Monthly Roof Maintenance
First, we always recommend doing monthly roof maintenance checks which offer many benefits. One of those is to help prevent pests. The areas you need to always check first are the ones most vulnerable to degradation and as entry points. Eaves, soffits, chimneys, and certain materials need to be inspected visually with a magnifying optical device and also by a professional. Contractors will have expertise in identifying other clues that could lead to the discovery of pests trying to invade your home.
Roof inspectors are great at looking for common signs during a thorough roof inspection. They will look for damaged or chewed-off materials and points that need to be blocked off.
You should also prevent branches from growing too close to your roof. This also helps lessen the risk of damage by falling branches. We also recommend adding additional barriers around your home as well as making sure your roof gutters are always clear. During colder weather double check your attic and make sure that there are no holes, cracks, or areas where critters might try and enter from.
