It was a beautiful house painted to the color you choose. Inside it was full of furniture and fixtures, appliances, music center. It was built to have many rooms for you and to others.

Replace all the rotten timber due to termite onslaught. Buy a hard lumber for durability and longer use.

Use chemicals for treatment of the timber so that termites cannot penetrate inside the wood immediately. You can buy this chemicals from agricultural supply.


Every month, check it personally any termite invasion to the structure of the house. See that the gutter has no rotten leaves from trees embedded in its waterways that can cause rust. Clean it to remove all debris.

Hire the services of pest control company to do monthly application of chemicals to the surface most affected by termite invasion.
