The risk of termite damage is a very real threat, even to new Australian homes.
When you consider a new home is possibly the largest investment you will make in your lifetime, it makes sense to protect every aspect of it. Unfortunately, the very core of that investment in many homes is simply not safe with the threat of termite damage on the rise in Australia. A staggering 1 in every 3 Australian homes suffer termite damage, with repair costs not uncommonly in excess of $40,000.
Most people believe it won’t happen to them but the statistics don’t back that up. These silent destroyers often go undetected until the damage is excessive and homeowners are often surprised to find out such damage is not covered by most insurance companies. When it comes to termite resistance in your home, there is no safer option than steel framing. Quite simply, termites can not eat steel frames, so why trust anything else?
