Squirrel Damage in the Attic

Squirrels can cause significant damage to attic insulation, as they are known to chew on electrical wires, ductwork, and other materials. Their constant gnawing can create holes in the insulation, causing heat to escape and increasing energy bills. Squirrels also have a tendency to tear apart and shred the insulation, leaving it in disarray and compromising its effectiveness as a thermal barrier. Additionally, squirrels often create nesting sites in attics, bringing in leaves, twigs, and other debris that can further damage the insulation. All these actions can result in significant damage to the insulation, making it less effective at controlling the temperature inside the house and potentially leading to a costly repair or replacement of the insulation. To prevent these issues, it is important to take steps to keep squirrels out of attics and address any problems with insulation as soon as they are discovered.

Squirrel Damage on the Roof

Squirrels can cause significant damage to roofs as they are known to gnaw and chew on shingles, fascia boards, and other roofing materials. Their constant chewing can create holes and weaken the structural integrity of the roof, making it more susceptible to water damage, leaks, and other types of damage. Squirrels may also create nesting sites in the roof, causing damage to insulation and ventilation systems, and potentially leading to increased energy costs. They can also cause damage to electrical systems and cables that run through the roof, creating a safety hazard. In some cases, squirrels may even chew through the roof itself, causing leaks and water damage to the interior of the building. To prevent these issues, it is important to take steps to keep squirrels out of the roof, such as installing screening and making sure there are no openings that provide access to the roof.
