New Front Door

As the contractor was preparing to install the new door he said he noticed what might be termites.
My daughter got on the phone immediately and called Orkin. Orkin came rather quickly to discover they were only little black ants. (Thank goodness!) They treated us for the ants, but now we are going to have them come back and give us a treatment for termites.

Here is the new door all installed. Now all it needs is some paint!

Did you make sure that all the termites were removed before installing the new door? If there were termites left, it would definitely damage the new door and would take another installation process and budget just to repair the damage. So if you want to save money, make sure that the first step would be faultless -- if you get to have another project like this. Danielle Bailey @ Vinylume Home Improvement
