What To Expect From M-tech Exterminators Depending on the location and extent of the damage, and the building materials required to fix it, repairs can be complicated and costly. So catching the infestation early is important. Structural Damage In an average year, termites are responsible for $1 billion to $2 billion in property damage. Most of this damage is not covered by standard homeowner insurance policies. Termite infestations commonly go undetected until obvious signs of damage occur. Treating the Damage Discovering damage at your home is an unsettling experience, but a trusted pest control professional can help. How to Repair Termite Damage Two Routes to Consider There are two main ways to repair termite damage to wood: Replace damaged sections of wood entirely or Add a wood support adjacent to damaged wood. In most cases, the repair will be simpler and less expensive if you add a wood support to damaged wood. This type of repair works for many structural and non-structural repairs. Repairs that involve replacing structural supports are the most complicated. It is crucial that adequate temporary support be provided to maintain the home's integrity during repairs. Contacting several local contractors for estimates may be a good idea before repairing termite damage. Treat for Termites Before Making Repairs Although termite damage may be reversed through professional repair, homeowners should first call a local termite specialist. Repairs should not be made until a licensed pest professional has confirmed that there are no longer termites present and the risk of further infestation has been eliminated. The termite inspector will be able to offer services to deal with active infestations as well as preventatives. He or she can also check to ensure all termite damage is accounted for, so you know exactly what needs to be repaired. Taking these steps will prevent further costly repairs in the future. After ensuring that your home is free of termites and risks of future infestation, existing damage should be repaired. Prevent Costly Termite Damage Repairs Structural failure can be prevented or is much less likely to occur with annual termite inspections and treatments. If you believe you’ve found termite damage in your home or just want some peace of mind, call an Mtech termite specialist for a free inspection.
