What Pests Can Damage My Roof?

Although living in an area that is rich with wildlife is a great thing, it can be a problem if these animals do damage to your property. These animals will most often find their way into your home through your roof.

  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Squirrels
  • Termites
  • Bats
  • Bees
  • Carpenter ants

What damage can be done?

These pests can cause damage to your home’s exterior by chewing through your roof or attacking moldy areas. Pests living on your roof can cause damage to your home and make it vulnerable to an infestation. To ensure your home is free from pests or rodents, call an exterminator.

How to Fix and Prevent Pest Damage

It is important to remove any trees from your roof to avoid pest damage. This will keep your roof from becoming a breeding ground for insects by preventing shade and moisture from forming mold and moss. A professional roofing company can inspect your roof regularly to make sure any repairs are done quickly. This will make sure that your roof is free from any holes or leaks that could allow animals to enter your home.
