Did you know that termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year and that the damage is not covered by homeowners’ insurance? All pest control companies are not the same and the same is true for their warranties. There are a variety of companies that offer a wide range of options that differ in what they cover and what they don’t. Choosing the right termite warranty can be tough, but protecting your largest investment shouldn’t have to be.
Questions to ask when reviewing your warranty options
What is the deductible?
The Hulett warranty provides you with a zero dollar deductible! This is not true for all pest control companies. Make sure you know what your deductible will be when comparing the cost of treatment options presented by other companies.
Is there a limit to the life of the agreement?
While some companies put a limit on the life of their warranty, Hulett’s renewable agreement is extendable for the life of the structure as long as annual coverage is maintained. It can be transferred at no additional charge to the new homeowner if you choose to sell your home! Other companies limit coverage making a full retreat necessary.
Will the cost increase after a certain period of time?
Be sure to ask when you might expect a rate increase on your warranty. Some companies in their agreements can change the cost of the renewal at any time without notice. But Hulett guarantees your renewal price with no increase for 4 years! Understanding the “real cost” of treatment will ensure you are comparing apples to apples when choosing a professional termite control company.
Are annual inspections included?
Not all companies provide a free annual inspection with their termite warranty. The Hulett warranty provides you with annual exterior inspection as well as offers a perimeter spray at no additional charge at the time of your annual inspection! Annual inspections are critical to ensuring your home remains protected helping to prevent long-term structural damage to your home by identifying early warning signs.
What happens when I sell my home?
If your home is sold, your Hulett warranty can be transferred to the new homeowner at no additional charge. Most companies will not allow for transfer of ownership and this can be detrimental to the marketability of your home.
Will anything void my warranty?
Read your agreement carefully. Some companies will void your warranty for structural issues like foundation cracks and masonry failure and other things like soil disruption. Other companies do not cover common things like soil disruption caused by new landscaping as enough to invalidate your warranty. But not with Hulett. You can rest assured that Hulett has you covered. Structural issues and/or soil disruption like these will not invalidate Hulett’s warranty! With Hulett’s professionalism and experience we take pride in taking care of our customers.
What treatment method would Hulett recommend to protect my home from termites?
Different types of termites require different types of treatments. Drywood termites require treatments such as Hulett’s structural (tent) fumigation or Hulett’s unique “No Tent” Termite Control. Both services are effective and customized by Hulett to meet your needs. Subterranean termites are treated with Hulett’s Liquid Defense treatment or a Termite Baiting System. No matter the type, Hulett provides all of the most effective and environmentally responsible treatments! Hulett can help you decide which one works best for you during your FREE inspection.
