Video Length: 7:28
Produced by: Matt Risinger


My company does about 50% of our work doing whole house remodels & 50% doing new construction builds.  Here in Austin, TX I've seen some nasty termite infestations and tons of damage.  But, I must admit that if I only did new construction I might downplay the role of termite-proofing a house.  In this video I'll show you how to avoid nasty chemicals in favor of a more green solution to termite protection.  -Matt Risinger
