I could not be more pleased with Summit!! Joe was so helpful to me during a crisis situation where flooding had occurred in my basement. He helped me understand the insurance process and gave me helpful advice even when it was not certain his services would be needed. The company was prompt, flexible, and cleaned up so well after digging a new drain in my basement. Joe went above and beyond, responded immediately to my calls when I had questions and truly saved my sanity during a crisis with my home. Definitely recommend above anyone else!!

Summit installed a partial French drain in a room in my house that was always damp, wet, musty, and regularly had a slick of water in one corner. I was at my wit's end because I could see the previous owner had already tried a French drain. Summit came out, told me right away they could almost certainly fix the problem, and carefully explained what they would do and how it would improve the situation. I could tell the person who did the estimate knew what he was talking about, so I gave it a shot. The crew worked through terrible conditions - rain and cold - and kept on schedule. The quality and thoroughness of the work has far exceeded my expectations. I honestly didn't think they would solve the problem entirely, but here we are with a completely dry room. No musty smell, no water slicks, no damp and moldy conditions. Price was reasonable and bottom line, Summit fixed the problem. I can't recommend Summit enough and will use them again on other projects. 5 stars.

The whole team cares about the service they provide. They do a thorough assessment and offer what they think need to be done. I so appreciated the honesty about what could wait and why versus what was important to do immediately. When working with different areas of service, they had communicated with each other and offered high level care to me. The work done was professional and excellent and fast.

Front area of home has nearly inaccessible crawlspace, all dirt with no insulation. Strong musty odors due to exposed soil. Install 10 mil liner on floor of space, wrap any columns, run liner to walls and secure as best as possible due to clearance limitations. Install R19 in joist bays in front and center sections. Spot treat with spray foam as needed since air flow from outside into crawl space was noted. Recommend conditioning basement with duct from HVAC system to control temperature and provide comfort.

Water moving up under flooring through LVP. Demo 8 x 19 area of LVP and save for reuse. Cannot guarantee the flooring is reusable. Investigate and find source of water entry. Possible entry under bottom plate at wall on front of home or plate under wall at small utility area. Additional remediation will be required. Tentative proposal is to demo, locate source and install companion drain system under floor with lateral run to existing sump.

Clear caulk will be used on the gaps between the additions, front stoop side gaps, the conduit pipe on the left side of the home, hvac conduit leading to the attic space. One of the hvac supply lines have been compromised. This indicated 6 inch line will be removed and replaced with a new 6 inch insulated flex line from a different part of the supply trunk line.. The old connection will be sealed after work is finished. There is no one hundred percent seal out for mice but with a continuous rodent program can Summit control the population of the mice.
