We closed on our new house 2 weeks ago. We of course had all the inspections including termite. We moved into the house and since the air was NOT working we had to open windows. In the sunroom we notice that 5 of the windows had holes in corners. So we had another termite guy come and look who said that it was termite damage and that they were active. So we thought we would have a 2nd opinion by a more reputable company who said yes it was damage but there was no active termites. Well since all damage was done before we moved in and inspector did not catch we have been talking to a lawyer (My husband is also a lawyer). So we were told to have a contractor come in and give us an estimate of how much it was going to cost to fix damages. Tonight we were taking off wainscoting and discovered that the drywall had tracks of where the Termites had been. When we got to the corner and took off the paneling about 150 termites feel out of the wall.
Now we don't know what to do. We were told there was no signs of termites in the rest of the house but do we get it treated? Would love to know your advice.
