An Accident Waiting to Happen
With summer fast approaching, now is the time to take a good hard look at your deck and verandah. Do you have termite damage? Visibly it may appear to be in good condition. However, having been exposed to the elements of nature, you may find you are now harboring some unwanted guests. This can cause considerable structural damage to your main entertainment area. Your family and friends are placed in considerable risk of accidental injury.
The termite damage pictured here was only discovered by our pest inspector carrying out an annual routine termite inspection. The termite damage was centered in the main support structure of the deck. It was completely invisible to the home owner until the face of the structural beam was removed. The deck could have eventually collapsed causing serious injuries to friends and loved ones.
