Pre-Construction Termite Protection

Prevention, as they say, is better than cure and the best way to prevent termite infestation is by adopting building practices that will pro-actively prevent a termite infestation.

Builders typically focus on addressing two conditions of reducing termite activities, wood to ground contact and moisture. In assuming our duty of care and offering different strategies for termite control, we also offer the following best-practice guidelines that your builders can follow with regard to pre-construction termite protection:

  • Limit wood-to-soil contact by supporting the wood with a strong concrete base
  • Wood in crawlspaces must be maintained eighteen inches above the ground to help avoid soil contact
  • If it is not possible to prevent the wood from touching the soil, you must then use a termite resistant or pressure treated type of wood
  • Avoid burying cellulose materials inside your building site
  • Ensure proper drainage from the foundation of the building, often done by introducing a slope
  • Offer the right amount of ventilation within crawlspaces that helps to reduce any build-up of moisture
  • Install sidings at exactly six inches above the soil, to further limit termite access or entry points

In some areas in Australia where subterranean termite infestation is common, we suggest that builders incorporate some of the control as well as prevention methods against termites. We also recommend you use some of the following techniques:

  • Treat the soil layer beneath your home with the best treatment for proactive protection
  • Install effective physical barriers to moreover reduce the access of termites in your area
  • Install monitoring systems and termite bait to help determine some termite activities
  • Incorporate shields and also barriers around the building foundation and utility openings to help block any entry points
