Pre-Construction Termite Protection
If you are building a new home or renovating an existing building, Termite Protection must be installed.
Australian Standard 3660.1 states that a physical termite management sysytem must be incorporated into all new building works.
As a general rule, all penetrations and the perimeter must be protected (however the exact minimum requirements for pre-construction termite protection can differ).
Depending on where the concrete slab is located, you may not be required to install termite protection; however it is strongly recommended that you do. By installing termite protection underneath the concrete slab – you avoid the need to drill and inject the slab in the future.
To avoid any unexpected surprises, it is best to obtain a quote for pre-construction termite protection before starting your building works. This way, you will know exactly what termite protection is required and when it should be installed. As your building work progresses, you can then contact us at each required stage and we can organise for a Technician to come out and install the termite protection.
