Protecting Your Investment
Your family’s home is typically your largest investment, and it is important to make sure that you have insurance against termite damage. Georgia is consistently the #2 state in the nation for termite damage claims; however a standard home owner’s policy does not cover termite damage. For this reason, Skyline Pest Solutions offers this “insurance”. Skyline’s termite repair warranty covers full replacement of the damaged area from a new termite infestation, once the warranty is in place.
Moisture is a conducive condition that can create termite problems for your home. All vehicles of water diversion away from the structure can drastically affect the degree of termite activity a structure may incur. At Skyline, we offer education to our customers to help them understand the gravity of conducive conditions around their home. This education is our way of helping the homeowner understand the potential causes of termite presence and hopefully, help avoid termite damage altogether. Keeping mulch and pine straw 6 to 8 inches from the structure’s foundation can be an effective measure of reducing moisture along the exterior perimeter of the home. As mulch and pine straw prevent moisture in the soil from drying out, it also creates a harborage area for many household pests. Termites will also gravitate towards these same moist areas, even if it is above the surface of the soil. Having heavy or dense bushes along the structure’s foundation is another way that moisture is prohibited from drying. These conditions can create a conducive condition for new and continued termite presences.
There is no better defense than Skyline’s Total Termite Protection which includes three important steps:
- Inspection: On our initial visit, your Termite Specialist will thoroughly inspect your home including the interior, exterior and surrounding property to assess your individual situation and needs. You’ll receive written specifications, customized diagrams and an inspection report.
- Protection Plan: After the inspection, your Termite Specialist will recommend a treatment based on your needs, keeping your home’s specific construction type in mind. We understand that every home is unique, and not all customers’ needs are the same.
- Ongoing Protection: With both the Sentricon® Always Active™ System and Liquid Treatment, we evaluate your structure once a year to monitor the system. If you have a termite problem during your warranty period, we will re-treat the problem at no additional charge. We also offer repair and retreat warranties.
Having an inspection for termites and securing a termite warranty your home can be a valuable selling point when you decide to put your home on the market. The warranty remains on the structure and automatically transfers to the purchaser. At Skyline, we have no transfer fees like some of our competitors. As most realtors who operate in Georgia know about the associated termite pressure, it is very common for them to ask for the seller of a home to offer this type of warranty as an incentive for the purchaser to choose their home. This is much like offering a home warranty.
