Hey, what was that tap tap tapping on my house? Yeah, I think I let this one happen. Even while I was home it did not occur to me that the birds could drill a hole right through the siding into the inside cavity of the house. I thought they were just eating bugs from the side of the house?
I was truly surprised and depressed to find three big holes in the polyiso foam siding with huge bird messes inside. I pulled out the insulation and patched the holes from the outside with eternabond roofing tape, but I’ll have to redo the foam insulation somehow from the inside and tape over it. I’m wondering if we should replace all the cedar siding with something that is bird impermeable.
