A termite colony of 60,000 workers can consume one foot of a 2”x4” in about 4 months!
Termites contribute to an outstanding 2 billion dollars of damage every year to homes in the U.S. alone, and although termites can be found in most areas of the country, they are most prevalent in more moist areas, such as Hampton Roads.
Crawl spaces are often a homes biggest trouble spot. Termites start by climbing the foundation walls, then they eat their way through your sill plate and move on to your beams, joist and subfloor.
Most homeowners rarely if ever enter their crawl spaces, so it could be years before you’re even aware of the damage that they have caused. Often this damage comes to light during a termite and moisture inspection while you are in the process of selling your home.
