These guys did great work. I spoke to four different highly rated crawl space businesses and I decided on Summit. They listened to my concerns and worked with me to find a solution to address it. I had them remove and old and poorly installed sump pump and put in a new one. What sold me on them was they were incredibly knowledgeable about every part of the process and could expertly explain every step. From the water cooled pump, to the size of the pipes they would use to the best place to discharge the water they expertly explained everything. I highly recommend anyone looking for quotes to do work on there crawl space to add Summit to your list.
