Squirrel causing Sugar Land roof damage

Have You Spotted Critters On Your Sugar Land Roof?

In the suburbs, it's very common for small animals to make their way onto your roof at any given time during the year. Did you know that, although a critter scurrying across your trees and roof seems harmless, this can actually bring extensive damage to your roof? In this article, we will explain why critters are a valid cause for worry and what you can do to deter them and protect your Sugar Land roof.

Critters Moving Into Your Sugar Land Roof

Critters such as birds, squirrels, and other small animals are notorious for scurrying across Houston roofs. Unfortunately, when critters make their way onto your roof they can bring plenty of damage with them. This damage, if left unaddressed, may result in the need for extensive Sugar Land roof repairs or even a Sugar Land roof replacement. The following are tips we recommend to homeowners so they can be proactive in dealing with critters and the accompanying Sugar Land roof damage.

Take A Look In Your Attic

If you rarely go into your attic, critters can easily turn your attic into their shelter. It's a good idea to check all potential access points for evidence that a critter has moved in, but it's possible to miss some of the signs. If you want to be positive that critters live in your attic, we recommend you get a Sugar Land roof inspection by our expert roofing crew with over 40 years of experience. 

First, we’ll climb onto your roof and walk on it while checking for tracks or even chewing marks at potential access points. We may also take a look in your attic for similar signs. Most of the time, Sugar Land roof repairs are all you need in order to safeguard your roof and prevent critters from moving back in, so we will also offer an estimate and then complete the necessary Sugar Land roof repairs.
