Termite infestations are one household event that is easily preventable. Yet, numerous homeowners fail to take the time to protect their investment and property. Then, when termites invade and infest the home, they are shocked to learn that termite treatment and damage repair costs are not something covered under homeowner’s insurance!
The costs of preventative care are far less than the average costs of fixing termite damages. To get an inspection of your home every year runs around $100 compared to the several thousand to tens of thousands of dollars of damage termites can cause.

In some cases, you may even need to remove siding from the exterior to properly make repairs.
