yours.
What Are Wood Destroying Insects?
Wood destroying insects are pests that can cause structural damage to the wooden structures inside and surrounding your home. The most common wood-destroying insects in New Jersey are termites, carpenter ants, and carpenter bees. Termites are notorious for eating wood and weakening the structural integrity of homes, while carpenter ants and carpenter bees dig tunnels in wood to build nests, explain the pest control professionals at Viking.
Of all the many breeds of household pests, there is one that new homeowners fear the most– wood-destroying insects. WDIs consistently cause an estimated $5 billion in property damage every year. Obtaining a mandated WDIR is the most effective way to safeguard your home.
