Is Cosmetic Termite Damage Easy to Fix?
When caught early enough, termite damage can be repaired easily through simple cosmetic procedures. Some of these simple repairs include touching up areas where the paint peeled due to termite activity, cleaning up wood shavings or mud tubes on the exterior of the home, and more. Even if you address simple cosmetic repairs on your own, it’s still important to have a professional inspect your home for hidden termite damage that you may have missed.
Is Termite Damage Ever Beyond Repair?
Although rare, termite infestations have been known to cause irreparable damage to homes. When this is the case, it’s likely the infestation has been ongoing and undetected for more than a decade or two. However, in some cases, when the infestation has been active for decades, the damage caused by termites in a home can still be reversed.
