With occurring water damage and trash everywhere, this crawl space was not working well for the home. Mold growth is common in wet crawl spaces like this, but it is also unhealthy for the air that is filtered through the home and makes it hard to regulate temperature. This crawl space needed some improvements.
We were able to clean out the debris that attracted all sorts of animals and replace the vapor barrier wrapping the walls as well. Doing this made the crawl space air quality much easier to control. The last thing installed was a dehumidifier that was very helpful in reducing moisture from the air.
After all our patented products were installed and the crawl space was looking good as new the homeowners were happy with the results. This crawl space now works for the home in ways it never had before. Its mold probability has reduced, its temperature is easier to manage, and it now doubles as a storage area.
This crawl space had many issues. It was not up to building code, it was completely exposed to the elements outside, and it was a great breeding ground for creatures like mice.
Being exposed to the air outside the crawl space and the moisture from the ground allows the crawl space air to fill full of water. This exposure and the subsequent moisture increase results in mold growth and a musty odor that, if left to itself, can plague an entire home. This sort of crawl space environment is not only bad for the home’s health and energy efficiency but in most cases, it is not up to the building codes and is a catalyst for creatures nesting.
In order to alleviate these issues and solve the underlying problems the clients contracted with us to install our patented products and systems. Encapsulating the entire crawl space, from the walls to the support pillars in our CleanSpace vapor barrier holds off the moisture from the air outside the crawl space. This keeps water from getting into the air inside the crawl space and Installing a SaniDry dehumidifier doubles down to work to keep the air dry and as a result it keeps mold off the upstairs floor and the air quality high.
After the job was completed the homeowners were very happy to have a crawl space working for their home, up to building code, and protecting the health of their house.
When this foundation began to sink the first complication noticed was a crack along one of the exterior walls. The weight and pressure put on the wall was releasing by breaking the bond of the bricks. With concern for their home the homeowners had us inspect it.
Upon inspection, the issue lied within the foundation. Over time the home began to sink, which is not surprising for most homes in the long run. Supporting the foundation and bracing the house was, at this point, the best option to save the foundation.
We installed multiple helical piers along the base of the home. By placing these piers periodically and systematically under the foundation of the home we can support it from deep under the ground which is less reactive to soil disruption. Luckily on this home we were not only able to support it, but we were able to lift the house back into place and close the crack along the wall.
The owners of home were very happy with these results as house lift is not always possible. This job went very smoothly and is another example of our capability and faith in the products we install.
The purpose of our work on this crawl space was to lower the humidity. Mold, as a result of uncontrollable humidity, was forming on the exposed wood along the top. This damage and general ineffectiveness of the crawl space was what lead the homeowners to us.
We were able to help first by offering a free inspection and identifying the underlying issue, the humidity, and by installing patented products designed for crawl space health. Our CleanSpace vapor barrier along the ground and support pillars keeps moisture from the ground from getting into the air. Additionally, we sealed the door, insulated the walls, and installed a SaniDry dehumidifying air system that works to keep the air dry.
These products all work together to keep the crawl space in a dry and controlled environment. After installation the homeowners were happy and surprised at how clean we were able to keep the job throughout.
Exposure to the open ground in this crawl space caused multiple issues. Problems like heating trouble and excessive humidity would come and go throughout the seasons and take tolls on the health of the crawl space. The homeowner was concerned for the health of their crawl space and chose us to install our patented products and systems onto the home.
When we got to the crawl space there was a fair amount of debris needing to be cleared. Once we were rid of the packed away waste, we were able to get started. By insulating the crawl space walls with SilverGlo we were able to take out the fiberglass floor insulation that had started to tear and waste away and begin to control the temperature within the crawl space. We wrapped the entire area with CleanSpace vapor barrier which now keeps moisture from the ground in the ground and not in the air. Lastly, in the back we installed a SaniDry dehumidifier that of course greatly improves the homes ability to regulate humidity within the crawl space.
This homeowner was relatively quick to recognize the issues within their crawl space and we were able to design and install the needed solutions. They were happy with the work we did, and we could not be prouder ourselves.
Years of a settling foundation and constant wear from the environment had started to show itself in the form of cracks on corners of this brick house. The sinking foundation had caught up to itself and the homeowner’s contracted us to solve this problem.
Of course, the first problem we were able to solve, by installing helical piers under the home, was the problem of the sinking foundation. All foundations will sink overtime as the dirt under them are packed down and wore out by water, but there comes a time when the settling can cause damage to a home’s walls and infrastructure. So, by installing piers under the foundation we were able to stabilize the home from deep within the ground. The second and fortunate result we were able to achieve was a partial house lift. This is when the sunken area can be shifted up, closing gaps in the cracks by lifting the house back up.
The homeowners were very happy with the results. Peace of mind that comes from securing the foundation of your home is by far the most important thing, but to also achieve some lift that improves cosmetically always comes as an additional bonus. We were happy to complete this job on time and protect another home from potential damage.
The back end of this home was experiencing stress from years of supporting itself and pressure forming from the slope it was built on. This resulted in the foundation sinking and starting to form cracks around the corners and inside the crawl space walls.
In order to make sure this home was properly protected we installed helical piers around the base of the home to hydraulically lift it and we installed some interior push piers inside the crawl space. These piers work together to stabilize the entirety of the home and help release the strain put on the foundation. Some lift and correction to the cracks were noticeable but the most important result from the job was the stabilization of the home.
The homeowner was understanding throughout our process and trusted to us to take care of his house as if it were one of ours. He was very happy with the end product and we are proud to have protected another house from the inevitable sinking foundation.
Mold, must, and constantly changing temperatures all affected this home’s crawl space. For years there were problems with the crawl space but the plastic covering, and fiberglass insulation were doing an okay job at keeping the house protected from the weather. Unfortunately, but predictably, these measures began to fail. The homeowners decided to invest in a proper long-term solution that would keep the humidity inside the crawl space down and assist the home in its energy efficiency.
At this point we offered our patented products and went to install CleanSpace vapor barrier, SilverGlo thermal wall insulation, and a sealed crawl space door. Combining these products together allows the air inside the crawl space to resist taking on water vapor and keeps it a consistent temperature against the changing weather outside. Insulating the walls and sealing off the door also allows no venting to take place, which causes the rest of the home to heat and cool more effectively.
Because this crawl space was such a typical crawl space, as it was completely unprotected and offering few net benefits to the home, we were extremely happy we were able to improve it. The homeowners were very happy with our work and the job will last the house a long time, providing it the needed protection all homes deserve.
Like most crawl spaces, when this home was built the builders laid clear plastic down inside the crawl space. This brings it up to code, but very quickly this thin barrier starts to rip, and the exposed earth allows moisture to easily evaporate into the air. The openly vented and exposed nature of this crawl space caused many issues with mold growth, high humidity, and nesting creatures. Once the homeowners realized these realities, they hired us to provide an efficient solution.
We cleared the nasty crawl space out completely and began to seal it off with our patented CleanSpace vapor barrier. This durable barrier was designed to encapsulation crawl spaces and hold moisture to the ground. Doing this immediately helps with keep the crawl space dehumidified and creatures from building nests in debris. There are more products and systems available to increase the protection of this crawl space, but for this home and the homeowners our vapor barrier is a perfect start to bring this crawl space back to live.
Once the new vapor barrier was installed and sealed throughout the crawl space, the difference was undeniable, and the homeowners were happy. This space could even be used as storage for certain items. This crawl space was like many and was actively hurting the health of the home, but now it contributes to its efficiency.
The rainwater that would fall and runoff down the base of the home started finding ways to seep into the basement wall. This intrusion would soak into the block walls and leak into the home as well as put pressure on the block walls from the outside. This started to cause cracking, and it made the paint on the wall chip. To put a stop to the problematic flooding, the homeowners hired us to install a permanent solution.
There was a sump pump pit already dug in this basement, but whatever had been installed was not working properly. So, we ran our patented WaterGuard drainage system around the perimeter of the basement and installed CleanSpace along the walls. This captures the water intrusion and makes it more difficult for water vapor to evaporate into the air. Lastly, we installed our SaniDry dehumidifier air system to keep the air clean and dry and ran the discharge line outside.
With the new products installed, this basement is fully protected from leakage. The homeowners that hired us were very happy with the improvement and are looking forward to enjoying the improved state of the home.
This home’s crawl space was very friendly to water intrusion. The block walls and piers were saturated and ridden with efflorescence. All this water was raising the humidity, risking dangerous mold growth, and rendering the crawl space useless to the homeowner. Because of these factors, the homeowners reach out to us for a permanent solution.
We inspected the problem area and put together a system that would help. Installation went very well which allowed the CleanSpace vapor barrier, SaniDry dehumidifier, EZflow waterproofing, and our SilverGlo wall insulation to work together to keep the crawl space protected. This encapsulation with our top-of-the-line products will keep water out of the crawl space and protect it from high humidity and inconsistent temperatures.
The homeowners were thrilled with the encapsulation and are looking forward to being able to use the crawl space for things such as storage.
Moisture readings in this crawl space were very high when we did our inspection. The mold spores growing on the floor joists were also an obvious sign of moisture issues. The homeowner knew these problems were harming the health of her home, so she hired us to solve them.
We cleaned out the crawl space and got rid of the debris and failing plastic barrier. Then we were able to install our CleanSpace vapor barrier that is designed to protect crawl spaces. It is extremely durable and hold moisture back from the ground and walls of the crawl space.
When we were finished, the crawl space was much less likely to allow moisture into the air and was a perfect spot for storage. The homeowner was pleased with the improvements and health benefits that we added to her crawl space.
The moisture issues that this home was facing was largely due to rainwater being drained right into the foundation of the home. This water was seeping into the crawl space and making the existing protection work much harder than it could handle.
The homeowner decided to have our French drain system installed to redirect the problematic water drainage away from the home. We dug trenched downgrade from the foundation and ran our EZflo out. Our French drains were capped off with our disguised drainage caps to blend in with the lawn and stay out of the way.
With the rainwater now flowing out of our French drain, the minimal protection inside the crawl space will last much longer before needing to be replaced with a permanent solution. The homeowner was very happy with this upgrade protecting the foundation of his home.
Tons of water seepage was coming into this crawl space and causing problems. Mold growth and rotting wood were among the most severe, and the cluttered environment made it no stranger to nesting creatures. The homeowners were noticing a musty smell and knew they needed to have the crawl space saved.
We inspected every inch of this crawl space and made plans to fix the moisture issues. So, we cleared out all the trash and failed insulation and leveled the grade. Then we installed our products such as CleanSpace vapor barrier, SilverGlo wall insulation, and drainage matting underneath.
This sealed the crawl space up nicely and helped to treat the area as part of the home. Moisture would now have a difficult time getting into the air to ruin the air quality or the wood structure.
The exposed crawl space under this home allowed moisture to easily get inside and effect the air quality. Musty smells, mold growth, and ruined insulation were the beginnings of the trouble.
So, the homeowner had us inspect and fix the issues. We installed our SmartPump drainage system to collect moisture and our CleanSpace vapor barrier to prevent ground water from evaporating into the air. This allows the crawl space to hold clean and dry air that will not harm the health of the home.
The homeowners were very happy with their new crawl space look and functionality. They could use it as storage and did not have to worry about the health complications the old nasty crawl space would form.
Settlement over the years caused this concrete walkway to shift and sink. The shifts created trip hazards, looked bad, and was unusable for wheelchairs. The homeowner needed the damaged concrete repaired to regain its utility.
So, he hired us, and we were able to help. Our PolyLevel was pumped under the slabs to level them out and protect them against further erosion. After that we sealed the concrete with NexusPro that binds the cracks together and acts as a waterproof seal.
The repaired walkway looked much better after we finished, and the homeowner was thrilled with the result.
The old wooden trusses and supports were starting to sag under the pressure of the home. We inspected it upon the homeowner’s request and found that the floor sagging could be fixed with some stabilization in the crawl space.
We designed and installed multiple SmartJacks on a steel beam to help hold the floor up. This made the home extremely stable, and the homeowners were very happy to have this kind of peace of mind.
The concrete porch and driveway on this home had started to crack and slip away from the home. The dips were becoming more of a problem as they were pooling water and causing trip hazards.
The homeowner hired us to level out and stabilize the porch. So, we injected our PolyLevel foam under the porch and driveway to level and stabilize it. We took the time to make sure the angle of the concrete slab was sloped away from the home as well.
Mold and moisture riddled this crawl space. The homeowner called us to inspect and propose a unique solution that would get rid of these issues.
We cleaned out the entire crawl space and installed started to level it out. After that, we were able to lay down our CleanSpace vapor barrier and seal the entire crawl space area.
Several products and layers were used in ensuring the crawl space would not leak or cause harmful air condition again. The homeowners were thrilled to have this work done and their crawl space protected.
Nasty and wet, this crawl space was filtering harmful air into the rest of the home. The homeowners were finished with musty air wafting through the upstairs area and the risk of mold and rot underneath it.
So, we inspected, explained, and installed our patented products to alleviate these issues in accordance with the homeowners wishes. Our crawl space waterproofing system collects unwanted water and pumps it away from the home safely.
This system keeps the crawl space much drier, even without a vapor barrier seal.
The settling foundation inside this building was destabilizing the walls and causing the doors to sink. We were able to completely stabilize the foundation and lift the wall back into place.
Our PolyLevel product was pumped under the slab that filled the voids and lifted the wall back into place. This also lifted the door back into the door jam.
The crawl space under this home was experiencing a lot of issues with moisture. The water intrusion was ruining the insulation and increasing the mold growth.
The homeowners hired us to fully inspect under the home and provide a solution that would improve the health of their home.
We encapsulated the crawl space with our durable CleanSpace vapor barrier and dehumidified it. Doing this protected the entire home from moisture under the house.
The crawl space under this home was a mess, but the sagging floors above were a much greater concern. The homeowners started to notice sagging and cracking in their floor which prompted them to contact us.
We inspected the home thoroughly and found that our SmartJack solution would be perfect. So, we started to install the jacks under a steel beam support. The jacks were placed strategically to help support and slightly push back the floor.
The homeowners were thrilled with this addition and felt safer walking on their floor.
Uwu from Graham, NC contacted Carolina Basement Systems because they were in need of foundation repair. They had found the company through an online search. The problem that Uwu was having was that there were cracks in the foundation and the basement was leaking. Carolina Basement Systems offered a free estimate to Uwu. The solution that Carolina Basement Systems provided was to install helical piers. The helical piers are driven into the ground until they reach a load-bearing soil or bedrock. This process stabilizes the foundation and lifts the structure back to its original position.
