seriously? get the silicone out, and start fillin gaps. I would never take a job where I couldnt think I can do it 100% of the way,,, Last night I had to tell a homeowner to buy a new garage door because it was warped, and bats were getting under the topside by the frame.

I would use bat netting all the way around. Just drape it and let them come out from under it then do the seal up as you remove the netting after the bats are out.or you could do a section at a time.

I have seen some silicone with 30 and 50 year warranties. Not to say I'd tell the customer his problem was fixed for the next 50 years. crazy

Maybe you could modify the inside. Remove the drywall or paneling and replace it with plexiglass. Put a sign outside that says "Bat Observation Center" Sell tickets for $25 a pop. Just trying to think outside the box and turn lemons into lemonade...

That picture doesn't really help, but the principles would would be the same for it as any other bat job. Just maybe more work, and yes a warranty would be available for the right price.

I offered one,,,,,,,,,, 10 YEAR........ \ whistle

I tried to convince "them" to do that on a Nation park job, but because the home was donated by the family of the original owner(or anyone for that matter) The (the NP's) had to maintain the building or it could be reclaimed by the downers..

What details would you like to see?,,,,,,Remember the "key" is modular construction..... If you know or have looked at later model "modular" homes in the past,,,,,you can see every detail from this photo,,,

I would start with taking off the gutters so I could see where they are gitting in on the top, than I would use bat netting or cones on the "active" openings and caulk wire or what ever is appropriate to the rest, this dont look that bad the structure looks like it is in good shape, I dont like doing the homes that need repair.


Some will wait for what they want, But this is much more slicker, WORK REAL HARD for what you want, and you will get it much more QUICKER ...
