Termite can cause extensive damage to the structure of homes and commerical building, as well as the fixtures, fittings and floor coverings inside.
$1.1 billion is spent annually in the United States to repair damage caused by termites. Termite damage, in most cases, may not be visible for at least 12 to 18 months beyond the initial infestation.
You cannot insure your home against termite damage as you can against other natural threats and yet the huge amount of damage annually gets little or no publicity.
Termites are a hidden danger. Be sure you are protected.
