WHAT WARRANTIES ARE AVAILABLE –
Lets get straight into what a Warranty is and how it protects you, the home owner. Most 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, they will come out and treat them FREE. Note: this is not a timber replacement warranty.
Timber Replacement Product Warranty or as stated by Termidor, $100,000.00 Timber Replacement assurance warranty – They cover the damage if the live termites are found travelling through the treated area, so this is if the product fails. This is great support, but the hardest thing in termite management is finding the termite entry point, as the home in most occasions is never pulled down just to find a termite entry point. Exterra Interception & Baiting System comes with a $100,000.00 warranty, as normal conditions apply.
Termite Insurance – The first only termite insurance backed by Rapid Solutions under writer Pacific International. This policy covers termite treatments and repairs if live termites are located within the home, regardless of how they entered the home. To obtain this 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. Like any warranty or insurance policy the property must be inspected annually without fail. This product is also available for Physical Termite Barriers.
It is understandable that if you have massive gardens beds covering exterior weep holes, inadequate drainage, high moisture or leaks then it is highly likely insurance is not possible until the conducive conditions are rectified.
