    I researched what would be the best use of my money, because I'm on a fixed income. Tyler came out and did an itemized list of what to expect with the project. Other companies told me they not remove old insulation and vacuum it out. But Tyler did. Thank Tyler. I was so impressed with Tyler and his mannerisms. His momma would be very proud. As for the crew, when you find a millennial is polite, that's really something. I felt their momma's would be really proud. They acted old school. I've never seen young people work so hard. They didn't come down from the attic. They went through 3 quarters of the attic in one day. They even went across the lawn with a magnet roller to catch nails. It was perfect all the way around. I've been telling my neighbors. When a company does me wrong, I tell everybody. And when a company treats you right, you're supposed to reward them and get the word out.  I am thrilled and excited about the completed job. It is fantastic. My attic is properly sealed, vented and has the newest insulation. Everyone was polite, courteous and considerate.  I love this company’s work! COMMENTS she posted on the Better Business Bureau website:I was completely satisfied and thrilled at my experience with the Drying Co. The contractors team headed by Eric worked diligently and professionally to prepare my attic for insulation headed by Chris. The assistants for the contracting team and insulation team were all polite, considerate, friendly, and hard working to get their job done. They were thorough in the process and clean up in the most expeditious time possible. I can honestly say that this project was the best experience I have had in 17 years of jobs done in my house. Thank you Tyler for a job well done.

    Basement Waterproofing in Richmond, VA with WaterGuard, SuperSump, and CleanSpace

    This homeowner had concerns about water entering their basement, especially during the heavy rainfall the Virginia Peninsula and Richmond have been seeing. The solution was to install a complete basement waterproofing system. CleanSpace was installed covering the below-grade portion of the basement walls to direct any water infiltration into the drainage system. The WaterGuard Drainage System was installed to collect any water entering the basement that was directed downward by the CleanSpace and direct it toward the SuperSump System. The SuperSump System is a 1/3 hp sump pump, that pumps water out of the basement and away from the home. In these photos, you can see the bottom of the stairs in the basement. The before photo shows staining on the walls and a collection of silt and sediment where the floor meets the wall. these are clear signs that water is entering the basement. Since the basement is used for storage and laundry this poses a threat to the homeowner's valuables and washer and dryer. In the after photo, you can see the dark line of cement around the perimeter of the basement where the WaterGuard system has been installed and the bright white walls that are lined with CleanSpace.

    Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation

    Initially, this crawl space was encapsulated with a 6-mil vapor barrier and R-11 vinyl faced fiberglass insulation. Thhomeownerer contacted us with concerns about an ammonia, or animal urine odor in her home and poor air sealing. 

    Our goal was to remedy the Home Owner’s concerns of foul odors in her home and wasted energy. To achieve this, we installed a 20 mil Clean Space Vapor Barrier on the floor of the crawl space and around the piers. We installed Foamax board insulation on the walls leaving a 3-inch viewing strip for pest control companies to do their inspection. We applied spray foam insulation to the rim and band and sill plate to create an air seal and reduce drafts coming into the crawl space. Finally, we installed a Sani Dry Sedona Dehumidifier, the leading dehumidifier on the market, to pull any moisture that enters the crawl space out.

    This crawl space was originally encapsulated at construction with a 6 mil Vapor Barrier and R-11 vinyl faced fiberglass insulation. The homeowner complained of an animal urine or ammonia odor in their home. This was a result of moisture entering the crawl space through the porous cinder block walls and saturating the fiberglass insulation. 

    We installed a 20 mil Clean Space Vapor Barrier, Foamax Insulation Board, sealed the rim & band and sill plate, and installed a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. This approach will help keep moisture out of the crawl space and control relative humidity.
