Termite Damage – Is it Covered Under Home Insurance?

Termite Damage - Is it Covered Under Home Insurance?

Termite Damage – Is it Covered Under Home Insurance?

Home Insurance DOES NOT cover Termite Damage and Activity!

Termites will continue to attack buildings if they are not fully treated with a system in accordance to Australian standards AS3660.

How Do I Know If My House Has A Termite Management System In Place?

To check if your Brisbane Home is protected against Termite attacks with a current Termite Barrier – check your external power box for a durable termite notice (it’s a sticker) make sure it is in date, if not call us ASAP for advice.


Termite Activity Is Like Cancer To Your Home – If You Ignore Termites, They Will Literally Kill Your Home!

It can be devastating for a home owner when we find structural damage to their biggest asset – the family home.

Over the past 18 years, I have found a number of clients that have had large amounts of termite damage occur since their last termite inspection, and all of these homes did NOT have a current Termite Management System in place.

Some of these clients had termite infestations when they first contacted our business, but did not want to complete the full treatment process, opting to save money and cross their fingers and hope for the best.

I have found that termites always come back when the customer does not install a termite management system to deter future attacks.

When you are forced to sell the family home, can you imagine how devastating it is to only get land value for the block, because your home is riddled with massive structural termite damage.


What Is The Average Cost Of A Termite Management System?

The average cost of a termite management system using Termidor when treating the average size home is only about $3,000+ and this should last about 8 years under optimum conditions. When you look at the big picture it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind


What Does it Cost to Protect Your Financial Future?

Less than 1% of the total value of your home!


What’s The Average Sale Price Of A Home With Considerable Structural Termite Damage?

The cost can be less than land value, due to demolition costs to remove the damaged house.


Are Termites Really So Bad?

Annually, termites damage more homes in Queensland than fire, floods and cyclones combined!


If Termites Are So Bad – I Should Be Covered By My Home Insurance, Right?

No!!! None of the Big insurance companies will cover termite damage. This point right here should tell you how real the termite problem in Queensland is!!!


Prevention Is Better Than the Cure! AND Less Costly!

All Brisbane Home Owners should have their home checked with a Termite Inspection AT LEAST every 12 months. We have rescued homes from termite attacks in the Brisbane area that had lost over 40% of their home due to undetected termites, and that level of damage only took less than 6 months!

    Overall We Are Very HAPPY With The Service We Get From Silks Every Year

    5 STAR RATING – Silks have been looking after our home in East Brisbane for the past 5 years. We had them install a termite barrier around the home shortly after we purchased it in January 2012, and we have Adam come out every year to inspect for termites. What we love about Silks is that they send us a reminder when we are due for the inspection, so we dont have to worry about keeping track of it, we just get the reminder and book it straight in. I’ve found Adam to be very switched on and he is very thorough at what he does. Overall we are very happy with the service we get from Silks every year and will continue to use them for years to come.

    We Were So WORRIED When We Found Termites

    5 STAR RATING – We recently had Adam from Silks Pest Control come out to our home in Holland Park. I had found termites when I was vaccuming and had hit the skirting board with the vacuum – the skirting board literally caved in! And then we saw the termites running around in there and started to panic! I asked our Neighbour who she had recently used for her Termite problems and she highly recommended Adam from Silks. So we gave him a call that morning, and he was just so helpful and calming over the phone. He came out that afternoon, performed the inspection, and found 4 other spots where the termites were. He treated all of those areas, then came back a few weeks later to make sure the treatment had worked. He also explained that we had no barrier in place to prevent termite attacks and provided… Read More “We Were So WORRIED When We Found Termites”
