As we inspected we saw a potential intrusion area - the ridge vent. Ridge vents allows damp, warm air to escape from the attic, but also are susceptible to nuisance wildlife invasions. To solve this, we installed a RIDGE-GUARD®.
A RIDGE-GUARD® is a system for guarding against animal entry at the roof ridge. It secures and reinforces the ridge vent shingles to prevent bats, raccoons, or squirrels from invading the home.
We noticed the attic fan wasn't covered, so we installed an attic fan cover. This fan cover is made from heavy duty, 18 Gauge expanded galvanized metal mesh that won't rust and that the nuisance wildlife cannot chew through.
Now with the RIDGE-GUARD® and the attic fan in place, the home is no longer susceptible to any nuisance wildlife intrusions.
A new homeowner in Holmdel, NJ was concerned that raccoons, bats, and squirrels could invade his home through his attic fan and ridge vent, so he contacted Cowleys for help and we were sent out to inspect and treat.
