Insect & Termite Damage Repair
Let Us Fix Any Structural Damage Caused by These Pests
Termites and other insects can be highly destructive to property. In fact, damage can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. What’s worse is that most of this damage is not covered by insurance policies, leaving you to pay for it out of pocket.
It’s important to deal with insect damage as soon as you notice any issues, especially if you find an active termite infestation in your home. The sooner you can get structural damage repair underway, the quicker you can remedy the issue and protect your property from further destruction.
Identifying Termite Damage
Maybe you’ve noticed something that could indicate an insect problem but you aren’t sure if it’s insect damage or simply water damage. Unfortunately, the symptoms often look very similar. Termites easily affect homes primarily made of wood, but even if your home is covered in brick, you might still have termites. Termites can get behind brick, metal siding, plaster and a variety of other materials.
So how do you tell if your home is being affected by termites or other insects? Here are some signs of infestation:
- You see crumbling, damaged wood with what looks like a maze of tunnels in the wood.
- You have drywall that is drooping or discolored or has small holes.
- There are tubes of mud around your foundation or behind siding and baseboards.
- You smell something that is similar to mold or mildew.
- You see discarded termite wings around the home. Termites shed their wings after they mature.
If you suspect that your home might have an active insect infestation, it’s best to call a professional exterminator and then call Castle Construction to repair the damage.
