Protecting Your Building

After spending countless days of work on a construction project, the last thing you want on your mind is the possibility of termites. Even if your building is built with regards to code and regulation, there is never a 100% wood material resistant to termites.

The first step is identifying if your building is at risk of an infestation. It is important to do routine inspections to make sure your building is safe. Termites are extremely damaging and can be detrimental to your building. Things to look for are termite wings and droppings, signs or damaged wood, and hollowed out wooden areas.

The best cure for a termite infestation is prevention. Prevent these pests from entering your building in the first place by using the proper treated lumber and other terminate-resistant materials and foundations. Perform routine inspections yourself, and call a professional to inspect as well to insure that you are not at risk. If your building already has an infestation the best thing to do is call a professional to access the damage.
