“Termite” Terry’s Hot Tip:

Ask them,


Fumigation estimates can vary wildly. Why? There are a number of reasons. Some companies have big overheads, others have large advertising budgets, some are investor owned, etc. But, another big reason for differences in fumigation estimates is because of inaccurate measurements of your home or building. And, let me tell you that I see this a lot in our business:

Recently, I did a home where I carefully measured the outside and came up figure of how large the home was. But, I noticed that the home had a raised foundation, so before I did my final calculations, I knew that I had better go under the house and check it out. The area under this home was dug out deep below the prevailing exterior grade and it had a large basement. This one story home was almost like a two story home with the first story placed underground! This added a lot of cubic volume to my original figure and since our estimates are based on cubic volume, our price was now going to be a lot higher.

The owner saw my price and decided to get a second estimate. Now, I wasn’t there to see the other guy do his estimate, but I really don’t believe he looked under the house. His estimate was so much lower than mine – IT WOULD NOT HAVE EVEN COVERED THE COST OF THE JOB! (To fumigate that job the right way and use the amount of gas needed to get rid of all the termites, the estimator would have to pay the subcontractor money out of his own pocket to make up the difference).

The owner hired the lower priced guy. The subcontractor that performed the fumigation probably didn’t go under the house, either. If he had, he would have called the estimator and told him that they couldn’t do the job for that low price. That’s why I believe the owner got a “half-job”.

So, the termites may have been annoyed and they maybe even came down with a headache for a day, but I’ll bet you that those termites are back eating his house away – 24 hours a day!

How can you keep this from happening to you? All you need to do is to ask your estimator, “How many cubic feet did you estimate my home to be?”

To calculate the cubic volume of a home, we multiply the length of the house times the width of the house times the average height of the house. So, if your home is 60ft long, 30ft deep and has an average height of 11 ft, your home would be a total of 19,800 cubic feet. NOTE: You can’t base your figures on your home’s square footage of living area. Our measurements must also include eave overhangs, attached patio covers, attached garages, etc.

When I do my fumigation estimates, I want to make sure you know how large your home is so that you’ll know what you’re getting for your hard earned dollar! In fact, if you want to watch me while I measure your home, that’s even better! If you still want to get another bid, that’s O.K.! All I ask is that you not tell the other company how large we measured your home to be. Let them give you their own numbers and then you can really compare prices.
