Spray Foam Insulation Can Help Hungry Termites Reach Wood
August 30, 2013
Termites are ecologically beneficial outdoors by aerating and providing nutrients to the soil. However, they can be disastrous to the structural integrity of homes and buildings. Termites feed primarily on wood. But they can also gnaw on other materials like plaster and metal siding. In great numbers, they can make homes unlivable. Believe it or not, safety officers dissuade people from living in termite-infested houses because it weakens its integrity. It makes the foundations unreliable from holding off a storm.
Fight Termite Infestation & Save On Energy Costs In Greensboro, NC & Beyond
In recent years, spray foam has become a popular choice of insulation because of its ability to save energy and lower utility bills. However, the dense, sponge-like environment it creates can actually make it easy for termites to get to the wood holding up your home. Termites appear to like the material, so they easily move through it and nest in it — ultimately leading to a higher potential for structural damage from termites.
