The owner Doug Holsinger came out within a day of initial contact. Doug spent an hour and half crawling in every crack and cranny of our old home's crawl space. He took pictures, identified problems and explained everything perfectly. Clearly this was the most professional of the other contractors we had bid, but also the most expensive. We did not respond for a few weeks as we thought about the pros and cons with going with a less expensive contractor, but finally Doug's obvious professionalism and the good Angie reports won us over.
When we called Doug and told him he had the job, he came back over the next day to confirm everything and go over the job with us again. They began the job the following week. His gang was clean and professional and clearly enjoy their work. The job took one day longer then expected, but they did several things not included in the bid and we where so happy with the work we were witnessing that it did bother us a bit.
I can not emphasize how professional these guys are, they cleaned up so well every day they even took some of our garbage from a remodel job we are doing at the same time. They tied wires back up, removed old pipes and non-functioning old heater ducts all not part of the original bid. It is not fair to compare what other crawl space contractors do as it is like comparing apples and oranges, or more appropriately a Porsche to a VW bug.
The crawl space seriously looks so nice that I invite my friends when they come over to check it out. Who shows off their crawl space to friends?..... I do, now!
