If you can get to them very early on, you may have a chance of getting them to move on without needing help. Once they have settled in, you'll likely need professional bird control help.

The cost for professional pigeon control & removal services can vary by a lot. In general terms, the longer the pigeons are living, nesting and/or roosting on your home or business, the harder it is to get rid of them. Which in turn will usually mean a higher cost. Most pigeon control companies will do a free inspection and provide a quote that spells out the work needed and the warranty.
As with most critters, pigeons don't like predators. Especially birds of prey. There are also some strong odors that pigeons do not like such as pepper spray and cinnamon. Pigeons also do not like freezing temperatures, though they weather them as well as most animals.
The pigeons that you see in your neighborhood and on your roof are feral, meaning they are descendants of domesticated birds. For centuries humans have utilized and trained pigeons homing pigeons. This training taught them to place an extremely high value on their home. As a result, pigeons become more and more committed to home the longer they are there.
Vinegar may be effective as a pigeon deterrent - if it's used before the pigeons become established. The trick will be in keeping a fresh application of vinegar on any surface pigeons want to roost or nest on. The application would likely need to be made almost daily to be effective, depending on where you are located and what the local weather is like.
