Animal Damage Repairs and Exclusion in North Georgia

Serious animal damage to the corner of the wooden soffit panel of a house.

When animals get into buildings, they do damage. That's one of the main reasons why people call us to remove wildlife from their property. The longer they're living in your home, the more damage they do, and the more costly it becomes to take care of the problem.

Trapping animals without repairing the problems that allowed them to get into your building in the first place, however, is a waste of time. Unless we seal animals out of your home, new animals will get in almost as quickly as the old animals are removed. That's why most animal-removal jobs also require animal damage repair and exclusion work ("animal-proofing")after the animals are trapped and removed.

Wildlife Exclusion

In the animal control profession, we call repairs or modifications made specifically to keep wild animals out of your home or property wildlife exclusion or animal-proofing. Doing animal exclusion right the first time around makes all the difference in preventing repeat visits by bats, birds, squirrels, raccoons, rodents, and other nuisance animals — not to mention the costly damage that these animals cause.

We provide a wide range of animal damage repair and animal-proofing services. No matter what kind of animal has moved into your attic, roof soffits, church steeple, crawl space, basement, barn, or shed, we can remove the animals and keep them out of your home or building.

Preventing Animals from Getting Into Your Home

Even if you don't presently have an animal problem, we can also help you keep animals out of your home by inspecting it and, if needed, animal-proofing it. This is something you may want to consider if you've just purchased or built a new home: It's a lot easier (and less expensive) to keep bats, rats, raccoons, squirrels, and other nuisance animals from getting into your home in the first place than it is to clean up the mess and fix the damage once they've already gotten in.

Why Choose Rid-A-Critter to Repair Animal Damage?

A handyman painted right over this squirrel hole. Unbelievable.

First of all, you do have a choice. We'll never pressure you into using our wildlife damage repair and animal exclusion services. If you want, we'll simply point out the things that need to be fixed to prevent animals from getting into your home, and you can hire a local carpenter, roofer, or other tradesman to do the actual work. You can even do the work yourself if you like, like the owner of the house in the picture on the right did.

But you'll probably save money by hiring us to do the job right the first time around.

The fact is that most amateur animal exclusion work done by people who aren't wildlife control experts just isn't done right. Animal-proofing a home or other building requires an in-depth understanding of the biology, habits, and capabilities of wild animals. Even skilled carpenters often overlook openings that, from an animal's point of view, look like Interstate 75.

Improper or incomplete wildlife exclusion won't keep animals out of your home. It'll just give you a false sense of security, while leaving your home at risk for structural damage, fires from animals chewing through electrical wires, damage to sored items, and disease-causing parasites carried by wild animals.

Here are some more good reasons to choose Rid-A-Critter as your animal exclusion and damage repair company:

You may have become a customer of ours by chance, but you will continue to be our customer by choice because of our experience and expertise.

Whether you need to repair damage already by wildlife, or simply want to prevent animal damage from happening in the first place, please contact us for the best, highest-quality, fully warranted animal damage repairs and exclusion in the region.

Tail prints in the dust were the first clue of Norway rats that need to be removed from the crawl space of a house in Jasper, Georgia. Our technicians will use non-chemical pest control methods to catch and remove the rats and exclude them from the house.
