Over time, exposure to the elements and damage created by nesting animals can rob your home’s eaves (the overhanging edges of the roof) of their attractive appearance and structural strength. Fortunately, repairing rotten or weathered eaves is a relatively simple project that you can do yourself without ever having to climb onto your roof. Start by prying away the bottom and sides of the old eaves and cutting new materials to match. Apply a resilient weatherproof coating to the new pieces, then secure them using stainless steel nails. Finish by sealing up cracks and crevices with caulk to keep water, squirrels, insects, and other destructive intruders out for good.
