Squirrel roof damage is frustrating to find and treat. Unfortunately, it’s a common sight here in Charlotte, NC. What can homeowners do to take a stand against this threat? Here is what Southern Star Roofing wants you to know.
Install Drip Caps
Unlike other flashing, drip caps promote better water runoff. Better yet, it also prevents squirrels from ripping up tiles. As burrowers, these pests naturally like to dig, even on your roof. When they do, these critters will eventually end up in your attic.
If you have trees near your roof, squirrels have an access point. Even several inches away is close enough for them to jump over. Keeping plants trimmed away is like removing their ladder. It might not get rid of pests entirely, but it will help.
Clean Your Gutters
Like all creatures, squirrels need food and water. Clogged rain gutters offer them both, making them for ideal nesting. To keep squirrels away, it’s important to keep your rain gutters clean. Or you can hire us to handle it instead.
