Termites seem to be naturaly attracted to columns.This column was cheated over the footer when constructed.Shortcuts like this are not uncommom in our business.We can repair this problem.


In most cases, there is a "cold" joint where the home's foundation intersects with exterior concrete that was poured(pooldecks,driveways ect.),regardless if the stucco is behind it or not.Termites only need 1/64th of an inch to infiltrate,and often do.We can customize this area to achieve the desired effect and make it look "intentional" and professional.It's a another alternative to "downdrilling thru the concrete.
