Squirrels decided to live rent free in our attic

Squirrels decided to live rent free in our attic. They chewed through plastic roof vent then through roof until they landed in fluffy pink insulation and started making nests.
We did due diligence research considering word of mouth recommendations, Kijiji ads and HomeStarts reviews.
After talking to multiple wildlife removers, decision was made to hire Louis to humanly remove and do house proofing.
BEST DECISION Ever. Lous is true professional: polite, patient, very experienced, willing to listen, explain and answer every silly and tough question. Quote was provided over the phone and was reasonable regarding work to be done.
On agreed day of service Louis arrived on time, explained again what he has to do and proceeded with initial investigation from inside house to determine if any babies are in the attic using thermo-scanner. After that actual attic inspection was performed and results was negative no babies were there.
One way door was installed at points of entry. We initiated discussion how to house-proof of further intrusion. Louis we Never pushy nor tried to upsell his services. He only suggested what will be good idea to do. We decided to proceed with house-proofing and metal cages were installed over all roof vents.
After few days all squirrels were gone. But to our surprise in two weeks, they managed to find another point of entry. Right to his word and iron-clad 5-year warranty Lous installed another one-way door and applied industrial caulking/glue to similar potential points of entry on the soffit. New roof vent cover replacing chewed off was installed at the same time.
Thus, in the last 4 months there were no further attempts of squirrels unauthorized squatting in our attic. We are very confident they will not be able to break into attic again. In case they magically do that, Louis will be here to assist!
Thank you Louis for your excellent service. Price we paid was exactly what we have been quoted with no surprizes.

Bird in Kitchen Exhaust Vent

Louis was fantastic to deal with throughout the whole experience. Had a starling that broke through my kitchen exhaust vent covers and made it its hideout, and unfortunately got trapped and caught in my fan. Louis was quick to respond the very next day, walked me through the process, and was very thorough in cleaning up the mess - even right down to the exhaust fan blades. He also made sure it was disinfected properly, and made sure all vent covers were secured with new cage coverings. I would not hesitate to call on his services again.

Secured roof and chimney entrance so mama raccoon couldn't get into the attic!

Louis is very dependable and came as soon as he could to avoid the female racoon having a baby (s) in our attic. Very friendly, thorough, and professional. He is a lifesaver, literally!

Kitchen Vent Noise

Went to get something from kitchen to be met with a noise in the vent above the stove, it was an animal but not sure what.

Called A-1 Checkmate and even though they were fully booked I was told that they would be there by 5 pm the following day.

The next day when Louis checked it was a bird that was coming and going, had not built nest yet as I kept noise in area. He also discovered that the vent above the stove had never been taped together or secured to the cupboard, he fixed this. Outside he removed the plastic cover on the wall and replaced it with a stronger one with a cage overtop. He also put a cage over another vent on the house and replaced the plastic dryer vent with a metal one.

I would recommend A-1 Checkmate to everyone as the work is amazing and it is only the work that is required.

Louis helped my mother and I out at her house about 10 years ago and he remembered, even sent me a picture of the old house on his way home.
