What sort of termite barrier do you need?

The type of termite barrier installation you require can very depending on many factors. This includes the construction style of your home and your budget.

Physical barriers can be installed underneath your home during the build stage. These often come in the form of plastic sheeting impregnated with termiticides.

Chemical barriers are a very popular post construction option in Darwin. This involves treating the soil around the perimeter of your home.

Chemical barriers can include:

  • Drilling and injecting chemicals through concrete areas
  • Trenching around your home and directly treating the soil
  • Installing a replenishment system and applying the chemical into the soil via a pipe.

Replenishment systems generally cost more to install. These systems however will cost you significantly less when the chemical has expired and your barrier needs to be retreated.
