Matching on Angi
The day after we called for an estimate, Mike came out. He found a few active termite tubes on the foundation outside of the house. He also inspected the inside of the house, and other than one place we showed him with a few little holes in the wall, he didn't find any indication of termites inside. Mike drew a diagram of the house and showed us where he thought it should be treated -- putting Termidor in a trench around the outside of the house and garage to kill any termites that came in from the outside, into holes in the foundation walls around the outside to kill termites that were already in the house, as well as into holes drilled in the foundation underneath the carpet in the room that had evidence of termites and where the outside treatment could not be done because of a common wall with a neighbor. Mike sat down with us and explained the reasons for each part of the treatment that he was recommending. He gave us an estimate, and we discussed a few other option with him and the cost of each. We decided to go with Mike's recommendations and to contract with Action Termite Control for several reasons. Mike was very professional and knowledgeable in answering our questions. Their estimate was very reasonable. This company uses Termidor, which from the research we found on the Internet seems to be somewhat more effective than other chemicals for subterranean termites. And, the company gave us a 10-year warranty. The next day, Brian came out and did all the trenching and drilling and filled it all with Termidor. Then he and a co-worker put the soil back in the trenches, patched the holes in the foundation and put the carpet back down. It took them the better part of a day to do all the work. After they left, we noticed one hole in the foundation that had not been patched. We called and Brian came out the next week to patch it.
