Termimesh Termite Prevention for New Home Construction in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio is among the fastest-growing cities in the country. Termite colonies often exist on a property before homes are built, causing headaches for new construction. To protect your biggest investment, a physical, non-toxic permanent barrier can be installed during construction. If you are looking for termite-proof construction materials, ABC Home & Commercial Services can advise you on your options.

ABC specialists install a product called Termimesh, a proven barrier that prevents termites from entering a new structure and establishing a colony. The Termimesh System has over 170,000 installations and a 100% effective track record.

Termimesh is a finely-woven stainless-steel mesh that serves as a physical barrier. The US Forest Service determined that Termimesh is 100% effective as a barrier that termites can’t eat through. ABC specialists will ensure Termimesh is secured to everything protruding from the ground, including electrical and plumbing, prior to concrete being poured.

Once installed, the barrier is permanent.

If you have an inspection, we will send you a custom treatment plan and estimate afterward. Once we get your approval, we will schedule your treatment.

3. Treatment

We will come to your property and treat for pests in common hiding and nesting areas. Over time, you will start seeing less and less pest activity.

4. Prevention

While Termimesh prevents termites from being able to access your home through the foundation, you need to ensure there are no other entry points. ABC specialists can provide regular inspections to ensure termites don’t have new access points.

Nationally, the annual damages caused by termites exceeds $2 billion dollars, and termite damage in an average home can easily cost homeowners thousands of dollars to repair. Over time, termite damage can cause serious cosmetic or structural damage to a home, as well as the fixtures, fittings and floor coverings inside the home, all of which can reduce a home’s value.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are termites?

Termites are small insects that resemble ants both in size and habits. Like ants, termites live in large colonies and frequently build mounds or nests. They usually live in the soil and feed on dead plant material, including wood. Because termite colonies can be made up of anywhere from 500,000 to 5,000,000 individuals, it’s important to ensure they haven’t chosen your new home for their next meal.

How do termites enter a building?

Termites need only a fraction of an inch to invade your home, entering through small gaps that lead up from anything that is in direct contact with the ground underneath. They can enter through foundation cracks, gaps between pipes (plumbing & electrical) and the foundation, and other small openings.

“I am very satisfied with the service provided. The worker texted to let me know they would arrive in 30 minutes. They arrived on time. The uniforms made it easy to identify them as representatives of ABC. Both workers were polite and friendly. They did an excellent job cutting back my 30 foot red tips. All limbs and debris was removed and cleaned up. They took much care to protect the solar panels on top of the house. I would highly recommend them to friends and neighbors. Thank you Jake for assessing the need and providing the quote. Thank you Mark and Leo for your work!”
