Home Construction Faults in Cypress,TX

 

Erroneous construction practices in Cypress,TX are often the culprit why there are infestation problems.

Problematic habits and practices during the construction phase of the house can easily cause major complications in the integrity of the house against wood-eating bugs.

 

Following are some issues that can cause infestation problems in Cypress,TX:

 

  • Drainage Issues: The grading of your Cypress,TX landscape can be faulty, leading to insufficient drainage of water away from your home. You may also have eaves that are insufficiently extended, or downspouts that are not long enough to carry run-off away from your home’s foundation. All of these elements lead to moisture along your foundation--an ideal home for infestation.
  • Contact between Earth and Wood: Wooden structural elements should have the proper treatment and covers when it must meet earth or soil foundations, otherwise neglect will lead to a freeway of termites from outside to your house and an infestation develops.
  • Leftover Building Materials: Remember that subterranean bugs take their nourishment from cellulose, and cellulose can be contained in backfilled construction debris, especially wood. This also goes to say that wood left in CMUs or masonry units can be infested, and so can leaving grade stakes, form boards and spacers in slabs.
  • Unguided Landscaping: Attention should be given to the landscaping effort around the house. The wrong grading of landscaping that involves gravel lets moisture accumulate and set around the house, as well as its base. Moist wood is clearly an attractive site for termite dwelling.

Keeping moisture away from the foundation and structure of the house, as well as prevention of untreated contact points of soil and wooden parts of the house should be observed to prevent the settlement of termites in your house. One is to prevent wood to get in contact with the soil as much as possible and two, have a good drainage system so the soil is left dry.
