Industry best practices dictate that HOAs undergo yearly termite inspections (TCP reports) and treatments to protect buildings from termites.

TCP Reports also prevent costly damages that termites and other wood destroying organisms cause. See termite control for HOA.

At the very least, your termite control expert must provide a yearly inspection report for each building in the HOA.

Termite reports will detail findings of wood destroying organisms, such as dry wood and subterranean termites, as well as any damage caused by them.

To get the greatest value out of termite inspections, most, if not all unit interiors should be inspected and treated. See Best Participation in TCPs.

Savvy HOA community managers and HOA board members will have prearranged a price for necessary termite treatments before the project begins.

This arrangement ensures that there are no surprise expenses related to the inspections and local treatments in the community. See termite treatment types.

Upon completion of the entire inspection and treatment project, the only remaining issue to address would be the structural damage found at the time of inspection.

TCP reports can give enough detail to serve as a roadmap for the needed repairs in your community. But this works best when you choose the right vendor.

As is true when undertaking any major project, proper planning and prioritizing is key to maximizing productivity and ROI (Return on Investment) when conducting major wood repair projects in an HOA.

Don’t treat the termite inspection reports merely as a receipt of inspections done and infestations treated.

Your inspection reports act as an MRI of the buildings in your HOA.

report for repairsYour termite control professional should provide you with termite inspection reports (TCP reports) promptly and with enough details that the reports themselves can be converted into a scope of work from which you can acquire competitive bids.

Details of the damage found should include:

  1. Damage Location
  2. Lumber Type Damaged
  3. Measurements and Dimensions of Damage
  4. Specific Recommended Action (Repairing Existing Wood or Replacing with new Wood)
  5. Cost to Perform Recommended Work

Here are examples of different levels of detail that termite control companies may provide an HOA.

Please notice the difference in detail at each level. Then, as a manager or volunteer community leader, it is imperative that you make purchasing decisions with complete information and zero ambiguity.

An average vendor provides no information about what their recommended course of action is.

Hiring someone with the vague promise that they will “just fix it” is not enough to meet fiduciary duty.
