Recent Review: My crawl space had a strange smell, kind of like mildew only really strong. FSM came out and inspected the crawl space (on a Saturday) and gave a thorough explanation of what was causing the smell (mold, actually) and what needed to be done. They put me on their schedule and also on standby in case someone cancelled. The installation crew was great. They took about 4-5 hours to install the Vapor Loc Elite system in my crawl space. Before they got started they used a spray to kill all of the mold. There wasn't any bad smell from the spray or the vapor loc system they put in place. They even went above & beyond by taking pictures of some plumbing issues (2 water pipes and a sewer pipe that were in bad shape) they discovered that needed immediate attention that I wouldn't have known about otherwise. I would definitely recommend them. It was a bit expensive, but well worth it.
Recent Review: Everything went well! I received a call back promptly after leaving a voice mail. Service was scheduled for that day and Bud showed up promptly. He was friendly, professional, and extremely competent. I will use Apollo again in the future. The price for the service was very fair, and the work was completed quickly.
Recent Review: We collected 5 bids for our crawl space work (minor fungal cleaning, floor liner, dehumidifier and sub-pump). Dry Otter’s bid was in the middle to higher range, though they seemed to have a better handle on what needed done – no more/no less. Couple points: On the front-end Dan provided a thorough estimate of what work needed done; Sterling and his crew were very professional and responsive to my questions and requests; Kevin came near the end of the project and inspected the work with me – he answered all my questions and also had the crew come back (within a week) to make minor adjustments; and lastly – throughout the process Lorissa (office coordinator) kept in contact with me on both scheduling and billing. Would hire/recommend again.
Recent Review: Fantastic!! We had a large project involving other contractors, which they coordinated. The first crew to show up was the pier crew. They were very professional and personable. They explained everything from start to finish and kept me in the loop throughout the process. They leveled our kitchen, which had a large sag. The next crew to arrive was the encapsulation crew. They covered the crawlspace from top to bottom and installed a dehumidifier with a moisture meter we can read in the house. Our crawlspace is now the nicest, cleanest, whitest and largest room in the house! I take my shoes off when I go under the house now. It's so nice, because it's now a controlled environment and I can work under there without having to change my clothes when I come out. Moisture has been reduced from 83% to as low as 30%. This improvement with the mold remediation, new HVAC and duct work, and air cleaner created an allergy free environment in our home. It was by far the best home improvement we have made so far (and we've made a lot!!!). I definitely recommend this team and will use them again if needed for any future projects.
Recent Review: Logan Steele came out to the house the day after we called. He was right on time, and very professional. He advised us about installing a powered vent in a crawl space. His advice was right on, and he saved us quite a bit of money by explaining that what we wanted to do was not a viable option. We will certainly use this company again.
Excellent job by a crew of 4 very hard working guys. They spent most of the time from 9am to 7 pm under the house. Everything that was in the crawl space, and didn't belong, was removed and hauled away. Workmanship was great! I would hire them again and recommend them to anyone.

ADry Otter Waterproofing Inc
I have used their competitor in the past for a previous house. They were much more expensive, and they installed a inferior dehumidifier from Sears that did not last. Kevin, the owner, came out during the work and made sure his staff were doing quality work. He installed a commercial dehumidifier. We had to redo duct work for our hvac system. They came back in to redo the duct work area without any complaints and they never charged me for it! It wasn't his fault they came back; the duct work hadn't been installed correctly when the house was built. He is very responsive. His guys were very professional, cleaned up well, let us know when they were leaving and they worked hard while they were here. They were very pleasant and it was a nasty job! I would highly recommend them!

A1ST CLASS HANDYMAN SERVICES INC
Overall, the experience was a good one. John and his partner Scott did an excellent job. I feel like I got more than I paid for. Not only did they install the lattice work, but they put metal cheesecloth backing behind it to keep out all kinds of critters. They were quick, professional, and fairly priced. I highly recommend him.

ADry Pro Foundation and Crawlspace Specialists
They were professional. They were very quick to work with. We were able to negotiate prices with them. The advantage of going with them is that they give you a lifetime warranty which nobody else does. Based on my experience I would recommend them and use them again.

CHEY! I KNOW A GUY
We were waiting a long time for him to come out so we could make a decision. He came out to inspect the job and he never called back with a price.
