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.

3. Treatment

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.

“We had the best experience from beginning to end with ABC. From making the appointment to the inspection to the actual service. Mario was very pleasant and professional. He let us know he was on the way and was prompt to arrive. He was thorough and explained everything he was doing and also provided pictures of issues encountered. His expertise was reassuring and I would most definitely use their services again. I would highly recommend them to everyone.”

“Brandon has been cleaning our windows and gutters now for several years. He is very detailed oriented and we know exactly what the work will entail before it is started. I always look forward to seeing him when he comes. He is very personable, kind and interested in his clients and their families. He is not just providing a service, but building relationships, both with his clients and team members. You can tell he genuinely enjoys what he does and you know that your requested work will be completed with utmost care. I thoroughly trust his judgement and recommendations. Sometimes the work we thought was needed wasn’t necessary, while other times he noted things that did need attention. Either way he always provided great advice.”
