I have a wall on my house that has a Permanent Wood Foundation (exterior plywood rated for below grade use). About 4 feet of it is below grade. The house was built about 15 years ago, and I've had no problems. It was properly put in with French drains. The wood was covered with black plastic and then tarred. It was inspected and met county code. The problem I am having is that I cannot get a termite warranty on it without digging the dirt completely away from the wall and then putting in a poured wall 2 feet from my house--UGH! Got an estimate for over $11,000. I know of another house with a wood foundation that is having leakage/shifting problems. I live in GA where we do have a lot of rain and humidity. One of the termite companies told me that the plywood will wick up moisture from the slab, and that it will eventually rot and/or be attacked by termites. Any advice for me out there? Please help me save $11,000!
