Siding Repair

Siding Damage from Wildlife Behavior

Vinyl and Wooden Siding on San Antonio Home

Animal damage to your home can appear in many different forms, including missing roof shingles or tiles, missing vents or holes in siding. Holes in your San Antonio home's siding can be unpleasant to look at and even negatively impact your home's ability to heat and cool, leading to higher energy costs. Siding damage can also encourage secondary pests like insects, if they weren't already there.

Why is My Siding Damaged?

Common culprits of siding damage include birds, squirrels & raccoons. Unfortunately, wooden siding is particularly at risk of damage.

  • 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.
  • A major culprit when it comes to damaged siding and critters getting into your home is rodents. Holes in siding are not uncommon, especially if your siding is not maintained. Rodents can get into holes as small as 1/4" in diameter. Once you've identified the small cracks through which rodents can get in, we can seal them.

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

Project: Knowledgeable, Friendly & Great Follow-Up
We recently bought a home and have not been able to move in due to a horrible odor inside and under the home. We called Wildlife XTeam and Adam came as scheduled and removed a dead skunk from the crawl space of the home. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, took time to deodorizer the contaminated site and walked around the home and informed my husband on things we can do to prevent this from happening again and how we can keep other critters and bugs and spiders from coming onto our property and house. He also took the the time to call us the following day to see if our issue had been resolved. I highly recommend them should someone need an animal removed dead or alive.
