Termite Bonds

A termite bond is a contract between a property owner and a termite treatment company that addresses future termite infestations. There are essentially two types of termite bonds:

  1. Retreat only bond- This type of bond requires the termite extermination company to retreat the property in the event that a future termite infestation arrives, noting that the damage must be NEW damage.

  2. Repair bond - Not only requires the company to retreat the property if termites are found, but also to repair any damage caused by the infestation.
Termite bonds are the most cost effective way to protect your home from the devastating impact of termites. Remember, most homeowners insurance policies DO NOT cover termite damage. This small investment now can save you thousands of dollars later. Contact us for more information.
