Attic/Soffit/Louver Vent Screen Guards

Many areas of your San Antonio home are appealing nesting areas and entry points to your home for wildlife; not the least of which is your roof and your roof vents. Wildlife critters that are commonly seen on rooflines, such as squirrels and raccoons, are quite mobile creatures and are adept climbers/fliers, which can make it difficult to keep them out of your home.

Make sure your home is protected by installing wildlife roof vent covers.

Attic, Soffit, & Louver Vent Screen Guards in San Antonio

Once the wild animal has been removed, only then can we proceed with our proven wildlife control process. We want to be sure your San Antonio home has been wildlife-proofed from top to bottom, and this includes your roof. We offer attic fan vent guards, roof vent guards, gable vent closures and gable vent repairs, and soffit vent repairs.

Attic Fan Vent Guards

Having appropriately-installed attic fan vent guards will help for more than just their intended use of ventilation—they also double as a method of wildlife control, effectively keeping squirrels and raccoons out. However, many animals (especially squirrels) have been known to get through aluminum, so be sure to install a sturdy vent guard like one made of steel mesh.

Roof Vent Guards

Critters like mice, and squirrels will try to get into your roof vents. If roof vents are not secured, squirrels can easily get into your home through them, but unfortunately, they sometimes die in the roof vents, which can cause unbearable odors that can be hard to locate the source of. Make sure critters don't get in—or die in—your vents by securing your roof vent with durable hardware cloth that is non-chewable.

Protect Your Attic with Screens

Screen mesh on the attic entry point can help avoid problems like rats creating nests in the attic. Most attics already have this installed, but in the event that the attic mesh screen has been compromised, we can install new screens. Avid chewers like squirrels will try to gain entry to your attic through this mesh, but heavy-duty screening will help keep them out. 

Keep Your Home Safe

Upon the removal and damage repair of the wild animal(s), Critter Control of San Antonio’s wildlife technicians will use species-specific knowledge to keep pest wildlife critters out. Our team can do it all with one single call!

Chimney Cap and Screen Installation

Protect Your San Antonio Home By Installing Chimney Caps

Raccoon Climbing Out of Chimney Vent on San Antonio RoofChimneys and fireplaces might seem like unlikely areas in which to find a wildlife animal, but they are pretty common animal entry points. Keeping your chimneys protected from the outside elements helps extend their life, but did you know it also doubles as wildlife prevention? After the removal of any unwanted animals, we will also repair damage and implement species-specific prevention techniques. Screening vents, installing chimney caps/screens and closing entry holes will all reduce the opportunity for future conflicts with other unwanted problem animals.

Chimney caps protect your fireplace flue from rain, leaves, debris, and animals. Whether you need a chimney cap repair or complete installation, we can help. Animals like raccoons won’t stand a chance after our technicians have installed chimney caps.

What animals get into your chimney through a damaged chimney cap?

If your San Antonio home has a damaged or missing chimney cap, your home is susceptible to not just raccoons. Other common wildlife to get into your chimney include:

These animals don't just stay in your chimney. They use it as an entry point to the rest of your home. If you're wondering, "how are rats getting in my attic?", or any other type of animal, it could be through your chimney cap. Squirrels, mice, and rats will come through your chimney to make nests in your walls and attic, bats will build their colonies in the walls of your home, and raccoons will have their babies in your chimney. 

Prevent any potential wildlife issues by having the professionals at Critter Control of San Antonio seal your home!

What’s The Best Type of Chimney Cap For Me?

Chimney caps come in several different materials, like metal (aluminum, copper & steel). If you have multiple flues (this means multiple potential entry points for animals), consider a multi-cap solution to cover all flues at once.

Chimney cap installation is actually simple, and our technicians can also inspect the rest of your home for entry points at the same time. Contact Critter Control of San Antonio today to protect your home!
