Wildlife Roof Damage Repair
Wildlife can quickly damage a roof and this often happens during the winter. Raccoons don’t have the goal of destroying your property, they are simply looking for a safe place to sleep where they can be warm. While looking for a new place to stay, raccoons and even squirrels can cause a lot of damage to your shingles, underlayment, vents, the roof deck and then they ultimately may make it into your attic. The damage can be extensive with large gaping holes extending into your home from the roof. Snow and rain can make it into your attic at this point and cause even more destruction. If you think that you have a problem with squirrels, raccoons or other small animals on your roof, call in a professional wildlife damage roof company quickly. The faster you get on top of this problem, the easier it will be to avoid further damage to your roof and the inside of your home.

Roof Replacement or Roof Repair?
When you have discovered that animals have damaged your roof, you may only need to repair your roof unless it is quite old. If you have an older roof, we may recommend a complete roof replacement in order to prevent this damage from occurring again. In most cases, however, a roof with wildlife damage only needs to be repaired. We will assess the situation for you and we’ll let you know what we recommend based on the extent of the destruction to the roof and whether it has caused any water damage.
Wildlife Roof Maintenance
The best thing you can do to ensure that your roof remains in good shape is to have it inspected every year for any signs of damage, and there are any problems, to get them fixed asap. If there are any bushes or trees that might be leading to your roof, get them trimmed back. Any chimneys that are not being used should be closed as should any pet doors. Loose or damaged shingles should be repaired or replaced and check your window screens to make sure that they are in good shape.
