Roof Damage from Birds
Bird droppings are toxic and highly acidic. They can damage many surfaces and cause corrosion on materials like metal, rubber and even your shingles. This kind of damage can take years off of the life of your roof. Not to mention leaks and holes that create entry points for other wild animals or pests to enter your building.
Damage from birds on your roof can also be a result of nesting. There are many cozy areas for birds to build nests on your roof. Areas near dormers or gutters are particularly popular areas. They can also be drawn to the gutters for building nests which can cause damage to the gutters and not allow for water to drain properly. This can be a problem for businesses as well. Many buildings have HVAC systems on the roof that can be damaged or affected by the droppings. Solar panels and air vents are at risk as well.
