According to a 2010 study from GreenSource, approximately 90 percent of homes throughout the United States are built with wood.
The data also revealed that since 1940, the number of housing units in the US -- including apartment dwellings -- have more than tripled, moving from less than 37.5 million to more than 128 million today.
Furthermore, a contemporary, 2,000-square-foot, wood-framed, single-family house is estimated to use around 16,000 board feet of framing and about 11,000 square feet of other wood materials.
That’s a lot of wood -- and it carries with it a lot of potential for something to go wrong.
If something does go wrong with your home or building, it can threaten finances, comfort -- even your very existence.
Perhaps the most likely issue a wood-based home or building will face can be attributed to termite infestation. Termites vary with how they travel, how they are detected, and how they can be stopped.
Many homeowners don’t realize this, and can end up creating more problems for themselves with faulty diagnoses and do-it-yourself treatment routines that offer no guarantee from future infestation.
