  • I would not take the risk.  You have a valuable investment that could get eaten.  You know they are in the area, you know they eat houses, you know that your house is at risk.  You know what you need to do………

  • We put vinyl planks throughout an IP.  Used in all areas except bedrooms (carpet) and bathroom (tiles).

    Cheaper purchase price
    Cheaper to install – was able to DIY
