Protect your foundation from pests and wildlife.

Foundations in Southern Louisiana are at risk of damage from pests and wildlife, as well as termites. It is important to take steps to protect and treat your foundation to prevent costly repairs and maintain the structural integrity of your home.

One way to protect your foundation from pests and wildlife is to maintain a barrier around the perimeter of your home. This includes installing a fence or a line of rocks or gravel around the foundation, which can deter animals from getting too close to the house. Additionally, keeping your yard free of debris and overgrown vegetation can also help to reduce the likelihood of pests and wildlife taking up residence near your foundation.

Another important step in protecting your foundation is to have it treated for termites. Termites are a common problem in the greater New Orleans area, and they can cause significant damage to the structure of your home if left untreated. It’s a good idea to have a professional inspect your home for termites regularly and to treat any infestations as soon as they are detected.

In addition to regular inspections and treatments, there are other steps you can take to protect your foundation from termites. For example, you can remove any wood or cellulose-based materials that are in contact with the soil around your foundation. This includes things like firewood piles, old tree stumps, and even wooden decks and patios. Additionally, make sure that any outdoor plumbing or irrigation systems are properly sealed and free of leaks, as this can attract termites.

Lastly, it’s important to keep an eye out for any signs of pest or wildlife activity around your foundation, such as holes or burrows, and to address them as soon as possible. And also, keep your gutters and downspouts clear of debris, as this can prevent water from pooling around the foundation and attracting pests.

By taking these steps to protect and treat your foundation, you can help to keep your home safe and secure for many years to come.
