Bird Stop/Eave Closure
Known as either a bird stop, eave closure or eave riser, this component of a tile roof is a code approved 26 gauge Galvanized or Aluminum metal that prevents intrusion under the tile by birds or other wildlife. It also provides proper rise for the eave course, or first row of tile, and is used to close the convex opening below the eave course of all profile tiles, such as Eagle’s Capistrano, Malibu or Flat profiles.
Consumers can choose from a standard eave metal or one with ventilated weep holes, which are small holes throughout the strip of metal. This feature helps promote air flow below the tile and allows for proper drainage.
Eagle offers eave closures in both galvanized and aluminum options in a variety of colors. The options available vary by region.
