Roofing inspection

These little guys are fun to watch dart through the trees with acrobatic ease but the damage that they are capable of inflicting on your roof can have long term consequences to say the least. Your nice warm attic makes a much nicer home than that hole or nest in a tree and squirrels, like racoons, are the masters of finding a way in. If that entry point isn’t readily accessible they are glad to create one even if it compromises the integrity of your roof or siding. Another very common issue related to squirrels in particular is their desire to chew on your tasty lead pipe jacks….I know, you would think that the lead would kill them but apparently the zinc is a needed supplement in a squirrel’s diet and the gnawing helps to wear down their ever growing teeth. So enjoy the show as they tight rope the power lines and trapeze from the bird feeders but beware of what other activities that the squirrels may be participating in when you’re not watching.

Discount Roofing replaces dozens of pipe jacks every year from varmint damage alone. Because those pipe penetrations through the roof exist to ventilate plumbing items such as toilets, sinks, showers, tubs or washing machines the continuation of that pipe is typically straight down within a wall so most homeowners only realize that the leak issue exists when a roof inspection is performed or when termites are discovered due to the hidden drip onto the bottom wall plate over an extended period of time.

Call Discount Roofing 936-756-1170 today for an inspection. The peace of mind is worth the call.


One roof is not like another. Having a QUALITY minded and reputable company install your roof can mean more than the quality of product installed where longevity is concerned. Many of the roofs that we replace in a normal year are due to poor installation of the prior roofing contractor. Choose a local company that you can trust. Ask for references of prior jobs completed in your area and remember that a warranty is only as good as the company that backs it up. Hope everyone is having a terrific Summer. ~ERIC~
