Wire mesh, made by welding or weaving steel wires together to form a pattern, is used in multiple industries such as construction, agriculture, filtration, the aerospace sector and more. However, it can also be used for simple purposes around the household, as they are versatile in operation. 3 such DIY applications of wire meshes will be addressed down below.
3 home improvement applications of wire meshes.
Depending on geography, seasonal invasion of pests such as rodents, birds, bees, insects and other critters can cause major problems in the household. To protect the property from such external factors, wire meshes can be fashioned as pest control barriers and placed at multiple points across the house, where these pests are most likely to enter. Furthermore, they can be also used as barriers in yards and gardens, where plants, fruits and small crops are often destroyed by these rodents.
Having exposed gutters can create major problems not just in the form of rats, snakes and pests, but also in the form of accumulated debris. Over time, leaves, sticks and other debris can accumulate and form a strange mulch in the gutter, thereby obstructing the flow of water. This can eventually lead to rotting of the roof or can even cause flooding. Therefore, it is essential to have gutter guards to keep out the pests and debris, which can be easily fashioned with wire meshes.
Chimney Caps And Fire Safety Screens
The embers from the fire in the chimney can cause fires outside if left unattended. To arrest their movement and to keep it within the chimney space, a device called a chimney cap is installed at the top of the roof, which is often made from wire meshes due to its low cost, robust nature, and easy installation. Wire meshes can be also used as a fire screen guard within the house to prevent the same adverse effects.
Although the list isn’t exhaustive by any means, these 3 utilitarian benefits of wire meshes make them an integral part of DIY home improvement projects.
