"In regards to overall quoting and pricing execution of home energy efficiency work (insulation/air sealing and inspection work) I do think this company does good" work. I was originally referred to
Sullivan from a 3rd party home energy audit contractor who noted I had very leaky air ducts from the mid 90's construction. They have improved the air sealing in my 3rd floor office, conditioned the crawlspace as well as sealed the air ducts in the home. The work was done in a timely fashion for a fair price. I had them quote for an HVAC unit and this is where I do not feel comfortable recommending the company to others. Simply put, although I feel the owner is very competent, he isn't the guy in the field. I do not have confidence in the technician he continued to send to my home, despite our continued requests for a different technician and my recent analysis by a 3rd party confirms our suspicions. On the initial install, the technician was not complete in finishing the insulation of the refrigerant lines, things I caught and then they did correct. That's the problem, we were constantly finding issues rather than feeling comfortable the work was done correctly, and the owner is blindly putting his faith in this guy's skills rather than actually auditing the work being done. The unit installed has been cooling ok, but the refrigerant line was condensing water in the wall causing a great deal of condensation to enter my crawlspace and within drywall. Leaving nasty drywall stains in my garage as well. Rather than diagnosing the problem, the technician first assumed it was an insulation problem, and squirted about a quart of foam where the refridgerant lines entered the attic concluded it when that didn't fix it, they concluded old condensation drain pipe was broken and we needed to install a condensation pump. The owner assured me in writing I was on the schedule, and then they never showed. This was after a number of disgruntled emails and phone calls from me concerned about the water in the wall and crawlspace while attempting to get on their schedule which they were pretty much terrible calling back until you sounded angry with them? I had another HVAC party out to review the issue. sure enough there is no leak or issue in the condensation drainline, checked by physical test and inspection. but the issue is due to the refridgerant lines condensing as I originally stated. The reason the lines were condensing is the reason why I will never recommend this company to anyone looking for HVAC work. The system had been over charged for over a year and the air handler switches not configured correctly in the original installation, not configured to variably blow the air, something again I'd expressed concern to the owner that it wasn't setup correctly. Use them for air sealing and duct sealing, but for anything else. Go elsewhere.

-Karen M.

and Team, I would like to thank you and your team for the excellent service and support rendered during a crisis time for me regarding" my crawlspace problems. The area is no longer cold, which caused pipes to freeze and burst leaving water all over the crawlspace. Never have I met an owner of a company as compassionate as
. This company was God sent, their kindness and work ethics will never be forgotten. I look forward to a continued working relationship with bone dry and will always highly recommend them. Sincerely,

-Katherine K.

It’s easy to do, but forgetting your crawl space can have plenty of negative consequences for the rest of your home from poor air quality to high energy bills.

Angie's Answers

Mold in a basement is a common problem. My company helps people with this every day. Some of the answers you received were helpful but not all the information is correct. First, you need to eliminate the two main ingrediants that mold needs to survive. The first one is water intrusion. This is a must. I am assuming you have no water intrusion as you make no mention. The second componant that needs to be eliminated is moisture. Moisture is also humidity. Basements need to be kept airtight in the summer months. Some folks have posted that you need air flow in your basement. Nothing could be furthur from the truth. When you open any windows for example, not one micron of air goes out of the basement, Warm humid air is sucked into the basement. Houses suck air into the basement and it meets the cool surfaces and skyrockets humidity. The windows must be kept closed and a dehumidification device installed to ensure humidity stays below 60% humidity. The dehumidifier should be energy star rated and purchasing a seperate humidity guage is a must to monitor the unit's progress. We like to keep our customer's basements at 50% humidity. This eliminates the smell that is active mold spore growth. Once the water and humidity is brought under control. Remove the organic materials that have mold on them. Walls, sheetrock and studs that have been affected. Follow the advice of previous posts as you must ensure that you do not affect the rest of the home. Once removed, install new walls using as much inorganic material as possible. We also install vapor barrier over the walls and seal the floors to stopwater vapor transmission into the basement. Poly plastic is not a acceptable vapor barrier. It is not "zero-perm" and will still allow moisture transmission. It will also crack and break into pieces over the years. A PVC liner rated "zero-perm" is the correct product in this application. Depending how large the basement is and if it is sectioned off will determine the dehumidifier strength. We use the Santa Fe line of dehidifiers as they are super energy efficiant and work like a dehumidifier on steriods. I hope this helps and I wish you the best in Basement Health!

Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?


It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result.  It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues. 


Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.




Basement Waterproofing reviews in Richmond


My crawlspace was retaining a lot of water and moisture. I have tried different measures over several years and nothing seemed to work. I called several other companies before reaching out to

came out to give me an estimate and he was very professional and knowledgeable. He talked to me about what needed to be done and what would be the best solution. The workers came in a couple of weeks and were very friendly and professional as well. It was a very dirty job but they kept an upbeat attitude the entire 4 days. They removed all the debris from the crawlspace from previous contractors. Dug the trenches, repositioned the sump pump, put down new plastic, and sprayed for mold.

provided a great service and I would recommend them to anyone with crawlspace issues.
- Jessica J.

They were very professional , friendly and they did an excellent job. We called them a few years later panicked during a storm because we thought our sump pump was not working (it was) and they actually offered to come over to help us. They were able to help me over the phone. I highly recommend this company.
- Cynthia S.

First of all, they were cheaper than some of their competitors and gave a great estimate. They finished the work on time. I only write reviews for people that have done an outstanding job or poor job. They did an outstanding job!

Here is the real story: My husband accidently broke an HDMI cable that was running from our new TV to the other side of the house in our "media closet." The wires for the TV and speakers run all underneath the house through our crawlspace. Of course, my husband and I debated who was the lucky one to crawl under the house to fix the wires and replace the HDMI cable. I lost the fight due to my husband's clausterphobia and grabbed my flashlight. I crawled under the house and was shocked at how clean and dry the crawlspace was. This was months after the work was done and everything was really dry (even though it just rained). Also, I didn't smell any mold or mildew! The original issue was resolved and you couldn't even tell there was standing water in our crawlspace for who knows how long. I feel so much better that the issue was resolved.

I have already recommended this company to a few friends. Specially those buying a new house that has the same issues mine had.

- Anna H.

It worked perfectly. It saved me the money from having to replace my hardwood floors. They were very good. I thought their pricing was a little high but I don't have anything to compare it to, so it was probably pretty fair. They were working in the house for about 10 days so I guess it was pretty labor intensive.
- Thomas V.

The guy was nice and professional for the most part, but due to the reasons I mentioned - I decided not to go with

may be fine for someone with a higher budget that has a more profound water issue in their basement. But I felt they just didn't provide a solution that was inexpensive and practical for my situation. In addition, the up selling of the other products and the negative comments about other basement waterproofing companies just frankly made me feel a little bad about using

- Mike H.

They have really good customer service. They came out and explained in detail everything they would be doing. The project was completed on time in 2 days. I would recommend this company to others.

I was promised a Friday date for the work. I had made arrangements for my four animals to be boarded at the vets on that day so that they wouldn't be stressed by the noise. Service manager called Thursday and said that they were running late on a job and that they would not do my job until Saturday. On Saturday, the prep team and crew arrived late and there were two crew members, not three as there should have been. I was told by the salesperson that the outside drain pipe would not be visible. When the crew members were working on digging outside, I expressed concern about the width of the digging and how much of my grass was being torn up. I also stated what I was told by the salesperson that the pipe would not be visible. Not only was the pipe visible, but they had put a large cement structure at the end of the pipe. Also, they left cement footprints all over my driveway. They finished after dark. They had to come back several times to repair/fix things.
- Elizabeth C.

When they did the work they damages the door jam and actually have to come back and re route the exit for the pope because it was done wrong the first time. They informed me that they would come back and fix everything and they did. But they were very hard to get hold of when I tried to call. The only reason that I would hire them again is because there are not a lot of companies in this area that provide this service.
