Brent Vann, our Vice President of Operations here at Buckaroo wants you to be educated on what you’re buying when it comes to termite prevention warranties.
Termite swarm season is upon us, and here at Buckaroo Pest Protection, we want to make sure our community is educated and prepared when it comes to protecting their homes and properties from termites.
Termites are found in more than 5 million homes on average each year in the United States, and it is estimated that termite damage costs U.S. homeowners $5 billion each year. Not insurance agencies, but homeowners, like you. What’s even worse is termites can be living in your home even without visible signs of damage.
During March through mid-summer, termites “swarm” which means that they become much more active, and more visible to the average home owner. (Scarily enough, termites actually don’t sleep. They will eat 24 hours a day seven days a week, year around. Even outside of swarm season). This is why it is crucial to protect your home and property before it’s too late, especially if you start seeing termites within your home in the coming months- it most likely means your house has already been under attack.
When it comes to protection though, homeowners have hundreds of providers who offer seemingly the same service, and the same warranties… Right?
There are several different types products and treatments available to pest control companies to treat termites. However, knowing the difference between when a sales technician offers you a Retreat Warranty vs. a Repair Warranty could save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars.
Even though both cost the same at the time of the initial inspection, over 90% of pest control companies will only offer Retreat Warranties. Here’s why:
Retreat Warranties only guarantees that if termites are found after initial treatment that your pest control company will come back out and retreat your home once again.
Any and all damage is the home owners responsibility. The home owner’s cost. The home owner’s problem. The pest control company has no obligation to do anything other than come back out to the home and treat the home again, with the same product most likely that didn’t serve it’s purpose in the first place.
Buckaroo is part of the small minority offering higher quality service and protection by offering Repair Warranties.
Repair Warranties holds your pest control company responsible for the quality of their work. In the event termites are found after initial treatment, not only does the provider come out and retreat the home for termites, we also are accountable for the any and all damage caused by the termites.
We’re willing to stand behind our work and our products.
90% of our competitors aren’t. Which warranty are you going to choose?
