Sadly, there is no coverage for termites in my insurance policy. Ugh – I am looking at such huge expenditures right now that it is hard to fathom. [Fathom is such a great word isn’t it?] I had Orkin come on over to let me know what needed to be done to rid my house of the dreaded vermin. Happily, for only $3200, I too can be pest free [can you hear the sarcasm? It is such a chore to actually get it to come across in print!] But, I’ve had good experiences with Orkin in the past, they were professional and they were available within 2 days. That work was done on Friday and hopefully, the advancing deterioration of my home has been halted. It can’t be reversed but right now, I’ll settle for halted! Now, I can start looking for a contractor to replace the floor in the living room and the bathroom. The bathroom will probably need a lot more than just a floor but one step at a time…….
