The Spanish tile roof is a classic element of homes in California, inspired by time honored Spanish architectural design. Traditionally made with clay or, nowadays, concrete, tile roofing is durable and well-suited to buildings exposed to heat and rainfall, thanks to their distinctive curvature and interlocking, as well as thermal regulating nature.
When treated and maintained with care, Spanish tile roofs can outlast other forms of roofing, furthering it as being synonymous with visual elegance and longevity.
We are proud to share the story of how our team at Natural Science Exterminating had the honor of successfully treating a beautiful home with a Spanish tile roof in Mission Viejo.
Our job was to delicately balance structural preservation and pest removal. Time was of the essence, as any further termite damage would risk the integrity of everything surrounding and supporting the Spanish tile roof, not to mention the roof itself.
Termite Extermination For Spanish Tile Roofing
The tale of pests is one as old as time. Termites infest an enormous number of properties across the United States every year, resulting in billions of dollars of damage.
While tent fumigation is the most absolute method of eradicating termites, tenting was simply not an option here. Tile roofs, while long-lasting, can be fragile under certain conditions due to their weight. Tent fumigation is performed with a gaseous termiticide that can reach every nook and cranny within what is sealed within the tent. While necessary in certain severe infestations, Natural Science Exterminating considers tent fumigation as a last resort, equipped with expertise and prior experience in removing termites from homes with tile roofing.
Spot treatment is effective yet precise, removing termites from specifically planned areas of the property, rather than throughout its entirety.
At the heart of our pest management solutions is commitment to the safety and health of our clients as well as a deep appreciation for the craftsmanship and unique characteristics of their homes. We treat each beam, tile, and part of the home as meticulously as fine art.
A complete solution involves inspection, treatment, and prevention.
We conducted an inspection of the entire property to identify the infestation and property blueprint, including the tile roofing.
We successfully removed all termites from every corner of the property, including the roof, attic, garage, spot treating the infestation and its sources using specialized equipment and extension ladders to reach even the highest points.
Upon completing extermination, our final task was to preserve the home and its intrinsic historic beauty and heritage. We treated all exposed wood with BoraCare, a non-toxic, mineral salt based solution that prevents termites from creating damage by consuming wood for cellulose, their food source. BoraCare treatment lasts the life of the wood, preserving it to endure as long as the popularity and influence of Mediterranean style.
Alternatives To Tent Fumigation
Tent fumigation may be necessary in certain cases, but not all. Certain properties are not structurally suitable for tent fumigation due to limitations or restrictions. If an exterminator insists on tent fumigation, give Natural Science Exterminating a call first—we may be able to spot, treat or use natural solutions instead.
Natural Science Extermination has safely and successfully fumigated many properties for our clients. Tent fumigation and spot treatment are different techniques that are best suited for different types of properties and infestations.
