Termite Barriers & Termite Management Sunshine Coast

Termites are a real concern for a huge number of Australian homeowners. They can infiltrate your home from the ground up destroying crucial structures and causing billions of dollars of damage across Australia each year. So, if you’re thinking twice about getting a termite treatment or barrier, here are a few reasons you should seriously consider booking one today.

Termites move quickly

A large colony of termites (around three million or so) can eat through around 30cm of a 2×4 board in around 48 hours. Though termite damage can often be confined to isolated areas of the home like window frames or structural posts this can result in a hefty bill for repairs. Plus, the potential of further damage can often lead to sleepless nights for the homeowner.

Most insurance companies won’t cover termite damage

That’s right! Because they see damage caused by insects (including termites), vermin or rodents as preventable, many insurance companies won’t cover it. It’s frustrating, but it makes it all the more important to ensure your home is termite-free by taking your own preventative actions like fixing leaking pipes and water damage quickly (termites love moisture) but the most effective way to know your home is termite-free is through us here at ‘All Love’.

The cost of a barrier outweighs the cost of an infestation

It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to termites. Houses with damage have reported repair fees in the thousands depending on the size and severity of the infestation. It’s also important to note that there is a potential for a lowered sale price if you ever decide to sell, given a history of termite damage

If your home has active termites, you will likely need to cover the cost of a termite treatment, plus building repairs at which point most homeowners without protection then choose to get a termite barrier installed.

It’s easy then to see why taking preventive measures against termites is a great idea for homeowners.
