Recent Review: Everyone I worked with at Olshan was very helpful, courteous, and professional. Tim Braswell who came to the house and provided the quote for the job of preventing water from entering and building up in the crawlspace. He advised me on what needed to be done and even provided information on what he would not recommend doing with explanations as to why so that I would have enough information to make a decision when comparing estimates from other competitors. I researched a lot of what he told me and soon realized he was accurate in everything he told me. I called and talked with Kathryn to set up the appointment. She was very helpful in explaining how the payments would work and detailed as to who would be arriving at my house and when to expect them. I decided to go with the installation of a french drainage system and pump. Omar and his team arrived Friday, July 13, 2012 to begin work on cleaning out the crawlspace (removing an old heating/air unit from under the house - which other contractors had indicated could not be removed, removing old piping that was hidden under the old plastic sheet, and removed other debri/garbage that was under the house) and explained everything they would be doing. By miday day they began digging for the placement of the french drainage pipes within the crawlspace, began placing the pipes, and surrounding it with hauled in gravel. The digging and gravel placement continued over to the second day. After the drainage system was in, Omar and his team installed the pump and drilled through the concrete to install a pipe to route all water captured through the drainage system out and away from the house. They were careful to dig through the landscape in a manner where the grass could be replaced with no real visible signs that it had be disturbed. Once this was complete they placed a vapor barrier that covered the entire floor of the crawlspace. Before leaving Omar and his team made sure all of the debri from the crawlspace had been hauled away and that the work area had been completely cleaned. Omar then went over everything they did, showed me everything I would need to know about how the system works, and made sure I was satisified with the job.
