Termite Facts & Damage Repairs

Termite damage restoration may be challenging and time-consuming, depending on the severity of the damage. If you are dealing with termite damage, you may only realize how much you have taken on once your deck begins to sag, your fence posts start to buck, or your flooring begins to buckle.

However, did you know that several other insects consume wood in addition to termites? Along with termites, other species, including wood-boring beetles, dry-rot fungi, and others, may drastically weaken the structural integrity of your home, causing more than $5 billion in damages are caused each year in the US. 

Your friendly pest, mosquito, and termite control expert, Poway CA, wants you to know that you are not alone if your home has to be repaired due to termite damage. Poway Pest Control Company offers thorough home restoration services by skilled experts who operate on-site to return your property to the condition it was before the appearance of termites.


According to Nathan Pops, Service Manager (WDO) at Poway’s Auburn office, subterranean termites will brutally attack a home’s underside, including rim joists, floor joists, subflooring, and wood siding.

Termite colonies may do significant damage quickly, depending on their size. Pops explains that termite colonies never cease expanding or devouring wood. Protecting your home with a regular termite inspection is so important.

Pops remembers going to a home that Poway had just begun maintaining to do a termite inspection. When he arrived, he discovered a termite infestation that was still strong and had already severely damaged the home.

“A good portion of the back of the house, including two sliding glass doors and an entry door, had to be replaced due to the damage,” he asserts. The total amount due was “tens of thousands.”

When homeowners choose Poway Pest Control Company to fix termite damage, they can be sure that the job will be done correctly and to the standard they expect.

What information do you need about potential repairs for termite damage to your home? Here are some typical actions that might be taken:

Wood replacement: If any of the wood in your house has sustained damage that cannot be repaired, it must be removed and replaced. This could include changing structural and non-structural components, such as baseboards, trim, beams, or columns.

Once the harmed wood has been replaced, your house must be repaired and returned to its pre-damage state. This can include repairing or replacing flooring, patching and painting the walls, and correcting any other termite-related damage.

After the damage has been repaired: it is crucial to take preventative measures to fight against further termite infestations. Regular inspections, prompt termite treatment by a licensed pest management specialist, elimination of the conditions that encourage termites, such as reducing excess moisture, maintaining suitable ventilation, preventing wood-to-soil contact, avoiding over-mulching, and removal of old tree stumps and wood from yards, are all part of this.
