As homeowners, one of our top priorities is to maintain a safe and comfortable living environment for ourselves and our families. Unfortunately, pests often have different plans, seeking entry into our homes through various openings. The following explains just how Ridge Guard can play a crucial role in safeguarding your home from unwanted critters:

Understanding Pest Exclusion

Pest exclusion is the practice of preventing pests from entering your home by sealing off potential entry points. It’s a proactive approach that focuses on creating a physical barrier that pests can’t breach. This method not only helps prevent infestations but also reduces the need for frequent pesticide applications, making it an environmentally friendly choice.

What is Ridge Guard?

Ridge Guard is a revolutionary pest exclusion system designed to fortify your home’s defense against pests. It’s specifically crafted to address a common yet often overlooked entry point for pests — the roof ridge. The roof ridge is the highest point where two roof slopes meet, forming a vulnerable seam that pests can exploit to gain access to your attic and interior spaces. Ridge Guard acts as a shield that covers this seam, effectively blocking pests’ path.

How Ridge Guard Works

Ridge Guard is made from durable materials that are weather-resistant and designed to withstand the elements. Its innovative design allows for seamless integration with your existing roofing structure. Here’s how it works:

Seals Openings: Ridge Guard covers the gap along the roof ridge, sealing off openings that pests might use to enter your home. This prevents pests like rodents, birds, and insects from finding their way indoors.

Maintains Ventilation: Proper ventilation is crucial for a healthy home. Ridge Guard is designed to allow for adequate airflow while still providing a secure barrier against pests. This ensures that your attic remains well-ventilated and moisture-free.

Deters Pests: The presence of Ridge Guard sends a clear message to pests that your home is off-limits. Without easy access, pests are less likely to attempt entry, reducing the risk of infestations.
