After a long cold winter, (still going on in Quad Cities!) Spring is the right time to check for infestation in your roof. Some signs are obvious while some are not noticeable, but roof infestation must be taken care immediately otherwise you can see all squirrels, bats, rats, insects, and so on start living in your house.
Look out for signs
Rats and bats under the shingles or in the attic is a common problem. Animals like open spots. Any gap or opening in the fascia, soffit, cladding, siding, vents, windows, ridge, ridge vent, or uncapped chimneys make it easy for the animals to creep in. Any small opening must be taken care immediately otherwise it may lead to bigger damages.
Here are some signs of animal infestation in your home:
Act before it is late
Inspect your roof and seal any gaps or openings. Closing the chimney with a cap is a good idea. Seal the gaps in the excluding cladding or siding. Observe for animal behavior on your roof and electrical wires. Rats tend to chew the roof and wires. Trim all the surrounding trees and keep your roof out of reach. Check your attic for any visible damages or openings.
Animal infestation in the roofs must be addressed immediately. Spring is a good time to start the roof maintenance and prevent further damage or infections due to animal infestation in your roof. Call Olde Town Roofing today at 3097385550 if you suspect any animal infestation on your roof.
