Estimate needed for crawl space insulation.
East Clay Street in Richmond
I purchased this approx. 150-year old Queen Anne Victorian house in September and have concerns about energy efficiency, mild mold growth, and what appears to be the start of a camel cricket infestation. We are looking to hire a company to encapsulate and condition our crawl space, including: 1) removing debris from the crawl space floor and checking for additional leaking pipes or other concerns, 2) removing the mold growth present (which we believe to be limited to one area) using a bleach scrub and, perhaps, mold-resistant paint, 3) replacing plywood boards that have been damages by mold growth (as necessary -- we believe that there are only a few, and we don't know what our options are with respect to this), 4) building three water-tight access doors (to replace three rotten pieces of wood currently used) and a fourth trap door to the main floor (where there is currently a hole), 5) sealing the crawl space and making it water-tight, and 6) installing a radon mitigation system. We had a couple of leaking pipes, which we've now fixed, and an old, dual zoned furnace and AC system that we replaced with a high efficiency heat pump this week (completed 12/15/2017). Our new system includes a dehumidifier and a high quality air filter (for VOCs and particles down to something like 50 nm). We would like to use this system to condition the crawl space, and it is sized appropriately for this goal. Our HVAC installers have agreed to return after we've finished the crawl space to service the crawl space area with our heat pump. We may have addition projects later that may involve rerouting piping in the crawl space, so we do not want to completely eliminate access to the crawl space area. Because we will be breathing air from the crawl space with our heat pump, we also want to make sure that dust, debris and mold will not be concerns. Let me know if you're interested and able to do this job! If so, we may also be interested in hiring you to make add insulation to our attic. Thanks, Zoe
