Crawl Space Repair Contractors in Virginia
Although, in some states, the building code still requires that crawl spaces be vented, Virginia has made a significant change to their building code for crawl space ventilation. According to the change, crawl space ventilation openings are not required where exposed earth is covered with a continuous vapor retarder or barrier.
Your home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. A dirt, vented or unconditioned concrete crawl space under your Virginia home is a very bad idea. The earth has very high humidity in the soil. The underground water vapor moves easily into the crawl space and upwards into your house environment. If your crawl space begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, this will extend to every part of your home. In addition, A home with a dirt crawl space costs more to heat or cool and can raises your heating and cooling cost 15% (to 25%) every month. So, fixing your crawl space is one home repair you can't afford not to make.
Fortunately, there is an ultimate solution to dirt crawl spaces - The CleanSpace System - developed by Basement Systems, the world leader in dry basement and crawl space technology. The CleanSpace Encapsulation System completely stops moisture penetration. It's also tough enough for you to crawl on it and to use your crawl space for storage without worry of putting holes or tears in the liner.
Whether you live in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Arlington, Richmond or Newport News, we have our Virginia crawl space contractors available to install the CleanSpace system in your neighborhood. Call toll free at 1-800-638-7048 or contact us online and you are on your way to a dry, energy-efficient crawl space - and a home that is less expensive, more comfortable, and healthier to live in.

Just had Dry Zone take care of my basement water issues and also shore-up a wall with a big crack in it. Everyone was very responsive and professional, making this a very painless process. My basement felt dry in a matter of hours. My only regret is that I didn t call them sooner.

When unforeseen problems arose during installation, no surcharges or extra fees were added to our bill to cover the increased work to complete the installation. We were impressed with the integrity of your company for this.
Your company did so many things right that just make for excellent professionalism and good business.
1st and foremost to me is that all items were done when they said they were going to be done. Every date and time I was told people would be on site, people were on site. I don't mind waiting 7 weeks to get you here if you tell me it will be 7 weeks to get there. I don't mind waiting 2 weeks for materials if you tell me 2 weeks. (I added on to my original order so this was my fault). If it's 2 weeks and you tell me 3 days, all respect is lost.
At all 3 stages the crews were professional and had intelligent knowledgeable people on site. This gives a very important sense of ease to me as a client. It is tremendously frustrating when a professional salesman gives an estimate but later Tweedledee and Tweedledum who can't think for themselves, understand anything not on their piece of paper or is part of another stage of the process, or GOD FORBID be able to make a decision show up. Being able to have all discussions with a pro as questions or concerns appear throughout the process is terrific.
Another item that impressed me greatly was how much painstaking effort was put in by both install crews to keep messes to a minimum, protect my property, inform me of concerns (and in my old, not standard built house, I had no doubt all kinds of anomalies would arise) as they occurred. It showed me they really cared about keeping me happy by protecting home.
Furthermore both crews worked like clydesdales, really passionately with a strong sense of pride in their work. My hat is off to Adam Hill and his men who started extra early, worked late into the night, and got everything done with a great attitude and professionalism from start to finish.
I'd recommend Tarheel Basement Systems to anyone and rehire you again in a heart beat.
I am extremely pleased with how everything turned out. Thank you so much.
Call anytime for a reference or recommendation.

The installation crew was very fast and personable. I had to move by HVAC unit for the work to be performed and they were more than happy to work with me to ensure that I didn't have to leave the unit ouf of commission for any length of time.

Comment: Damp crawlspace and just had mold remediation completed, vapor barrier and insulation replaced. Half of the HVAC duct work runs through the space and condensation is forming on the supply duct. Am planning on having the ductwork re-insulated and sealed up but I believe the current vented situation is causing too much moisture in the crawlspace. Would like an estimate for fully enclosing and encapsulating the space.
