We offer one-year exclusion warranties that cover all entry point repairs and exclusion techniques. The warranty is specific to the target animal removed or other species as noted, and is renewable each year for $250. Additionally, the warranty is transferrable to new owners if the property is sold within its first year.
Our exclusion repair often lasts longer than the warranty period; however, the condition of the structure and remodeling can affect those points of entry repairs. We offer maintenance programs and inspection after the warranty expires.
