Signs of Termite Damage or Activity to Watch Out For
Termites live off a regular diet of cellulose, which is a plant fiber found in wood. As a result, they love wooden structures and will feast on the various elements of a home in large numbers. Detecting an infestation early is difficult since termites are adept at keeping themselves hidden. Often, a property owner realizes an infestation is present when serious damage to wooden parts of the structure makes it obvious. By knowing the types of damage termites leave, you can make an informed decision by calling a professional to assess the damage and present a solution.
Some signs to pay attention to include:
- Peeling paint that resembles water damage
- Wood that sounds hollow when tapped on
- Sagging or damaged drywall
- Buckling wooden floorboards
- Small holes in the walls
- Crumbled or damaged wood
- Stuck door and window frames
- Excessively squeaky floorboards for no apparent reason
- Mounds of frass or termite pellets that resemble coffee grounds
- Discarded wings
- Winged reproductive termites
If you notice any of these signs, call Castle Pest Management immediately. The quicker one of our specialists can inspect your home or building and identify the infestation and the severity of the damage, the sooner we can get rid of the termites, make the necessary repairs, and save you money by preventing further destruction.
Why Repairs Are Just as Important as Treatment
If you have a significant termite infestation, having a pest control specialist swiftly take action by implementing an effective treatment program is essential. But if you’ve had a termite infestation controlled by a professional or from your own efforts, it’s not wise to just leave the damaged wood as it is. Any termite damage—whether minor and cosmetic or major and structural—should be repaired to preserve the value of your property and maintain its structural integrity.
By giving us a call, we can send one of our experienced technicians to your home or business to perform a detailed inspection to determine the scope of the damage and recommend the best repair options for you to take. The moment you approve of our estimate, we will get started on all the necessary repairs.

When our experts have completed an inspection and assessed the termite damage to your property, we usually employ one of two methods of repairing the affected wood: New wood reinforcements, or complete replacements of damaged wood.
New wood reinforcements
This method is applied for minor to moderate or superficially termite-damaged wood. We measure and shape new wooden boards and use them to support your existing wood. This is a cheaper repair option in comparison to full replacements and is sufficient for many residential and commercial structures.
Complete replacements of damaged wood
This method is done when the wooden elements of a structure have been extensively damaged. This means the wood has been hollowed out significantly to the point that putting weight on it could lead to collapse. While this is the more expensive option, it is a must if you wish to preserve your home or business’s structure or eliminate the safety hazard the damage brings. In this case, we tear out the damaged wood and install fresh, new wood to the deteriorated sections of your building.
We highly recommend not DIYing these types of repairs and enlisting the help of a licensed professional. We have the construction knowledge and tools to perform effective repairs for termite damage and are aware of all the safety precautions to execute such projects. Termite control and repair solutions are our specialties, so you can have peace of mind that we will get the job done right when you contact us.
