If you own a house in a flood zone, you get flood insurance, right? It just makes sense. The investment you have in your home is one of the largest, if not THE largest investment you will ever make in your lifetime. The last thing you need is to have your insurance company tell you that the damage caused by flood waters eating away at the foundation of your home is not covered. You want to know that you are continually protected.
Now, floods don't happen all year long. You're not likely to have trouble in the dead of winter when all the water in New England is frozen solid. But insurance companies know this, and they make sure that the cost of coverage takes this into consideration. They don't cover your home only for months when floods "could" happen. That wouldn't be real protection. Would it? What if the ice begins to thaw earlier than expected?
If you've been considering termite protection for your home, it is important to understand what "real" termite protection looks like. While new termite infestations do not happen during winter in our coverage area, that doesn't mean we should not protect homes all year long. Not simply because infestations could happen earlier or later than expected, like in our flood example above; but also because, under the right circumstances, termites can feed on a home all winter long if they find a way in before the ground freezes and temperatures drop.
At Big Blue Bug Solutions, our technicians do ongoing and thorough inspections to make sure you don't get taken by surprise by these silent destroyers. We offer a one-year termite warranty that can be renewed annually and also has the ability to be transferred to a new owner if you sell your home. That is complete coverage you can count on, all year, every year.
Termites cost property owners several billion dollars in damages every year in the United States. In fact, termites cause more damage than fires, floods, and storms combined. Subterranean termites attack silently from the ground and have the capacity to completely total a home. They are so hard to detect; they have been known to avoid the trained eye of certified home inspectors. Don't let these home wreckers catch you by surprise.
So, is it important to have year-round termite protection? You betcha! You should never live with limited or partial termite damage insurance. At Big Blue Bug Solutions, we offer coverage you can count on all year long. Life has enough surprises. This is one surprise you can live without.
