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.
This process started out slowly with a few of the competitors coming in and saying they could get the bats out with a couple of different approaches. All of them had the general dialogue of what you would read in a franchise brochure, but none of them really impressed me. So we waited a few weeks and were at a loss on how to address this problem. Then we logged into Angie’s List to find another group of exterminators. In this batch we had a few more companies, including Thoroughspect, LLC. When Thoroughspect showed up, we got a very comprehensive inspection and assessment. Where all the rest of them just said we could get the bats out, Brian Sweig looked at the feces and concluded we had a problem with four varmints (Grey Squirrels, Flying Squirrels, Bats, and field mice). He was the first company to assess we had a broader problem and was the first company to focus on removal and sealing the house. I don’t know if the other companies did not notice the different types of animals, or more likely, they did not care. We then had some very detailed discussions with Brian after his thorough inspection, reviewed pictures of the gaping holes in our attic, and put an action plan in place to remediate. For each of the animals we created a different approach to eradicate and then seal.
Three weeks later, we could not be happier. The attic and basement have been sealed and the varmints have been humanely removed. We have sealed the dormers and the many holes into our attic. It was a long-term investment in our biggest asset. Although we initially debated with an approach to just remove the current animals, we are ecstatic that we have sealed the house and will not have this problem again.
I cannot say enough about THOROUGHSPECT,LLC. I have never written a review for Angie’s List much less any website, but Brian and ThoroughSpect properly determined the scope of our problem, put a multi-pronged strategy in place to eradicate and seal, and completed this ON TIME and ON BUDGET!
Additionally, the inspection that Brian delivered not only addressed our known issues, but he also noted a few other issues we have with our chimney, windows leaks, boiler, etc. Through his inspection, Brian also noted our radon fan from the basement had stopped working and the radon system was not working properly. We got the servicemen out quickly to fix that one! Just another example of how Brian went above and beyond expectations. Brian also works with the Dog Rescue and had significant knowledge he shared with us on taking care of our four-legged friend. He truly cares about his customers!
I would tell any of my friends to have Brian come out and give you a quote. You will immediately see the difference! I would definitely use him again for these type or other services! He was thorough, knowledgeable, careful, responsive, and delivered the job on time and on budget!I would tell any of my friends to have Brian come out and give you a quote.
