So, thinking ahead to sealing off the attic area. My wife wants me to get someone to do it "right." I'm a limited handyman. So, I've been quoted about $1,200 to $1,500 for full exclusion and sealing off all potential entry areas. This includes about 200 ft of fascia capping with galvanized metal, two gables sealed, all exterior vents, and reinforcement of soffit corners, among other things. Lifetime transferable warranty. One also included decontamination and spraying to make it less likely that the squirrels will smell their way back.
Here are my questions:
1. I wanted to put in gutter covers rather than fascia caps to seal off the construction gap between the roof deck and fascia. That way the squirrels stay out AND leaves/debris stay out. What are your thoughts?
2. Does the price quote seem reasonable? I would do it myself, but may not do it right and will probably take longer because I have limited free time.
3. If I do go "pro," any other things I should ask to ensure I get it done right?
