    John K. of Montpelier, VA

    Customer Testimonial

              Tony Williams was great. Awesome would be a good word for him. He was a pleasure to meet, very experienced, thorough and he explained everything. The experience was good all the way around. The crews were great—I have nothing bad to say about them. The 3 man crew who did the liner worked non-stop until the job was done. Very polite. The 2 man crew, David and Moe, were very polite, personable, and at all times very pprofessional. I'd give them an "11." But you can oly go up to "10." They left eveything clean. I can already tell a difference in the humidity in the house, which was a reason why we had this encapsulation done. And yes, I will be a reference.

    Amy K. of Mechanicsville, VA

    Customer Testimonial

              We are very pleased with the work that has been completed. I have not crawled under there (and won't likely) but the plumber, the inspector, and a couple of men on staff have checked it out and all report the good work. Thank you and your mechanics for making me look good at my job! On a personal note, I worked in radio for 25+ years prior to coming to current employer. Selling adertising was our product, however, I'm a firm believer that "word of mouth' is the best form of advertising. I can tell you I will be 'advertisint' for The Drying Company. You have ALL been great to work with. Thank you Kevin, Tony, Sylvia, and everyone else involved in making the project go seamlessly for us.

    Customer Testimonial

              Tony: You had met with my husband regarding our two bay windows (master bedroom and master bathroom) and trying to solve our “cold” rooms attached to these bay windows. You suggested an excellent possible solution and this past Friday, a team of 2 men from your firm came out and completed the work you had suggested. I am e-mailing to tell you that your solution has significantly contributed to what we now deem a problem solved! We cannot tell you how astonished and thrilled that the temperature in our master bedroom and master bathroom has been 70 degrees since last Friday and we have removed the space heater that we’ve been using. We both send you our sincere thanks for your thoughtful proposed solution - it has made a tremendous difference and we could not be happier! In the 18 months since we have moved in, you were the only one to even take a closer look at the floor of the bay windows and clearly, this was a real part of the problem with letting cold air into these spaces. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We are also enjoying having the hygrometer installed in the crawl space to monitor things there. We wish you much-continued success

    Customer Testimonial

              I always thought I had a drafty house. Tony was able to provide some solutions. My friend even came to my house and commented how even the heat was now. I came in as a single person and didn’t know a lot about crawl spaces, so I had to rely on what he told me. I really liked Tony and would refer work to him. I would refer anyone at anytime to your company. If 5 stars is the highest rating, I would give you 6 stars!

    Lou of Williamsburg, VA

    Customer Testimonial

              Several years ago The Drying Company worked on my house after a leakage problem and as part of the repairs installed a contained system in my crawl area. At the time the service was conducted under the supervision of Tony Williams. He did an exceptional job and I thoroughly enjoyed his attitude and dedication to the project. He was especially considerate of our concerns over the water damage and assured us that all would be well with repairs and the new system. Since then, we have had several service men go down into the crawl area and all have been complimentary of the work done. Last week I had requested an inspection from Orkin for termites and when the serviceman went into the crawl area would not certify that it was free of infestation because the membrane up the sides of the walls did not leave sufficient block area exposed. I called Tony and he discussed the situation with the Orkin rep. Tony offered to come and expose a portion of the block and header plate so the inspection could be made. The Orkin rep never responded. Tony recommended another pest service company, came out today to expose the area for inspection, which allowed the inspector to confirm that my crawl area is free of infestation and any dampness. I would like you to know that the response I received from Tony and his concern that I be satisfied with the work done by The Drying company was very much appreciated. You have a very professional and conciencious employee in Tony and as a result a very satisfied customer. If I can ever be of assistance in providing a testimonial to the work of The Drying Company, please do not hesitate to ask.

    TJ of Yorktown, VA

    Customer Testimonial

              Tony was phenomenal is his response. I didn’t call him a lot, when I called or emailed he responded quickly. I can’t say enough about him, he made the whole experience smooth. I felt like he was genuinely trying to help me solve my problem and not just make a sale. The guys that came out were helpful- no fooling around on the job. They shared information with me and answered questions. You adjusted the estimate when you realized a piece of equipment wasn’t needed. That means a lot because I’ve dealt with a lot of companies that weren’t focused on saving me money. You didn’t try to keep the price up. You guys were genuinely open and honest.
