Termites. Just the word scares most homeowners because of the damage these insects can do to your home.
They can reside in your home for years before you realize they are there.
That’s why termite control is so important.
If left unattended, these devils will drain your bank account. How? Termites cause over five-billion dollars in damage to US homes every year.
Like everyone else, they love the Carolinas. Can you blame them? But, they’re not welcome here, since homeowners’ insurance doesn’t cover repairs.
Ways to deter termites from entering your home.
Eliminate or reduce moisture in or around your home.
Make sure water from gutters or rain spouts runs away from your home.
There should be no wood on soil near your house. This might include firewood, dead trees, etc.
Quickly repair any rotting wood, fascia or roof shingles.
Install a vapor barrier in your crawlspace to help minimize moisture from reaching the floor joists or subfloor.
