How Much Damage Can Termites Do To Your Home?
Termites eat wood from the inside out. In their natural environment, termites eat trees and tree stumps off the forest floor. But once inside your home, they can eat away the equity you have built up and turn your home into a Termite Buffet!
FACT: Termites attack over 2 million homes annually; causing 6 billion dollars in property damage. Unfortunately, without ANNUAL TERMITE INSPECTIONS, termites can go unnoticed for years by the homeowner while they silently attack and destroy your home from the inside out!
FACT: Termite damage is found in about 25% of the homes inspected. That figure rises to over 50% in homes that are more than 20 years old and have not had a recent termite inspection.
FACT: Once inside your home, millions of hungry termites can quickly eat and demolish floor joists, flooring, door & window frames and baseboards. But they don't stop there! Termites often follow the wooden frame work of the house to upper levels and floors, creating havoc as they go until the house is completely destroyed - or is professionally treated!
4 Costly Mistakes Every Home Buyer, Home Owner & Investor Should Avoid
#1. Getting a cheap, inferior termite inspection or worse yet, no termite inspection at all. Buying a home is probably the most expensive investment you will ever make. This is no time to shop for a cheap termite inspection just to save a few dollars when you consider the high costs of repairing damage caused by millions of silent, hungry termites that can quickly eat and demolish your floor joists, floors, window & door frames and major structural supports.
#2. Choosing the wrong termite inspector with minimal training and little or no experience, who only takes 15-30 minutes to inspect your home. Do yourself a favor and get the best and most knowledgeable and experienced termite inspector you can afford so you can enjoy peace of mind and get the quality termite inspection you deserve. Making the wrong decision here can end up costing you thousands of dollar$$$ in repair bills later.
#3. Failure to identify and eliminate termite-conducive conditions near your home’s foundation. Excessive moisture, wooden mulch, old landscaping boards, tree stumps & other earth-to-wood contacts act like magnets to nearby termite colonies.
#4. Not getting an annual termite inspection and not having a termite protection plan for your home. Enjoy peace of mind and ongoing home protection with our low-cost, long-lasting chemical barrier treatment service.
