    By Fran J.

    After significant research and other contractor reviews/estimates, I chose The Drying Company to do a job in Feb 2020 that included a moisture barrier, foam insulation, encapsulation, and dehumidifier. I have previously submitted a review for this work, awarding a 5/5! Because I had a back crawl space that needed some duct work tied into the dehumidifier that wasn't anticipated earlier, The Drying Company came out in Nov 2020 to tweak the system to reduce the moisture in both the back and front crawl spaces. Thank you, Chad, for your diagnostic ability, and thank you Steve, for supporting the extra work to make my home drier and healthier. As homeowners we have choices, and an informed homeowner should always do their research and select the contractor that will give them the results they need. I am so pleased to have discovered The Drying Company and have already shared my success story with friends and neighbors. Both my home and I are 70 years old, here's to continued good health for both of us!

              Thank you for everything. The attic has made a huge difference. It's actually cool up there now on hot days. Starting crawlspace work this Friday with your team as well. Just wanted to reach out and say thank you. I know we are in good hands with your crews and I appreciate all your doing for us. Looking forward to the completion of the work and the home comfort this winter.

    Customer Testimonial

              In response to the inquiry about ThermalTec-Drying Co.: We have never done business with a more professional, efficient and reasonably priced enterprise. We had a serious insulation failure caused by the indifference or incompetence of another company, and ThermalTec fixed the problem. The price was excellent, workers appeared when they said they would, they worked quickly and did an excellent job. The general manager, Steve Tetreault, returned to check on the work at least twice.

    Gutter Installation in Toano, VA

    This home had traditional 5-inch metal gutters installed. The gutters often filled with leaves and pine needles, overflowed and pooled water in their garden and around the home. They wanted to check off cleaning their gutters from their chore list for good and protect their garden and foundation from puddling water. We installed the GutterShutter system. GutterShutter is a seamless metal gutter with a hood. The system is supported every 2 feet with a durable bracket that offers support to the front, back, and hood of the gutter meaning the homeowners don't have to worry about their gutters sagging or pulling away from the home.
