Birds on top of roof systems are a common occurrence. Any slight surface imperfection caused by birds is very easily identified on SPF roofs, while these same damaged areas might not be so apparent with conventional roofing systems. In most cases, the peck will not cause a leak and can easily be repaired as part of routine maintenance or roof inspections. If necessary, a simple reseal of the bird peck with a sealant (compatible with the roof coating) will repair the spot. In recent years, the use of roofing granules embedded in the top layer of elastomeric coatings has brought about greater resistance to bird damage and even “bird damage” types of roofing warranties from several industry suppliers.
