Termite Damage & Structural Repairs<br />

Termite Damage & Structural Repairs

Termites can cause critical damage to the structural integrity of your home, business, or property. Once we’ve gotten rid of the pest, we evaluate the need for structural repairs that involve beams, studs, joints, and other elements. Our structural repairs involve:

  • Stabilization with temporary supports like braces or shoring to prevent structural failure
  • Reinforcement with steel beams or veneer lumber on weakened areas
  • Applying wood preservatives to prevent future infestations
  • Replacing affected areas and other structural sound components
  • Aligning and leveling your structure to make sure it stands on its feet

Termite Damage & Wood Replacement

When termites have taken over your wood, sometimes replacing it all is the real solution. When there’s extensive wood damage from termite infestations, it can compromise your safety, which is why we offer wood replacement services, which include:

  • Safely removing damaged wood
  • Matching the materials to your original structure
  • Treating the replacement wood for termite prevention
  • Installing new wood carefully with all load-bearing requirements
  • Finishing and painting the replaced wood
  • Quality control

Signs of Termite Damage

Most property owners only identify signs of a termite infestation once it’s too late. It’s crucial to be on the lookout for them. Calling a termite damage repair expert before a colony has completely taken over your home can save you time and money in the long run. Some signs of termite damage are:

  1. Hollowed or crumbling wood
  2. Blisters in wood
  3. Mud tubes on walls
  4. Visible, flying termites (swarmers)
  5. Termite droppings or frass
  6. Cracked or bubbling paint
  7. Visible termite tunnels in drywall, plaster, or wood
  8. Sagging floors and ceilings
  9. Water accumulation or excessively damp areas near wood
  10. Faint clicking sounds
  11. Warped door frames
  12. Jamming doors and windows

Waste Disposal

Using proper safety measures, we remove asbestos debris, which we carefully label as hazardous waste and double bagged. We transport all unwanted materials to approved facilities.

Cleanup and Decontamination

Once we’re done, the work area is thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated. This includes wet wiping surfaces and using HEPA vacuum cleaners. Our workers also go through a decontamination process to prevent the spread of asbestos outside the area.

Addressing All Your Termite Damage Questions (FAQ)

How fast can a termite colony damage my home?
It depends on several factors: the size of the infestation, what species of termites are the culprits (underground termites cause damage faster than drywood termites), and how much wood makes up the structural foundation of your home. Significant damage can take several months or years, but most infestations go undetected until much structural damage has been caused.
Can termite damage actually be fixed?
Yes. Professional termite damage repair services like the one we offer here at Crawl Space ER can make all the necessary repairs and restore the integrity of your home. We’ll even go as far as preventing future infestations!
What are the causes of termite infestations?
Termite colonies infesting your property can be caused by excess moisture, wood-to-soil contact, cracks in your foundation, accumulation of debris, other termite colonies nearby, poorly maintained wood, and lack of regular inspections and preventative maintenance.
When should termite damage be fixed?
As soon as it’s detected!
Can termite-damaged wood be rescued or reused?
Wood severely damaged by termites cannot be reused or saved. Salvaging wood is only feasible when it has suffered minor damage.
What happens if termites aren't eliminated?
Termites that aren’t eliminated will continue chewing away at your property’s structural foundation. This can compromise the stability and safety of a building. It is crucial not to let termite infestation go untreated!
Will termite damage devalue my home?
Yes. When the integrity of your home has been compromised, it will devalue your home significantly.
What is the lifespan of a termite or termite colony?
Termites in the lower caste of their colonies live less, a few years or months, but queen termites can live for decades. Colonies can persist for decades, continually producing new members if left untreated.
How often should I examine my home for termite infestation or damage?
Having your home inspected for termite infestations every year is recommended, especially in places prone to termite activity. Detect problems before they severely damage your home!
