Woodpecker Stucco Damage

Could my home be affected by woodpecker damage?

Who Is Affected By Woodpecker Damage?

While the degree of woodpecker damage is unknown and undocumented. The cost of repairing woodpecker damage to properties in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario it has been estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. A survey of woodpecker damage to dwellings found that each incidence cost an average of $300. Even in regions where woodpeckers appear to have plenty of natural alternatives to buildings, such devastation can be substantial in suburban and woodland settings. AMP Concept inspectors will fix any damage and help relocate your feathery friend.

HOW DOES EIFS BIRD DAMAGE APPEAR?

EIFS is made up of several layers, the most common of which are:

  • The substrate is protected by a water-resistant layer.
  • Between the WRB and the insulating board, there is a drainage plane.
  • Insulation board, which is commonly formed of expanded polystyrene and adheres to the substrate.
  • Mesh made of glass fibres that is inserted in the base coat
  • A weather barrier is created by applying a water-resistant base layer over the insulation.
  • Colorfast and crack-resistant acrylic copolymer is used as a finishing coat.

When a woodpecker or flicker chews a hole in the EIFS siding, the external finishing layers are exposed to the outdoors. The mesh and polystyrene foam are usually visible; depending on the depth of the hole formed, the substrate may also be visible (often plywood or OSB).

Woodpeckers prefer to damage EIFS wrapped structures in the eaves, trim, and other isolated, shady spots, while the damage can occur anywhere on the EIFS siding.

IS THERE A RISK OF BIRD DAMAGE ON MY PROPERTY?

A building’s susceptibility to woodpecker or flicker damage is determined by a variety of variables. Woodpeckers and flickers may be found in almost every inhabited area in North America. Several species of woodpeckers or flickers may be found across the eastern United States and Canada, as well as in the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, and the northern and forested portions of the Canadian prairies. Birds are being discovered in new locations as conditions across North America continue to shift.
