Crawl Space Encapsulation in Henrico, VA

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Henrico, VA

mold removal202023233
This homeowner in Henrico, Virginia had moisture damage and mold growth within their crawl space, and so they contacted us at The Drying Co./ThermalTec for a free estimate. We encapsulated, sealed, and insulated their crawl space, while also killing mold and mildew on all organic materials. The crawl space was transformed from a damp and nasty underbelly to a clean and useable space.

Cool hand Luke showed up on Thursday dressed to kill. Crawled under house for 30 minutes and said he would get back to me on Friday with price. Never heard back from him or his lousy company.

I was able to get an appointment and estimate but could never get the work scheduled. I contacted them twice, to approve and schedule the work but was left hanging. I don't understand why they would want to follow through to do a job.

When I asked him a second time, after another company told me that it would n...

Everything started very good. I received a call the same day to schedule the initial appointment. Matt the salesman was on time and very professional. I had to wait two weeks for the installation, that was not a problem. I was contacted about 2-3 days before the scheduled installation date and I was told that they overbooked some jobs and needed to move the installation one day. I had no problem w...

Overall fine install, had a hiccup with equipment that delayed finishing project two days. Put forth a lot of effort to protect surfaces from over spray/cross contamination. Had appropriate personnel protective gear for the crew of two men. Created a complete air tight envelope for the 2 story shed. Pleasantly surprised over the overall improvement in building structural strength. Area for improve...

Some initial prep information was a bit lacking in detail, which caused rescheduling of work, but went well after that. Insulated crawlspace that was severely lacking insulation from cheap & crappy house builder (HH Hunt). Foam insulation on sides/walls & certain posts/beams, 10 mil drymat on ground, sealed off vents. Workers friendly & professional. Bit pricey but noticeable improvement soon afte...

Great. Arrived when they promised. Sent two very professional men who completed the work on time with little disruption and absolutely no mess. Fascinating equipment and process which totally seals your ductwork, thereby preventing heat/cool air from escaping into the attic. We are experiencing a noticeable difference in the air quality on our 2nd floor after this process was completed.

Although a day late due to their scheduling issues, the crew was totally professional, did a superb job, protected furnishings, and thoroughly cleaned up what is, by necessity, a very messy process. Took three solid days plus a extra day for electrical work. Not cheap, but certainly worth the investment.
