Critter Quitter Is The Answer!
Many people don’t realize that your plumbing vents (those little pipes that stick out of your roof) are the source for a host of problems with your home. From leaking vents that can cause thousands of dollars in damage over time, to stained roofs from oxidized lead running onto your shingles, to frogs, rats, and snakes ending up in your toilets, these all often originate from your plumbing vents.
Critter Quitter® is far more than a simple shield that protects the vent. Its patent pending design has an internal component that drops the rain water into the vent. This keeps the damaged portion of the vent dry and stops the leak. It also has a screen that stops frogs, rats, and other animals from entering the vent and ending up in your toilets or sinks.
Critter Quitters® are easy to install by either a home owner or professional, don’t require any special tools, and add a nice look to your roof. They come in two sizes that fit just about all vents, and we even offer an extra large custom vent shield for the rare 4 inch vent found on older homes.
So whether you have a new roof or an old one, when you buy Critter Quitters® you are buying piece of mind.
