Are Treated Timbers Really Safe From Termites?

The near-universal use of H2 blue, green or red framing timber in construction is now a time bomb for landfill in 20-40 years’ time. It cannot be composted nor recycled, and thus is sent to landfill. In an ideal world, buildings would be carefully deconstructed and every skerrick reused, but in the Land of Oz, where labourers are paid $55 per hour, and landfill rates are less than $200 per tonne that is just a pipe dream.

“We are elated to finally find a house after searching for over 5 months. Surety’s inspection on this property helped us to know what we should pay for it and that it was worth going for. Thanks so much for everything. We are absolutely just so impressed with your service, assistance and quality of reports and the time everyone has taken to work with us.”

Meaghan, Buyer, ACT

My whole experience was excellent. Customer service was the best we have had throughout whole build. Jacqui made the organisation easy. Both men who came to to inspections were knowledgeable- friendly and went the extra mile to help/ provide info. Each time I asked for information or clarity Surety were happy to help. The expertise of the inspectors has saved me thousands in picking up defects etc early.
I would recommend surety and will confidently use again.
