In our part of the country virtually every home must be covered by a termite warranty. There are two main types: “retreat” warranties and “retreat and repair” warranties.

A retreat and repair warranty covers the retreating of the structure as well as the repair of all damage at no cost to the homeowner. The vast majority of our termite warranties are retreat and repair warranties.
