Foundation Vent Repair
Protecting Your Home's Foundation
Many wildlife animals are avid burrowers and desperate to get into your home by any means necessary, even if means a potential home collapse for you! Animals can cause cracks in foundations when they dig and move the dirt surrounding your foundation, and they can also get in through broken or damaged foundation vents. These same animals can also enter your crawlspace through these cracks, like rodents.
Is My Foundation at Risk?
Willdife like moles, chipmunks, squirrels, voles, and rodents dig holes either for nesting or transporation (like mole tunnels). Opossums and skunks also dig under porches and decks. These opportunistic critters often target already-compromised foundations as they offer easier entry, but they will not hesitate to burrow under all foundations.
