Crawl Space Encapsulation isn't something you planned on doing or ever hoped to have to pay for, let's just be honest. Here at Charleston Crawlspace, we refuse to have our feelings hurt because we know we are providing a service that isn't reactionary in nature and very rarely preventative. Getting a crawl space repair estimate isn't quite like surfing the internet looking for a new home or car. It can not only be a hassle and a burden, but it can also cause a lot of unnecessary stress in your life that you probably don't have the time or patience for.
Now that we are on the same page and you know we aren't going to get our feelings hurt that you aren't excited to be talking to us, let's get down to business and give you the information you came here to get.
Fixing a crawl space is a process that has to be followed meticulously. If any steps are skipped you could end up paying dearly down the road in terms of finances, but also in terms of your health. There are a lot of lazy homeowners that choose to take the easy route and simply ignore the problem in hopes that they will be able to ditch the house and never deal with it. For those homeowners that are okay with that kind of business and can sleep at night, that's on them. For the rest of us that would feel obligated to bring up the damaged crawl space to an interested buyer, it's always easier to take care of the problem before it gets out of hand. Like any problem with the human body, the quicker it is looked at and addressed, the less damage you generally have to deal with.
The first step as a homeowner is for you to contact as many crawl space contractors as you possibly can and get free estimates to find out how much does it cost to encapsulate a crawl space. Our advice, which makes no sense from a business perspective, but makes total sense from a customer service perspective, is to get as many quotes as you can. The more quotes you get, the more your risk of getting screwed goes down. At the bare minimum, we suggest you call at least three companies for a crawl space repair cost estimate. After you've scheduled the appointments, take some time and do your homework. Look up "crawl space repair YouTube" and see how the encapsulation process actually takes place. The more you know about the topic, the better price you are going to get because the professional that is giving you a bid is going to quickly see that he's not going to pull anything on you. Which brings another good point that should quickly be addressed. If you feel deep down in your gut that something is wrong or that something isn't quite right, trust your gut. It usually knows better than you do.
After you've spent some time researching and have asked "is crawl space encapsulation worth it" you are now ready to start moving forward in the crawl space encapsulation process.
