Pre-Construction Termite Barrier vs. Treatment

There are many termite management options for new homes, yet not all termite and pest control barriers & treatments are the same. You only get one chance to specify your termite management system, which means choosing a proven, non-poisonous pre-construction anti-termite barrier could be the wisest decision you will make while building your new home.

The purpose of any termite pretreatment for new construction is to deter hidden termite entry and reduce the risk of termite attack, so it is imperative that you select the safest option for your home, family, and environment. Prevention is the best option when it comes to termite protection for new construction. Choose a preconstruction barrier with our market-leading stainless steel termite barriers, rather than a chemical based treatment.

Why Are Pre-Construction Termite Barriers So Important?

Termites or white ants are active in all mainland areas of Australia. Therefore, it is a requirement by the National Building Code that all new homes be equipped with a termite management system or be built with termite resistant structural materials. Here are some facts about termite damage and repair costs.

  • 130,000 homes each year are attacked by termites.
  • The average damage cost is approximately $10,000.
  • Termite damage is not covered by home or contents insurance.

It’s important to remember, treated timber and steel roof homes are not termite proof. Other areas of the home are still vulnerable to termite attacks. For example, timber floors, kitchen and bathroom cabinets and even electrical wiring can be susceptible.
