Emergency Roof Repair
Steve came and assessed the leaks in 2 of my bedrooms. He was very professional and I had an estimate within 20 minutes from when he left. It was going to rain the next day. They came out and repaired my roof the next morning. It rained for almost 5 days straight off and on. I don't see any additionall leaks. I am very happy with the work they did and would recommmend them to others. Thanks for helping me sleep well at night not having to worry about any more leaks.

Is the Use of Pigeon Spikes Really Necessary?

December 29, 2011 by - 1 Comments

pigeon spikesPigeon spikes are used to control the roosting of birds on your roof or any other area that they tend to flock. Ostensibly created as a deterrent, they have their pros and cons. It is always a good idea for matters concerning your roof that you call and consult with a professional roofer first. Have him come out and give you a free roof inspection first before you decide to install anything on your roof. If he is a local, he most likely will have experience in the best method to deter birds and avoid major repairs or even a roof replacement as a result.

Also known as bird control spikes and anti-roosting spikes, these devices are made to modify potential perching real estate into no-bird zones. Long spikes sprinkled across your ridge cap and barbed wire and bristle brush type spikes are all made to not harm the bird. Sharpened and electrified spikes have pretty much been outlawed in most regions because they not only can harm and even kill birds, they can also be a problem for roofers or other animals clambering up on the roof.

Simple though they sound as an inexpensive solution to keeping the mess away from you home, they actually require maintenance. After a while, feathers, leaves and twigs stick to them and not only become unsightly, they end up no longer being effective because now, the birds can sit on them comfortably.

There are other methods to keep birds and their feathers and toxic fecal matter away from your roof and patio. Ask your roofer about sound machines and lights that can be used in place of pigeon spikes.

I'm not sure of location but in southern areas it's not common to see pigeons in residential areas but you'll see them all the time in heavily populated areas such as grocery stores and spikes really do serve their purpose.

Steve and his staff at Roofer911 are exceptional. He was able to quickly identify the source of the water leakage into my townhouse and had his crew there to make the repairs same day. Everything about his operation is very professional and I highly recommend Roofer911 to any homeowner!
