Termimesh is a high-quality stainless steel mesh used to block termites from entering homes through commonly-used access points, and has a track record of being 100% effective. It was developed by a company in Australia, where it has been in use for over twenty years.
According to the company, more than 350,000 Australian homes use Termimesh. After introducing it in Japan and Singapore, the company brought it to the United States, where it is in use in several states, including Florida, Hawaii, and Texas.
The mesh material prevents termites from entering through various points in and around a slab foundation. Termites only need an opening 1/64th of an inch wide to gain access to the interior of your home, and once they are there, they can be difficult to remove.
Termites have the ability to break down cellulose, which is rare in the animal kingdom. Cellulose is a major component of trees and other plants, particularly wood. In nature, this ability is mostly beneficial, but in people’s homes, it causes around $2 billion in damages per year in the U.S.
Termites cannot break through Termimesh’s stainless steel material. They cannot chew through it, and the holes in the mesh are too small for them to squeeze through. This keeps them outside of your home where they belong.
Termimesh requires a one-time installation during home construction. Our specialists will identify likely access points in your new home and install Termimesh in those areas.
The mesh is flexible, and can be shaped to fit into all sorts of areas of your foundation. This includes cold joints in the concrete, control and expansion joints, wall junctions, and areas where pipes pass through the concrete.
Yes. Termimesh is a non-chemical, steel mesh barrier that will not come into contact with your family or pets. It will prevent termites while having no adverse effect on your loved ones.
Termimesh is made of high-grade stainless steel, which makes it very resistant to the elements and unlikely to need repair or replacement. It is also covered by an extensive manufacturer’s guarantee, and throughout the world it has a proven track record of 100% effectiveness.
We are happy to perform routine inspections of your home for termites or other wood eating pests. However, the Termimesh system is so effective you can rest easy knowing it’s there.
