If termites are permitted to continue there attack on your home undetected for extended periods of time the damage can be so severe that the property may need to be knocked down and rebuilt. This is no exaggeration.
The Australian Standard recommends that regular Termite Inspections are carried out on homes every 6 months if there is no termite barrier or termite prevention measures in place and every 12 months or Annual Termite Inspections where there is a Termite Management System in place.
Even newly built homes require regular termite inspections. Termite management systems put in place during construction can be very effective in preventing concealed access by termites but require annual inspections to make sure they have not been breached and to keep the manufacturers warranty in place.
The good news is that with regular inspections we will often find termites in the early stages of an attack on your home and can be treated quickly and at an affordable price and most times before any structural damage has been done.
