Termites can cause expensive damage which most homeowners insurance does not cover. A termite infestation typically isn’t noticed by homeowners until it has matured; termites live out of sight, in walls and wooden furniture. A mature colony of termites demands a constant food supply; they will feed on a home or building’s wood structure and furnishings, causing damage day after day until the colony is eradicated.
Because termite infestations can go unnoticed until serious damage has been inflicted on the home or commercial building, pre-construction termite control is encouraged as a preventative measure whenever a home or structure is being built.
Preconstruction Termite Pretreatments
There are a number of parameters that determine what type of pretreatment is appropriate for your particular project. This is determined by the type of construction, budget and the builder’s time constraints and deadlines.
In Florida, there are several types of pretreatments that are allowed:
- Soil pretreatments are insecticide treatments to the soil that form a chemical barrier under the concrete foundation. Based on budget, contractors and builders have several options for this type of treatment.
- Lumber pretreatments, commonly referred to as borate treatments, act to place a chemical barrier on lumber and framing surfaces of a structure before sheetrock and interior finishing.
Benefits of Pre-Construction Termite Control
Preventative pre-construction termite control can stop termite colonies from compromising your home or business. Our skilled termite control specialists perform effective termite prevention treatments which will protect your investment from damage inflicted by harmful termites.
As your home or building is being constructed, our trained experts apply liquid termiticide, as well as other deterrents to prevent later destruction caused by termites. Performing termite prevention treatments during the construction phase is ideal, as without walls, floor coverings and other components in place, our termite control specialists can reach areas that are difficult to access once the home or business building is complete. This allows us to better cover the concrete and wood components of your structure for more thorough termite prevention.
From small single family home additions to multi-story hi-rise construction projects, Price Termite & Pest Control can assist you with the pretreatment requirements of your project. Our estimating department is available to review and meet all project specifications. Please contact us at (888) 630-2847 to discuss the scope of your project.
