“You see the wood has been damaged and destroyed or just eaten away. You see it’s just a big mess,” said Lewis.

He asserts that despite paying Terminix $250 annually for ten years, his parents’ church still suffered termite damage from the joist to the ceiling.

“I reached out to seven on your side because we started this claim over a year ago,” he said “We’ve been fighting, and they’ve been dragging their feet.”
