Hi, I’m Mike Dillon the owner of Critter Ridder of Austin.
There are many ways that animals can enter your home. The most common ways are through roof intersections or gable vents, perhaps a mushroom vent that doesn’t have a screen on it. Builders quite often are going so fast they miss some pretty obvious areas, and we are trained in identifying those areas and sealing them with the proper materials that’ll last, not only through weather, but any attempt at reentry.
The last thing you want to do is go up into your attic and get between a mother raccoon and her babies. Not only is she a little aggressive, but you would now have no floor to move on. It’s understandable that you’d want to be prepared before attempting this yourself. We’ve got the proper tools and materials to make sure that the animals can’t get past any work that might be done by a homeowner. When choosing the appropriate material to seal a gap, it’s important to pick something that is not only durable, but will also have curb appeal. One thing we focus on is making your house look better than it was before we touched it.
