Damage Found in Skirting and Windows

During a routine building and pest inspection at a Sunshine Coast property, we managed to uncover an unfortunate pesky surprise:

  • This house looked pristine inside but just below the surface was an army of termites eating away at the owners biggest asset – their home.
  • This damage was only discovered during a building and pest inspection and may have continued to go undetected for some time.
  • This example highlights the importance of undergoing a regular termite check on your home.
  • A BPI inspection using thermal camera technology will determine the presence of wood destroying insects such as termites, borers and wood decaying fungi.

How You Can Prevent Damage in Your Home

  • This recent finding shows how important it is to keep vegetation away from your wall cladding and keep the soil levels low. Termites can bridge across the top of a termite barrier using the vegetation or soil to gain access.
  • Having a 75mm clear zone between the ground level and the cladding or weepholes is vital to keeping creatures out
  • Regular termite checks are also important.
