The average squirrel claim can cost around £3,000, mainly due to chewing through pipes, cables, decking and fascia boards. The pest can also move roof tiles, make a home within the loft, come down the chimney, or slide down guttering and cause damage.
In one case, a claim cost £30,000 and required the customer to move into temporary accommodation due to damage of the roof timbers and underfelt, before gnawing through the master bedroom ceiling covered in artex and containing asbestos.
