Charlotte Home Inspector Finds Termites Under the Deck

October 9th, 2011 · No Comments


Charlotte home inspector Preston Sandlin was inspecting a home in Weddington NC when he found active termites in a stump underneath the rear deck.  The space under the deck is considered part of the crawl space.  If you have a deck be sure to keep it free of wood and debris including firewood.  Also if you add a deck be sure to remove trees and stumps like the one you see in this picture.  Unfortuanately this home owner did not rmove this stump out from under the deck and now they will be faced with a rather expensive termite treatmeant  after the home inspection.
