What You Need to Know About Termites and Repairs


Depending on how bad the damage is, fixing termite damage can be hard and take a long time. You might not know that you have taken on too much termite damage until your deck starts to sag, your fence posts start to bend, or your floors start to fall apart.

But did you know that there are a number of other pests that eat wood besides termites? Along with termites, other species can do a lot of damage to your home’s structure and cause more than $5 billion worth of damage every year in the United States. Some of these species are dry-rot fungus and wood-boring bugs. Vista Pest Control, your friendly bug, mosquito, and lawn care expert, wants you to know that you are not alone if you need to fix your house because of termite damage. Vista Pest Control offers full home repair services done by qualified contractors on-site. With these services, your home will be back to how it was before you had termites.

Termites Attack the Structure of Your Home

Subterranean termites will attack the bottom of a house, including the rim joists, floor joists, subflooring, and wood siding, with great force when they swarm in the spring.

Termite colonies never stop growing or eating wood, and depending on how big they are, they can do a lot of damage fast. A yearly check is a must if you want to protect your home from termites.

One of our employees remembers going to a house that Vista Pest Control had just started taking care of to check for termites. When he got there, he saw that a termite invasion that was still going on had done a lot of damage to the house.

When they hire Vista Pest Control to fix termite damage, they know the job will be done right and to the standard they expect.

How to Fix Damage Done by Termites

What do you need to know about possible fixes to your home if termites have caused damage? Here are some typical steps that could be taken:

  • Wood replacement: You need to get rid of and replace any broken wood in your home that can’t be fixed. This could mean rebuilding beams, columns, baseboards, trim, and other structural and non-structural parts.
  • Repair and restore: When the damaged wood has been replaced, your house will need to be fixed and brought back to the way it was before the damage. This could mean fixing or replacing the flooring, painting the walls, fixing any damage done by termites, and solving other problems.
  • Prevention: This is the key to keeping termites from coming back after the first damage has been fixed. This includes regular inspections, quick treatment of termites by a certified pest management professional, and getting rid of things that are good for termites, like too much moisture, not letting wood touch the soil, not using too much mulch, and getting rid of old tree stumps and wood from the yard.
