Termite prevention plan
- Always ensure that the exposed slab edge termite barrier is clean and unobstructed.
- Ensure garden beds, plants, mulch etc. do not cover the exposed slab edge termite barrier.
- Never stack anything against the outside walls of your home.
- Engage the installer of your termite protection system to conduct 12 monthly termite inspections on your home.
- Maintain your 50-Year $100,000 Termite Damage Cover
- If for whatever reason you choose to cover the exposed slab edge termite barrier, you must first consult with the installer of your termite protection system, who will need to engage to install an additional physical termite barrier.
Your home has been constructed with an industry leading termite management system.
The protection system includes the use of a physical termite barrier installed to all key termite entry points, as well as an exposed slab edge around the perimeter of the home to provide a visual inspection zone.
The visual inspection zone either runs 75mm horizontally out from the bottom of the brickwork and/or Hebel or 75mm vertically for light weight cladding. This integrated termite management approach is designed to stop & repel termites in their tracks, ultimately pushing them out in to areas where they can be easily detected during annual termite inspections.
For the system to work best, the edge of your slab, or mowing strip, should always be left exposed. Always position garden plants away from your external walls, and never stack anything against the wall, as this only serves to hide termite entry. It’s always recommended to also consider additional termite protection advice when preparing for your driveway design, or completing other concreting/decking around the house as these works can sometimes compromise your system.
As a part of your total cover, the manufacturer of your termite system provides a 50-Year $100,000 Termite Damage extended warranty program. This cover is initially provided complimentary at handover and is extended each year subject to annual termite inspections by the installer of your system. In addition to the required annual professional inspection, you should also conduct monthly visual inspections around the perimeter of your home to ensure there are no signs of termite activity.
