Termite Questions


Q:
What sort of damage do termites cause?
A:
Termites will attack any material containing cellulose, which is generally found in timber. Termites will enter a house unseen and will attack and destroy timber wall frames, roof timbers, bathroom cabinets, kitchen cupboards, timber door frames, electrical wiring, carpets and even furniture and books.
Q:
Is termite damage covered by insurance?
A:
No it is not. Other forms of damage to your home may be insurable but termite damage is not. So termite control is something you need to consider from the time you start building your home.
Q:
What do prospective home buyers think about termite protection?
A:
They often know little about termites, nor methods of termite control are available. Their builder usually chooses the type of protection used. However you do have a choice. You can request that your builder use the Termimesh Termite Control System and be safe in the knowledge that your home is protected by a world renowned leader in physical termite barrier protection.
Q:
Why is termite control important when building a new home?
A:
Underground termites are active in many parts of the USA. You cannot see them, in fact rarely do you hear about them, athough termites cause extensive damage to the structure of homes and commerical buildings. By installing a termite barrier at the time of construction you can reduce the risk of termite attack.
