Birds, squirrels, mice and bats might be small, but they can cause extensive problems to your roof. These are only some of the many creatures that may be attracted to your property. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to deter these critters from your home.

Roof Damage From Animals

A trusted roofing contractor gives tips to avoid roof damage from animals.

Schedule Routine Roof Maintenance

Regular maintenance can contribute to a longer-lasting roof and prevent animals from entering your home. Usually, these creatures gain access to your interior through gutters, vents and chimneys. Routine maintenance will help you find and deal with areas where animals could potentially enter.

Address Roofing Issues

Neglected roofs are common targets for animals. They can easily tear off loose shingles or find their way inside your home through gaps and cracks on the roof. Compromised shingles must be repaired or resealed. After a weather event, get a professional inspection from a reputable company even if your roof looks fine from the ground. Some signs of damage are not obvious until leaks occur or you have unwanted guests in your attic. At Kingdom Roofing, you can count on us for superior roof repair services.

Keep Tree Branches Trimmed

Animals can use overgrown branches to help them access your roof. Trimming branches from nearby trees can keep these creatures away from your property. This also helps minimize debris on your roof and gutters that could attract pests. Another benefit of trimming trees is it reduces the likelihood of damage caused by windborne debris during extreme weather events.
