Nuisance Wildlife Barrier And Deck Screening

Deck with cedar wallsHaving problems with nuisance wildlife making their home underneath your deck or home? Well you've come to the right place, because we can build a barrier around your deck or porch to prevent the critters from living there. We have gotten calls for all sorts of problem wild animal living under their decks. Animals including raccoons, groundhogs, skunks, opossums, fox, and feral cats. These are animals that seek shelter to stay out the harsh climate conditions in Michigan. Wild animals need sheltered areas to survive, but those areas need to be in the wild where they belong. It's understanding wildlife look for areas around your home, because their natural habitat is increasingly diminishing. With that said we still can't allow nuisance wildlife to live under your deck. People and wildlife should coexist, but not at a threat.

How Do We do It?
When installing a deck barrier it is important to dig a trench around the problem area. Digging a 12"-18" trench around the deck will keep nuisance wildlife from digging underneath the fencing. Once the hole is dug out we cut the hardware cloth to fit around the entire deck. Typically a 1/4" hardware cloth is used because it has a higher gauge than the 1/8" we use for screening vents. When installing the hardware cloth it is recommended to put a 4"-6" L shape at the bottom of the screen. We screw the screen around the bottom edge of the deck. Then we back fill the trench with the dirt we excavated to complete the job. To see a video on how we do this click here
