Dirt crawl spaces can lead to inconsistent temperature in a home as well as molding or rotting floor joists. We were able to protect and save this homeowner’s property by installing two sump pumps, CleanSpace to the ground, a SaniDry dehumidifier, and SilverGlo to the walls. This crawl space is now protected from moisture in the air and ground and is going to have much more consistent temperatures.
This house had started to sink at the foundation forcing the exterior walls to come apart. Without being treated this could worsen and start to bring the wall down completely. We were able to fix the cracking and restore the home by supporting the house with piers.
When this home started to settle the shift began to crack the block walls within the crawl space. These foundation walls are very important for the structural integrity of the home. Luckily, after a few piers were ran into the ground and under the foundation, we were able to not only support the home but lift it back into place.
When problems with the foundation of this home occurred, the change in pressure and support resulted in cracking walls. These type of block walls, when the home starts to shift, crack easily and after we supported the foundation with piers, we were able to lift the home and release the pressure. This lift closed the cracked wall and released the stress put on it.
From years of pressure, exerted from the dirt behind the block wall, the mortar lines started to crack, and the wall bowed. This problem is very commonplace for older block walls in wet areas, and it is also very solvable. We installed CarbonArmor strips along the wall which creates a tough elastic support that is more than strong enough to counter the pressure coming from behind the wall and keeps the wall supported in the future.
