Poorly-Installed Drip Edge Allowed Bats into an Attic in Hoschton, Georgia

The drip edge has crept away from the edge of the roof creating a gap that allowed bats into the attic of a Hoschton Georgia home.

Bat gap under the drip edge in Hoschton

The drip edge was just shoved under the shingles rather than being attached to the roof. Over time, it crept forward, creating a gap that allowed bats to get into the attic. Unfortunately, this is not at all uncommon.

On the bright side, there are only a few bats in the attic. It's a very new colony. That also explains the relative lack of staining at the entry gap. We'll still have to completely bat-proof the roof to keep bats out of this house in Hoschton, Georgia; but because it's a small colony that's being treated early on, the cleanup stage will be much easier.
