The entire SquirrelGard Team would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
We are so thankful for all of our customers!
The SquirrelGard Offices will be closed on Thursday November 28th and Friday November 29th in observance of the holiday. We will reopen on Monday December 2nd.
As Monday is Veterans’ Day, the entire SquirrelGard Team would like to thank all the veterans who have served our great country.
Happy Veterans’ Day!
We hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween this year!
A recent SquirrelGard customer introduced us to some impressive squirrel feats, but the most interesting was actually a non-destructive one! We found this article about Twiggy, the water-skiing squirrel and were amazed at what this little guy could do!
Now if we could only teach them to stop chewing on lead jacks!
Check out videos of Twiggy in the act on YouTube!
A recent article by Danny Frank in the Houston Chronicle discusses getting your home ready to sell. One of the most common things we find on home inspection reports from customers (and coincidentally also Frank’s first item on the list) is roof issues.
Squirrel damaged lead jacks is often an issue on the reports, and most inspectors will recommend replacing the lead jacks. The only problem with replacing the lead jacks and not replacing the entire roof is you then have different colored shingles on your roof.
This can really hurt your home’s curb appeal.
Thankfully, SquirrelGard can remedy your damaged lead jack flashing issues! By installing SquirrelGard, you can repair your lead plumbing vents without the unsightly look of mismatched shingles!

Happy Home Selling!
While perusing Outwitting Squirrels by Bill Adler Jr., we found some interesting squirrel facts that might be worth noting:
“The size of a squirrel’s litter is positively correlated with latitude. The warmer the climate, the greater the number of litters produced each year by squirrels.” -Chapter 3: Know the Enemy
For those of us that live in the south, that means more squirrels that could start eating your lead jacks to wear down their teeth. Which, in turn, means that you have a higher likelihood of roof damage from damaged lead pipe jack flashings!
Protect your home with SquirrelGard and rest assured that all those pesky squirrels will have to search elsewhere for something to chew on!

The fall football season is officially here! And with it, the promise of colder (and wetter!) days ahead. Now is the time to root for your favorite team, not worry about your leaking damaged lead jacks.
Make sure you can focus all of your attention on the big game by installing SquirrelGard on your damaged lead pipe jack flashings!
The entire SquirrelGard Team would like to wish you a Safe and Happy Labor Day!
