I'd rather let someone else make that Kasey. It was way too cold out for me, and Im kinda not so cold friendly.

Mike, I never do that anymore. ( Unless the customer's not present ) They feel that they are not getting what they paid for when you make it look too easy. When you get them growling and hissing and jump out of the window well, then the customer thinks they hired the right guy. I've never been bitten by on opie but a friend of mine showed me his scar, which is probably the reason why.

I did have a customer, with a similar window well, ask my the skunk kept spraying, since it was never bothered. I told her that the snapping turtle that was also caught in the window well, might have a lot to do with it!

A few years ago and older lady call and said there was something making a lot of noise near her porch. When I arrive, no noise. Looked all over the place, in crawl space,under the porch. Nothing, about 45 minutes later it made a noise. I had to smile, it was a tree frog and it was in the door. It was a alum. door and there was a opening at the bottom. I had looked in all the plants etc. When I give her the bill she look at me, lets say in a different way. I said to bad it didn't have big teeth and snap at us. Then she just smiled.

Well at least you were smart enough to figure out that it was a tree frog. I had one that sounded so much like a baby raccoon that I didn't know it was a tree frog until I finally saw it. ( Talk about embarrassing; there goes my Master Technician's License )

I wonder if those basement escape wells (basically, they're fire escapes, required by code) can be covered, or is that against code?

I am saying you did exactly what i would have done and you handled the customers questions very well!! truthful and solved her problem. Great video! I think that is what should be done on these issues. You solved the immediate problem, put the customer at ease, and also recommended the long term solution. Great job.
