    Work was performed under unrealistic time constraints with confidence and hard work. Mark is communicative and tech savvy making billing and other tasks easier to deal with than most. Did what they said for the price they said. What more do you need?

    I usually don���t write reviews, but this company exceeds expectations. When you spend your hard-earned money, you expect a quality product in return and you actually get it with Kefficient. For a service that is not as noticeable everyday as a shiny new kitchen no one is excited about spending the money on a crawlspace however we could not be more pleased with the results. I only wished I had done it sooner. We interviewed 8 other companies and spent a great deal of time researching mold remediation and encapsulation. We learned a lot during this process and met a lot of nice people. The main takeaway I can offer is not all mold remediation services are the same. Only 3 of the companies we interviewed killed the mold and physically removed it in a safe manner. Mold that is sprayed or fogged to kill it but left in place is still an ���allergen' (that now is covered in chemicals) that can become airborne and produce adverse health effects. It is still considered a contaminated environment by the IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation. Their mold remediation is just the beginning but an all-important step for optimal, healthy indoor air quality. I cannot say enough about their crews. They were polite and friendly. They keep you informed every step of the process. You can easily reach the owner using text, phone or email in a timely manner during the entire project. They use the highest quality products. For example, the crawlspace door is an actual rot proof, custom made door with jambs, a sill and weather-stripping. The attention to detail on the whole project is very impressive. You won���t be disappointed using Kefficient. At a minimum, have Mark come out for the education and a litmus test for the other companies.

    Virginia Foam Insulators, LLC
    Professional company. After doing lots of research I decided to use closed cell foam to insulate the attic rafters in my 60 year-old home. I met with 6 companies in the area that install foam insulation. 3 of them tried to talk me into open-cell insulation, which is an unproven product for my application. Two other companies, both with good reputations, were willing to install closed-cell foam; one of them offered a great price while the other offered a price that was well outside my budget. Then I met with James Kuhn, the owner of Virginia Foam, and we had a very detailed discussion about what I was looking for. His price was not the lowest but I felt he really knew what he was talking about and had done enough closed-cell foam installations to be able to do the job properly (the installation is more involved then open-cell foam). Under challenging conditions (120 degrees plus in the attic) his team did a great job. I liked the work so much I hired them to insulate the addition I just put on my home. This scope included both closed-cell foam and traditional fiberglass batts. Once again they did a thoroughly professional job and left my home spotless. I would recommend the team at Virginia Foam to anyone.

    Shelton's Wildlife Removal
    It went very well! On time arrival at each appointment. The owner patiently answered all of my questions. The price quoted was very reasonable and significantly less than others. Others played on emotions and scare tactics and tried to sell work that was well in excess of what was needed. I strongly recommend this company. They will be the first (and only) call I will make if I need this type of service in the future.

    Huff Construction, Inc.
    Huff performed beyond all expectations. The quality of the work has been the most impressive aspect of the results--for such a large job with so many details we were surprised how perfectly everything turned out. David Huff was extremely helpful throughout the process--offering suggestions when we were undecided about design issues, and giving advice when he thought we were moving in the wrong direction. When he observed work that was not to his satisfaction, he had his team redo it without any prompting from us. David's enthusiasm and energy level were amazing. Although it felt like the project would never end, people we have shown the final project to have been impressed that so much was done in just a few months. David and his team worked hard to keep things moving forward, which was a huge challenge given to scope of the job he did for us. I'm sure we drove him a little crazy as we made large and small changes to our original plans during the work, but he took it all in stride. David Huff and his team did excellent work, and I would definitely use him again. The "trades" he brought in (electrical, plumbing, flooring, media/sound) all delivered with similar quality, were professional and personable. We had very different results from the fireplace vendor and the cabinet/countertop people Huff brought in. Although the final result is satisfactory, both firms made errors through the process that delayed completion, were very poor at communicating with us and Huff about the status of the work, and did not seem interested in our satisfaction. I would suggest people find their own vendors for fireplace and cabinet work and ask Huff to work with them instead.

    Mark and his crew just completed doing a tremendous job encapsulating and repairing my water damaged crawl space. Twice this year I have flooded floors on the lower lever. Mark diagnosed the issues. He pointed out specific problems and how to redress them. He knew about the necessary permits (other estimators did not mention them) and got them in a timely manner. He described the steps involved and the mold remediation process. The work crew (Mark, Sarah, Tyler, Issac(?)) worked diligently and efficiently spending days in the crawl space doing the required work. Everyone was courteous, efficient, and helpful in explaining what they were doing on any given day. The communication with Mark as to schedules and timing and anything having to do with the project was excellent. I would highly recommend Mark and Kefficient for any crawl space or waterproof situation you may have. Mark is the best contractor and his crew the best work crew that I have ever employed for any work.

    I'm getting ready to sell my house and wanted to clean up my crawl space. A year ago I had a new furnace installed and the team doing that work also disturbed the insulation (a necessary move to correctly do the work). Add to that, some moisture and the beginning of some mold activity and now I need work done to clean this up. Mark Keffer came out, looked over what had to be done, then took the time to explain to me in detail what he was going to do to restore my crawl space to where it should be to provide a healthy environment. He and Connie arrived as scheduled and did everything that was promised. I couldn't be happier with the work and the reasonable price. They did a tough job and were extremely personable and professional and even custom built a crawl space door to replace the one that was not in great condition. This is a great company that delivers everything they promise, and more.

    Huff Construction, Inc.
    From our first meeting we were impressed with Dave's forthright, down to earth approach. He understood what we wanted to accomplish and he made it happen for a reasonable price. He offered good suggestions and was always available to discuss the details of the project. We were out of state during the construction but felt we were always in good hands and a phone call away. Any issues we raised were dealt with quickly and fairly. We will continue to use him for future projects.

    VANCE INSULATION INC
    We have a finished loft with an attic area on each side. About 1/5 of our attic had no insulation at all, and the rest was not up to grade. The walls that created the loft had fiberglass insulation on the attic side but no back walls to finish them off; and some framing with narrow openings made it very difficult to access one area of the attic. An outside wall had left-over insulation stuffed randomly over it, some of it just hanging half up/half down. The crawl space had insulation that was in good shape, but the floor liner was thin and gaping. I was concerned about possible mold and had learned a little about liners that go up the sides of the crawl space. Other contractors had given me estimates and explained what they thought needed to be done, although each one was different. Some felt there was some mold in the crawl space and that the insulation would have to be removed, the beams sprayed and insulation replaced. They also recommended I get the liners that went up the sides and said I would possibly need a dehumidifier in the crawl space. Robbie Vance made the most sense, explaining why some things actually needed to be done and others didn't. He was very knowledgable, and seemed sincere in choosing the best options for me even if some would mean less money for him. They reworked the frame work in the attic and laid a narrow walkway to make the back of the attic more accessible (this was all at my request). They removed the insulation that was falling off the outside wall explaining that it really wasn't needed since air was coming in through the eaves and gables anyway and the goal was to insulate the living areas. He said insulating the wall was like putting on a coat and then leaving it unzipped. They used those insulation pieces to fill in some of the attic floor, gaps along the walls and to create a better support to insulation over a sky light. They installed styrofoam board to the all the walls that framed the loft area. Robbie explained that the R-value of wall insulation is contingent on there being a wall and the air pocket created within the walls and the insulation. The fact that there was insulation without a wall meant the R-value of that insulation was misrepresented. Also, wall insulation with a paper backing that's not covered is a fire hazard. Then they blew in insulation to the entire attack to upgrade everything to R-38. In the crawl space, Robbie was astonished at the suggestion someone else had made that the insulation should be removed, the beams treated and then the insulation put back in. If the theory was that there was mold, you would have to assume that there was some mold on the insulation and why would you put the damaged insulation back in. At any rate, Robbie felt there was minimal if any mold and the insulation only needed to be shored up. There was no evidence of water issues, so he felt a new, thicker liner was enough; I didn't need the system that went up the sides. He recommended I get an inexpensive humidity monitor and check the crawl space in the summer. I had noticed other air leaks in the house, including around a door and windows in the garage, where wiring entered the house into a cupboard and from the stoves air vent. The technicians looked at everything and sealed anything they were capable of. The stove vent, evidently, needs someone who works with metal to install a new flap. The technicians were very polite, worked diligently and effectively despite the terrible cold temperatures. They cleaned everything up afterward. I never thought an attic could look so good.

    James came the first time for an estimate and explained in detail what he was proposing to do to encapsulate the crawlspace. He came back a second look because we had a special situation with our crawlspace door. We were originally looking a few weeks out for the job but they called up and came a couple of weeks earlier because an opening freed up. I was not at home when they arrived and they had finished and left by the time I came home. Everything was cleaned up and they even took away 2 bags of leaves that I was going to set at the curb the next morning. Our crawlspace now looks nice and we are happy with the job. I found them easy to contact and responsive to our questions.
