Home owners spend of average $7,000 to repair the damage caused by termites
The fact is; According to the CSIRO 1 in 3 Australian homes have had a termite problem. Look around you. One of the homes either side of you or yours have had or will suffer from a termite attack. If your home is unprotected, it doesn’t become a matter of IF, it becomes a matter of when.
This is not being alarmist, this is stating the facts. With no insurance to cover the damage that termites will do, your first and only line of defence is a qualified, licenced and experienced Termite Technician from Tactic Pest Control.
My home is built from steel or concrete
Some people think in terms of ‘total home destruction’ when it comes to termites. Yes, the external structure may be made of cement, the frame may be steel but the internal fittings such as window/door frames, skirtings, internal timber frame walls, roof trusses or anything timber or cellulose related are food for termites. It is rare for termites to completely destroy a home but they are capable of extracting up to 2kg of timber per day from your home. The cost of repairs is not just about replacing a piece of damaged timber here and there, it can mean replacing entire walls or fixing a sagging roof which can be really expensive.
The cost of full termite protection over 8 years can be as little as $60 a month considering the cost of a system plus inspections.
If you choose to only do one thing, it is have an annual termite inspection at the recommended intervals for the type of home you have, the area you live in and the risk that exists.
