I was surprised when he offered to come out for a free estimate on Sunday afternoon on Fourth of July weekend. He arrived a bit later than promised, but did call ahead, and did a thorough evaluation of our crawlspace.
Afterwards he showed us the photos he took and explained the 3 options his company offers - vapor barrier, encapsulate the walls and floor but leave insulation on the crawlspace ceiling, installing a dehumidifier down there, or the gold package - remove ceiling insulation, scrub and sanitize everything, fully encapsulate walls and floors, new foam insulation on crawlspace walls, and cut into hvac ducting to make the crawlspace conditioned just like the upstairs.
We did not receive pricing the same day, but 2 days later by email. Since health and air quality were our main concerns, we chose the gold package. Even after I pointed out that the square footage on his quote was lower than our house, he said he would still honor the quoted price.
He had an opening about 2 weeks later, and his crew showed up on time and were courteous and professional. The actual work took more days than originally estimated, but I was very impressed by Matt's attention to detail. Even when I thought they were finished and things looked great, they spent several more hours making things just perfect. I love the air sanitizing uv light they put in the furnace, and the remote temperature and humidity monitor that allows us to see at a glance that everything is doing ok down there.
It has been about a month since work was completed, and so far temperature and humidity are right where they should be. Overall we are thrilled with the quality of the job that was done, for a very reasonable price. read less

After purchasing two income properties in Durham we wanted to upgrade the crawl spaces, deal with mold and rotting wood issues, damaged insulation, and some standing water. Matt came out and provided a thorough estimate which included tons of photos and a narrated video of the crawl spaces (very helpful as we do not live locally). He was up front and forthright about costs and ways in which we could save money. He put us on the calendar for several weeks out but hinted that if there was an opening he would contact to squeeze us in sooner. Thankfully there was an opening and he followed through with contacting us and completed both properties within about 4 biz days. My crawl spaces went from dark, dank, dingy spaces to bright, clean, and vapor barrier protected. I'm thoroughly impressed as is our property manager. We will definitely be using Matt and his team again for future properties. read lessChad B.

This guy truly eats sleeps and breathes crawl spaces. Every time I talk to him he's got a new idea or thoughts on how to improve the process/technique. He was responsive and gave honest advice that included saving money that I was prepared to spend for additional services not needed. Additionally he came out a few months afterwards and helped us touch up a couple minor concerns to create the perfect dry and clean crawl space. I fully recommend Matt for honest advice and meticulous workmanship. read lessMax K.

With Matt, the experience from the very beginning was completely different in the most positive way. Matt was courteous, professional and not at all pushy. He didn't try to sell me anything I didn't want or need. From his enthusiasm, I could tell immediately that he loves what he does and knew what he was talking about. Well... I hired Matt to seal my crawlspace and I'm very glad I chose him. What a stellar job he and his guys did, far exceeding my expectations. Now instead of a dank, dirty, damp crawlspace, it's clean, completely sealed and well lit. I would recommend Sealedsolution.com to anyone, including friends & family. read lessWesley M.

We contacted Matt for an estimate and he responded right away. After evaluating the crawl space he outlined a plan to complete the work and provided a very reasonable quote. When instructed to proceed he was able to quickly line up a convenient date. He and his crew showed up right on time, had the work completed when projected, and gave me the cleanest tour of my crawlspace I could ever ask for. What stands out for me though, is the level of thoughtfulness in how best to seal the crawlspace, the attention to other details, such as installing an input vent from the outside for the furnace that previously was drawing air from the crawlspace (in code at the time house was built, but no longer in code today), and adding insulation and a air seal to the access door. The final item I wanted to mention is the temp and humidity monitor he placed in the crawlspace that let's us monitor the environment from the comfort of our kitchen. All in all, we are very satisfied with the work, our contacts with Matt and his crew, the responsiveness from start to finish, and the value. read lessT F.

They took on a crawl space that other companies wouldn't. The crawl space was so short that much of it was inaccessible. They made the entire crawl space accessible and cleared up all the mold, insect and moisture problems. They were also great with follow up to make sure our new sealed crawl space was performing as it should. We would recommend Matt to anyone who wants a beautiful sealed crawl space at a fair price from guy that's great to work with. read lessMike J.
