Need structural repairs after rat damage?

Persistent rat activity in gardens or in the grounds of a residential complex can be linked to issues with the sewer system, i.e. Norway Rats digging from inside a shore or broken sewer pipe:

Rodents can also access buildings through defects in the outer wall as illustrated below.


When rats and mice enter wall cavities and insulation voids, it is only a matter of time before these rodents gain access into the house (or apartment) through apertures such as air vents. Mice and rats are subsequently be responsible for major damage to the building by chewing through PVC water pipes or electrical wires.


Our engineers are trained in identifying and resolving rat and mice related issues; including excavating and repairing broken sewer pipes and deteriorated manholes:
