Gold Coast Tweed Coast Termite damage repairs

Termite or white ant damage is a common occurrence in our region. We employ experienced carpenters to tackle these building issues. Termite can become extremely expensive if the problem is not noticed in the early stages. Some types of timber are more susceptible than others. For example Timbers such as hardwoods tend to be less favored by termites than the softer pines such as Radiata Pine which is a very common product for timber frames at the moment. Although hard woods can be eaten by termites in my experience the termites tend to eat the soft parts such as the gum veins or parts of the frame that get wet due to leakage. How ever they still can eat Australian hardwoods. Cypress pine is a timber that has an excellent track record against white ant damage in the 70’s cypress pine was used in many houses to deter ¬†white ants. Many but not all builders now use treated timber for framing It comes with a 30 year guarantee. However I have still seen termite damage on treated timber.

To alleviate any potential termite risk to your property it is a great idea to clean up any timber lying on the ground around your house, also have your house regularly inspected by a licensed pest controller. I use a company called Pest ex I find them extremely approachable and well mannered they also very competitive compared to other companies i have used, you can find them here Pestex.
