Brian Sweig is professional, reliable, environmentally careful (he uses no poisons), and extraordinary knowledgeable. He applies his knowledge to all aspects of rodent proofing and water proofing a home using thermal imaging to detect access points, then a variety of methods to seal them. Detail-oriented, and dedicated to his task, he goes beyond expectations, living up to all claims on his website, thesealer.com.
Brian Sweig knows more about homes, systems and safety than any contractor I’ve ever worked with. He found problems in our home which our inspector totally missed, including a live propane line a propane leak, , asbestos and evidence of a fire in the basement and chimney.
We purchased an old house last year that was in some disrepair. We had a baby on the way and we realized that we had a fairly serious pest infestation (mice, bats) and a damp basement with bad quality air.
We had experienced field mice and other vermin in our home for years, with traps serving as our “best defense”, but the problem seemed to grow worse. We were referred to Brian by someone who had heard of him by word of mouth.
We are in the process of finishing our attic on our five year old home and were in the phase of insulating the attic. The insulation company came in and said they thought we had some bats, but were not sure whether it was a small number or large number of bats.
Brian Sweig, the owner of Thoroughspect, was on site for supervision of all of the work. He was always punctual, intelligent and polite, very attentive to detail, and exceptionally careful of our property and household possessions.
Service went well. Brian was great. They started and finished when they said they would. We highly recommend his services.
Brian is a true professional and an expert in inspecting and sealing homes against pests. He thoroughly inspected our home inside and out, beginning with the attic.
Brian Sweig of Thoroughspect/THE SEALER/BUSTED! takes the quote “runs a
tight ship” to new heights. The fact that he is extremely
knowledgeable in this arena of rodent control is an understatement.
We called Brian because we were getting high humidity levels and had bats in our roof space. He did an extremely thorough inspection of the house, and was back very promptly to deal with both problems. He responds immediately to emails and his team did very neat and effective work – like beautiful caulking and invisible sealing where very rough-and-ready work had been done previously – and they dealt with every single one of the many issues that Brian spotted in his inspection.
I bought the coupon for inspection from Angie’s list. Brian went far beyond identifying pest control problems and highlighted other issues in the house. He was very thorough and knowledgeable. I have complete confidence in recommending him.
We had purchased a big deal for the service, and they were good. We have chosen to go with them for the treatment.
I purchased an Angie’s List Big Deal for this service and it was okay. I have not made a decision yet, but I think the assessment was very good. We got a quote for follow-up work, but we have not decided on that one yet.p;
Brian came or emailed every day regarding the work. His workers were efficient, neat and very polite. They did extensive work around the house and in our crawl space, shoring up the numerous potential entries to my home.
Inspected Basement, Attic and exterior for evidence of pests. Offered
solutions for identified problems. Also offered helpful advice on
maintenance items not specific to pest control.
Brian is fantastic! He was punctual, extremely knowledgeable, personable and walked the extra mile for us. He did a wonderful job rodent proofing our home, but was also very helpful with other areas in the house that needed attention. He really took the time to explain everything to us and even provided us with a great plumber for a leak he found during his inspection. His rates are more than reasonable, especially given the amazing service he provides. I highly recommend Brian and Thoroughspect.
Brian Sweig responded promptly and set up an appointment for a week later. His inspection of our home was very thou rough and well worth the inspection fee of $55 that we received from being an Angie’s list member. We do indeed plan to utilize his services to seal our home and remove existing rodents.
Brian and Thoroughspect are absolutely amazing. Brian is great. I can’t recommend him highly enough. He has really been a spectacular resource. He is actually coming over later today. There is no more aptly named company than his. He is absolutely thorough in every conceivable way. He has actually been working here ever since then. It was a big deal purchase of $49. There has been additional cost. He has also recommended me to an electrician and that’s very helpful. He truly is thorough.
I hired Thoroughspect to provide sealing and exclusion work around my house after initially engaging them through an Angie’s List promotion for a rodent exclusion inspection. Brian and his team went way above and beyond my expectations in the care and detail they put into sealing all rodent access points in my home.
Brian is a true master in the art of identifying vulnerabilities in the construction of a house. He was perfectly punctual in arriving for our appointment and he performed a very detailed inspection of all levels of my house, complete with photo documentation of his findings. Brian even pointed out other helpful tips such as where I had water running into my foundation from a gutter downspout. This visit led me to hire Thoroughspect on subsequent house sealing work.
Brian begins by performing a thorough inspection of your home – from top to bottom – and provides a detailed analysis, complete with photos, of what is needed to seal your home from pests.
Brian and his team were great. He provided us with a thorough evaluation of our house (we were first-time homebuyers and had just purchased the house in October) and all the points where rodents could enter.
Brian and his crew spent an entire week installing one-way traps, wire mesh, concrete, and various other devices and mediums to seal and pest-proof the house.
The final product was absolutely top notch. All aspects of the house were sealed and protected, including: garage, foundation, attic, and siding.
Brian is possibly the most knowledgeable person I’ve ever met on issues involving home maintenance and pest elimination. Scheduling was easy, he came precisely when he said he would, and he performed an incredibly thorough interior and exterior inspection, despite the fact he had an injured arm.
House was completely sealed from attic to basement, have not seen any critters, and is guaranteed for the next five years! Strong work.
GREAT. Brian Zweig and his team are extremely thorough (thus the name I guess) from start to finish. The inspection is comprehensive and useful even if you choose not to have any follow up work done.
They sealed all potential entry ways into the house by rodents and bats. Sealed the complete foundation and sealed off the eaves and other potential entry points. They should up each day as scheduled and have done multiple site visits to check the final work and to check the traps inside the house. They’ll be back in the spring for a final check of their product.
Brian was very easy to reach. I booked an inspection with him on relatively short notice on Christmas Eve. He arrived on time and was extremely thorough with his inspection and explanations.
Brian came over to the house for a consultation, and I found him to be both extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his line of work.
Gave good hits for many practical issues. He is very friendly, thorough, knowledgeable about remediation in the house.
Brian sealed the outside of my home to keep pests out. Waterproofed my basement. His staff was prompt and diligent in their work.
Thanks to Angie’s and to Thoroughspect for this help We have used them for Painting, Masonry Chimney repair, Inspections, Ducts and other things as well.
It went great. He was a fountain of information. We learned a great deal about our house! Brian
M. Sweig is an absolute resource. Thank-you!
Thoroughspect spent a tremendous amount of time walking around our home and pointing out issues. He willingly shared his extensive knowledge with us and was extremely courteous. Would highly recommend!
From the first phone call with Brian, he was pleasant, professional and showed complete competence for his profession. Brian showed up for the consultation on time with a good nature spirit about what he does, how and why.
Brian and the team at Thoroughspect are simply amazing. We called them after my husband found a dead mouse in our basement (we have lived in the house for about 5 months) and I wasn’t convinced that our extermination company was adequately addressing the issue. Brian came out and did a very detailed inspection.
Takes great care in evaluating complex home difficulties, and persists in challenging situation to find accurate answers and creative solutions founded in high level of knowledge! Honest and understanding, with communication through either email or phone.
It went well. We had a little bit of a shaky start since the weather got so bad , Brian wasn’t able to get to me as quickly as I expected, and it would have been good if he kept in touch with me.
he provided lots of good advice
so awesome this guy did the best job!
no more mice!!
He was awesome! I wish he was my home inspector. Brian was detailed, helpful, and hilarious. He even went out of his way to list and photograph everything I needed to do.
We had to wait a while for the weather to allow outdoor work. When Brian came back he brouight two workers and introduced them to me right away.
He was extremely competent and thorough.
A tremendous inspection and terrificly detailed proposal for remediation.
On the main task of getting bats, mice and squirrels out of our house Brian initially did a very thorough (just as the name implies!) inspection of our house and even send me photos to work for possible entry ways and things he will attend to.
I contacted Thoroughspect after seeing an Angie’s List deal for their inspection service on house sealing against rodents and other critters. I had suspected squirrels had entered my attic after hearing noises above my bedroom throughout the cold winter and initially thought i would investigate and attempt to do some sealing myself when the weather was warmer.
This was probably the BEST experience with a contractor EVER. Brian is extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and enthusiastic about his work, which all shows in the finished project.
Very professional and courteous. Provided very detailed report and summary on inspection of various areas of house.
We had critters in our house – entering from the roof. Brian explained everything to us well, gave us advice on protecting our home, and humanely helped the animals escape. He fixed the problem and was great to work with.
Brian reached our place on time and was very professional. He certainly is expert in his field and was very thorough inspecting ventilation system in our attic and spent his time checking other area such as foundation and heating system.
Just recently we had a flood in our basement. Actually, water was backing up from a clogged gutter and coming through our front door, into a window well and the basement. Brian was our first call. He pinpointed the problem (bad positioning of
downspouts, poor drainage around the house) and fixed everything within a week.
The service was good. He was very informative and walked me through everything. We had just purchased a new house so he educated me on what to look for.
Brian performed a comprehensive review of my home (including photos) of rodent access point and provided a full report. His crew examined my home inch by inch for access point and closed them.
Brian and his staff were professional, knowledgeable and incredibly resourceful. He is a man of his word – a dying breed!
He worked efficiently, cleanly and followed through.
Thoroughspect is far and away the best contractor we’ve ever worked with on any home maintenance issue, bar none. Initially, we thought the price quoted was a bit high, and we thought we would try to do the work ourselves — a big mistake; it is absolutely impossible for an untrained person to do this work adequately.
The day after the work was complete, Brian came over to do a walk through with my Husband and I to explain everything that went on. So far it has been a week and so far so good!
Brian will be coming back 2 weeks from the day of completion to do another check and look at the snap traps he put in our attic & indoor crawl space.
I was extremely satisfied with Thoroughspect, and in particular Brian Sweig (owner). Brian and his team did a fantastic job on my house making it 100% pest free (which included challenges from mice and bats).
The service went very well. Brian did a total review of the exterior of the house, interior inspection of the basement and attic.
Brian was very thorough in his inspection. He discussed everything he saw as he went through the inspection, and then he followed up with pictures and the details and estimates.
I thought they did an excellent job. We had a couple mice. They did an excellent job on the inspection and their tips. They were efficient and he explained what he was doing. They were professional and he was really knowledgeable about what he was looking for.
I purchased the Angie’s Big Deal for a home inspection for pest access points @ $55. Brian spent ca 2 hrs inspecting our home and explaining all the things he found, not limited to rodents or work done by his company, but also items of general concern e.g. loose chimney door, misaligned heating ducts, furnace nozzle sizing, clogged gutters, carpenter ants, leak in roof, cracked chimney, etc.
He was very informative. He gave me some tips. We had a mouse problem, so he inspected the house. He really helped me with something other than exterminating.
Excellent. Brian is a true professional who passionately loves being excellent in his field. He communicated very well with us all along the way. The price originally surprised us, but we were so impressed with his expertise and the description of the depth of the issue and the solution required that we decided to go with him.
The work was absolutely great and better than my expectations. They live up to their name of thorough, both in the initial inspections and the repairs.
Everything was easy smooth professional and excellent. They were very thorough, professional, and clearly had a great knowledge of what they were doing.
They did a good job and I would consider using them again.
After the inspection, I received a quote within a week, and was scheduled for the sealing service 2-3 weeks later. The sealing took 5 days (was quoted for 3-5 days) as our house is 100 yrs old with nooks and crannies and holes put in strange places by contractors over the years – all great access points for the mice, squirrels, snakes and bats we had in our attics and patios.
He honored the big deal amount. He was very knowledgeable and very professional. He did a good job and he gave me a lot of information.
We first purchased a big deal from Thoroughspect about a year ago, after noticing rodent activity shortly after moving into our house.
Brian is a true profesional and great at his line of business. He is a pleasure to deal with and truly does whats best for his clients. Highly recommended.
Brian, from the company came to my house and did a thorough inspection of my crawlspace, utility room, attic and perimeters of my house.
Excellent experience. From initial quote til installation and through to post-installation follow-ups, the experience with Thoroughspect was fantastic.
Very professional. We have had no problems since work was done.
he is more than just a rodent inspection. he took his time went thru the whole house and made very good suggestions. For example he looked at our nat gas and thought it was leaking. he stood with my pregnant wife until gas folks came. they replaced the unit. he is very careful. I would HIGHLY recommend.
Cannot sing the praises of this company or its owner, Brian, loudly enough. I contacted him for help with an emergency situation at my home this afternoon, he emailed and called me back within 2 minutes and within a matter of hours he was there with the necessary equipment and know how to solve the problem.
Mr. Brian Sweig came to my house as scheduled for his inspection. His services went above and beyond my expectations. You can tell Brian is serious about his craft and his attention to detail is appreciated.
Brian prioritzed our home since he knew how serious our problem was with infestation and two young children at home. His prices were more than reasonable. His team also worked very hard and did a great job.
The provider came to my home at the appointed time (on time) went through my entire house checking for rodents, took photos, discussed some findings with my husband, and followed with a detailed report via the internet. He also discussed the work to mitigate our problem and the cost of the job. Although we are not getting the work done now we may in the future and we would use the provider.
We had been getting bats and mice in house. Since work was completed and remaining mice caught and removed we have not seen any evidence of rodent activity.
I had read the reviews and after this brief but thorough accounting and review of my problem I was impressed enough to commit then and there to the initial plan he offered.
Brian was excellent. He was on time, polite, clean and respectful.
He did a complete inspection and told us the work he would need to do on our home. He examined every portion of our crawl spaces, outside our home and our basement. He was great.
They contacted me within an hour of purchasing the deal. They informed me that they don’t service apartments or units without exterior walls, but he had given me a number of another company who could help out.
Though my attic didn’t have any signs of critters, he did see an area of mold on the inside wood of the roof. In the basement, there was a space in the cinder block wall that allowed light to go through, which I had not seen.
Mice have made our basement their winter home since we built our house 15 years ago. After reading all the great reviews, I purchased a home inspection from Thoroughspect.
Five words come to mind when reviewing this service provider: integrity, expertise, diligence, customer service.
Stewarded by owner / operator Brian Sweig, Thoroughspect offers a spectacularly complete package.
Brian was thorough, knowledgeable and respectful of our home and privacy. In addition, he was a wealth of information of how to remediate environmental concerns.
He was lovely. He came out and gave me a lot of information and was very nice. He was great.
I could not imagine hiring a more thorough or professional individual than Brian/ company than Thoroughspect.
Brian and his team are excellent. The inspection was extremely thorough and detailed. In addition to pointing out areas where the mice and flying squirrels were entering the house he pointed out several areas in my home where maintenance should be done including a leak in my roof near the chimney and a leaking propane tank.
I bought a big deal for this service and it was good. They were very knowledgeable.
Brian (the owner of Thoroughspect), came to our house to do an initial assessment. He was very thorough and took pictures of everything he found, which was quite a bit.
He helped me with a lot of issues, such as the venting of my gas water heater, and an old termite trap, as well. He is very knowledgeable about a lot of issues of home safety.
Outstanding work. Even better customer service. Very responsive. More importantly, proactive communicating plans, setting expectations, etc.
Very knowledgeable. Provided an extremely detailed inspection. I plan to have Brian back to correct some of the issues he uncovered soon.
Brian spent a great deal of time with us and was more than happy to answer any question we asked. He even diagnosed that our water heater needed to be replaced.
Very knowledgable and thorough guy! Took many, many pictures of problems on our roof, crawlspace, etc, that alerted us to things we needed to deal with that went way beyond pest control. We’re very grateful to him for that. We will use him to deal with some of the issues he discovered this summer. Highly recommend.
I used them for an estimate, and the inspector was very thorough. He took his time to explain things. Excellent.
It went great. He found the critters that were coming through the house. He is very delightful to work with. He has done an inspection and I am waiting on the report, but planning on hiring him in the future.
Brian came in January to our house because we were having a mouse issue. He gave us a detailed inspection of what were the causes of our mice issue.
Brian was great to work with. He is very knowledgeable about sealing houses and was also able to help
us with several recommendations in other areas (i.e. asbestos removal). He was incredibly thorough and took a lot of pictures
and annotated each one. We hired Thoroughspect to seal our house from top to bottom. He and his team were very polite, professional and friendly. We were very happy with the quality of the work and would strongly recommend Brian and the Thoroughspect team.
The crew spent several days trapping, eliminating and sealing the house. They sealed every crevice in the basement, roof/attic and eaves.
went well. very knowledgeable and thorough.
Brian was very easy to deal with, extremely responsive and offered excellent and transparent communication throughout our dealings with him. Work was completed on the timeline he promised.
Brian and his crew were punctual, professional, and thorough. Brian conducted an extremely thorough onsite inspection of the property. He is shockingly knowledgable about pests, their tendencies, and how to evict them permanently. He took photos of everything during the inspection and took detailed notes. He told me what he was doing and what he was seeing as he went. He even pointed out many issues with my home which needed to be addressed, but were unrelated to the pest issue.
The service went superbly. They were thorough, professional and friendly. I wish I knew about this company when I bought my house I would have used them for my home inspectors. They do an amazing job.
Booked him on Monday or Tuesday and he fit us in on Thursday. His crew showed up on time, as they always do, and went about their work quietly and quickly.
I cannot say enough positive things about Brian Sweig and Thoroughspect, LLC. He was prompt. He took an incredible amount of time to go over the property during the inspection process. He was clean and respectful of my property.
Had some rodents. Not sure how many because I (thankfully) never saw them and my husband wisely kept that information from me I do know that our termite company was coming regularly to address the issue.
From the moment Brian stepped into our house, I knew he had more on his mind than just the exclusion process we signed up for.
On the two-year anniversary of our home fire we think of you with great fondness and gratitude.
Amazing. They were here for days up on ladders on the roof, etc. Took pictures of all the problems and explained them.
Rated AAA+.? I?have a very high standard for work that is performed in and around our large home in Northern Westchester.?
The best $179 ever spent. ?Very professional, knowledgeable, punctual, extremely thorough (as noted in name) acted with integrity. ?Ideal personality for this line of work.?Would never look elsewhere for this type of service.?
Brian devised a plan to deal with the entirety of our problems. He started with eliminating the rat infestation from around the foundation, and then, set to work on removing the attic infestations and sealing the entire house against future intrusions.
Great provider – highly recommend. Excellent attention to detail, responsive, & has pride in a job well done.
Brian & his team are very knowledgeable, thorough, and courteous. Brian takes the time to really explain how mice and other animals are getting in, and the work they need to do. They sealed our house against mice (and any other critter that might want in).
Brian was highly responsive, extremely efficient, and led a skilled team to do outstanding work. He patiently described what he was doing on the initial inspection of the home and answered all my questions.
They did really good with follow up and coming back to fix any issues we may have had.
With little exception our past experience has been with contractors that overpromise and under deliver. This is NOT the case with Thoroughspect.
Excellent! Since Throroughspect sealed the house, we’ve had no recurring issues.
Exceptional, life-changing service well worth the investment!!! The Thoroughspect team worked 5 days, 9-5, as professionally as one could imagine to get the job done right. After which we had the comfort of knowing the work itself was warrantied against failures.
Since moving to our house 2 years ago we’ve gone through multiple contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc BRIAN IS THE ONLY SERVICE PROVIDER WE HAVE EVER HAD THAT DID EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD, AND MORE.
I first met Brian about 4 years ago after moving into our Westchester home. We hired him to do an inspection of the home. The name of the company fits him because the inspection was in fact very thorough.
Brian and his crew have now sealed two houses for us, in addition to one out-building, and we could not recommend their work more highly.
I cannot say enough about Brian. I initially hired him to seal my home off from rodents as I am terrified of any critters.
As a new homeowner, the best call I ever made was to Brian, at Thoroughspect. Brian’s masterful knowledge about the design, function, and health of a home, combined with his expertise in safe and effective pest removal/ exclusion absolutely sets him and his team apart from others in the field. The team spares no detail in their inspections, diagnostics, and work – and Brian is eager to share his wealth of knowledge to support and teach his clients. In a profession where coupons, fliers, and infomercials misguide homeowners into cutting corners and spraying foam into cracks or using poison to “control” an infestation; Thoroughspect is an absolute diamond in the rough.
My husband and I really appreciate all the work that was done to get rid of the unwanted rodents in our home that Brian and Thoroughspect did. We had exterminators and another company try and seal our home but still kept getting mice regularly so I Googled and found this company. The initial charge for the inspection was affordable and with the information Brian provided us including a pretty bad gas leak ( I had no idea Brian does lots of different types of inspections) we knew we had a shot at living rodent free- his trademark.
We had trouble selling our home as we had all sorts of critters running around. We had a few pest control companies and a few wildlife exclusion companies come and check our home out to see why we had a zoo. We had a couple of people spend 10-20 min, 1 guy spend 35 minutes and was pretty good but was going to use foam in the can and copper mesh- no way!
