RIDGE-GUARD® Ridge Vent Animal Exclusion

  • Price $975.00 EACH

The original Ridge-Guard is made of a durable 20 gauge expanded galvanneal steal that is roll formed and then powder coated. This product is designed to prevent any unwanted animal entry under the exposed edges of a roofs ridge vent. This area often fails to keep animals out due to gaps that form along the bottom edge. Once installed, the ridge vent is fully protected from entry and the product is virtually invisible.

Ridge-Guard® is a system for guarding against animal entry at the roof ridge.  With the advent of ridge-vents to protect shingles from over heating in the summer, and excess moisture build up in the attic in the winter due to heat loss, came the extra issues associated with a large vent opening across the entire ridge of the home.

#1) The importance of roof ridge ventilation:

Roof ridge ventilation is a necessity whenever a roof has asphalt shingling.  Without proper ventilation, asphalt shingles will be compromised prematurely due to excessive attic temperatures.  The shingles will warp and cause potential leaks and animal entrance points.

#2) The problem with plastic ridge-venting and other styles:

The plastic version of ridge venting starts warping and cracking with age.  Most of the other fiber style ridge vents are easy for critters such as squirrels and mice to chew or tear out allowing easy access for bats and birds to enter the attic as well.  Once in the attic many problems associated with feces, mites, and even the HVAC system of the home may occur.

#3) The old way to “fix” the problem:

Tearing of the ridge cap, removing the ridge vent, installing metal mesh, then installing new ridge vent and ridge cap.  And the problem could very well happen again with squirrels chewing holes, bats, mice or birds getting back under.

#4) The benefits of Ridge-Guard®:

  • A lot less time in labor and materials (opposed to tearing off existing ridge and reinstalling)
  • Don’t need to have extensive construction skills to install, if you are not afraid of ladders, and can run a screw gun you can install RIDGE-GUARD®
  • For most roofs about 50% saving, and a product to last as long as your roof.
  • Highly effective and barely visible from the ground.

Excellent product to pest-proof ridge vent
     

Ridge-guard was not difficult to install and it should perform quite well at preventing pests from entering through the vulnerable ridge vent. Our roof has thick dimensional shingles, which is not ideal, as it can leave gaps at the top of the Ridge-guard strips. We are pounding down the gaps with blocks of wood at the edge of each shingle to reduce the gap space - a bit laborious. The product is pricey, but it will be worth it if it keeps pests out. Face-screwing the strips into the shingles is a concern for possible leakage, but the provided screws are "self-sealing" and the manufacturer has not reported issues with leakage. To be on the safe side, we used a dab of roof caulk/sealant at each screw. ATS was great to deal with and they were running a shipping sale at the time. Received our package in just a few days. - Anonymous

Ridge guard goes on really easy and seems to protect well. I'm using it in AZ to cover failing edges on ridge vent due to hail damage and sun/heat damage. Good product and ATS is a good company to work with. - Jeff

We are very pleased with the product. It is quality material. My husband installed and found it to be very easy. He does have a recommendation to include installation instructions with the product. The product was delivered within 2 days of ordering for a very reasonable shipping charge. Overall we are very happy with the Ridge Guard product and Animal Traps and Supplies. - Alberta

premium product
     

I've tried other brands, but find Ridge Guard to be the best by far. Gaps are closed easily by using a rubber mallet. Ends are a breeze. Cuts install time in half. - Anonymous

After getting a profesional opinion that we had Bat(s) in our soffits/attic, I called ATS after hours on a Saturday hoping to leave a message for a callback.
Instead, my call was actually answered by a real person, who took my order for 160 ft of Ridgeline and immediately sent me email confirmation. The product arrived in Tuesday and I had it installed myself in 2 hours. Only challenging part was customizing (cutting and bending) for the ends of the ridge. Some simply caulk the ends. I chose to cover the ends with the Ridgequard screen.
My bat pro came back the next day, installed two extruders and two weeks later I have no bats.
Super high quality product. Simple screw down installation. ATS price of $500 included free delivery.
As a side note: my bat pros quote was $1700 for the product installed. I saved $1200 and installed it myself in two hours. - H. Johnson

Ridge Guard is amazing!
     

A super easy and quick product to install. Ridge guard is highly effective at keeping anything from penetrating the ridge vents and made out of quality material that will last much longer than the ridge vent itself. Customers love it and I love the product as well! - Ron Pope

Ridge guard and ATS review

Great product and I am always thrilled to speak and work with John. Thanks for all your help. - Daniel Sayers

Game changer
     

The Original! If you aren't using Ridge Guard to exclude lifting plastic ridge vents you are missing out. Gone is the oldd way of labor intensive ridge vent removal, screening and replacing ridge vent and cap shingles. Ridge Guard screws over existing ridge vents and protects plastic from chewing and keeps bats and flying squirrels from entering under lifting vents. Ridge Guard is made by wildlife control guys for wildlife control guys!
Yes...the product is expensive, but there is no other product that does what it does-install time is relatively short and the more you do the faster you will become. Ridge Guard has suggested pricing to help in selling the product.

Home use

The product showed up in the black tubes and the tubes have men broken and taped back together . There was no damage to the product itself but the fastening screws were no long in the tubes. All I had to do was go to the local metal mart and purchase some.

The ridge guard itself was easy to work with and very well manufactured. It surpassed my expectations of how it would install after watching the videos. I have all of my ridge vents covered and it looks amazing.

The only thing I could suggest is the packaging of the ridge vent everything else was wonderful.

This product does a great job. It is easy to mess it up, so make sure that you get certified through AAC before attempting to install. - Steve Waldner

A perfect solution and excellent quality

Ridge Guard does exactly what it is meant to do - keep those little critters from slipping under the gaps in your ridge vent. The quality of this product couldn’t be better with its strength and rigidity and powder coating. My house has 3 ridges totaling 270 feet and it was installed in less than 3 hours. I couldn’t be more pleased. - Gary
