Damp and Timber Specialists for 50 years

Whether or not to buy a house with woodworm depends on several factors, including the severity of the infestation, the extent of the damage, and the cost of repairing the damage and treating the infestation.

If the woodworm infestation is severe and has caused significant damage to wooden structures or furniture in the house, it may be a good idea to avoid purchasing the property, as the cost of repairs and treatment can be significant. In addition, if the infestation has spread to other areas of the house, it may be difficult and expensive to fully eradicate it.

On the other hand, if the infestation is inactive or has yet to cause significant damage, it may be possible to treat the infestation and repair any damage without incurring a significant cost.

It’s important to have a professional inspect the property before your make a decision, as they can help determine the severity of the infestation and estimate the cost of treatment and repairs.

We can carry out a homebuyers survey on your behalf to determine the full extent of the problem, as well as advise you on the potential costs you may be facing should you purchase a property with woodworm. Contact us today on 0800 048 9488.
