Termite Framing Damage

This termite framing damage was part a double sill underneath an aluminum window. As you can see from the outside of the 2 x 4 there is very little noticeable damage in this window sill it probably would've lasted another 20 or 30 years if left in place.

The termite framing damage came out a 40 year old house that was just tented in order to be sold.

As you can see by the size of the holes or termite tunnels these little guys can do some damage to a wood framed building. The holes run all the way through the 2 x 4 windowsill and of course led into other framing members of the House.

Aluminum windows seemed to leak water at their corners and the moisture attracts termites and of course leads to framing damage that eventually will need to be replaced.
