kelley Posted July 22, 2004 Report Share Posted July 22, 2004 My wife and I are in the process of buying a house, well we got the inspection back and the inspector said that the air ducts in the foundation are destroyed and need to be replaced along with the plenum. So I called up some local A/C companies to see what it would cost to have it fixed by the current homeowner.....no less then $10,000 is what I was told by three out of the four A/C contractors and the one that was different said no less then $8,000. So I told the homeowner that, they immediately freaked out. Well last night he called me around 10pm and asked if I could come over, that he found a solution. He found this company that will clean the ducts out and patch the holes in the ducts and then they line the ducts with this material that is similar to a spray on bedliner, so it seals them up. It only will cost about $4,000 and comes with a 10 year warranty. I'm worried that this is just a patch and not a fix and that when I go to sell the house I'll be stuck with the $10,000 bill. Anyone have any advice as to what I should do? Or even better has anyone had this type of work done? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
