Termite damage to a wall in a home - Keep termites away form your home with Forest Pest Control in FL

It’s normal to get a sinking feeling in your stomach when you discover that your home, the place where you’ve invested so much time and money, is under attack by termites. Termites are notorious for causing extensive damage to homes and buildings here in Central Florida, often leaving homeowners frustrated and in need of costly repairs. But how much does it cost to repair termite damage?

The answer can vary quite a bit based on the nature of the infestation and how long it’s been going on. So, let’s talk about some factors that can influence how much termite repairs cost, and what you can do to prevent them.

Signs of Termite Damage 

Termites are relentless pests that work silently and are hidden from sight. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to be unaware of an infestation for years before the damage becomes visible. 

Some early warning signs of a termite infestation include:

  • Hollow-sounding wood when tapping 
  • Crumbing wood 
  • Stuck doors and windows 
  • Wings and/or droppings left behind near doors and windows 
  • Blisters in flooring 
  • Peeling paint resembling water damage 
  • Moldy smells in your home 

Termite infestations not only damage the cosmetic elements of your home, but they also attack and weaken the structural integrity of your home causing emotional distress and costly repairs.

Types of Termite Damage and Cost of Repair 

Repair costs for termite damage cost United States homeowners an astounding $5 billion per year. We’ve seen ranges from as little as a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands for individual cases. The following are some of the types of damage that termites cause.

Cosmetic Repair

Much more affordable than structural repair, homeowners can even DIY many necessary cosmetic repairs. These are the simpler issues that termites often cause:

  • Floor discoloration
  • Wall discoloration 
  • Blistered flooring
  • Chipped paint

Structural Repair

If your structural damage is extensive, you will have to hire a structural engineer. They might find it necessary to conduct some of the following services:

  • Rotted truss replacement
  • Drywall repair
  • Wood siding replacement

Additional Repairs

Termites are infamous for the damage they do to wood, and the cost of repair comes down to the cost of that wood replacement. If termites have gotten into structural beams or load-bearing walls, you could be facing an incredibly costly repair. 

  • Electrical. Not even your electrical wiring is safe from termites, who will happily chew through wiring at worst risking electrical fire, and at best costing you a visit from your local electrician. 
  • Vent and Duct Cleaning. This can be an effective preventative measure and is necessary in the case of a discovered infestation. 
  • Termite Protection. An important step before investing in repairs, the cost of termite extermination varies depending on the size, severity, and location of the infestation.
