Need help locating this! (Vinyl Mesh)


I've been searching the internet endlessly (or so it seems) for a high quality vinyl mesh. I use it in a project, and need a lot of it. I've been using Gutter Guard (a product by amerimax), but their product has become extremely inconsistent, and cheap. Prior to them changing their product, it was PERFECT for what I needed. Here is a picture of their same product, just two different batches:



I need a black vinyl mesh that is very similar to mesh #1 in the picture. Does anyone know of a place that I can get it? Mesh #2 is too cheap, and can't be used for my project.

Thanks for any help!

Try writing to, or emailing, Amerimax. Maybe they have 2 manufacturers for their mesh and can tell you where to buy the one you need. Or maybe they sell your sample #1 at one of the big box stores and #2 at a different chain of stores. It can't hurt to ask them.

They were all purchased at the same Lowe's, and some are even brown. But contacting Amerimax directly may not be a bad idea. I will do that while I continue to look! Thanks so much for that idea.

Look at vinyl poultry fencing. Looks almost the same. Probably cheaper too.

We are getting closer! lol. I guess I forgot to list the dimensions of the holes. They are each only 1/2" wide. Poultry fencing seems to have 1" holes. But yes, very similar. I'm going to keep looking in that direction. Thanks!

Look in the ceramic tile/flooring department of any home center. Several companies offer that product to be used in conjunction with Self Leveling Compounds.

Mapei International has one, Laticrete International has one, Custom Building Products has one, there are several others.

Well, I got my hands on this, and there are just too many issues with it for what I need it for. Does anyone else have any suggestions?

Maybe if we knew what you are using it for we could be a better help to you.
Might want to try a supplier for stucco products. They have some neat things to work with.

I saw something similar at a restaurant supply company.

Link provided just as an example.

Have you tried McMaster-Carr?

They have vinyl, plastic, poly, neoprene mesh in many different size configurations and thicknesses.

I found the a polyethylene mesh (black) with your dimensions in stock in 4' widths and up to 50 linear ft.
