    The two exhaust vents that are needing to be covered are located on the side of our house (which are accessible by standing on our garage roof). I have purchased the pest guards already, just need them installed.

    Please let me know if you, or anyone you know can do the job. Thanks!

    I used Jeeves Handyman service for this exact same thing. But I also had a bunch of other items I needed too because my intention was to maximize the use of the service. Their rates were reasonable and customer service was great. Part of why I needed them for this was the use of a 40' ladder to reach mine. But the birds were driving me nuts and getting all the way into my vent fans in the bathrooms. Now is a good time to cover the vents before spring.

    Rough idea of costs? Just hourly rates or what?

    Thx!

    Yea just hourly rates. They will walk through the projects with you over the phone and estimate the labor. I had to get 2 guys to come because of the 40' ladder and I believe it was just over $100 an hour (for 2 guys). The said they would do all size jobs so I would just call them for an estimate. I had around 5 vents to cover... 3 new toilets to install, drywall repair and caulking. Took my team a little over half a day to do it all.

    Also, if you are military or a government employee there is a discount for that too.
