Termite Pre-Construction Treatment

Termites are quite possibly the most dreaded pest of all, even though they do not bite or carry any type of disease that can be passed on to humans. Nearly every homeowner is aware of the massive amount of damage that termites can cause to the infrastructure that makes up their home, however. In fact, it's estimated that termites cause several millions of dollars worth of damage to homes and other buildings throughout the United States every single year. Aside from treating termite infestations after they arise, steps can also be taken to prevent termites from affecting new dwellings.

Termite Pre-Construction Treatments

Prevention is always better than cure, and this is true when referring to the issue of termite infestations as well. While it's possible to effectively remove and treat termite infestations after they arise, it's far better to prevent them from occurring by making use of termite pre-construction treatments. Termite resistant wood is sometimes used during the building process to prevent future issues with these insects, but other preventative treatment options also exist.

What are Termite Pre-Construction Treatments?

When you begin building a new home, there are a couple of different options you can choose to prevent your future home from becoming infested with termites down the line. These are referred to as pre-construction treatments because they take place before the home is actually built.

Why are they Important?

Termite pre-construction treatments are important because they can drastically lower the risk of a home becoming infested with termites later on. Since they work to prevent the problem from ever arising, pre-construction treatments prevent expensive structural damage from ever taking place. In addition, they can give homeowners much needed peace of mind that their future home is protected from termites.

How are they Performed?

There are several ways that termite pre-construction treatments can be carried out. One method of protection can come from using termite resistant wood to build your home with. Secondary to termite resistant wood, several barrier treatment options can also be carried out. Barrier options use chemically treated soil, blocks, or insulation to provide an effective barrier against termite infestations. Liquid chemical solutions can also be applied to the soil surrounding where a new home will be built to prevent future termite issues from arising. Preventative measures are much more affordable than attempting to solve the problem and repair the resultant damage after it occurs.

Termites cause millions of dollars worth of damage to homes throughout the United States on a yearly basis. The reason that termites can cause so much damage is that they can exist for a long period of time before you are aware that they are present. With each passing day, the damage they inflict on the internal structures of your home increases. This structural damage is very expensive and time-consuming to repair and can sometimes even lead to serious bodily harm resulting from unstable structures within the home.
