Below you will find answers to some of our most commonly asked questions. We will update this from time to time as necessary.
Are estimates really free?
Our consultations and our estimates are free and carry no obligation. Sometimes a homeowner wishes to just get some advice on a project and we are happy to do so whether it is how to start a project or what materials to use. Give us a call and lets see what we can do.
Are all drains really just a french drain?
No. A French Drain has certain elements in its construction that make it unique for certain kinds of applications. Specifically, French drains are used for "slow" or "sitting" water applications. They are completely inappropriate for fast moving water applications like a downspout drain. They use different materials and different practices.
How do I know what kind of Crawl Space system that I need?
What kind of Crawl Space system may be required depends on a number of factors. Most importantly is how persistent the relative humidity is and how much water is penetrating your foundation. Moreover, how long the problem has persisted may also play a part. Some homes need a new moisture barrier. We use DoE guidelines for best practices in our crawlspace work to provide the best results for our customers.
