Q: What causes over $5 million in damage to homes throughout the United States every year, but is rarely covered by homeowner’s insurance policies (or Federal disaster relief funds, for that matter)?
A: Termites. Common, everyday, tiny yet exceptionally destructive termites who can silently be at work chewing through the wood structures inside your walls, ceilings, flooring and foundations for many years without you ever knowing they are there.
Termites live on wood. A substantial component of most homes in the U.S. is wood. The alarming facts are that termite infestations do more damage to homes every year than fires and floods combined.
