Spray-foam insulation is a good deterrent for rodents and pests and is included in all LifeStyle HealthSmart homes. Because of its synthetic material that hardens, it has superior sealing capabilities that block rodents’ ability to get inside and set up nests. Rats, for example, will not destroy cellulose or spray foam like they would other types of insulation. It is also important to note that spray foam is not a food source for rodents and pests, thus making it a further deterrent.
Eliminate Entry Points
To keep rodents and pests out of the homes we build, the LifeStyle construction team carefully observes and eliminates all points of entry. A good rule of thumb is that a crack, even a quarter-inch wide, is enough for a mouse to crawl inside. Generally, if you can fit a pencil into the crack, then a mouse can get through.
All openings of your LifeStyle home that cannot be fully sealed will be protected with caulking or screening where necessary.
As another layer of protection, LifeStyle Homes sprays for pests before we turnover keys to our homeowners. Complete termite protection with renewable warranty is also included in every LifeStyle home.
