Recent Review: It's great! Workers were pleasant, conscientious and polite. Worked very hard and got the job done in two days (making two separate trips). I would highly recommend this company to anyone! Salesman was Marty. He was very helpful and kind. We truly enjoyed meeting him.

It supports everything else – walls, windows, floors, doorways, roof – so when your foundation is damaged, it can cause serious problems throughout your home. Like most things in life, your foundation is subject to environmental stress. Expanding and contracting soil, excessive moisture and inadequate drainage are some of the most common threats to your home’s foundation. Over time, environmental stressors can cause a foundation to shift, crack or settle unevenly. And homeowners often miss early warning signs of foundation damage. Homeowners spend about $4 billion annually stabilizing faulty foundations, and those costs may increase as more homes are built in areas known for shifting soil. Understanding risk factors and signs of foundation problems can help you protect your most valuable asset from irreversible damage.

Recent Review: I just bought my house and found out it only had about 3-4 inches of extremely old insulation. I called Insulation Pros and Larry came out immediately to bid the job. Larry explained in thorough detail what needed to be done and how they would insulate my entire attic. He was kind, attentive to detail, and patient as he answered all of my questions. Larry truly cared about my insulation needs as a new homeowner. Mike headed up the installation crew. He explained the installation process and promptly began laying a plastic covering over all floor surfaces and furniture where they were accessing the attic. After the prep work, they immediately began installing the insulation. Upon completion, Mike sent me pics of all the work they had done. It looked absolutely amazing! Mike was very courteous! I guess you could say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree... :) From the starting quote with Larry to the insulation install headed up by Mike, Insulation Pros were absolutely fantastic! Insulation Pros are professional and punctual. Everything was done exactly as explained and everything was completed in a very timely matter. I highly recommend Insulation Pros!! Thanks Larry and Mike! Bless you guys for your hard work! :)

Reviews in Independence to Encapsulate Crawl Spaces
AThe Mold Pros of Kansas City Inc
Excellent service from start to finish. We had several come out to look at our situation and offer mold remediation and restoration services. However, Midwest Environmental Professionals (MEP) was the only company that identified encapsulation as a solution to keep the mold from returning. From all the research I did on the Internet, this was the way to go. The individual from MEP who first came out to view our crawl space was genuine and straight forward. He was also onsite for all the work. In total, four men did the work and they were all highly professional and respectful. All calls and emails were promptly answered/returned and everyone showed up to work when they said they would. The entire process from the original inspection to completion of the job was less than two weeks. It would likely have taken less time if I had responded quicker to get on their calendar. The actual onsite work to remove old insulation, provide mold remediation, and encapsulate the crawl space took two and a half days. I highly recommend this company.

The basement looks good other than the fact that it leaks water like a seive and the didn't wall up the space between the basement they installed and the crawl space so I have a huge gaping hole in my crawl space with no backfill so to get to the crawl space you need two ladders, one to get through the hole and then one to climb down where there is a 3 foot wide 9 foot tall tunnel in my crawl space with the north side completely exposed to the elements which I have tried to fix by using a large rock and covering it with dirt. They also didn't properly line up the egress window with the large double window on the first floor so aesthetically it looks completely off.

ADry Basement Foundation Repair
I WAS INITIALLY UNHAPPY WITH SOME ASPECTS OF THE JOB AND ATTITUDE OF SALESMAN DURING THE PROCESS. EXIT PIPING WAS COMING OUT OF BASEMENT IN A MUCH MORE VISIBLE LOCATION THAN ORIGINALLY PLANNED, AND NO ONE BOTHERED TO INFORM ME OF THE CHANGE BEFOREHAND. THEN I WAS HOME AS I WATCHED THEM BEGIN TO PUT A DRAINAGE PATHWAY RIGHT OVER THE SIDEWALK, AND SHOOTING AT BRAND NEW DECK STAIRS AND HAD TO INTERVENE. WHEN COMPLETED, WATERPROOF LINER WAS NOT SEALED TO SURFACES AND SIDES OF CRAWL SPACE AS I HAD ANTICIPATED. SENT IN CUSTOMER COMMENT CARD AND GOT A CALL FROM COMPANY, WHO SENT OUT THE OWNER OF THE BUSINESS, SALESMAN, AND A CREWMAN TO DISCUSS THE ISSUES I HAD WITH THE WORK. THEY SENT OUT A CREW TO SEAL THE LINER AND FOAM ANY GAPS, ADD ADDITIONAL LINER AND THREW IN A VERY NICE DEHUMIDIFIER FOR FREE WORTH ABOUT $2000. ALTHOUGH THE PROCESS WAS INITIALLY STRESSFUL, THEY GOT THE JOB DONE AND DEMONSTRATED THAT THEY WILL DO WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE YOU HAPPY.

Everything went very well. The technician who came out was very, very helpful. He went beyond the call of duty in removing 3 dead mice from the crawl space for us, too!!

They suck. I ended up asking for a refund, because the handyman called me up and asked me if it was dirty and if there were cobwebs and I said yes and he said that I would need to find somebody else. He refused to come out and do the work. I told him what the job was. I had applied for a VA loan and one of the things that I had to have to get the loan was a vapor space, which is laying down plastic over the dirt in my crawl space. I ended up hiring a guy in my neighborhood, who did it for half the price of what this guy wanted. I would not use them again.

Work was well planned and executed start to finish over a 5-day period. Workmen were skilled and cleaned up after themselves each day and when finished. Handyman Matters completed the work to my complete satisfaction at considerably less cost than I had anticipated.

BDry Basement Foundation Repair
They did a good job as far as it went. Only arguement I had was that they wouldn't give me a warranty on the "curtain' drain which rather indicated they weren't sure it was going to work ! I managed to get a mere 6 month verbal warranty from them eventually. The area they fixed still seeps a bit but is a lot better. I think they are very expensive. I had a sump pump installed in my crawl space a couple of years ago at half their price of $2,300. I think they add a lot to the actual work involved with overheads and commissions to their salesmen who are the first people to come out when you call them. I'd rather meet the guy up front who is going to do the work rather than a salesman type who will try to sell you an expensive deal with lots of fancy books and pictures ! I never got a visit from their structural engineer they are so proud of advertizing. When I asked about this they said I didn't have a foundation problem so I didn't get the expert - although I actually do have a foundation problem which the salesman type they sent out didn't spot ! He didn't even attempt to go into my crawl space and diagnose my real problem which is water pouring through a big crack in the foundation wall......had to get somebody else to do that - not the Dry basement people ! Still have a major flooding problem in my crawl space but will not use Dry Basement to fix it. The work they did has worked (keeping the corners of my house dry) but they still haven't totally solved my problem. Shall not use them again they are far too expensive !

I've been having issues with water in my crawl space. I've already had foundation work done but noticed cracks in some of the blocks. Foundation 1 quoted me $30,000 for repairs including a sump pump, excavating and straightening three walls and water proofing. The salesperson tried to scare me and make me think my foundation wall was about to fall down. Since he came out I've received two other quotes which were both around $10,000. I can't speak to the quality of their work but make sure that you get multiple bids for foundation work and educate yourself because these people will try to oversell you and scare you into unnecessary repairs.
