Things to Look Out for in a Crawlspace Waterproofing Estimate Marietta, GA
A damp and dirty crawlspace can be unsettling. Water seeping into your crawlspace can turn it into an unusable space. Crawlspace waterproofing can turn your crawlspace into a usable space, e.g. for storage. It can also improve the air quality in your home and prevent pest infestations. With an encapsulated crawlspace, your energy bills will be more manageable.
One of the first steps of crawlspace waterproofing is getting waterproofing estimates from professional contractors. These estimates will help you determine which contractor to choose for the job. The following are some things to look out for in a waterproofing estimate.
- The solution suggested
There are a wide range of solutions available for waterproofing a crawlspace. One of the biggest benefits of getting estimates from different contractors is that you can compare different solutions and choose the one that best suits your needs.
It is important to note that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Your crawlspace and property are unique. A professional contractor will evaluate your property and provide you with a solution to meet your specific needs. Don’t choose a solution just because it worked for your neighbor’s property. Choose a solution that addresses your unique needs and circumstances.
- The itemized budget
A professional contractor will provide you with an itemized budget as part of their estimate. This will provide costs of different items, including materials, equipment hire and transport, site preparation, hourly labor wages, and cleanup. Go through all the items on the list and make sure you understand what you are being charged for.
Are there items on the list that you’re uncertain about? Contact the contractor to ensure you get it clarified.
- Does the estimate include equipment such as sump pumps or dehumidifiers?
Are you having a sump pump or dehumidifier installed in your crawlspace? Ensure the estimate includes these items. A professional contractor should provide you with a comprehensive solution that ensures you can fully enjoy your dry crawlspace for many years to come. Equipment such as dehumidifiers and sump pumps make this possible.
It is best to have everything installed during the waterproofing process. You shouldn’t have to seek the equipment and a professional to install it later. This can increase your costs significantly.
Be sure to have at least three different crawlspace waterproofing contractors assess your crawlspace and provide you with estimates for waterproofing. This will ensure you settle on an effective and affordable solution.
