Where does termite damage start?
Different termite species damage unique areas. Subterranean termites are the most common type in the Northwest. They live below ground and a single colony can reach the size of a football field.
Subterranean termites prefer damp wood. This termite species are ground-dwelling but will extend a colony up and into the home. Damage occurs in the walls, ceilings, and floors. Damage from termites appears similar to water damaged areas. This includes swollen ceilings, floors, and buckling.
Drywood termites target dry wood. This species is often carried in from purchases of antiques. If an antique has crackling around the veneer or finish it may contain termites. Newer homes don’t often have a drywood termite infestation. If you do have one, visible damage will occur in the paint and finish of a structure’s walls.
