It’s important to keep a crawlspace dry and clean. Crawlspaces have a significant impact on the health and safety of the rest of the home. There are various companies that offer crawlspace waterproofing services. However, not all companies will provide you with great services.
- They’re familiar with the local area
It’s important to hire a company that is familiar with the conditions in the local area. They should not only be up to date with the local regulations but also understand the physical and climatic conditions of the area.
For example, the company should understand seasonal changes such as flooding or drought. They should also understand local soil conditions and the impact of these changes on foundations in the area.
With this information, the contractor will be better able to design a waterproofing system that suits your particular needs with a view of protecting your home from future damage.
- A good reputation
The company should have a good reputation. A good way to determine this is by reading reviews on the company’s services.
Many crawlspace waterproofing companies post reviews from customers on their websites. Don’t just look at these as they are always positive. Look for independent websites where you can find honest and accurate reviews. These include social media, local community websites as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB) amongst many others.
Find out what other people have to say about their services. Are there any complaints? Did the company respond to the complaints? Was the customer pleased with their response?
Look for a contractor that is willing to design a solution to meet your particular needs. Some contractors take a one-size-fits-all approach. However, it’s important to have a solution that addresses issues such as environmental conditions or building features that are unique to your property. Not addressing these issues could lead to problems down the line.
Avoid contractors that try to push any particular system or solution without considering your property and its features.
- Licensing and insurance
The contractor should be able to provide proof of their licensing and insurance. They should be able to show that they are registered with the local and state authorities. Professional contractors must have the right training and experience and meet other requirements in order to obtain certification from local and state authorities.
Keep these four qualities in mind to ensure you hire a reputable contractor for your project.
