Hogarth's Pest Control specializes in all types of industries, residential and commercial.
Have you ever experienced Asian Beetles, Yellow Jackets, Bats, Squirrels, or Mice entering your home during the spring and fall seasons? This may be due to your ridge vent being compromised. Typically, within three years of your ridge vent being installed it will begin to warp in the spring or fall due to the temperature’s dropping at night and warming up during the day.
This can cause the nails to pop, creating a perfect entrance for the creatures previously listed. Ridge-Guard is our proven solution to this problem. Ridge-Guard is a metal cover that is installed over the plastic venting of the ridge vent and screwed into the roof. Ridge-Guard will not prevent your home from venting properly, it is just a reinforcement that cannot be chewed or gnawed through.
In certain situations with animals like flying squirrels or rats, there is a metal seal that will cover the top of the ridge vent as well so they can not chew the the shingles. Hogarth’s can install this on any asphalt roof no matter the pitch, without the extra cost of a man lift.
We have a special roof access system in which we can access the roof safely and effectively with the use of ropes and harnesses. There is no need to wait for a problem to occur before you have this installed. Most of the time you can see the popping of the ridge vent from the ground without even having to get on the roof.
