Termite Damage

Subterranean termites are active throughout all parts of mainland Australia.

Subterranean termites are active throughout all parts of mainland Australia. Termites are secretive by nature and rarely you will see them out in the open and they cause more damage to homes each year than floods, fires and storms combined.

They will attack:

  • Timber roof and wall timbers. Whilst steel roof and wall construction is termite resistant there are many other parts of your home that termites can cause costly damage to. These include: 
  • Floor boards - both timber and laminate 
  • Kitchen and bathrooms cupboards 
  • Skirting boards 
  • Carpet strips 
  • Timber furniture
  •  Books and photos 
  • Electrical cables 

According to the CSIRO, one in five Australian homes will be attacked by termites.

Australia wide, Termites cause over $800 million damage every year with an average damage bill of $8,000.

The risk of attack is so high that insurance companies exclude termite damage from contents and house insurance. Which means you must pay for the cost of repairs not to mention the disruption to your home life and family. Simply put, you cannot insure your home against termite damage as you can against other natural threats.
