We won’t lie to you and tell you that we’re the only contractors in town. After all, when you’re on a search engine and type in “general contractors near me” or “rodent control near me,” there are other companies that come up. So how do you choose which one to go with? From the many providers in the Georgetown area, how does a person end up choosing a company for general contracting and rodent control?

We humbly ask that you consider us here at Topps Home Services, and offer the following reasons why you might choose us as your general contractor, critter control experts…or both!

We’ll Fix The Problems The Critters Caused

While there are other general contractors around and other pest control services around, we’d bet we’re the only ones that are doing both!

Topps Home Services recognized a need that other companies just weren’t providing. When critters move in, they often create a host of physical problems within the house. Some mice and rats will compact and destroy the insulation in a home, but other rodent control companies aren’t going to replace the insulation. (Topps Home Services performs insulation installation.) Other rodents will chew on wires, but a mice exterminator isn’t going to fix those wires. (Topps can help with that as well.) Did a squirrel chew a hole in the corner of your home in order to make a nest? A squirrel removal expert might get the squirrel out, but they’re not going to repair the home so that other animals don’t take advantage of the big gap. (Topps will live-trap and relocate the squirrel, then repair the damage caused.)

While We’re There…

If you’re like most people, your schedule is pretty busy. You probably can’t be taking off from work left and right, and you have most of your vacation days planned out to the hour.

So when you have a rodent control problem, you’re certainly going to want it taken care of quickly. But you’ve also been wanting to get those few pieces of siding repaired on the house, and you wouldn’t mind getting the living room repainted. Instead of hiring multiple contractors and dealing with multiple invoices, why not just hire Topps? We can take care of all of your general contracting needs, including remodeling, flooring, drywall repair, and just about any other task you have around the house. We’ll take care of it all, and do it on schedule.

We Can Bring a Discreet Vehicle

Here’s one of the biggest misconceptions that people have about rodent control services: “The people who need it are at fault.” In truth, that’s seldom the case.

Anyone, and we mean anyone, can experience the problems of a mouse or rat in their home. Old houses might have more exterior wooden features that a rodent can chew a hole through. Newer homes can experience soil settling and cracked foundations, which can let in critters. (Here’s an interesting article about the most common ways that rodents infiltrate a home.) Any home can let a mouse in through a garage door; newer homes with three garage doors are three times more likely to let in a mouse than a home with a single garage door!

Society might associate “having mice” with “uncleanliness,” but it’s just not the case. Still, as unfair as the correlation is, we understand if you don’t want a van sitting outside your home with a big sign on it that says “Rodent Control.” Topps Home Services is more than happy to bring a discreet vehicle that doesn’t have anything to do with being a rodent exterminator.


Topps Home Services believes in our work, no matter what job we might be doing for you. If you have us install a new floor, we want you to be perfectly happy with it. If you have us remove a possum from your detached garage, we want to make sure that a repair is made so that the possum doesn’t come back.

Topps has one of the longest guarantees in the industry, because we know you want it done right the first time. We offer a 3-year-guarantee on our jobs, because we have faith in the quality our employees provide. Sure, there’s some fine print with this guarantee, but we’re more than happy to discuss it with you. We think you’ll be impressed with our dedication to making sure everything turns out right.

Free Consultation

We’ll wrap up today’s article with one final reason to pick Topps as your rodent control or renovation experts: a free consultation. Many companies aren’t interested in offering this because it takes up too much of their time. But our company believe that if you get to know us, you’ll be sure to choose us for your next home project. All you have to do is give us a call or fill out the form on this page to get a free consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!
