For many new buildings, the creation of a chemically treated layer of soil surrounding and under the building can take place. This can allow an integrated soil barrier, together with the use of some physical barrier methods, to pipe penetrations within a concrete slab.
The termiticide may be applied to the soil under the slab and around the footings, construction joints, pipes, conduits and other structures of the house during construction to create a horizontal barrier. Further loosened soil around the perimeter of the house, including around all pipes and service facilities, is treated after construction to form a horizontal barrier.
Different chemicals can be used to protect your home and can last up to ten years. Call us for a free quote and discuss the range of options available in today’s market.
