Asked by Nola, Hartville, OH • Thu Aug 30, 2012
We are looking to purchase a home that comes with a warranty for the sentricon termite monitoring system. The seller has agreed to pay for an additional year of the monitoring warranty.
During our home inspection we found that there were new pieces of treated wood along the wall where the basement met the bottom of the garage, and along the other foundation wall at the top.
Our home inspector could not find any damage, it had apparently been repaired, but his inspection was limited by the sheet rock ceiling. We could not see the beams. He said this was strange for a field stone basement, but did not say it was a red flag.
Is this a red flag? What are other reasons this may have been done? I contacted a pest company who said they too would have a limited idea of current or past damage unless a portion of the sheet rock could be removed.
Help! We have not signed the P&S yet.
