Termites are the last thing any homeowner wants. Termites are one of the most destructive pests when it comes to property damage. They are sneaky irritants that can go undetected in a home for years. These, and other wood destroying organisms (WDOs) such as powder post beetles, old house borers and wood-decaying fungi can cause thousands of dollars in damage, if left untreated for an extended period of time.
If you attempt to sell your property and discover that it has termites, the buyer will require that you repair the termite damage before closing. Either you will have to pay the bill yourself or try to find a new buyer.
A termite colony weakening support beams and ruining load-bearing walls can be devastating to the structure of your home.
Repairing this type of damage is challenging, if not impossible.
