Bat and Wildlife Proofing Your Home
Bat proofing and wildlife prevention is good to keep nuisance animals and attic pest out of your home. Wildlife proofing your home is essential when dealing with unwanted pest. Most wild animals are very territorial and will often come back to a home if the repairs not done right. We offer all types of repairs. Chimney caps, eves, gable vents, ridge vents, bathroom vent covers, caulking, screening, flashing, deck screening and more. We use caulking and roof sealant on all repairs. We never use spray foam for repairs! It looks awful and never last. The absolute only time for spray foam use is when controlling air flow and insulation purposes. Always used from inside out, never outside in. Below are some reasons for repairs:
Chimney Caps: Chimney caps ensure there will be no more raccoons, birds, or bats living in your fireplace.
Eave Repairs: Often times squirrels, birds or bats will enter your house through an eve area. Eves are areas where one roof line meets another roof line, creating a construction gap. Squirrels will get up under the gap and chew their way in. A bat will fold its body up and slide right in. Birds can make a nest inside the soffit blocking ventilation and also creates air born bacteria.
Gable Vents: Gable vents are vents that sit on the side of your house and provide ventilation. We often need to screen the top of these vents with galvanized hardware cloth. Bats, birds and squirrels are the most common animals entering these areas.
Ridge Vents: Ridge vents are vents that sit on top of the peak of your house allowing ventilation. Even if there is a fiberglass screen underneath the bats will sit under the vent cap causing the screen to deteriorate. Ridge should be nailed down tight to the roof line.
Bird Cages: Cages over dryer vents and bathroom vents can prevent birds from nesting in your flex pipe causing your exhaust systems not to work.
Attic Vent Cages: Cages over your attic and canned vents can prevent squirrels and raccoons from chewing through into your attic.
Flashing: Around chimneys and eves can prevent mice, squirrels, birds, bats and other wildlife from entering your attic and home. Flashing on bird feeder post can prevent raccoons and squirrels from eating your feed as they can not grip onto the post. Shiny metal flashing above door ways and on wood siding can deter bats from roosting and wood peckers from pecking holes.
Deck Fencing: We dig 18" barrier trench around decks and porches. Then we install galvanized hardware cloth, 1/8", 1/4", or 1/2" gage around the deck. Then we backfill all trench areas to keep animals from digging underneath. Especially groundhogs and skunks.
