You may be aware that having an annual termite inspection on your property is not just a smart idea, it’s a requirement for the validity of your termite warranty.
But did you also know that if you don’t have a termite inspection carried out every 12 months there is every chance you could also be voiding your termite barrier warranty?
I have been in the termite business for a very long time and have seen some real horror stories, it breaks my heart when I see the cost to some home owners.
There are so many ways termites can enter your home and start feeding it that you are probably not even aware of.
Damage from termites can often go undetected as they build their tunnels, eating their way through your home for months before you even notice.
The foundational harm termites do in the early stages isn’t actually visible
it’s not until the damage has really taken hold that you know you have a termite problem.
Think about what this means for you and your family.
Can you really afford the risk of not knowing whether the structure of your greatest asset is being impacted by termite activity you are not even aware of?
A termite infestation can compromise the integrity of a house to such a degree that it is unsafe to live in, often until very expensive repairs are made.
If you do believe you have termites or have seen signs of termite activity, do not use pesticide sprays as this will only serve to drive the termites deeper into the structure and foundation of the building in order to avoid detection.
Having yearly termite inspections carried out can save you thousands of dollars simply because catching out termite activity as early as possible is key to retaining the integrity of the structure of the building.
Once any part of that structure has been destroyed or damaged, it becomes a very expensive repair job and can be a very hard lesson.
The likelihood of termites invading the structure of your building – domestic or commercial – is very high and increasing.
There are several reasons for this:
- A change in the type of chemicals allowable for treatment
- Increased humidity in the atmosphere
- Materials used for construction
- Building design
You may think you are saving yourself unnecessary costs by putting off having your home or commercial premises inspected for termite activity, but let me tell you my friend, this is truly a false economy.
The fact is termites cause more damage to buildings in Australia than fire, floods and storms, they can pass through a 2mm crack or even an expansion joint.

- We check for any signs of termite activity
