When we bought our house we were advised to be sure and get a termite contract prior to our one year anniversary. We were told that this area of Loudoun County was known for termites and that we should take this additional measure to protect our investment. I'd appreciate any comments/insights on whether it really is necessary to get such a contract and whether anyone has had any problems with termites. Lastly, for those who endorse getting a termite contract, can they recommend a good company? Thanks!
