Termite Damage & Wood Replacement Services

Replacement Information

Termites infest close to a million Southern California homes annually and your homeowner’s insurance policy does not cover the cost of termite damage. No matter where or how your home is built, it is susceptible to termites. You can’t always see termites because they feed undetected. Termite workers attack the wood in your home from the inside out and infestations can go undiscovered until the wood is almost completely destroyed. Using a state licensed General Contractor for the complexities of wood replacement is recommended as Kilter Termite and Pest Control will be able to pull any permits required to complete your project by code.

Replacing or Repairing Termite Damaged Wood

Replacing or repairing wood damaged by termites and rot is never a clean or fun job, but Kilter Termite and Pest Control can help. Termites eat and destroy drywood from the inside out, so if you can see termite damage you can bet that severe damage has been done internally to the infested wood. Many times it is crucial that damaged wood be replaced to preserve the integrity of the house or structure. Replacement of termite infested wood is Kilter’s Specialty. We have two full time wood replacement crews that do all of the replacement and repairs in house, something that a lot of our competitors cannot say/offer.

How Do They Damage Your Home?

Dry wood termites typically spread to infest more than one area in your home. Damage caused by dry wood termites is usually hidden and not noticed until it is quite extensive and very costly to repair. Once in, dry wood termites can infest virtually any part of your home. Wood trim, siding, rafters, window frames, stairs, even picture frames and furniture. When Drywood Termites are found inside the home in frames and furniture, an interior swarm at some point had occurred. This increases the possibility of King Wall Stud infestation and could potentially require opening of the wall to replace the wood members.

Small cracks and openings in the exterior of your home are an invitation to termites. Termites only need a crack 1/64″ in the exterior of your home to get in and establish a colony. Termites work twenty four hours per day. Like a colony of ants, “worker” termites bring food to the colony through tunnels. These tunnels are cut through the very structure of your home, work continues around the clock. The only preventative measure against replacement of termite infested wood is to install a long lasting product into or on the timbers.

  • How does the Quarterly plan work?

    On your first visit we will treat the interior and exterior of your home, eliminating most pests you have in and around your home. During that initial visit we also create a barrier around your home. This will allow the treatment to work on all the pests trapped inside the barrier and stop any new pests from getting in.  After that initial visit we will come out quarterly to maintain the barrier around your home. We normally only need to treat the interior once per year and the exterior barrier every 3 months. You may see an uptick in activity the first few days after each treatment as the pests try to get away but after a week you should be pest free.  If you need us, call us as our service calls are free.   

  • What is your warranty?

    All pest services come with a full warranty and free service calls in between your scheduled visits. Even our One time service has a 30 day warranty.

  • What if I notice pests in-between my scheduled sprays?

    If you are on a service plan with us, SERVICE CALLS ARE FREE so just give us a call and we will come treat.

  • What happens after my warranty expires?

    Your warranty will never expire as long as you maintain your regular pest service with us.

  • Can’t I just treat the pests myself?

    Yes, you can but it will not be as effective as using a professional. The reason there are so many pest control companies is because it is hard to control pest infestations.  Our licensed technicians know exactly how to build up and maintain a pest barrier around your home and the products we use are not available to the general public. 

  • What is the Difference Between Pest Control and an Exterminator?

    Pest control and extermination are two terms that are often used interchangeably, but they actually refer to two different approaches to managing pest problems.

    Pest control is a proactive approach to managing pests that focuses on preventing infestations before they occur. This may involve regular inspections, identifying and sealing entry points, eliminating food and water sources, and using repellents or traps to prevent pests from entering a structure. Pest control is designed to be a long-term solution for managing pests, rather than a one-time fix. 

    Extermination, on the other hand, is a reactive approach to managing pests that focuses on eliminating an existing infestation. This may involve using chemical treatments, traps, or other methods to kill or remove pests from a structure. Extermination is typically a short-term solution for managing pests, as it does not address the underlying causes of the infestation. Without follow-up pest control measures, there is a risk that the infestation will return.

  • What pests are covered under a standard residential pest control service?

    Ants, spiders, silverfish, earwigs, beetles, stink bugs, crickets, centipedes/millipedes plus a few more. We also treat roaches, fleas, bedbugs, termite, rodents and more but a few of those may require a free inspection.

  • The pest control technician told me that for my own safety, I should leave the house during the treatment. Is that necessary?

    To ensure that the treatment is being done properly, the homeowner should observe the treatment process. Unless the homeowner is chemically sensitive, there should not be any adverse health problems associated with a treatment done correctly. Ask questions of the pest control technicians. Keep track of how long it takes them to do the job.

  • If there are termites found at my home does that mean I will have to Fumigate?

    No. The first step is an inspection and only after that inspection can your Kilter Representative give you options for control. Some termites cannot be controlled by fumigation.
