Raccoons are notorious for finding opportunities, damaging and entering such areas to gain access to shelter. Mostly these areas are comfortable attic spaces. In Richmond Hill we had a home with an older plywood. In fact the roof was so bad that the technicians couldn’t walk on it. Thankfully the damage was in the soffit areas and reachable from the lower roof. The duration of stay for the raccoons is estimated to be 3 years. The longer raccoons stay in an attic the harder it is for them to leave the property and not return.
