Every season I am saddened to hear of a family or resident from my community that spends thousands of dollars on unnecessary home restoration because they were told it was necessary by a pest control company or contractor.  While it is very true that pests in your home can cause significant and costly damage, it doesn’t always mean that you need to completely rebuild your crawl space or vapor barrier after a pest problem.  Too often, these extensive renovations are easy sells for predatory agents and contractors who use the “psychosis” of pest infestation to fuel panic and grossly inflate  the amount of work that needs to be done.

So, to all reading this I advise you to protect yourself with one simple-but-reliable practice, “get a second opinion”. If you have received an $8,000 estimate to do significant structural renovation to your house because of a recent pest problem, seek out 1-2 other opinions to make sure that you actually need all of this work to be done.

If you are looking for a reliable second opinion you can count on us. Call Summit Pest Management  (503) 639 – 2500.Our company was built upon 3 core values:  Honesty, Experience and Reliability.
