Termite colonies that have been active for about 5 years can cause extensive damage on a property. Termites cause an estimated 5 billion dollars in damages nationwide annually.
Termite damage can appear in several ways or in several areas. Common termite damage includes damaged or hollowed-out wood, broken flooring, sagging ceilings, peeling paint, torn insulation, and more.
Termite infestations can cost a pretty penny to repair. The expenses of fixing structural damage can set a homeowner back several thousand dollars depending on the severity of the infestation.
For WDI reports, a professional pest control company such as Russell’s will thoroughly inspect a property and report on either the presence or absence of termites in the home or business.
Termites target any source of wood. This includes support beams, flooring, posts, wall studs, piles of lumber, fallen logs, decks, outdoor furniture, and other items in or outside your home.
Homes that have had past termite infestations remain safe to purchase. As long as all precautions are taken and a WDI report is provided, it is completely normal to buy a home with termite damage.
Minor termite damage can sometimes be fixed by yourself. However, if you have extensive damage from a termite infestation, it’s important to enlist the help of a professional contractor.
