Rest assured there are $100,000.00 Timber Replacement Warranties available, however not all warranties are the same, nor is every property constructed the same.
You may have the nicest looking home in the world, however if the home is constructed in a way that does not allow adequate termite protection, you may find you are not able to gain Termite insurance or a Termite damage timber replacement warranty.
Situations that may stop a warranty being issued are, The home has split levels and back filled walls where chemical application is limited to install the system in accordance with the Australian Standards AS3660.2 – 2017, however you can rest assure that your next option maybe the Exterra Interception & Baiting System.
Homes constructed on concrete slabs that do not have internal construction joints or step down retaining walls in slabs or split levels or have been protected by a physical barrier are more than likely the ones that can obtain a warranty on the installation of a chemical soil barrier or treated zone.
WHAT WARRANTIES ARE AVAILABLE –
Lets get straight into what a Warranty is and how it protects you and your property. Most Pest Control companies offer a ‘treatment warranty’ this is stating that if live termites are located inside the interior of the structure, after a system has been installed, the installation company will come out and treat the live termites for FREE. Note: this is not a timber replacement warranty or an Termite insurance policy .
Timber Replacement Product Warranty or as stated by Termidor, $2 million dollar Timber Replacement assurance warranty – BASF cover the damage and make good repairs if the live termites are found travelling through the Termidor Treated zone area, “only if the product fails”. BASF offer great support, however the hardest task at imes in termite management is finding the termite entry point, as the home in most occasions is never pulled down to the bare bones just to find a termite entry point. Alternative solutions are the Exterra Interception & Baiting System comes with a $100,000.00 warranty *conditions apply.
Termite Insurance – Using a range of different products
Termite Insurance – The first only termite insurance backed by Rapid Solutions underwriter Pacifici International. This Policy covers Termite treatments and repairs if live termites are located within the home. To obtain this Termite Insurance you must have a full monitoring and baiting system like Exterra Managed by a professional licensed and accredited company like The Pest Company or a treated zone or chemical barrier installed with products recommended by The Pest Company. Like any warranty or insurance policy the property must be inspected annually without fail. This product is also available for physical barriers installed by The Pest Company.
