Bryan noticed that some water had leaked in over the liner in the fully encapsulated crawl space of his family’s home.  This wasn’t good news but to make the problem worse it also damaged the ductwork in the crawl space.  


He called a company that quoted a price to put in a new liner and replace the damaged ductwork. The only problem was after arrival the price originally quoted kept getting higher and higher.  At one point the company said they couldn’t even complete all the original work that had been agreed upon.


At Lawson’s we hate to hear these stories, but we were happy that on a recommendation from a coworker, Bryan called us.  While we can’t always foresee every issue we come across, we do our best to do a thorough inspection and account for any sort of difficulties that may arise.  In Bryan’s case everything was VERY straightforward.  


After a thorough inspection we walked Bryan through the steps to fixing his crawl space.  In this case we were focusing on two items:  (1) Fixing his ground water issues, and (2) controlling the moisture level in the crawl space.


On inspection the amount of standing water was alarming so we recommended not only a sump but a full interior perimeter drainage system.  The family plans on staying in the home a long time and wants to make sure that there are no issues again with the ductwork or that mold and microbial growth don't occur.  (A drainage system only takes care of the standing water, not necessarily moisture/high humidity.)  So we also installed our Clean Space antimicrobial liner and a dehumidifier.


We rarely are the least expensive quote when it comes to the work we do, but we were glad that Bryan and his family saw the value in a permanent fix to their problem.  As we already mentioned, we can't forsee every challenge we come across, but like in most of our contracts, the price originally quoted was the price Bryan ended up paying, no hidden or surprise charges.

Custom Home Energy Audits

The best way to determine what the cause of your home's inefficiencies are is by performing a home energy audit. Our custom home energy audit can help us discover the root cause for your home's issues, and while we are going through the house, we can figure out what solutions we can use to permanently fix this. Before we start going through the home, we will sit down with you to see what your primary concerns are, and we will make these issues a priority. Once we have completed the audit, we will talk with you again to go over the results and our findings. Based on what we uncover, we will make recommendations to fix your home and create a more energy-efficient environment you and your family will enjoy for years to come! Contact us today for a home energy consultation. 

Radon Testing & Mitigation 

Radon is a naturally occurring invisible & odorless gas that can have a big impact on the air quality of your home. Radon is also the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoke. High levels of radon gas are commonly found throughout Delaware & E. Shore Maryland and because radon gas cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted the only way to ensure that you and your family are not affected by this dangerous gas is to have one of our experts visit your home and perform proper testing. Radon testing is the fastest & most effective way to ensure the safety of your family. Depending on the results of the test, Lawson Home Services can offer several radon mitigation solutions that will limit exposure to the gas and also ventilate it away from your home. Our radon mitigation methods are highly successful and we always stand behind our work! To learn more about radon gas mitigation and testing call or click today!

Job Stories From Delmar, DE
Blower Door devices measures energy wasting air leaks in Delmar, DE home

All new homes built in the State of Delaware are now required by code to be tested for air-tightness to ensure the home leaks no more than 3 air changes per hour when the home is depressurized to 50 pascals. We realize, of course, these numbers mean nothing to a person untrained in building science, but this measurement is directly related to how well the home retains conditioned air. Conditioned air is that which has been heated or cooled, filtered, and dehumidified. This is essential not only for comfort within the home, but to ensure utility consumption, and the associated costs, are kept to a minimum. 


Lawson Home Services acts as a third-part tester, to verify contractors have done their jobs in complying with Delaware building code. If your home has been tested you should find the certificate posted on the inside of your electrical panel door. Look for the number in the blank labeled " _____ ACH50". But your home may have been built before those codes were required.


Lawson Home Services also conducts the Energize Delaware energy audits for individual home owners. Our auditors, certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI), will do much more than a blower door test. They will inspect your home from top to bottom, identifying how and where your home is leaking energy and driving up your utility bills. The Energize Delaware report you receive will list all the things you can do to improve your home comfort and save thousands of dollars over the coming years when the cost of electricity and gas are sure to increase. 

Call Lawson Home Services to schedule an energy audit for your home. The best part is most of the cost is currently being subsidized by the Energize Delaware Program, and the out-of-pocket expense for you is (at the time of this posting  Nov/2023) just $50.
