Termites
Subterranean termites are native to this area. Your home has been treated with a chemical barrier to deter the termites from entering your home. Landscaping may break this protective barrier or the routine maintenance that you lot requires. It is important that you inspect the perimeter of your home on a regular basis. If you notice evidence of termites, such as a mud tube on your foundation wall, call us as soon as possible.

Pretreatment for termites is done immediately before the concrete slab for your home is poured. Therefore your termite warranty will predate your Limited Warranty from Fulton Homes. This date can be found on your termite certificate. The subcontractor that treated your home initially will retreat the soil as necessary for five years from the pretreatment date.
