Termite Protection for new homes and renovations
Newcastle and Hunter Valley

If you are building a new home or carrying out renovations, it’s important to consider termite protection at the planning stage.

There are strict regulations in place that must be followed to get building approval certificates. The regulations and need for termite protection applies to many renovations as well as new builds.

But it’s not just about meeting regulations – CSIRO estimate that 1 in 5 new homes will be attacked by termites within 5 years of construction! You want to protect your investment!

It’s a good idea to consult an independent termite professional rather than just rely on your builder, to ensure you get the correct advice and a range of options to consider.

Guidelines and regulations

When building a new home, adding an extension or carrying out a renovation it is important to make sure that your home is fully protected from termites.

There are detailed regulations that cover the termite protection requirements for new homes and extensions / renovations, detailed in Australian Standard 3660.1 and the various building codes.

A well designed termite protection system is integrated with the physical attributes of the building to prevent concealed entry by termites.

It is important to check the requirements for all building work, including extensions and renovations (especially bathroom, laundry and kitchen work) at the planning stage.

Building work will be assessed by the building certifier both during and at the end of the renovation. If the building or extension / renovation does not comply with the requirements they will need to be corrected (can be expensive) and in the worse-case scenario, the inspector can order for the building / extension to be taken down.

If your particular building activity requires certification, failure to get approvals and appropriate certification can impact your building insurance and effect your ability to sell the property in the future.
