These are some more pictures I have taken of raccoon damage in an attic I have been in recently. When raccoons cause damage they really cause damage! Not only are their feces dangerous, which carry the raccoon roundworm, but I believe the real damage lies in the money that is wasted on higher heating bills over the lifetime of the home if that attic is not restored.
You see, raccoons in their activities trample your insulation down until it is only working at a small percentage of what it was before they got in your attic. Lower R value = Higher heating bills.
The good news is that some homeowners insurance covers damage caused by raccoons. For the cost of your deductible you can get an attic that is fully restored and is more energy efficient than before the raccoons got in your attic, actually saving money in the long run. Your insurance doesn’t just repair attics but all of the damage caused by the raccoons; whether it is damage to your roof or soffit or fascia. It wouldn’t hurt to check with your insurance company to see if this is covered.
We do pest control, animal trapping and damage repair including repairs to your attic and replacing insulation. We are licensed, bonded, and insured. We work with insurance companies or homeowners who wish to pay out of pocket.
