Timber Pest Inspectors and technicians doing termite inspections and treatments should know the correct terms for the parts of the wall structure. This knowledge helps add to your professionalism.
Parts of the framing are shown in the diagram below:
To ensure professionalism in your reporting it is best to report termite damage as "Visual termite damage was found in the lintel above the lounge room main window frame and window sill trimmer." rather than "Termite damage found in lounge room". The report should then advise further non-visual damage may exist and that an invasive inspection is strongly recommended.
