Termite Inspections: Roof Void

A serious part of your termite inspections is the roof void, its normally hot, dirty and difficult, We simply do our best within the situation provided. As nearly 90% of homes now have insulation this makes our job extremely difficult as the standards states we can only access areas that are safe to do so due to crawl space requirements which is compliance we stick to, we really enjoy our work but we really must take precaution during our work activities the last thing you or TPC want is an injury in the roof void. Foil insulation and asbestos sheeting prevent us accessing the roof void unfortunately.

Termite Inspections: Exposed Slab Edge Homes

The Smallest of things when dealing with Termites can be the start to an expensive exercise. The Soil levels/gardens around a home are required to be underneath all weep holes on external walls by 75mm, Slab edges on Monolithic slabs need to be clear 75mm above ground levels. Take a look at the picture below of what gardens and high soil levels produce if Termites discover these areas, as shown below a Weatherboard external wall in ground contact and gardens covering slab edges  –

This House Slab, should be exposed 75mm above the ground level, allowing a Visual Inspection of the slab edge. The Weatherboard showing in the photo should never touch the ground as this provides and concealed entry point for termites and creates moisture issues.

The Weep holes in the external wall should also be exposed 75mm above ground level, around 1 brick level.

Treated Timbers in Homes are great for reducing the effects of Termite damage to structural timbers, But Termites still will have a go at the treated timbers – See photo below
