“Chain” service companies can usually weather economic ups and downs. But local businesses don’t have set prices because their variables – material and employee expenses, cost of doing business – are never static.
When a local company provides services, it usually offers free estimates. Pest management companies’ estimates for termite elimination and prevention are “guesstimates.” The price you actually pay for termite treatment cost may be higher or lower. A “quote” is the bottom line. It should be written and delivered to the customer before service occurs.
Up-Front Termite Treatment Cost
When you have a termite infestation, you want an efficient, effective extermination treatment. Budget Brothers Termite & Pest Elimination treatments aren’t cookie-cutter services. Still, we can provide an accurate estimate based on critical factors other companies don’t include.
The level of infestation and the specific location of termite activity are factors. Your building’s square footage and occupants’ general health are equally important. In Arizona, homes may have floating-slab foundations. We may need to drill into these solid cement slabs to solve a termite problem. This is an additional expense.
The average pest control company in The Valley won’t tell you about repairs. It’s not their business, anyway. Your termite infestation is our business, but we believe you need to know the kinds of repairs your home will require. We can guesstimate those expenses. And that’s included in our Budget Brothers comprehensive termite solution estimate.
Types of Termite Structural Damages
If a termite colony gets to the structures that support your home, they can render it unlivable until the damage is repaired. And it’s not just wood structures that are susceptible to termite damage. Termites also enjoy feeding on plaster, metal siding and insulation. –HowStuffWorks
Subterranean termites are prevalent in South-Central Arizona. The property damage from subterranean termites is more than $2 billion every year. Some of the structural damages that are part of the overall termite treatment cost for U.S. homeowners include:
- Decks – Wood porches and decks are connected to the soil in your yard. This forms a direct path for termites to work “from the ground up” and inflict damage to the structure.
- Door/window casings – Tiny cracks or chips around doors and windows are all termites need to gain entry.
- Interior – Termites damage carpets and furniture, too. Minor but visual damage to interior walls, paneling, ceilings, and floors must be repaired.
- Structural – The behind-the-scenes wood support areas for your roof, floors, and walls can suffer the most extensive (and expensive) kind of termite damage.
