We had evidence of termites in our hardwood floors and needed the house to be treated.
Member Comments:
Northwest did the inspection and found extensive dry rot under the master bath as well as the termites in the floors. We'd had inspections every 5 years from a different termite company after seeing subterranean termites, and that other company had never noticed the dry rot. I felt this was the best inspection by far.
We had to tent the home to address the termite problem.
Northwest also noticed a moisture problem in the crawl space and recommended a vapor barrier. We've been in our house for 18 years and always noticed problems with doors closing in the winter. Since the vapor barrier went in, this problem has gone away. I'm really happy it's finally fixed.
I only wish I knew about Northwest sooner. There was a lot of water damage under our bathroom that another well known company failed to notice over multiple inspections, and I wish we'd caught it sooner.
