What Are Pre-Construction Termite Barriers?

Everyone knows that termites are dangerous, but people often don’t know that the best way to protect your property begins with construction. Pre-construction termite barriers are a great way to protect your investment and keep it safe. Central Coast Pest Exterminators has delivered termite barriers for homes and businesses across the region. Our team has kept hundreds of homes safe from termites, and we’re ready to do the same for you.

Did you know that termites can start causing damage during the construction phase? These pests are experts at finding wood. If termites are present during building, they can cause significant damage to your property before you even move in.

What is a Pre-construction Termite Barrier?

Pre-construction termite barriers are used to protect the foundations of your new building to prevent termites from gaining access. Concrete slabs are not termite-proof on their own, but when used in conjunction with termite barriers, they can be very effective.

Barriers operate as a form of termite control and can be customised to fit your situation or budget. Several options are available for termite barriers, including physical, chemical, or a mixture of the two. If you’re unsure what the proper termite barrier is for your needs, our team of experts can help you choose the best option.

Chemical barriers are injected into the soil of your construction site before the concrete slab is poured. These chemicals contain termiticides that will repel termites and exterminate any that come too close. While these termiticides are powerful enough to keep out the termites, they’re also safe enough that they won’t harm humans, plants, or animals.

A pre-construction physical termite barrier is an underground system that is installed around the perimeter of a building in order to prevent termites from entering. The barrier is typically made of metal mesh or plastic. Each barrier is designed to block termites from tunnelling under the foundation and into the structure.

Do I Need a Pre-construction Termite Barrier?

Termites are one of the most destructive pests in Australia. The Australian government estimated that one in five Australian homes are damaged by termites. A termite infestation can cause extensive damage to your home, with average repairs costing over $10 000. By the time many property owners notice the signs of a termite infestation, it’s already too late, and these pests have had the chance to cause irreversible damage.

A pre-construction termite barrier can protect your residence from termites before they have a chance to enter and cause damage. By installing a termite barrier during your home’s construction, you can save yourself the time, stress and expense of dealing with a termite infestation.
