Cost-saving “squirrel damage” repair solution


squirrelDamageSquirrels and other critters that may have included woodpeckers had damaged a fascia board on the corner of a house in Wheaton, IL. A squirrel-sized hole went clear through the board into the soffit. Instead of replacing the entire 30 foot piece of 3/4″ x 8″ cedar ($$) I suggested a small, aluminum-backed cedar “patch” with a built-in drip cap and flashing. The aluminum was bent, adhered and nailed to the board, the board was painted with the customer’s paint, and the repair was effective and inexpensive. 😀
