Termite protection is mandatory to receive your final occupancy certificate.

In mainland Australia, termites are active in most areas, and independent surveys indicate that around 150,000 homes will fall victim to termite attacks each year. Unfortunately, the average cost of termite damage amounts to $15,000. However, it's important to note that termite damage is typically not covered by home and contents insurance policies. Insurance companies often exclude damage caused by vermin, and termites fall under this category. The high risk and cost associated with termite damage are the primary reasons for this exclusion.

AS 3660.1 establishes the guidelines for designing and constructing subterranean termite management systems for new buildings and building works. These measures are essential to safeguard against termite infestations. As part of the building contract, builders are obligated to incorporate an approved form of termite protection. The primary goal of these termite barriers is to prevent concealed termite access from the ground, ensuring the long-term protection of the structure from potential termite damage.

Whilst rodents aren’t dangerous, they can be carriers of disease that cause concern. They typically live for an average of 3-4 years, but can multiply quite quickly!

How Does it Work?

Preconstruction termite barrier installation is a crucial step in safeguarding a building from potential termite infestations. The process involves several stages to ensure effective protection against these destructive pests.

The first step is carried out prior to the concrete slab pour. During this phase, pipe penetration collars will be installed. These collars act as protective barriers around pipes and utility openings in the foundation, preventing termites from gaining access through these vulnerable points. This initial measure is essential to create a solid foundation for the subsequent termite barrier installation.

After the completion of the slab pour and external drainage work, our Australian made termite barrier is installed on the slab. The barrier offers a highly effective triple-layer sheet barrier which uses a combination of physical and chemical properties to ensure termites are repelled into an inspection zone.

Once the termite barrier is successfully installed, the property owner or builder will receive a certification of installation from Sydney Pest Crew. This certification serves as evidence that the termite barrier has been correctly installed and meets the required standards for termite prevention under Australian Standards.

Having obtained the certification, the property owner can then submit it to the local council as part of the documentation required to receive the final occupation certificate. The final occupation certificate signifies that the building complies with all relevant regulations and can be legally occupied. It also provides peace of mind to the occupants, knowing that their property is safeguarded against the potentially devastating effects of termite infestations.

    Professional Pre-Construction Treatment

    Both chemical and physical barriers can be created to force the pests into an area where they can be readily detected. We use industry-standard procedures to prevent insects from getting access to the hidden areas.

    The treatment is important during pre-construction because it is only during this phase that it can reach all the places. Access to such spots can become impossible after the construction is finished. This also prevents your family and guests from coming in contact with the applications.

    At Sydney Pest Crew, we work together with builders, owners, and developers. We make recommendations on the best pre-construction pest and termite control options. We ensure the effectiveness of all the pest management services we provide.

    If you have a new construction project or extension project at hand, call us for further advice. Call us today at 1300 288 342 or write to us using this Online Form. We will revert to your message at the earliest.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I need termite protection on my new build?

    Yes. Under building regulations, your new home must be fitted with a termite management system or be built with termite resistant structural materials.

    How do physical termite barriers work?

    A properly installed physical barrier, in coordination with construction elements, aims to block hidden termite access to homes. Termites would need to reveal themselves to overcome the barrier, making them detectable during routine annual termite inspections, mandatory to meet Australian Standards.
