Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels

Over recent years, solar panels and eco-friendly architectural materials have risen in popularity for homeowners. Whilst this might be beneficial for the environment, the introduction of solar panels has also proven to be popular with pigeons, who often use them for shelter or protection from the elements. This can be a tricky problem to solve for homeowners, struggling to deal with the mess and disruption a nesting pigeon can have on their roof. In extreme cases, the impact of pigeons can even cause a decrease in solar power, meaning they’re a nuisance in more ways than one. 

Pigeon proofing solar panels is a necessary and efficient way of keeping your solar panels safe, without impacting their overall effectiveness. Preventing pigeons and other rodents from nesting in the spaces between the panel and the roof of your home requires a few simple but specialised steps.

Pigeon Proof Solar Panel Installation

Initially removing any debris, mess or resident pigeons from the panels, we clear the area, making sure your solar panels are up to their initial standard. 

We then install our durable wire mesh, with weather-safe coating, to ensure long lasting and secure protection from invading or nesting pigeons. This is a cost-effective bird deterrent, which helps to keep your roof and solar panels safe, without disruption or damage. Coating all possible gaps or holes, the mesh creates a safe barrier from rodents.
