 Tile Roof Rodent Problems

Open Perimeter Tile Roof

Tile roof buildings are complicated by the fact that rodents can slip under the tiles. Once inside this tile space, animals can enter the attic by chewing holes through the actual roof or by passing through normal gaps in the roof where vents pass through. This is not an easy path for animal entry. But if its not addressed, the building will remain vulnerable. Besides the building perimeter, other places animals can get underneath the tiles include the roof peaks or seams and the mini-perimeters surrounding vents.

Trap Maintenance

In buildings where the tile roof is not sealed, rodents traps should permanently stay in the attic. If the traps stay, then any animals that enter in the future will be caught before a true infestation can begin. The downside of this is that someone will need to follow-up on trap activity by monitoring the attic.

Method for Sealing Roof

Wildlife Patrol permanently secures tile roofs by drilling steel hardware cloth over every gap. This process is performed tile by tile around the building. The steel screen does not change roof function at all - water drainage and ventilation is unchanged.

Tile roofs create a difficult challenge based on not seeing the actual roof the way one does with a shingle rooftop.  Tiles are essentially an ornamental rooftop covering which creates a space between the tile layer and the real roof.  This space can be entered at any openings around the perimeter, around vent or chimney perimeters, and along the valleys of the roof where 2 hips meet.  Animals underneath the tiles are not necessarily inside the attic, but the only way to stop attic entry is to stop them from entering this space.  Once rats, squirrels, mice, or bats are underneath the tiles, they enter the attic either through small gaps in the real roof where vents and plumbing stacks go through the real roof  (openings allowing these structures to pass through, are often larger than the structure themselves allowing rodents to get into the attic) or by chewing through the real roof which is always a possibility.  Sometimes these openings can be identified and sealed from inside the attic, but in order to stop the animals from creating new openings, the tile roof must be sealed.
