Woodpecker holes, or any hole for that matter can pose a serious threat to the integrity of your structure, especially when smaller birds like sparrows and swallows use them to build their nests inside wall cavities. Although this may seem harmless, if left unaddressed, it can lead to extensive damage to the entire structure.
The problem stems from water seeping in through the holes and saturating the foam. When temperatures drop in winter, the water freezes, causing the foam to expand and push the coatings apart, resulting in large protrusions and, in extreme cases, complete failure of the system.
Neglecting these small holes can cause more significant problems, such as base material rot, interior water damage, and mold growth. Therefore, it is crucial to address this issue promptly before it escalates into a major problem.
