Over Fascia Vents can be damaged by squirrels

Houses, where do they come from? Builders. Carpenters. Roofers and drywallers. Concrete Experts and a whole ton of elbow grease. The job of building a house is so absolutely enormous that most laymen cannot even comprehend the extent of engineering that goes into building a house. And this is amplified by the genius of the Fascia Vent. The vent continues up through the facia into the wood the roof is made from. About one foot up there is a gap in the wood that allows air to pass into the attic. This and not the actual vent is what the squirrel will attack. With a few chews they can get into your attic and getting them out is a very big procedure.
