Recent Review: Mark came to our house and made a recommendation that was pretty similar to his competitors. Seal-Tite's bid came in significantly lower. All bidders were highly-rated and professional. We had some concerns about the terms of the contract, which Seal-Tite addressed to our satisfaction. The crew was great. Gus, the foreman, was terrific. He asked about every part of the job where he thought we might have a concern. It turns out our footer was several feet lower than anticipated, but Seal-Tite did the extra digging without question. They were careful about debris and the placement of excavated fill. The encapsulation was done first and by the time the rest of the project was done, the musty smell we had previously experienced was mostly gone. We could not have been more pleased with Seal-Tite's performance.

Recent Review: They were punctual and did a great job. Even though their estimate was a little higher, I was certainly glad I hired them and it was well worth it. I would highly recommend them. The crew was friendly and I could tell they were working hard without cutting corners.
Recent Review: Went well. Damage to existing HVAC duct work during demo, and issues with the installed dehumidifier stretched the initial 1 week completion estimate to over three weeks. However there was a long holiday weekend involved. The Drying Company repaired all issues at their expense.
Recent Review: The crew performed the work over three days. This included installing sump pumps, French drains, vapor barrier, and spray foam. They also installed a vent and routed a down spout into the yard. The crawl space under my house is no longer flooding and doesn't smell musty anymore. Whenever it rains I can hear the sump pumps doing their job making me feel better that the water is being managed properly. I would highly recommend value dry to anyone needing any kind of flooding issues.

Prior to the work my crawl space was a wet nasty, rodent and snake infested mess. Afterwards, it was clean, dry, bright and white. The air in the house no longer gets musty. My heating bills went down 25%. I referred the Drying Company to my parents, and neighbors, and they were similarly pleased with the results. Should I relocate, I will never live in another house that does not have an encapsulated crawl space.

Had I not hired Jim to come look at a crawl space of a potential home purchase, we would have bought into a substantial amount of problems. Jim's professional advice was to have a crawl space encapsulated while the sellers were only recommending a band aid fix of installing a small French drain. Jim was straight forward with me and provided an estimate within hours. I'm certainly glad to have had Jim take a look and would definitely use Value Dry for any issues I might have with any future home.

I chose Bay to do the encapsulation in August 2018. Their estimate was considerably lower than the competition and they were basically using the same materials. Art and his crew explained the process , kept me informed of their progress and answered all my questions. Work areas were cleaned up at the end of each day. Removal of existing insulation, old vapor barrier and various debris and installation of new insulation on foundation walls, heavy vapor barrier, dehumidifier and condensate pump were accomplished in a timely and efficient manner according to the contract and local codes. End result is my humid, deteriorated and unsightly crawl space is now clean, sealed and dry. The relative humidity is kept at 50% or less year round. Great job and a happy home owner.

My house is 30 years old. The crawl space held water and rarely dried out. When my sump pump failed they installed at new one under my home warranty contract and when they found a leak in one of the pipes after they completed the job, they let me know so I was able to call my home warranty and have it repaired. They emailed me pictures of the completed work and followed up with me to make sure everything was fine and working well. Although they were suppose to level off all of my crawl space there seems to be a section that was not leveled. That would be my only complaint to date. I feel they completed two jobs for the price of one. Another company was going to charge twice as much for the same amount of work.

Dry Seal did a fantastic job cleaning up and encapsulating my disaster of a crawl space with better materials for much less than their competitor JES. Their service area is also pretty wide since it's 90 miles south from my home to Farmville, VA where they are based. The installers were extremely polite, informative and accommodated all of my requests. They completed the following work to my satisfaction: - removed old vapor barrier, drooping fiberglass insulation between the overhead joists, moldy dryer lint (from disconnected duct), debris, rocks, etc. - vacuumed everywhere removing spider webs, etc. - sprayed all surfaces in my crawl space with Anabac advanced cleaning solution. - installed corrugated drainage piping and gravel inside the foundation walls. - installed a sump pump and drain line away from my house . - installed tough puckered drainage mat to the entire ground floor. - installed 2" thick foil faced closed-cell foam boards to all interior crawl space walls and crawl space door. - installed 20 mil thick fiber reinforced poly vapor barrier over drainage mat and insulated boards all over the floor and up all the walls. - installed an Aprilaire dehumidifier with condensate pump draining into the sump pump and wireless humidity monitor. - installed 2 gfci receptacles for sump pump and dehumidifier. I am extremely pleased with the results and wouldn't hesitate to hire them again. My only advice is to be home during the entire process (which took 4 days for a small crawl space) to answer any questions and to periodically check on the progress (especially before each major installation step) and to address any questions or concerns you may have along the way.

The job went well. We needed to encapsulate the crawl space because the hardwood floors we installed in December of the previous year were cupping, both above the crawl space and in our sun room, which was built on top of an existing deck. The reason we elected to go with The Drying Company was they offered options based on our needs rather than a set package. For instance, rather than telling us that we needed a 20ml liner, they offered a 12ml liner, which was a more reasonable cost and our crawl space did not need a 20ml liner. They also offered spray foaming the crawl walls rather than foam board. They also recommended on their own we consider spray foaming underneath our two sun rooms to better insulated the floors and help reduce the moisture content of the sun room wood floors. The lead time to start our project was 3 weeks. They estimated it would take 3 days to complete the project. The first team arrived as planned and cleaned the crawl space of debris and the old 6ml barrier and then installed the new 12ml vapor barrier. The next day was to be the foam insulation work, however, the foam truck needed an inspection and the work was moved back a couple of days. Once the insulation work started the job was quickly completed. When the existing plywood was removed from underneath the two sun rooms, several boards were broken and replaced with new ones. They removed all the old boards and cleaned the area. The only negative was when they replaced the plywood it was done wrong and needed to be trimmed with a cable saw which was not a clean cut. The company also provided a wireless hygrometer to monitor the temp and humidity in the crawl space. Since we encapsulated the crawl space the humidity has stabilized from the mid 60% to 40% and the temperature is around 65 degrees. We are running the dehumidifier at 40% until we can see the cupping in the hardwood floor relax and the boards go back to their natural state.
