Are Woodpeckers or Squirrels Destroying Your Home?


Most of us receive a lot of pleasure from watching birds and other animals in their natural environments. You may have a bird feeder in your yard that attracts both birds and squirrels that are hungry for a treat.

 

As much joy as you may receive from watching these beautiful creatures, it may quickly turn to wrath if the woodpeckers or squirrels destroy the siding on your home.

 

Fans of old cartoons know that woodpeckers cause damage by “drumming.” Woodpeckers may drum for a variety of reasons, but one of the common reasons is that they are looking for insects. If woodpeckers seem particularly interested in the exterior of your home, you may need to call an exterminator to see if that is the underlying problem.

 

Squirrels have been known to chew holes in the siding, joists, doors, and shingles in Kansas City homes. They can really cause havoc when they reach your home’s interior.

 

If you find yourself in this predicament, contact Integrity Roofing, Siding, and Windows and ask us how fiber cement siding can help.

 

Builder Magazine has voted James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding as the top siding product for the last nine years. It is an extremely durable siding and is designed to stand up against cracking, rotting, hail damage, and (you guessed it) other natural pests.

 

Even with this incredible durability, it is still considered a green and sustainable product.

 

The staff of Integrity would love to help you with your woodpecker (or squirrel) damaged home.
