Is there such a thing as Woodpecker-Proof Siding?

Table of Contents

Choosing the right siding for your home is a decision that can greatly impact its longevity, aesthetic appeal, and overall maintenance. A prevalent issue homeowners face is the damage caused by woodpeckers. James Hardie fiber cement presents a solution to this common problem, effectively protecting homes from these persistent birds.

The Problem with Woodpeckers and Wood Siding

Many homeowners contact us, seeking proposals for their homes. One of the chief reasons for their distress, apart from wood rot, is the relentless damage from woodpeckers.

These birds persistently pound holes into wood siding, causing both aesthetic and structural issues. What attracts them? It’s the allure of bugs that reside in moisture-laden wood siding.

Why James Hardie Fiber Cement is Woodpecker-Proof

James Hardie fiber cement siding is a revolutionary product we proudly install. Unlike traditional wood, it does not absorb moisture, which in turn prevents the proliferation of bugs – the main attraction for woodpeckers.

Without this food source, woodpeckers have no incentive to peck at your home. Instead, they’ll likely move on to a neighboring house with traditional wood siding, leaving your home damage-free.

Durability of James Hardie Siding

The durability of James Hardie siding is remarkable. Unlike other materials like LP smartside or masonite siding that may still attract woodpeckers, James Hardie fiber cement stands resilient against wood-boring insects and, of course, woodpeckers.

This durability, paired with its woodpecker-proof nature, is one of the prime reasons we vouch for this product.

Why Homeowners Choose James Hardie Fiber Cement

Beyond the issue of woodpeckers, most homeowners desire a low-maintenance exterior. Wood siding, though aesthetically pleasing, often invites a host of problems, from woodpeckers to frequent repair needs.

James Hardie fiber cement reduces these exterior maintenance hassles. Moreover, even if a homeowner manages to repair the damage from woodpeckers, these birds simply relocate to a new spot on the house, making repairs an endless cycle.

Ineffectiveness of Other Woodpecker Deterrents

Over time, many have tried various deterrents, from hanging fishing lines across the siding to installing sparkly objects and flyers.

But, in most cases, these methods are ineffective and end up being mere eyesores. It’s no wonder homeowners eventually turn to more effective and lasting solutions like James Hardie fiber cement.
