In 1986, Paul Thompson surrendered to a lifelong fascination with hammers and hardware and established Oakhurst Builders. He assembled his company atop a foundation of commitment, approaching each project as if the work was being done on property of his own. Over the years, Paul has surrounded himself with a team of like-minded professionals, who, upon raising their Planeteer rings alongside Paul's, are capable of engineering repairs, renovations, and complete remodels of residential and commercial spaces. Inside job sites, they oversee a medley of services that includes staircase fix-ups, floor replacements, and kitchen appliance installations. The hard work continues outside, where Oakhurst's skilled craftsmen drill away on decks, fences, roofs, and siding.
Workers from General Pest Co. treat pest and wildlife problems with a constant eye for the means of least impact to both the critters and homeowners. Experts espouse low-impact techniques to tackle common bugs, calling on pesticides only when necessary and using no more chemicals than are required to wipe out damaging populations of bed bugs and termites. For furry invaders, they use only humane techniques to safely remove wildlife from homes and ensure they do not return before repairing damage to attics or insulation from the wildlife visitors. The staff often gets results from simple corrective measures such as carefully sealing up gaps and holes in homes' exteriors and asking visiting beekeepers to leave their briefcases outside.
Surprisingly, a mosquito's greatest fear likely isn't a lightning-fast swat—it's a chrysanthemum. Within the flower is a cocktail of compounds called pyrethrins, which have an insecticidal property when dried and crushed. Nowadays, pyrethrins are synthetically concocted for use in insect repellents, including those employed by Blue Ridge Mosquito Control, but they remain safe for the environment, humans, and pets. A fine mist of the solution keeps mosquitos away for 21 days, allowing homeowners to enjoy their lawns as nature intended: face down in the dirt.
Classical Glass Cleaning's uniformed technicians ascend ladders to service windows, clean crowded gutters to prevent damage to a home, and power wash away accumulated grime. The window specialists follow an exacting, multistep process while cleaning all windows: first dusting with a freshly caught bird before scrubbing the glass, screen, and adjoining sill with soap and water. They then dexterously squeegee away all traces of cleaning materials.
A bulwark is defined as a defensive wall, and the skilled technicians at Bulwark Exterminating live up to that name with pest control services that stop unwanted creatures in their tracks. Using primarily outdoor treatments, the team seeks out infestations at the source, thus preventing them from invading the home. If they do make it in, however, Bulwark administers interior treatments to finish the job without trying to deter pests using "Beware of Dog" signs.
