Effective Repair Solutions for Termite-Damaged Homes
Each year, throughout California, termites cause significant and costly damages that require urgent and extensive repairs. The damage from these insects can be very great, so it is imperative to contact specialists in a timely manner when you discover any amount of damage or infestation. Good Life Construction of North Highlands has been repairing termite damage for more than 10 years and we can provide great resources to help you with your problem. We have what it takes to protect your home and to provide long-lasting repairs, utilizing high-quality products and skilled carpenters.
When termites reside in a home for an extended period of time, they can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Unfortunately, this type of damage is not usually covered by homeowner’s insurance. Nevertheless, it is important to make repairs at the first signs of termite damage. Delaying repairs could result in even further damage and leave your family at risk of hazardous conditions.
The trouble is termite damage can go unnoticed for a while – months or even years. It is important to keep an eye out for any indications that you have or had a termite infestation.
There are several signs that indicate you might have termite damage in your home, including:
- Blisters in wood flooring
- Hard-to-open windows
- Wood damage behind walls or under floors
- Pencil-sized mud tubes on exterior walls
- Mounds of termite droppings
- Wood surfaces that sound hollow
- Maze-like designs in wooden structures
- Discarded termite wings near home access points
- Quiet clicking noises coming from walls
- Unexplained cracks on internal walls and ceilings
- Spongy or springy-feeling floors
- Tight-fitting doors
If you discover that you have termite damage and the termites are still present, you will need to hire a qualified termite control company to eliminate the colony. Once the termites have been removed, Good Life Construction can help you with all the repair work. We have extensive experience restoring all types of areas destroyed by termites, including siding, trim, framing, rafters, roofing, decking, subarea framing, walls, floors, and more. We have several options for how to repair the termite damage, including:
- Wood hardeners: When there's minimal termite damage, wood hardeners can be used to fill in the gaps and reinforce the remaining wood.
- Wood fillers: If the termite damage is severe enough that you can see the channels in the wood, we can use wood fillers to fill in the gaps left behind.
- Wood replacement: In cases where the damage is so extensive that the wood is no longer usable, we will completely replace the unsalvageable panels.
The good news is that most termite damage can be fixed. There are two main ways that termite-damaged wood can be repaired. One way is to replace damaged sections of wood entirely. Alternatively, you can add a wood support adjacent to the damaged wood. Adding a wood support is typically the less expensive option, but some damage will require a complete replacement.
