Tips for a Successful Termite Repair

Termites are a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Since their presence often goes undetected until damage is substantial, the eradication and repair process is often extensive. By learning more about termite repair, navigating this issue appropriately should be achievable.


Consider DIY Treatment


For those who don’t have the funds available to hire a professional contractor or simply want to save some money, self-treatment and termite repair is an option. Some options available include fumigation or localized treatments. Localized treatments have the advantage of avoiding potential residual fumes or chemicals from fumigation.


Keep A Detailed Log of Damages and Repairs


A log of the extent of damage and repair measures implemented is important for several reasons. According to Angie’s List, “Your insurance coverage may include termite protection. If the home is new, you may have reason to seek legal redress. Eventually, if you decide to sell your home, the law requires that you reveal past damage.” These records are essential for insurance purposes and a potential future home sale. In the event that you have home insurance, these records will be utilized when an insurance agent reviews the claim for repairs due to termite damage.


Professional Inspection


While you may be able to detect the presence of an infestation or make simple cosmetic repairs on your own, enlisting the help of a professional is always the recommended option. Be sure to contact us at Times Up Termite if you are fed up with the damage caused by these insects and need some tips for successful termite repair.
