Jim and Shawn were very professional and enjoyable to work with. They communicated well and made me feel comfortable with the entire process. I was even able to watch some of the application of Duct Armor on their special camera! I am very happy with the Duct Armor product and I would recommend it highly to anyone who has problems with their ducts that can be solved with Duct Armor.
Jim at Atlantic Duct Armor is great to work with. He’s very accommodating and honest. He came out to do the work when it was best for us, even though we took some time in deciding to do the work. We ended up paying less than his initial estimate because he was able to get total coverage in one visit.
If you live on a slab and if you deal with water and outside material making their way into your vents, take down Atlantic Duct Armor’s # or email and contact Jim before another hard rain makes you wish you did earlier (and tell him Jason from Manalapan sent you).
I can’t do the Duct Armor system justice by attempting to describe how it works as it’s simply amazing and something I never heard of but the gist of it is it coats your slab vents with a material that is mold and mildew resistant so whatever little water does find its way in (as nothing is 100% flood/water proof) has nothing to seep into or grow on.
But don’t take my word for it…if you think you have moisture seepage or have a mildewey smell coming from your vents after a hard rain, have Jim come out with his vent cam and you’ll probably have all the proof you need (and then some).
Check out the Duct Armor process too on the web site.
*note: we found Atlantic Duct Armor while in emergency mode after finding 1/4 in water in our vents after a very hard rain. we literally did a search for ‘duct sealing’ or ‘duct protect’ and got in touch with Atlantic the next am.
We had an excellent experience with Atlantic Duct Armor. When purchasing our house, our home inspector mentioned that we had classic sub-slab ductwork that looked to be in “OK” condition but likely was something we would want to replace or re-line. Replacing the ductwork was not on the table due to its cost and the mess it would involve. After doing my own research about Duct Armor (safety, efficacy, etc), we decided that this sounded like a good product to ensure our ductwork lasted many more years and provide us safe air to breath. Because there was no Duct Armor contractor in our area, I reached out to Jim (the owner of Atlantic Duct Armor) and worked with him. He was phenomenal to work with. Because of our distance, he worked with us to build a quote, using the dimensions of the house that I provided. His quote was spot on (which I appreciated). On the day of the encapsulation, Jim arrived on time and performed the work quickly, finishing up before he estimated (another thing I appreciated). Jim explained each and every step of the process and was more than happy to answer questions (yet another thing I appreciate in any contractor). The post-application experience was exactly as Jim had described – the house would have a latex small for several days, and it would fade within a week. The smell was strong when we first turned on AC back on, but within 24 hours it was much, much better. By the end of the first week we no longer smelled the product, and now nearly a month later it is as if nothing was ever applied…except for the fact that the ducts (seem) to provide much better airflow and, more importantly, seemingly ‘better’ air. We don’t have a musty smell coming from several ducts that had apparently had once filled with water before we bought the house and (combined with a duct cleaning before Atlantic Duct Armor applied Duct Armor) we seem to have much less dust/dirt floating in the air/coating surfaces. We’re very, very happy customers of Duct Armor Atlantic Duct Armor.
