Solar Panel Bird Proofing Argyll and Bute

Get rid of birds, pigeons or pests nesting under you solar panels with our solar edge protection bird proofing kit.


Solar Panel Bird Proofing Argyll and Bute

Solar panel bird proofing is when you have material fitted around the trims of solar panels that prevent birds from getting underneath and potentially nesting. 

Solar Panel Edge Protection Ltd are Scotland’s leading solar bird, pigeon and pest proofing service, providing a long lasting robust solution with a 10 year guarantee.

If the birds decide to nest under your panels, this is what causes them to linger around your solar panels and create lots of noise, disruption and mess.

When you find debris from bird nests scattered across your roof and garden, with droppings everywhere, it’s likely your roof and solar panels have been taken hostage by nesting birds, most likely pigeons. Solar panels offer heat and a safe harbour to the birds from weather and predators.

Each year, the damage caused by nesting to solar panels amounts in millions of pounds in Scotland alone. Your solar panels and PV system is under threat, so is your wiring, your roof’s drainage system, and most importantly, your health.

Let us help you maintain your solar panels and solar PV system by offering the best solar panel bird proofing solution available in the UK today. Clean solar panels means maximum solar yield and a much cleaner roof means your home looks far better.

Solar Panel Edge Protection Ltd are a team of experienced and vetted solar professionals, we have installed thousands of our 100% guaranteed solar edge bird proofing kits across Scotland including Argyll and Bute. We guarantee to stop birds nesting under your solar panels first time for the long term.

"After a few years of putting up with the early morning bird tap dancing on the roof , constant cleaning of the side path due to bird toilet habits and a few times scrambling on the roof myself to try solutions for the problem I took the plunge and looked for a pro company to solve the problem. I will be honest and didnt know anything about this company prior to the work and choosing them was just a search in local area. But i was not dissapointed , guys were polite , professional and tidy . The job looks great , birds have nearly all gone and as far as price goes (I have nothing to compare against so wont go into detail) I am more than happy for what I paid for the service I got . Wouldnt hesitate to recommend"

"This style of pigeon proofing is FAR superior to the standard wire proofing methods I've seen elsewhere, it actually blends into the panels and looks like it's part of the system! Very discreet. The workmen were polite, friendly and knew their stuff. They arrived on time and completed the job within the timescales given. We are really delighted with the job they did and we've already had very positive comments from friends and neighbours. I'd have no hesitation at all in recommending this company. Thanks guys!"

Mesh, Wire, Spikes and Other In-effective Bird Proofing

Solar Panel Edge Protection Ltd has been installing solar panel bird proofing for some time now and we started to loose count of the amount of jobs we have had to replace solar panel bird mesh, wire, spikes and other materials. 

Poor installation and the Scottish weather are the most common causes of failed bird proofing.

Let’s not forget the determination of birds to nest and protect their young, they will peck and do whatever it takes to dislodge these materials.

Don’t pay twice, get rid of birds first time with our solar edge protection bird proofing that comes with a full 10 year guarantee.

Don’t just take our word for it, see the feedback from our customers, with literally hundreds more from previous years that we unfortunately lost from our original Google listing.

Please note, we do install spikes to prevent birds perching on roofs and around panels. Spikes are effective in certain situations and in some cases to compliment other bird proofing in more severe cases.

Cheap & Ineffective Solar Panel Bird Proofing

The cheapest and least effective methods of solar panel bird proofing is chicken wire. It doesn’t last, the birds can still get through it often within a short space of time.

Although robust and made from galvanised steel, solar panel mesh looks terrible and often it won’t survive Scottish weather, especially the harsh winters.

Much like solar panel mesh, bird netting looks terrible and often it won’t survive Scottish weather conditions. Bird netting will also collect a huge amount of bird mess and nest debris.

The obvious flaw with stainless steel solar panel bird spikes is the small gaps. Bird spikes are very dangerous for the welfare of the pigeons, who will continue to make it their mission in life to get through the tiny gap, especially if they believe there is young left behind. Solar panel bird spikes are however an effective method to stop birds and pigeons perching on the corners of your roof.

Issues Caused By Birds Nesting Under Your Solar Panels

In the Scottish landscape, solar panels are a perfect site for roosting and nesting. Birds use the residual space for shelter and warmth, and you might end up living with an everyday nuisance. From the noise to damage, nesting is the root of many significant problems.

The scratchy noise over your head can drive even the calmest to distraction. With the bird infestation, your roof might sound like a battlefront amidst all the shrieking and cooing. Birds love to live in flocks, and there might be no end to the new birds joining in.

The accumulation of nesting material and dropping can create hotspots which are eventually going to lead to solar cell failure. Bird droppings are acidic, and heaps of it can expedite the corrosion of the Aluminum frame. Not only is your roof going to look nasty, but any contact with the droppings can also cause severe infections due to pathogens in it.

Nesting material and droppings can block your drainage system, creating weak spots, which eventually leads to leaks. Birds attract other pests including rodents and squirrels. These critters chew up the solar panel wiring, which can cause short circuits and rooftop fires.

We can help you clean up and inspect the panels along with the wiring for any damage. Our expert team will make sure that all the paneling components are in place before calling it a day. Contact us today to discuss the best suited solar panel bird proofing solutions for your property. Our team is glad to assist.
