Overall, I don't normally give out 5-star ratings however I do feel that Tim and the team at Crack Attack Waterproofing went above beyond what was expected for a crawl space encapsulation project for which they also gave me a lifetime warranty.

Actually getting an appointment took about 2 month. Glad I did not have an emergency. The appointment took way too much of my time. It was a surreal moment. Hard to believe i actually spent 2ish hours of my day off listening to this down talking, pontificating salesman Chris Hayden. He quoted drain tile for a concrete crawl. I have a dirt crawl. To explain why Perma Seal was three grand higher than another contractor he explained it was because they use PVC versus abs. Hello I am reasonably young and female but I was not born yesterday. Both are cheap plastic and not that divergent in price. Plus closing my crawl space door is tricky. He man-handled to force the latches closed and left a 2 inch gap on both sides - which I noticed a day or two later. Hope I don't have critters now. The upside is that the Perma seal proposal is very complete and does include material specification.

From start to finish, everything was great. The free estimate that I received was very informative in regards to the actual process. The installers arrived ahead of schedule and did notify me of their eta. They work very diligently and completed the project in about 2 1/2 hours. They removed old debris found in the crawlspace from the previous owner (which there happened to be quite a bit). My crawlspace looked like the before photos shown on the perma-seal website and I refused to go inside the crawlspace. There were critters such as centipedes, spiders and silverfish that would find there way into other parts of the house from the crawlspace, but since having the work done on 21 March 2009, I have not seen one critter. My crawlspace looks so much more inviting. Even though I may never use it for storage because of being claustrophobic, I feel a sense of security now that its a clean space. And it helps that the space is now clean and healthier because it makes it better to show when the time comes for me to sell my property. I would definitely recommend this CleanSpace system to anyone with a dark, damp, uninviting crawlspace.

I had a top notch experience with the Perma-Seal folks... from estimating, through installation, and subsequent warranty work and followup. It was almost 2 years ago when I had all the work performed. Everyone was punctual for their appointments, very knowledgeable and informative on what to expect, how things would work, and what to watch. The end result looks very similar to the other "after" pictures posted... very clean and professional. No mess left after the work. I no longer have that musty smell in the crawl, and I actually store things in there now. After the first year I did have an issue with the pump. They responded quickly and took care of the issue (replaced pump) at no cost. Everything continues to work like a charm. On top of it... after another year went by... I recently received a call to schedule a free inspection and checkup. They just were here and checked everything out... all still working great.... and free inspection as well. Can't beat that... they just checked everything out, made sure all was working fine, mentioned a few things I could do for added services but was not "pushy" by no means on the sell... just let me know what was available. Excellent customer focus, followup and support. I am extremely happy I went with these folks.... as I said, my experience has been top notch.

I called Alliance for quote on encapsulation. They quoted me for 6 mil, but I opted for 12 mil (Alliance did not up-sell me, I wanted 12) so they generated another quote. The price was extremely fair, and so we scheduled the job. Workers came out on time, removed old insulation, filled some cracks, and encapsulated the crawl space. The job was done excellently, and professionally by a great team. Would recommend them highly! Very responsive, no sales gimmicks or up-selling. Just an honest company with hard workers doing a good job.

Conclusion: I recommend the crawl space encapsulation (great for storage) but not the exterior crack repair. exterior crack repair = $530 x 2 = $1,060. (Read from bottom up.) May-June 2014 - Since the remaining seepage was coming in the front of the house facing the village main line, I approached it as a plumbing problem, not suggested by Permaseal. I hired Four Seasons who installed a pump system in my front yard, another $10k, and problem solved. 4/28/14 to do "warranty service" in the spillover. Service by Tony Lira: He did the water hose test again, no seepage again. Recommended that they expose & dig out the base of the south wall from the inside. Only from the inside can they see the exact source of the leak, plug it, & install drain tile. Next step: Call for an estimate. 2/20/14 - More seepage, as much as before the service. 2/1/14 service call with Marco Botello. They need to redo the spillover. 10/31/13 - Got seepage. 10/30/13 - Installation completed. Hard rain started that night and continued through the next morning. 8/8/13 estimate from Jim Montalbano, $9,819.30, down pmt $1,968. This covered crawl space encapsulation, crack repair (2 exterior, 1 interior), & a super sump pump system. Different company: $2k to upgrade my electrical service for the pump's dedicated outlet. I called for an estimate late May 2013 and was scheduled July 8, their next available appointment. My house is tri-level, i.e. half of the "basement" is finished, half is a crawl space. They sent out a guy who was nice but seemed very unprepared. He found a crack in the wall of the unfinished crawlspace but had no idea what to do about the finished part since he could not see behind the drywall or the foundation wall on the exterior. I never got his estimate.

Estimate was provided by John Roberts @ 866 837-9227 on July 11, 2012 and work was scheduled for Aug. 8, 2012 to be completed in 1 day. However, when the workers showed up they said it would take 2 days and I had to take a day off from work. The workers seemed very proficient, professional, and the work went quickly with minimum fuss or problems. After completion I checked out the crawl space and it really looked good, bright and spotless. I was thrilled that I could finally use the area for storage. The new support jacks looked great and very sturdy as my old ones had deteriorated and rusted out causing some settling. It was months later when I finally got around to moving items down there for storage. I noticed that the floor of the crawl space was very lumpy and I banged up my knees as I moved around (3 1/2 ft crawl). This seemed odd to me as the crawl floor before encapsulation was screening material (small tiny stones or rocks). The lumps in the floor were considerable and I couldn't understand why. The brochure provided mentioned that Perma-Seal would rake the floor before installing the lining. The only reason I can think of for the lumpiness is that they tried to spread around the dirt (clay) that was dug up for the footings for the support jacks (6 jacks). I really wish they would have done a better job in evening out the floor as it is a real pain (literally & figuratively) in moving around down there. I would have given them 5 stars if it were not for this particular problem. The original crawl floor might have been uneven, not to mention dirty and disgusting, unfit for storage, but it did not have huge lumps all over. There was also some minor water entry during a really bad rain storm recently, due to a spot they forgot to seal around my submersible water pump entry. I am generally happy with their work and would have them do more but I would inspect more carefully before signing off. The sump pumps have been working flawlessly and drainage to my culvert excellent without freezing during the winter months. The SaniDry system (smaller system for crawl spaces) might not be powerful enough to keep humidity below 50% during wet weather. I would recommend Perma-Seal to others but I would watch them carefully before you sign off.

It only took three days since the company sent a lot of workers. They were very hardworking and neat. At the end of the job they showed me before and after pictures so I could evaluate the work. They put an underground pipe with a bubbler in my front yard to remove the water accumulated in the new sump pump (which included a battery backup) and they disturbed the existing vegetation very little. When I looked in the basement, they were so neat, I would not have known they had done any work. I got three estimates for this job and they were not only the most reasonably priced, they also itemized each phase of the job in case I only wanted to do part of the work. I would highly recommend this company.

Highly recommended. We had a rodent problem in the crawl space due to a gap in our foundation which communicated with the garage. This also allowed freezing air in. Jason came out promptly and gave me an estimate. He was very honest in his assessment and a competitive price in comparison to other estimates. His crew came out and banged out the project around our schedule. He even gave us real time updates via text of their progress and when it would be safe for us and the kids to return home. After installation, we noticed a small water leak from a pipe. Jason responded immediately to our texts and scheduled to come investigate the problem to see if it was related to a vent he placed for conditioning (which it was not but a small leak we had the entire time!). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company due to their excellent customer service and quality/pride in their work. Avoid the 'big businesses' and go with these guys. Also, our 1st floor kitchen in den are much warmer and there has been zero rodent activity!

We had a dirt floor crawl space and a concrete floor crawl space in our home. Both spaces were very cold and nasty looking. We wanted a solution that would help us become more energy efficient and at the same time create some additional storage space. We initially met with a Perma Seal consultant who walked us through what could be done. He suggested we start by installing insulation in both spaces-which we did through another vendor-and then Perma Seal would install their vinyl liner into the space. Long story short the liners are great-the spaces are bright, clean and dry and we now have a lot more storage space.

Recent Review: I liked Tom. We got a few estimates and ended up not doing the work because it was so expensive. We decided to go another route. Their estimate was comparable to the other companies. I liked him the best of all the guys that came in. He wasn't pushy and he gave us an estimate in writing that same day. He was informative. I would consider working with them. He was very professional.

Recent Review: Acey is top notch. Honest, reliable. Everything went great! Our house has been bone dry since he helped us out. Other plumbers wanted to charge me thousands to replace both pumps. Acey found a fuse that made the back up pump work again, and replaced primary. He is the best!!

Recent Review: I got bids from 3 companies to concrete crawl space. Two companies spent most of their time cutting down each other and their prices were $1,000 - 2,000 higher than Accu-Dry. Accu-Dry preseneted a simpler approach that handled the basic problem. Crews arrived on time and completed most of job in one day - they had to come back a few days later to do insulation after concrete dried. Crawl space looks good and sump pump has handled recent rainfall without any problems.
