Is this estimate reasonable to remove water under house?
We have developed standing water under our crawl space. Our house is in NC in a humid area. We have a pair of dehumidifiers under the house to reduce the moisture level.
When we had the situation evaluated, the company stated that we did not need fans venting the crawl space outward and that because the vents had not been well sealed we were running the dehumidifiers too hard.
250 linear feet of french drain along inside footers
3/4 hp sump pump
6 mil vapor barrier
150 ft. drainage pipe to outside drainage ditch
24 new foundation vents and sealing of vents
The work is expected to take 2 days to complete. The initial estimate was $6780. When he saw our jaws drop, the estimate was reduced to $6,200.
Is this in the ballpark for this type of job? Should it solve the problem?
