Termite barrier for building construction in Albury, Wodonga, Rutherglen, and surrounding areas

We are accredited installers of industry-leading termite barriers for pre-construction. We only use a termite barrier that offers a 50 year warranty on their products. Our barriers are CodeMark certified and conform to Australian Standards.

Greenzone Termite Barrier

Greenzone is a great new termite barrier product on the Australian market that solves a few of the problems that some other physical barriers have: how to deal with cold joins and expansion joints.

Greenzone includes an expansion foam product that takes the place of Abelflex in expansion joints. It is a chemically-treated product that repels termites. It is very useful in cladding designs and extensions. It is non-intrusive to bricklayers (unlike sheeting products) and is installed immediately before concreting paths is done.

Benefits of Greenzone termite barrier to Builders

  • Complete termite management system, including slab penetrations, slab perimeter, paths, in-fill slabs, isolated piers, and electrical conduit.
  • Designed to last the economical life of the building.
  • The expansion foam is non-obtrusive to bricklayers and cladding, unlike sheeting products.
  • Greenzone also includes a sheeting product, required for brick veneer or cavity brick construction.
  • Greenzone Sock Collars are non-obtrusive to concreters, as they don’t extend far out from the penetration.

Homeguard Termite Barrier

Homeguard is among the most trusted pre-construction physical termite barriers on the market. It is developed by FMC. FMC is a leading chemistry company responsible for the development of many of our most trusted products used across the industry. It is for this reason that we have used Homeguard since starting this company.  

We are accredited installers and have been working with this termite barrier product since 2008, and other similar products since the early 2000s.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Australian Standard AS 3660.1-2017 was updated to exclude the use of non-replenishable chemical soil barriers as the only form of termite protection.

We are able to spray under the slab, but we have to also install a physical termite barrier or a reticulated chemical soil barrier. Please contact us for more information on reticulated chemical soil barriers. 

Our pre-construction physical termite barriers come with a 50-year product warranty

This warranty requires that the termite barrier is not disturbed after installation and that the homeowner arranges for us to inspect the house and the termite barrier at least annually.

Do date, we have never had to treat termites in a house where we have installed a physical termite barrier. We have been installing Homeguard since 2008 and Greenzone since 2018.

Homeguard and Greenzone are industry-leading products.

Homeguard is produced by FMC, one of the largest chemicals manufacturers in the world.

Greenzone is a new product on the market that has demonstrated great quality and ease-of-use, as well as flexible labels that allow us to solve problems that Homeguard cannot.

We are offering flexible payment plans for people who have been financially affected by COVID-19. If you need to arrange a payment plan, please call us and we are more than happy to help.

At this time, the information from federal and state governments is that it is still okay for those in service industries to go to work. We are doing so, while still obeying the rules regarding social distancing:

  • We are doing our best to keep a minimum 1.5m distance from our clients and other residents during our visits. 
  • We are sanitising our hands on arrival and frequently during our visits. We also regularly disinfect our tools before bringing them inside. If you want us to wear protective gloves and a face mask, please let us know – we’re happy to do what we can to help you feel safe.
  • We ask that if you are unwell or isolating that you tell us before we arrive so that we can either reschedule or arrange for other ways to do our job.

Our office procedures remain largely unchanged. We are a mobile business and are very accustomed to running our business on the road. We have no central office to close up. We already have cloud-connected services in place and our business is not largely paper-based.

At the moment we are not experiencing any supply problems. Our suppliers are still trading and we have plenty of stock of our most common chemistry and products to do our job.

Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you!
