Is a different company likely to be willing to take over the warranty?
I'd like to hear of an instance where a termite warranty actually paid off.
TREATMENT is important, sure - but has a warranty claim ever been paid?
The way I read the brand X warranty, it leaves them all kinds of outs.
No. The second company doesn't know whether the first company did the
treatment correctly, and therefore wouldn't want the liability. Think
of it as trying to take your Ford to a Toyota dealer for warranty
I made claims three times. The first time, it was simply to remove
wood siding too close to the ground. Price: free (the company should
have done this during their initial treatment). The second time --
with a different company (the first company was exposed in the media as
never having actually treating homes, but only pretending to do so) --
there was no visible damage, so they re-treated for free. The third
time, there was damage they repaired for free and then re-treated the
area and up to 20 feet around it for free.

More times than not, no on a new company taking over a warranty. I
have taken over some warranties that other companies worked, but all
were only covered for retreatment rather than damage repair and had a
stipulation that if termites did show up within two years there would
be a cost for a spot treatment. $125 is the average cost of a
warranty so if you did find someone to take over the contract it might
not be much of a savings.
