Birds commonly make their nests on roofs, but they can be damaging to your shingles, gutters and attic. Prevent small animals from damaging your roof by working with an experienced contractor like Tri-County Contracting 

In this post, get tips on how home exterior services providers prevent roof damage from small animals

Trim Surrounding Trees

Trees are beneficial to your home in various ways, but they can also serve as a bridge for small animals to gain access to your roof. Overhanging roof branches should be trimmed regularly to prevent animals from using these to jump onto your roof. 

Schedule Regular Roof Maintenance

Regular roof maintenance reveals possible damage done by small animals. Your roof replacement contractor will seal any visible entry points and gaps in your roof system. They would ensure your roof sheathing, gutters, chimneys, vents and other openings are sealed properly. Furthermore, roofers will inspect the soffits for any weaknesses.

Reattach and Reseal Shingles

Loose roof shingles serve as entry points for squirrels and raccoons. Hire roofers to reattach and reseal loosened or dislodged asphalt shingles. They can also replace missing asphalt shingles after heavy rain or storm.

Keep Your Trash Away

Small animals and critters feed on trash bins left open. Avoid attracting them by keeping your containers properly covered. Furthermore, keep your home clean by observing local trash pickup schedules.

Clean Your Gutters

Gutters filled with leaves and twigs give birds the resources to create their nests. Clean these areas regularly. Hire a roofer to clean your gutters efficiently.
