We bought our house 2 years ago and have recently noticed a problem with the tile roof: birds have built nests under the tile, especially in the valleys. Now (in the spring) we can hear baby birds chirping whenever we walk around outside or bang on the roof.
This is also causing leaks: bird nests are in the valley flashing, which is diverting water and making it come out of our soffits. No leaks in the house (yet).
The house was built in 2006 and has S tile. We have about 150 trees surrounding our property, hence a lot of birds. We have bird calls constantly going, plastic owls set up everywhere, and frequently blast an air horn outside.
We are in Idaho and while there are a handful of tile roof installers, we can’t seem to find anyone who offers tile roof MAINTENANCE. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?
