My new roof seems to not be rodent-proof


From the pix you have posted I see really no way for any rodent to enter.But they are very crafty little creatures.

Most of the time squirrels etc.enter soffit areas,gable vents and I had one that came down into my living room from my fireplace in my other house.Scared us pretty bad but I guess he wasn't having fun either.

Smaller rodents find a lower area to enter rather than the roof.(In most cases.)

I guess its like driving a certain brand of truck like,,Fords then making the switch to Mopar.Then wondering what took you so long.Hahahahaha

We've been running our valleys like the OP's pics, but we make them tight to the center of the valley tin. Been doing that for at least 10 years, no problems.
