Can Dampwood Termites Damage The Roof And Support Structures Of Your Leaky Enclosed Back Porch?
If your enclosed back porch has a major water leak in the roof that penetrated its wooden frame and support beams, check the roof's wooden structures for termites. One particular termite species called dampwood live and breed in wet wood. The termites generally invade the Pacific Coast but can also live in some areas of the Southwest. If you live in these locations, your porch's damaged roof and support structures may be the perfect home for dampwood termites.
