Question DetailsAsked on 7/9/2020

I’m repairing the facia and eves of my house with wood restorer and epoxy putty, then termite treatment. Ok?

I plan to treat termites again but am doing some needed repairs from termite /wood rot damage on the eves and facia. I have found a few dry wood termites but no infestations. So far I’ve done half of the house and am caulking all flashing as I go and any potential entry areas. I also plan to paint the house. My questions are: Can I treat the house for termites after I complete my repairs and paint it? Does epoxy wood putty (I’m using Perma-Chink M-Balm wood rot restorer and E-Wood Epoxy wood putty) trap in any unseen termites, or will termite treatment get them any way. Lastly, should I wait to paint the house until after termite treatment, or does it matter? My feeling is that I can do my repairs, and if I see no significant live termite infestation, just get the termite treatment when I’m done. We had the home fumigated for termites 10 years ago, had some serious interior repair done during a remodel in 2017, and now want to repair the outside damage. Thank folks!
