Termites, it is amazing how one single, seemingly innocuous word can strike such fear in the hearts of homeowners. Sure, they are capable of doing a great deal of damage, but just how much of a risk do termites pose? It would seem that an infestation is serious considering the number of termite control companies that crop up every day.
Can these companies really save you that much money? How can you find a company that you can trust? Not all termite control companies are created equal. Get the answers here.
The Cost of Termite Damage
According to the National Pest Management Association, termites are responsible for more than $5 billion every year in property damage – and homeowners’ insurance policies don’t cover it. Homeowners insurance typically covers damage that is accidental and sudden, like flood, fire, and tornado. Termite damage is not sudden; it often goes on for a long time before it is discovered if the homeowner is not vigilant and does not have termite protection. What disqualifies from being covered by homeowner’s insurance, though, is that is it entirely preventable.
Termite damage can cost the average homeowner hundreds or even thousands of dollars. This termite damage repair calculator can give you a very general estimate, but it does not take into account any special materials or required construction that may be needed. The cost of termite damage repair depends entirely on how extensive the damage is and any special construction needs that your home has.
What Termite Control Companies Can Do for You
A good termite control company will install a quality termite baiting system like the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System with Always Active™ Technology and / or a quality liquid termite control product like Termidor® to manage any existing termites on the property and prevent future infestations. By keeping termites off of your property and out of your home, your termite control company can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars – and a lot of stress.
Some homeowners feel averse to the cost of a termite treatment. They may feel that there are no termites on their property or they are not threatened, but it is always best to be on the safe side. As the old saying in Georgia goes, “it’s not if you get termites, but when you get termites.” A few dollars “saved” today by avoiding a termite treatment could cost thousands down the road because you left your home unprotected by not investing in termite control. It isn’t worth the risk.
