If termites are causing damage to your property, don't let giant pest control chains or home inspection franchises take advantage of you. 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 Landrum, 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 Landrum, 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 Landrum, 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.

LANDRUM, S.C. —

An Upstate chef is now a two-time Food Network competitor.

Sarah McClure, chef and co-owner of Southside Smokehouse in Landrum, recently competed on the popular competition show "Guy’s Grocery Games" for the second time.

In 2020, McClure’s first episode aired. She came in second place with a shrimp and grits dish.

The latest episode, which aired last week, was a "redemption" episode and featured other chefs who didn’t take home the title the first time around.

McClure says even though she didn’t end up in the final two this time, she is always proud to represent the Upstate.

“I’m obviously super proud to represent Landrum and South Carolina and just the South in general. Southern cooking is really having a moment right now, but I think a lot of times it’s still very pigeon-holed,” she said. “People outside of the South tend to think it’s gotta be a certain way– it’s gotta be unhealthy. It’s gotta be fried. It’s gotta be greasy or, you know, they have these very old school interpretations of southern food. So, showing people that even someone who is not classically trained, someone who is from a small family restaurant, someone who is from a small town, can compete on a national stage with people from all over the country.”

McClure says she is not the first chef from Landrum to appear on the show.

She says Chef Shawne Shell, who has worked at the Hare & Hound in Landrum, competed on the show several years ago, as well.

“I think it’s pretty cool that a really small town like Landrum that you may not really think of has two people that have been on a Food Network show,” she said.

McClure says since appearing on the show, she has received several frequently asked questions from fans and foodies alike.

“The biggest thing that people always ask me is, they’re like, ‘Is it really that much of a surprise? Did you really not know what you were going to get beforehand? Is it really only 30 minutes?’ And the answer to that is 100% yes. It is—really, really, truly,” she said. “And like, when you see them messing with the time clock–like in our episode, they were distracting us and counting down before we actually started running through the store- that is for real. That really took away like two minutes of our shopping time.”

In fact, in the latest episode, McClure was so pressed for time, she didn’t even get a chance to taste her dish. But, she says she was so excited to cook with the unique ingredients that she special-ordered them when she arrived back in South Carolina and prepared the same dish right here in the Upstate.

“We actually have this dish on the menu at the smokehouse right now. You can try the dish that I cooked on Food Network,” she said. “And I got it on [the menu] for the first time last night. A couple of my bar regulars said it was fabulous, so hopefully, if you guys come and check it out, you’ll agree.”

According to Southside Smokehouse’s Facebook page, the dish is “petite lamb chops, fiddlehead ferns shoots, morel mushrooms and Merguez sausage over ricotta whipped sweet potato and a ricotta mint cream sauce.”

If you missed McClure’s first episode of "Guy’s Grocery Games," you can watch it online.

McClure says the most recent episode is not posted online yet, but you can watch it again on the Food Network on Wednesday, June 28, at 8 p.m. ET and Thursday, June 29, at 3 a.m. ET.

Landrum's Biazzo Deli offers New York-style deli, tribute to owner's Italian heritage

Italian food and hospitality come naturally to Brian Frascino, a gift from his Sicilian grandmother and his Italian American upbringing in New York.

His new Landrum deli is a tribute to this heritage, incorporating his grandmother's maiden name of Biazzo as well as traditional and family recipes to offer customers an authentic Italian delicatessen experience.

Biazzo Deli opened last October in the former Mocha’s Mug location on Rutherford Street. Frascino said the storefront was the next evolution of his business. He previously ran Fam Pizza, a Greenville-based pizza food truck.

“We were in here and talking to Denis (Friederich, co-owner of Mocha’s Mug), and I was going to approach him because the place was so large, just to see if he ever wanted to sublet or something like that and then found out he was leaving to his new location," Frascino said of coming to Landrum. "It just kind of organically happened, it wasn't planned or anything. I was hoping to look in this area anyway, and it just kind of worked out.”

Biazzo Deli offers a variety of meats and salads that customers can purchase to take home and a variety of sandwiches that can be eaten in the restaurant or taken to go. Most sandwiches range between $11-13.

An authentic New York-style Italian delicatessen in Spartanburg County

Italian imports — and made-in-house lasagna and meatballs — are the standard at Biazzo Deli.

"We have a full menu of sandwiches, subs, and flat press paninis with Italian meats we've imported or very high-end domestic meats. So it's just like top-of-the-line, really good cold cuts from Italy," Frascino said. "We have a take-and-bake freezer (and) we do lasagnas and frozen meatballs that people can come in and grab on the go, and then we also do fresh stuff in the deli case like salads."

Olives, artichoke hearts, cheeses, and meats like prosciutto, coppa, salami, and pancetta are sold by the pound from their deli case. His Grandmother Biazzo's meatballs are sold fresh or frozen alongside his mother's family's red sauce. Nearby shelves are filled with dry goods imported from Italy.

“There's a little education probably that we're working on, with some of the meats and stuff like that. We’re trying to let everybody taste stuff when they come in if they aren't familiar with the coppa, or a certain type of prosciutto, or some of our cheeses. We definitely interact with customers a lot,” Frascino said.

Some of Biazzo's most popular items include the Nonno, an 8-inch hero with two types of prosciutto, coppa, salami, mortadella, provolone, roasted peppers and arugula, and the Amore panini filled with prosciutto, coppa, roasted peppers, fresh basil, and mozzarella topped with a balsamic glaze.

Vegetarian options include their Caprese sub, fried eggplant caprese salad and their Bella Burger, which sandwiches heirloom tomatoes, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, arugula, and fontina between two roasted portabella mushroom caps.

When and where to visit Biazzo Deli

Biazzo Deli is located at 212 E. Rutherford St. in Landrum. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays and from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. Saturdays.

Landrum football hires Brent Bridges as next Cardinals football coach

Landrum has hired Broome offensive coordinator and former Chesnee coach Brent Bridges as its next football coach. Bridges, a former Broome quarterback, has spent the past 11 seasons as an assistant at his alma mater, most recently serving as its lead offensive play-caller under coach Lynn Fleming.“I am excited to welcome coach Bridges to the Landrum High School family,” said Landrum principal Kegan Flynn. “He has a track record of success and experience with other programs, as well as a passion for hel...

Landrum has hired Broome offensive coordinator and former Chesnee coach Brent Bridges as its next football coach. Bridges, a former Broome quarterback, has spent the past 11 seasons as an assistant at his alma mater, most recently serving as its lead offensive play-caller under coach Lynn Fleming.

“I am excited to welcome coach Bridges to the Landrum High School family,” said Landrum principal Kegan Flynn. “He has a track record of success and experience with other programs, as well as a passion for helping student athletes become leaders and learners.”

"I've had opportunities, and I've turned down other head coaching jobs, because it just didn't feel right. Broome was home for me and I was very comfortable there. ... Being honest with you, I felt like Landrum was a great fit for me, and I'm a great fit for Landrum. Through this whole process there's just been something there that felt right about it, and I'm very excited," Bridges said.

At Chesnee, Bridges had a 40-29 record in his six seasons in charge of Eagles football from 2006-11, before stepping down.

In 2022, Bridges led an explosive offense at Broome that racked up 3,976 total yards and 46 touchdowns in 11 games.

His spread system was run-heavy this past season, with first-year starting quarterback Kamajay Brackett-Brannon and freshman running back Jaylen McGill combining to become one of the most athletic backfields in the area as they rushed for 2,012 total yards and 31 rushing touchdowns.

This attack helped Broome reach the playoffs and fight for a Region 3-AAA championship, falling short in the last regular-season game against Chapman.

Though Broome was more run-heavy this season — 343 rushes vs. 196 passes — the Centurions' offense hasn't been afraid to sling it in recent years. In 2021, with now-North Greenville quarterback Dylan Ramirez, the offense threw the ball 366 times.

At Landrum, under former coach Jason Farmer, the Cardinals ran an option-run style offense for the past nine seasons, so a switch to the spread under Bridges will be a massive shift for the Cardinal, but not one he's unfamiliar with.

"I had the same transition when coach (Jet) Turner left Broome, and I took over the offense there. He ran the option-style, wing-T offense, and we just went full blown into what we do," Bridges said. "We're going to be wide open, we're going to be fast paced and we're going to get after it and try to put points on the board."

With the return of star running backs Colton Link and Braden Mashtare − who combined to rush for 2,081 yards and 27 touchdowns − Bridges will have the opportunity to hit the ground running with his new look offense.

Carbon Frames Made in the U.S.: Time Bicycles Announces New Production Facility in South Carolina

Time Bicycles is synonymous with fast and stylish. They’ve also been historically European-made, but soon, that’s changing.

On Thursday the bike brand announced that they recently acquired a 140,000 square-foot factory in Landrum, South Carolina, and will begin manufacturing their carbon fiber bikes there by 2024.

Big Plans for a Little Town

Time’s production will be the largest carbon fiber bicycle manufacturing facility in the U.S., and it will be a big change for such a small town.

More From Bicycling

Landrum, population 2,540, sits just south of the state line, and 30 miles north of Spartanburg, home of BMW’s U.S. manufacturing plant.

According to Bicycle Retailer, Time CEO Tony Karklins said, “We expect this will lead to other projects, and potentially big projects, so we're putting it in an environment where it can grow rapidly.”

South Carolina Department of Commerce reports that renovations will begin as early as April, and the $6.5 million investment will bring 105 jobs to the area. South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster said in a statement, “It's always exciting when a renowned company such as Time Bicycles decides to invest in our state.”

Jon Castro, a local member of the Landrum cycling community, told Bicycling that Time made a wise choice. “I live about a mile from [where the Time factory will be]. We’re in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, so excellent bike riding here—road, gravel, and mountain biking.” Castro also told us that there’s a sophisticated manufacturing labor force in the area, and that Time would fit right in.

Founded on Technology

Time Bicycles was born in 1987, and they’ve always been dedicated to precision and peak technology. Their carbon fiber technology utilizes two processes, Braided Carbon Structure and Resin Transfer Molding. The technology allows for both strong and light frames. It’s rare to find such technology used in a bike brand—it’s found more often in aerospace and elite motorsport industries.

Time chose the South Carolina location because of its reputation as a technology driven area. Bicycle Retailer reports, Time will work with Krauss Maffei—a BMW machinery and tech vendor—and S.C. Fraunhofer.

“The three of us are entering into some pretty interesting collaborations on how to advance and further introduce resin transfer molding into the bike industry,” Karklins told Bicycling. “There is so much aerospace and automotive high-tech manufacturing going on in that state that it's amazing.”

“We chose upstate South Carolina because of the technology that already exists there,” Karklins continued. “Clemson University's research in resin transfer molding, and aerospace technology in the same area. There's an infrastructure in place for exactly what Time Bicycles does in Europe.” Karklins added, “Besides also being a wonderful cycling culture, and a very good business economy.”
