Honest and put me at ease!!
I thought we had termites. 1st, our siding looked like it was eaten up. 2nd, a guy from Terminix came out and said we had termites. When I asked him to show them to me. He just said, "Well, there was that dead one on the window sill." (I know someone that use to work for Orkin, so he gave me some pointers. He said, "Make sure he shows them to you in the wood.) Anyway, I called Gary from Alternative and he was great. He informed me that we do not have termites, told me the problem, (moisture damage), made some recommendations and was on his way. Gary did not try to sell me anything. He saw that we had bigger fish to fry so to speak and recommended we fix the water problem first, then worry about termite treatment. He even went as far as to tell me that he wouldn't do the treatment until the water problem was taken care of because the treatment would wash away. How honest is that?! He spent about 20-30 mins. with me, gave me pointers on our water problems and is even going to call me with a recommendation with someone from his church that does waterproofing-(I asked him if he knew someone). I WILL call him for our termite treatment as soon as we take care of our water problems.(Which we're doing now). I am a very skeptical person and this gentleman really put me at ease. I will recommend him to everybody I know!
