Buyer's Question : How serious should we take Drywood termites? Opinions from Home Owners /I am trying to buy a home (as-is) and this home is visually not the best out there and we want to spend our money to fix some cosmetics however we just found out that there are drywood termites. Summary of the report: Dry wood termites is found below a bedroom and garage.(sub area) and inspection company recommends fumigation for full guaranteed eradication of all drywood termite infestations One of my builder / investor friend who buys and fixes homes advised that these (drywood termites) are slow chewers and I would not spend money on fumigation unless there are some structural issue and inspection report did not show up anything that big. I plan to keep this home for 5 more years and would like your advise if you agree or disagree with my friend's statement above so that we can best spend our money on cosmetics than fumigation. PS: There are fungus/dry rot issues and we plan to take care of them separatelyFebruary 02 2014 - Mountain View00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
