Damages

 

Below you can see how rodents can damage, wreck havoc, and contamination is most certain to happen. Don’t let these damages happen to your home costing you thousands by not properly handling rodent activity, or families breathing in risking havoc on your immune systems or health.

Below you can see pictures of how improper workmanship can cause issues not only aesthetically, but causing issues with allowing rodents back inside.

Soffit Strip Vents

 

The soffit vents purpose is just that to ventilate the attic. With stock vents they are anything but rodent proof. Stock vents are aluminum, or plastic and attached by staples or small nails. Rodents can push in the weak spots like overlap, or weak areas where staples or nails have came loose, on the ends they can easily chew into this area gaining access to the soffit and eventually the attic. Ours has a lip they can’t push into, thick galvanized steel, screwed in so gives extra reinforcement, and color to match so it is Aesthetically pleasing.

Insulation

 

In attics, basements, or crawl spaces rodents can use this as nesting and a place to urinate and Defecate into. When this happens depending on animal and contamination this needs to be removed to keep the family safe from contamination. This is the type of stuff we handle, we remove old insulation, vacuum up old feces, and disinfect and deodorize before reinstallation. We ensure our customers and families stay safe and healthier from these types of issues with removal of rodent contamination.

Gables

 

This is a common place for bats. 90% of our calls come from this area with them. As you can see the guano or feces can overtake your attic if the bug screen on the back of the gable is ripped. If the gable screen is not torn, the gables can fill up and fall out on the ground for all to see or pets to get into.  Bats is one of the most dangerous to our respiratory systems and can wreck havoc on our immune systems. We come in and remove the bats humanly, remove all guano, disinfect and deodorize, then seal to ensure no way of reentry. If the insulation is damaged we can quote to remove and replace this as well. Sometimes we can all get lucky and this step isn’t needed if the bug screen hasn’t been torn or gained access inside.

 

Crawls Space Vents

With crawl space vent replacement, this can be more so a luxury item and keep our home owners from opening and closing these manually. It’s an upgrade over the old style manual vents, they work by closing off at a certain temp and opening up at a certain temp. So it Takes the guess work out of this by keeping moist air out in the winter, and allows for ventilation during the summer to keep the crawl space from sweating both in which can cause mold issues.  Rodents can also gain access to these, it could be through chewing, vents loose, and more. We can install a new vent and cover, or keep existing vent and install a rodent proof cover either way we can keep rodents such as mice, or rats from entering in this area.

Ridge Vents

 

Metal or shingle roofs, rodents can access in this area. In most homes this is for ventilation purposes, with that said if a rodent can feel air coming out they know it could be a way in. So shingle roofs you can have warping, or they can chew the plastic to get inside. On shingle roofs we can install our product that still allows proper venting, and makes the vent rodent proof. With metal roofs the process is a bit different they are 99% of the time wide open at installation and only matter of time before rodents find this access point. 1% being they install foam blocks that are a temp block until they fall out or pulled out by rodents. We install a metal insert, color to match, breathable still, and attach with the same type screws that the metal roof is installed with. Ensuring no entry. With vaulted ceiling’s rodents can still gain access, you have a gap between the metal and the interior ceiling that makes a prime area for living undetected until it’s to late. We are able to remove them by finding the entry/exit point and install a one way door while ceiling all other accessible areas so when they go out to search for food they stay out.

Builders Gap

 

These are the most common for squirrels both flyers and grays, and roof rats. They can get access to the gutter line and either chew to make a access point in, or sometimes just crawl in due to builders error and the gap is big enough to not have to chew and easy access. We never use aluminum drip edge due to the lip they can chew on, and aluminum is to thin. We use a galvanized metal depending on areas sealed on what gauge thickness we use, the metal is Specifically bent with no lip and a flush fit so no chewing, we then attach with screws to the facia board to ensure unlike drip edge it’s sealed from the bottom as well with no way to lift up and slide in under the metal.

Returns

 

This area is where the soffits meet the main roof or dormers making the V shape. In the peak of the V rodents can chew in or slide in if the gap is big enough. Sometimes gutters installed in these areas allow water splatter and cause to wood to rot and weaken allowing a easier access for rodents when clawing and chewing these areas. We paint the metal as close as possible to the wood and reinforce this area to ensure no way to re-enter after rodents are properly removed and trapped from this entry area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to schedule an in-person inspection and quotation?
Each house is different in determining where the problem is. Once problem area is established, we will provide the solution and quotation. Even if your neighbor’s house was built by the same contractor and has the same layout, the openings and entry ways are not always the same, and the amount of work needed to be done will be determined by what is found on the free face-to-face inspection. We pride ourselves in long-term solutions.
When "Sealing" the ridge vents or metal ridge caps will my attic be able to breathe still?

Yes, both metal and shingle way of saying seal means to seal the rodents out of your home. Both our products for each one has small holes that still allow air to pass through and don't jeopardize anything involving venting.

When sealing the ridge bent, can it cause leaks because your using screws to hold the material down?

No, the screws used is the same screws but longer than the metal roof screws. It has a rubber washer with a metal washer over top. When the rubber washer gets pressure it starts to expand covering the holes. The metal washer protects but covering the rubber to not allow weathering to happen. We also add sealant to each screw to ensure proper seal from water.

Why do other companies say they can spot “seal a home” and others like yourselves say “full seal is best”?
The reason is simple, homes are never going to have just one open spot for a rodent to gain access through. You have areas on the home that an untrained eye may not realize they can either squeeze into or get access by having an area they can chew to get inside. So it is always important to have the total home inspected, in case those areas are not spotted by an untrained eye.
