Tom Corbett of Tomacor is a top-rated home inspector with decades of experience under his belt. He's also a strong advocate for his clients (often at the expense of his relationships with real estate agents) and is one of the most vigilant and outspoken people we've met when it comes to home safety standards.
In this segment from a wide-ranging discussion about home inspections, Tom shows home buyers how they can tell whether a property has been treated for termites or carpenter ants. Termite damage is much more common in the Chicago area than many buyers realize, Tom says, and can be enough for many buyers to cancel their purchase, or at least demand repairs.
