Jimmy, Crawl Space Encapsulation

Oak Ridge, TN

The crew at Crawl Space Ninja just finished some major work at my family's home. They were always professional and courteous. Their work was excellent and more than I could ask for. They explained everything in explicit detail to make sure I understood what needed to be done, what was wrong, the cost options I had and whether they were all necessary or a convenience. I really appreciated their honesty and workmanship.

It became known as the Secret City during that time, and today they hold a festival each year featuring the same name to celebrate that history. Oak Ridge is still home to Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Y-12 and X-10 are the only two facilities still standing that were used in wartime bomb production.
