Structural Damage Repair
Repair of structural moisture and insect damage is as unique a carpentry as interior finish carpentry is to framing carpentry. It takes skill and experience to evaluate this type of damage, perform the repair and prevent the causes of the damage. Hampton Roads Termite and Pest Control Inc. is a licensed Virginia contractor equipped with the equipment and personnel to handle this type of construction. The steps in any type of repair includes evaluating the damage, the need for specific repairs, a plan and well thought out preventative measures. Following are some of the services we can provide for you as a licensed pest control company and Virginia contractor:
- Evaluating damage – Termite and moisture related damage isn’t always obvious, it takes a trained eye to spot problems in seemingly structurally sound wood. We’re well trained in the evaluation process.
- Identifying damage – most carpenters, who may be excellent in their trade, probably know nothing about moisture damage or wood destroying insects, how they react to certain conditions and how far the damage might extend.
- Our Inspectors are well trained and have many years of experience in evaluation and identification of these problems and can initiate a plan for treatment, repair and prevention.
- Excessive moisture conditions are not only a problem by itself, which can cause extensive damage, it also attracts insects, especially wood destroying insects. Hampton Roads Termite and Pest Control Inc. can provide you with solutions to help you control high moisture conditions. These may include: creating a positive grade in crawl by adding sand, adding more openings around your foundations to improve airflow, installing sump pumps, moisture barriers, encapsulating and installing dehumidifiers which help reduce moisture content. Hopefully the bottom line will be just giving you some common sense advice, such as, installing gutters, cutting bushes away from vents, channeling water away from foundation, or advising you to have your duct work inspected and insulated properly.
Our goal at Hampton Roads Termite and Pest Control Inc. is not only to just treat the problem. It involves treating the problem, fixing the problem and preventing the problem from happening again. Please call us for a free inspection and let us give you the peace of mind in knowing your house is fully protected.
