Termite Facts and Damage Repairs

Depending on the extent of the damage, termite damage repair can be a difficult and time-consuming operation. When dealing with termite damage, you might not realize you have taken on too much until your deck starts to sag, your fence posts start to bend, or your flooring start to cave in.

However, did you know that there are several pests that eat wood in addition to termites? Along with termites, other species like dry-rot fungus, wood-boring beetles, and others can seriously compromise the structural integrity of your house, resulting in more than $5 billion in damage each year in the United States. If your home suffers termite damage and requires repair, Santee Pest Control, your amiable pest, mosquito, and grounds care expert, wants you to know that you are not alone. Complete house repair services are provided by Santee Pest Control and are carried out by professional contractors who work on-site. These services will restore your home to its pre-termite condition.

Termites Attack the Structural Integrity of Your House

The underside of a home, including the rim joists, floor joists, and subflooring, as well as the wood siding, will be ruthlessly attacked by subterranean termites, which swarm in the spring of the year.

Termite colonies never stop expanding or devouring wood, and depending on their size, they are capable of causing serious harm in a short period of time. That is why safeguarding your home from termites makes having an annual inspection so crucial.

One of our professionals can remember going to a house that Santee Pest Control had just started taking care of to conduct a termite inspection. When he arrived, he discovered a termite infestation that was still active and had already done significant damage to the house.

The Procedure for Termite Repair

What information do you need to be aware of regarding potential repairs for termite damage to your home? Here are some typical actions that could be taken:

  • Wood replacement: If any of the wood in your home has sustained damage that cannot be repaired, it must be taken out and replaced. This could entail changing both structural and non-structural components, like baseboards or trim, as well as beams or columns.
  • Repair and restoration: Once the harmed wood has been replaced, your home will need to be repaired and brought back to its pre-damage state. This can entail repairing or replacing flooring, patching and painting the walls, and correcting any other termite-related damage.
  • Prevention: After the damage has been repaired, it is crucial to take preventive measures to ward off further termite infestations. Regular inspections, prompt termite treatment by a licensed pest management specialist, elimination of the conditions that encourage termites, such as reducing excess moisture, maintaining suitable ventilation, preventing wood-to-soil contact, avoiding over-mulching, and removal of old tree stumps and wood from yards, are all part of this.
