One significant way that termites, ants, mice, and other pests enter a crawl space is through open vents. If the wood of your home is showing signs of damage from wood-eating or wood-boring insects such as termites or carpenter ants, Dry Pro Foundation and Crawlspace Specialists is here to help you. And because they're most often in your crawl space, it could be years before you're even aware of the damage they're causing.
We offer free crawl space repair quotes in Concord, Charlotte, Gastonia; Rock Hill, SC and many areas nearby.
Carpenter ants create smooth passages, or "galleries", in wood (top), while termite galleries (bottom) are rough and ragged.
While encountering winged termites or ants outside of the home is not necessarily a sign of an infestation in your home, you should take special note if you see swarming inside your home. Swarming ants and termites inside a home are attracted to light, and they can often be found around windows and doors.

Winged Carpenter Ants (top) have pinched-in waists, elbowed antennas, and forewings that are longer than their hind wings. Winged Termites (bottom) have a uniformed waist, straight antennae, and wings of equal size.
Before any repairs are done to your crawl space or other damaged wood, all pest infestations should be completely eliminated. If you stack firewood alongside your home, you're inviting termites, carpenter ants, and other pests that live there to spread to your home.
However, we respect that infestations do occur, and that you may need services to repair your crawl space and structural wood. If your home has been damaged by pests, we're ready to help you restore your crawl space and help keep it pest-free for many years to come.
If crawl space structural wood is damaged, the floors above may sink or be uneven, and doors may jam.

Too often, a home is repaired while enough of the pest infestation remains for the colony to recover and infest the repaired areas. In crawl spaces, damaged or rotting beams should be completely replaced, or a sister beam can be installed to reinforce compromised structural wood. Borate-based products and similar treatments are safe, non-toxic ways to eliminate pests such as termites, ants, cockroaches, fleas, and other pests. The crawl space vents should be sealed off to prevent termites, ants, and other pests from accessing them, and the walls and floors should be covered with a durable plastic liner.
