“Traditional” Termite Control Treatments
Traditional Termite Control Treatments are used on homes with foundation that ARE NOT one solid piece.
Custom built homes, and homes over 10 years old, often have foundations that were poured in different sections. First they poured the “stem walls”, these are the supporting foundation walls under the perimeters exterior, and under the supporting walls of the home. After stem walls are in place concrete contractors poured the slab foundation. This method of foundation has been replaced in NEWER construction with “Post Tension” foundations that are one solid piece of concrete!
Termite Control Treatments on this type of foundation are totally different, and cost much more than a Termite Treatment for a “Post Tension” foundation.
Older style foundations leave PLENTY of room for Termites to enter a home through TINY cracks, or spaces between stem walls and slab. Trenches must be deep enough around the affected foundation to horizontally drill through the stem wall. Horizontally drilling through these stem walls allows us to treat under interior foundations, and areas where Termites come through.
