Termite Warranty

Why are Termite Warranties Vital?

According to the National Pest Management Association, termites alone cause over $5 billion in property damage annually.

Subterranean termites live in colonies underground. They feed on dead trees and plants. In this way, termites play a vital role in the ecosystem. Houses and other structures draw termites when wooden portions of the structure connect with the ground. Termites cause more damage to structures than fires and floods combined.

Prevent your home from becoming a tasty termite treat by following a few simple steps. Avoid water accumulation around the foundation of your home with proper drainage and clean, functioning gutters. Make sure the crawlspace is well ventilated to avoid humidity. Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house and ensure that no wooden components of the house come in contact with the soil.

Give yourself peace of mind and protect your home and wallet with our Termite Warranty.

Termite infestations can cost a pretty penny, the cost to treat the infestation and cost of repair to termite damage can add up to a high cost. With our Warranty, we will provide an annual inspection to ensure your home is safe. If an infestation does occur, we will do the required treatment at no extra cost to you. Our warranty also covers the cost to repair any damage the termites have caused.

Termites

Termites are truly capable of destroying your home!

Crawlspaces or basements

Damp. Dark. Undisturbed. Crawlspaces and basements can provide the perfect climate for a termite colony to thrive. Because these areas are not often visited problems can occur without the homeowner being aware.

Garages and sheds

Garages and sheds provide easy access and multitudes of hiding spaces for all types of pests. Most garages and sheds are not temperature controlled and are vulnerable to the damp conditions that termites love. Sheds that are not placed on a concrete slab are also likely to have wood to soil contact which will draw termites.

Exterior

Wooden decks draw termites when the wooden posts connect directly to the soil. Many homeowners use mulch in flower beds surrounding their homes. This may look nice but also draws termites to your home. Cedar mulch, recycled rubber and stones are safer options for your flower beds and gardens.

A termite inspection is a process of visually inspecting the interior and exterior of the home and accessible spaces including basements, attics, and crawl spaces.

Inspections should be done regularly to catch an infestation early before much damage is done. Termite inspections are required when selling or refinancing your home.
