WHAT. A. WEEK.
Flying High doing roof line inspections looking for squirrels’ or any critters’ access points. You just don’t know until you know. Several clients did not know because they weren’t looking or because many subtle aspects of the roof line cannot be clearly seen from the ground. Upon up close inspection quarter sized or larger holes and crevices can be found. Many areas of a roof line are hidden in deep pockets and corners, too.
What lurks there? Well we found many places where squirrels had begun to excavate gnawing on the wood trim. Also found areas that were deeply recessed under the trim and allowed totally open access into the attic through the soffits.
For quick and easy fixes, that are out of view, we install a galvanized steel mesh. If the area is visible we suggest more comprehensive repairs that integrate materials like steel and high density sealants, followed by finishes that match the homes exterior.
Wow. All just to keep squirrels out? Yep! And mice, and birds, and bats. We get them out. We keep them out and make sure it looks good. Humanely. No one and nothing is harmed. Just call. We will make it so.
Most agree this is a good thing. This means a quiet attic. All your appliances, electric, phone doorbell and internet work because squirrels and their new pups are not gnawing your wires. You sleep soundly because your home is quiet. The possible sounds of squirrels scurrying around your attic are non existent.
(Oh. And DON’T even get me started about Woodpeckers pecking on siding to tear out beetles!!! Pleeeese!)
Your home is quiet and peaceful. Ahhhh. Tranquility.
If this isn’t the case, just call.
We’ll restore peace and tranquility.
