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.

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 happy with the service provided by Mike. It has been 4 weeks since he worked on my irrigation system. System works very well and my grass and plants look happy.
