The cost of repairs should fall where it should - on the shoulders of the home inspection company, pest control company, or their insurers.

What Are the Signs of Termite Damage?

It's not always easy to spot the signs of termite damage, especially if you're an average person without much knowledge of the termite species. Plus, termites often wreak havoc in unseen areas like drywall, siding, and the framing of your house, so seeing damage isn't always easy. Despite those challenges, there are some common signs and areas for you to consider.

Some common signs of termite damage include:

  • Termite Swarms in Your Home
  • Discarded Termite Wings in Crawlspaces, Attics, or Other Areas
  • Small Holes or Pin Pricks in Walls
  • Mud Tunnels Running Along the Outer Walls of Your House
  • Dirt Falling Out of Cracks, Power Outlets, or Holes in Walls
  • Warped Doors and Windows

Some of the most common areas where termites do damage include:

  • In and Around Chimneys
  • Around the Bases of Outside Walls
  • In the Floors or Walls of Your Attic
  • In Your Crawlspace
  • Laundry, Bath, and Utility Rooms
  • The Floors and Sinks of Your Kitchen or Bathroom
  • Hollowed Out Wooden Areas Around Your Home

What Should I Do if I Find Termite Damage?

If you find termite damage in your home, it's best not to try and fix it yourself. Why? First, repairing damage from termites is a complicated, painstaking endeavor that requires a skilled, tedious approach. Spotting termite damage and knowing how to fix it requires a deep knowledge of how termites behave and live to get rid of them. Second, and perhaps most importantly, taking a DIY approach to termite damage may ruin your termite lawsuit.

That's true even if you have the skills and experience to do so. You might inadvertently destroy important evidence that is key to your case, which may ruin your chances of compensation for damages and poor work. Instead of trying to repair damage on your own, get a second opinion from a trusted inspector. Once your concerns are verified, it's time to call CDH Law Firm. Our experienced termite damage attorneys will dig into your case and discover if you're one of the thousands of people with grounds for filing a termite lawsuit.

Who Is at Fault for Termite Damage?

We get this question often at CDH Law Firm, though the answer is sometimes unclear. What we do know is that if you're looking for the max amount of compensation, we'll need to discover who was at fault. In some cases, it's easy to determine fault. For example, if you're a new homeowner, and a termite inspector or seller didn't inform you of an infestation, you may have grounds to sue.

However, things get more complex if you rent a home or bought a residence many years ago and have been using a pest control company for termite infestation. You could have grounds for a case against the pest control company, your landlord, or a different third party, depending on the circumstances of your case. That's why working with a termite attorney in Charleston, SC is so important - so they can investigate the details and damages associated with your infestation and determine who is accountable.

10 Common Excuses for Avoiding Termite Damage Liability

If you have trusted your home with a pest control company and encounter a termite issue, you might not get the help you expect, even if your claim is legitimate. With years of experience fighting big pest control companies and their insurers, we've heard just about every excuse in the book. If you're dealing with a termite problem, be wary if you hear any of the following excuses.

  • 01.The contract you signed releases our company of any liability.
  • 02.We can't help unless you sign a brand-new contract.
  • 03.There's moisture around the damaged areas of your home. We aren't responsible.
  • 04.We're under no obligation to discover hidden termite damage.
  • 05.We won't review your bond unless your property is re-treated.
  • 06.We don't have to pay because you have a re-treat-only contract.
  • 07.You need to pay for re-treatment because our chemicals or pesticides have worn off.
  • 08.You dug up our chemical barrier. Your infestation is not our fault.
  • 09.Our insurance company won't pay you. If you have a complaint, take it up with them.
  • 10.We'll cover the cost of fixing damage, but we won't open walls to see if more damage is present.

However, things get more complex if you rent a home or bought a residence many years ago and have been using a pest control company for termite infestation. You could have grounds for a case against the pest control company, your landlord, or a different third party, depending on the circumstances of your case. That's why working with a termite attorney in Charleston, SC is so important - so they can investigate the details and damages associated with your infestation and determine who is accountable.

Negligence

Can I Sue a Home Inspector for Negligence?

If your home inspector did not uphold their duties and obligations to you as the home buyer, you could most certainly sue a home inspector.

Unless your termite infestation was new when your home was inspected, it would be hard for a home inspector to miss it. If you just bought a house and you have discovered damage or signs of a termite infestation, contact CHSA Law today. Our team of termite damage attorneys may be able to prove that your inspector failed at spotting and reporting termite issues in your new home.

However, proving negligence is easier said than done without a lawyer by your side. Termite inspectors aren't always expected to find every bit of termite damage, and they're often not the final say in whether your home is damage-free. That's why, with CDH Law Firm as your advocate, we'll ask the hard-hitting questions needed to discover if your inspector missed termite damage for legitimate reasons or if they were careless and negligent. We'll help facilitate a second inspection if needed and will work tirelessly to earn you the compensation you deserve.

Breach

Can I Sue a Home Inspector for Breach of Contract?

You should know that even if your home inspector is legally negligent for missing termite damage or infestations, their liability will often be limited due to the language in their contract.

If your lawsuit doesn't have the proper foundation to prove negligence, your termite damage lawyer in Charleston, SC may be able to win compensation via breach of contract. In many circumstances, this is the best route to take if it's easier to prove that an inspector violated a contract. For example, suppose the home inspection contract you signed called for a whole-home inspection, and the inspector failed to survey your crawlspace or attic. In that case, you may have a viable claim in court.

At CDH Law Firm, we understand that every termite damage case situation is different. As such, we approach every case with a nuanced, multi-faceted strategy crafted with your best interests in mind.

Cobb, Dill, & Hammett Is Here When You Need Us Most

When a termite prevention company or home inspector is negligent and causes damage to your home, it's time to act fast. You need a trustworthy termite attorney in cityname, state by your side to take the proper steps toward getting compensation.

When you depend on CHSA Law, LLC, you'll receive personalized attention and proactive representation. That's because we make an intentional decision to limit our law firm's overall caseload. This allows us to better focus on our individual clients, many of whom remain with us for generations.

We value compassion and integrity, and our practice reflects those values. If you're ready to take a stand, call our office today. Our termite damage lawyers will help create a better future for you, your family, or your business.

First Look at the Meaty Interiors at Da Toscano Porchetta Shop in Charleston

TheThe team behind Italian favorite Le Farfalle (15 Beaufain Street, Charleston) is almost ready to open their second Lowcountry project Da Toscano Porchetta Shop (109 President Street). Chef Michael Toscano, partner Caitlin Toscano, and managing partner Joe Hochberg have transformed the former Gnome Cafe space...

TheThe team behind Italian favorite Le Farfalle (15 Beaufain Street, Charleston) is almost ready to open their second Lowcountry project Da Toscano Porchetta Shop (109 President Street). Chef Michael Toscano, partner Caitlin Toscano, and managing partner Joe Hochberg have transformed the former Gnome Cafe space into an old-world sandwich shop.

After traveling through Florence, Italy, Michael says he would think back to the porchetta and bollito sandwiches he found in small shops and street carts, and he wanted to create his own. In 2022, he made focaccia sandwiches out of the Le Farfalle kitchen and sold them once a week during lunch hours. He didn’t think his porchetta creations would be anything more than a pop-up, until he and Caitlin saw that the President Street restaurant space was available.

Now, the team is ready to open Da Toscano Porchetta Shop as early as next week. The space is totally different from its previous life as a vegan cafe. The floors are covered in well-worn tiles, a large marble counter frames the bar, meats rotate on several spits behind the dark wood counter, and there’s plenty of Sinatra on the soundtrack. “It should make you feel like you’re in Florence walking off the streets into a cafe,” says Michael.

The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and a happy hour. Housemade focaccia is at the core of the menu — every sandwich is served on the Italian bread. For breakfast, there’s porchetta with a sunny-side-up egg or smoked salmon with whipped ricotta and everything bagel spices. At lunch, there’s more porchetta, but there’s also prime rib, rotisserie chicken with Parmigiano vinaigrette, and roasted potatoes cooked with the drippings from the beef and pork. The kitchen sources all the pork from local pig farmer Tank Jackson with Holy City Hogs.

There are no seats at Da Toscano Porchetta Shop. Customers walk in, order at the bar, and take their sandwiches (or salads) to one of the counter spaces in the cafe. “There’s a great energy you get by everybody hanging around and standing close to one another,” says Michael, “ It’s fun, and it’s also how it is in Italy. It creates a great environment.”

Once the doors are unlocked, Da Toscano Porchetta Shop will open Monday through Friday (with plans to open on the weekends in 2024), from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Take a tour of the space and the menus here.

Christmas Spirits: Charleston bars go all out on the holiday cheer, decor

We don’t know about you, but this holiday season, we are exclusively bellying up to holiday bars. We want it all — the lights, the trees, the ornaments the size of our heads — and based on the packed crowds we’ve seen around town this month, you want it too. The folks at Hotel Emeline, which is currently home to a festive winter courtyard, and at The Ryder, home of Little Pine (the holiday version of its bar and restaurant, Little Palm), have extended the decked-out dates, with both holiday iterations running through ...

We don’t know about you, but this holiday season, we are exclusively bellying up to holiday bars. We want it all — the lights, the trees, the ornaments the size of our heads — and based on the packed crowds we’ve seen around town this month, you want it too. The folks at Hotel Emeline, which is currently home to a festive winter courtyard, and at The Ryder, home of Little Pine (the holiday version of its bar and restaurant, Little Palm), have extended the decked-out dates, with both holiday iterations running through mid-January. What is it about festive holiday bars that inspires such cheer? In 2019, Eater Atlanta editor Beth McKibben theorized people just want to escape, if only for a spiked eggnog or two. “I do think these bars spark nostalgia in people and give them a little bit of comfort,” she wrote. So, whether you’re seeking comfort, cheer or just a really good Irish coffee, we’ve got a few holiday bar suggestions for you.

Hotel Emeline’s courtyard features a tree-lined yurt village this season. General manager of food and beverage at Emeline, Adam Jimenez, said: “From our festive decorations to The Den’s cheeky holiday cocktails to the winter courtyard’s tree-lined yurts — these activations were designed to evoke the holiday spirit and encourage conviviality. Our Winter Courtyard was inspired by our desire to transform the space into an entirely new holiday destination for our guests to discover.” You and your pals can rent a yurt through Resy. The “festive fondue experience” is $50 per guest and comes with guaranteed cozy vibes. If you’d rather skip the yurt experience, feel free to sit by the outdoor fire and order shareable plates and festive drinks from the Frannie & The Fox menu. Don’t sleep on “today’s mozzarella,” which is, in fact, made in-house daily.

Head to The Ryder hotel’s Little Palm bar and restaurant for its holiday iteration, Little Pine, which hopes to recreate an “authentic apres ski experience without leaving Charleston.” Guests can rent out gondolas, hang by the pool or just belly up to the bar for seasonal sips. Gondola reservations, which can be made at Resy.com or through the resy app, are available for 90-minute time slots for up to four guests.

Prohibition recreates itself as Christmas bar Sippin’ Santa this season, decked out in self-proclaimed “over-the-top Christmas” decor. The “tropical companion” to Handcraft Kitchen & Bar’s Miracle Bar, Sippin’ Santa is also an international pop-up franchise. Find the full drink menu online. All the festive cocktails are served in special mugs and glassware — here’s lookin’ at you surfin’ Santa — and drinks include tiki classics as well as new cocktails crafted just for this year.

Surround yourself with more ornaments than Santa has at the North Pole at the festively outfitted Blind Tiger bar. Sip on a seasonal cocktail — here’s lookin’ at you gingerbread espresso martini — and stay a while. Snap a few pics. Your Instagram feed will thank you.

If you prefer sipping your holiday drinks exclusively indoors, just pop over to The Den, located in Hotel Emeline’s restaurant, Frannie & The Fox. The martini bar has a special holiday menu, of course, but if you want to stick to its traditional offerings, we don’t blame you. Nothing says celebration like full martini service and a side of caviar, no? If you do choose a drink from bar manager Amanda Phelps’ ’90s-inspired holiday list, might we suggest the Sex on the Slopes, made with Absolut, cardamom and ginger-infused giffard peach, chambord, cranberry, orange juice and lime.

North Charleston restaurant Jackrabbit Filly is like if someone said, “Make Chinese-American comfort food, but make it chef-y.” Owners Shuai and Corrie Wang opened the restaurant after years of running acclaimed food truck Short Grain. The menu has touches of Chinese and Japanese. There’s Sichuan dry pot, Mama Wang’s fried rice with lap cheong, and a highly-sought-after chirashi bowl. The restaurant recently added a dim sum brunch.

Looking for a dim sum dinner or lunch in the Lowcountry? Hit up Dragon Palace on Daniel Island for pork buns, shu mai, dumplings, and sesame balls. The interiors are retro fancy with ornate wood carvings and plenty of red. Dragon Palace also offers classics like chow mein, cashew chicken, and egg drop soup.

King BBQ offers Chinese barbecue with a Carolinas influence. The menu centers on smoked meats — five-spice duck, char siu ribs, ginger scallion kielbasa, and rotisserie chicken — and all the ways to serve those proteins — on a sandwich, rice, or noodles. Don’t miss the crispy shrimp toast sliders.

Downtown restaurant Beautiful South serves American-style takeout Chinese classics like General Tso’s chicken and Mongolian beef, but there’s also Cantonese roasted meats and Hainanese chicken. Try one of the inventive cocktails, such as the Love Your Enemies, which is a tequila and mezcal milk punch with a hint of oolong tea.

Eastside Chinese spot Hot Mustard may not be winning any culinary awards any time soon, but the restaurant’s takeout and delivery game is on point. Compared to other Americanized Chinese restaurants, Hot Mustard seems the most generous with the portions and the meat-to-noodle ratio. The pork lo mein or the sweet and sour chicken are reliable choices. This is eat-out-of-the-box-type of Chinese food — best served while sitting on the couch, watching Netflix, and in your pajamas.

Downtown restaurant Xiao Bao Biscuit (XBB) has been around since 2012. The kitchen draws from different regions across Asia and delivers on some solid Chinese choices. The mapo tofu is some of the best in town, and the dumplings always satisfy. XBB is usually packed with lively customers looking for Asian comfort foods. Starting during the pandemic, the restaurant began offering takeout.

If you haven’t heard of Old Li’s Restaurant on Savannah Highway in West Ashley, it might be because fans of the Chinese establishment would rather keep it a well-guarded secret. The can’t -miss menu item is the crispy Peking duck, but the oyster pancakes, dumplings, and squirrel fish are worth ordering as well. Old Li’s is BYOB, so plan accordingly.

James Island Sichuan restaurant Kwei Fei has enough peppercorns and punk-rock sensibility to keep any dinner interesting. Owners David Schuttenberg and Tina Heath-Schuttenberg moved from New York to Charleston for another restaurant project, but when that didn’t pan out, the culinary community lucked out when they decided to bring Sichuan flavors to town.

The restaurant usually full of locals enjoying lamb dumplings, spicy noodles, and tingly beef to the soundtrack of loud rock and funk music.

• Charlotte native AJ Smith went off for a career-high 34 points in the win over A&T, and he leads The Citadel in scoring (16.5).

• Veteran guard Elijah Morgan scored 15 points or more in five of the first seven games, and he’s second on the team at 11.3 ppg.

• Senior forward Quentin Millora-Brown has posted three straight double-doubles, and he leads the Bulldogs in rebounding (9.2), while scoring 8.7 ppg.

• Former Presbyterian forward Winston Hill grabbed a career-best 17 boards in the A&T victory, and he’s averaging 9.6 ppg.

College of Charleston Cougars Preview

Charleston moved to 5-4 after defeating Rhode Island at home, 85-70. The Cougars used a strong second half to pull away from the Rams, and they’ll look to double down here at home. Charleston is scoring 74.6 points per game, on 41.8% shooting, while allowing 77.2 ppg.

Charleston Team Notes

• Charleston prefers to take things slow, averaging 69.7 possessions per game (265th), and they’ve struggled to connect from deep, hitting just 30.1% of their three-point shots (291st).

• Fort Mill native Ben Burnham poured in a season-high 23 points in the win over Rhode Island, and he leads Charleston in scoring (12.9).

• Junior guard Reyne Smith led the way with 24 points in the in-state victory over Coastal Carolina, and he’s second in the team at 11.2 ppg.

• Third-year forward Ante Brzovic double-doubled in that same contest, and he leads CoC in rebounding (5.9), while scoring 10.6 ppg.

The Citadel vs Charleston Trends

CIT is 5-3 against the spread, with a 3-5 O/U record

COFC is 3-6 ATS, with a 4-5 over/under record.

The Citadel vs Charleston Prediction

This inner-city matchup should churn out some good action, and I like the visitors sticking around throughout this one. The Citadel was half advantages on the offensive end, they just have to prevent letting this one get out of hand on the road. This isn’t the same 30-win Charleston team from last Winter, so while they still may manage to avoid defeat here, the Bulldogs have a chance to capitalize on the generous margin. Spot The Citadel the points for this battle of Charleston achools.
