Termite Damage

The fact is that if you have termites then there is a strong likelihood that you may have some type of damage.  Termites are cryptic by nature and don’t want to be found.  Often the damage that you see is not all that there is.  It’s important in a town like Southington to have a termite inspection every year since the town is known for having a lot of termite activity.

Replacing Termite Damage

Many people automatically assume that if you have termite damage that a repair or replacement of damaged wood will need to take place.  While this may turn out to be true, there’s a better than average chance that it may not happen.

In order for termite damage replacement to be needed, the damage must be considered structural.  A licensed contractor or home inspector can make this determination but there is a strong possibility that this may never happen.  A pest control provider can’t make this determination unless they’re a state licensed home improvement contractor as well.

Although termites cause billions of dollars’ worth of damage every year around the world, they cause much more damage that is superficial and does not need to be repaired.

Where Does Termite Damage Occur?

Termite damage can occur anywhere but the following are the most common places:

  • Ÿ  Sills
  • Ÿ  Garage frames
  • Ÿ  Floor joist

Remember, it’s important to have your home evaluated to see if the damage you see is structural.  Don’t make the assumption that it is because there is a very strong possibility that it may not be.
