Termite Wood Repair
Termite infestations typically remain untreated until major damage becomes obvious. Homes in the Bay Area are primarily constructed of wood. However, wooden framed homes are not the only structures threatened by termite activity. Homes made from other materials can host termite infestations, as there insects are capable of traveling through plaster, metal siding and more. After termites break through, they feed on floors, ceilings and furniture within the home. Most of the damage termites cause is not covered by standard homeowner insurance policies, leaving you to pick up the pieces. Contrary to popular belief, termites are not partial to aging wooden structures. In fact termites have been known to begin infestation within four days of completed construction.
Repairing Termite Wood Damage
Although moderate levels of termite damage can be repaired, measures should always be taken first to ensure that the termite infestation has been fully exterminated and that your home is protected against future infestations. Taking these steps will prevent costly repairs in the future. After your termites have been eliminated from the structure, the damaged wood members will need to be restored to ensure your safety. We offer full wood repair services for any termite treatments or fumigations we perform. We specialize in structural construction and repair. Our team of wood repair experts can tackle any structural termite repairs as well as restore decorative elements around your home like pergolas, trellises or decks.

Signs of Termite Activity
If you see any of these tell-tale signs of termite activity in your home, please contact Elite Bay Area Termite for an inspection.
Termites bore through wood, leaving holes to “kick-out” waste material and feces.
Subterranean termites live in the soil and build tubes through the base of the structure to infest the wood members.
As termites eat their way through your structure, they discard their waste via kick-out holes. These pellets can be found in small piles below infested areas.
Reproductive termites leave the nest and fly to new locations to spread the infestation.
