Siding Repair

Wildlife Siding Damage

Vinyl and Wooden Siding on Austin Home

Animal damage to your home can manifest in many different forms, including missing roof shingles or tiles, missing vents or holes in siding. Holes in your Austin home's siding can be aesthetically displeasing and negatively impact your energy effectiveness, leading to higher energy costs. Siding damage can also invite insects, if they weren't already there to begin with.

Which Animals are to Blame?

Common culprits of siding damage include birds, rodentssquirrels & raccoons. Wooden siding is particularly at risk of damage.

  • Like all wildlife critters, rodents will often be in search of warm and comfortable areas for nesting upon cooler weather or gestating period. They will take advantage of small cracks in your home's siding—did you know smaller rodents like mice can reportedly get into holes as small as 1/4"?
  • Squirrels are skilled climbers and often dig their claws into your siding to gain traction and climb to your roof. Squirrels are also rabid chewers, gnawing on wooden siding to keep their teeth trimmed.
  • Birds like woodpeckers peck as a social activity but it can be extremely damaging to your siding if it is made of wood. Other birds like sparrows are infamous for nesting inside siding. 
  • Raccoons climb to your roof the same way squirrels do and can tear and rip shingles, vents, and soffits. 

Vinyl siding is generally safer from animal & insect damage than wooden siding, but vinyl can still be compromised.

Project: Raccoon Removal
Heard noises in the wall of my bedroom, a scratching sound I was worried that I might have a rat issue. I called a few local companies in Austin. Wildlife X Team showed up and we soon discovered it was actually baby raccoons in the wall. They successfully removed them in a humane way. I would recommend the whole team; they were all professional and on time. My house is rodent-free and I have a one-year warranty I definitely would recommend them for wildlife services. Thanks, X Team.
