Get in the Gutter

Similarly, this can invite a new set of problems like wood rot or insect infestation. Moreover, your gutters and downspouts, if properly taken care of, will divert water away from home and foundation.
Fourth, Spring is a great time to check for signs of termites. Here, you will want to look for termite tubes and wood rot. Therefore, subterranean termites will nest in soil and will move to a wood source close to the ground. Not to mention, these termites will forage in tubes made up of soil, waste and wood chips.
