Regular inspections will identify these issues that will reduce the damage, saving the homeowner plenty. Not everyone makes an effort to check their roof void, but getting a termite inspection by a reputable company that will inspect the available roof space will reduce the amount of water damage that can occur if found early.

Water and moisture will attract termites so ensure you rectify any drainage or water leaks at the property, including diverting all hot water and air conditioning overflows that are released against exterior walls, to a drain.
