Short term solutions like thin plastic coverings and fiberglass insulation inside a crawl space always form complications. When water gets into the crawl space and the crawl space air it starts to ruin the insulation and form mold all around. We tore out these old solutions and installed a lasting vapor barrier to help keep the crawl space air dry.
This commercial application of our PolyLevel and NexusPro products was a quick and clean concrete leveling job. The concrete slab behind this business had sank and cracked over the years and in time would have cause more property damage.

Kim of Greensboro, NC contacted Carolina Basement Systems with some serious issues regarding her crawl space. During a recent home inspection, she was informed of some loose and missing insulation in her crawl space. She was also told of some mold growth found on the foundation walls - yikes! Lastly, the home inspector noted of a foul odor coming from the crawl space, which Kim believed could explain the musty odors that had recently appeared in her living room. She knew these problems had to be handled immediately, and she contacted the best waterproofing people in town!
After TJ came to inspect the crawl space, he worked with Kim to come up with the best solution to fit both her budget and home's needs. After the game plan was agreed upon, JC and his hardworking crew hopped on the job. They started by removing all debris and loose insulation. Next, vents were sealed to close off the area and control humidity. Drainage matting was installed to give flooding water under the crawl space liner a channel that directs the water to the perimeter drain and sump pump system. CleanSpace liner was used to wrap the piers and seal the walls and floor. A SnaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was hooked up to stop mold growth, eliminate musty odors, rid of high humidity, and relieve asthma and allergy symptoms. Lastly, an EverLast door was installed to seal off the newly encapsulated crawl space. Made from PVC plastic, this door is airtight, watertight, and will never crack, warp, or deteriorate. Moisture no longer stands a chance against this crawl space!
Another happy customer and another protected home thanks to Carolina Basement Systems!

Water seepage from the ground and water intrusion from the walls were causing this crawl space to be very wet. This moisture was causing increased mold growth and other health issues.
The homeowners were concerned, so they hired us to clan out the nasty crawl space and encapsulated it with our patented products and systems.
The fully waterproofed, sealed, and dehumidified crawl space now operates as an energy efficient and healthy part of the home.
We did a full inspection of the crawl space under this home to check for potential moisture and foundation issues. We found that water seepage was occurring and did recommend waterproofing and dehumidifying the crawl space to the customer. However, they were primarily concerned about the sagging floor and foundation issues of the home.
During our inspection, we also checked the floor and proposed to stabilize it with our patented SmartJacks and a steel beam support. This product can stabilize and often lift a floor back into place. This is the solution the homeowners were looking for and have been happy ever since we installed it.
Water seepage was being trapped inside these block walls and causing pressure that was cracking the wall. The risk of wall collapse, basement flooding, and mold growth made the homeowners very nervous about the state of their basement.
We provided them peace of mind with our trusted products and solutions. We waterproofed the perimeter and sealed off the moisture intrusion as well as stabilizing the cracking walls. Theses systems now keep this basement clean, dry, and supported 24/7.
The crawl space and basement of this home was facing water intrusion issues. These issues always start to manifest in different ways, but all are unhealthy for the home. We cleaned out and encapsulated the crawl space to keep the humidity down and moisture out of the air. We then did a perimeter waterproofing system inside the basement to capture intruding water and pump it outside away from the home.
We radically changed the way water was affecting this home through protecting the crawl space and basement.
Water intrusion and moisture started to seep into the foundation of the home and crawl space underneath. The homeowners started to experience negative effects such as musty air filtered through the home and high humidity.
We inspected the crawl space thoroughly and designed a plan to get rid of the moisture and water intrusion. The homeowners were thrilled with what we came up with and so we installed our vapor barrier, drainage matting, EZflow, sump pump, and our patented dehumidifying air system. These products work together to seal and protect the entire home from the water seepage.
The thin plastic vapor barrier that was laid down in the crawl space when the home was built was not keeping the home protected. Water vapor was easily coming through the ground and walls which caused mold, made it harder to heat and cool the home, and filtered musty air through the home.
The homeowner was in search of a permanent solution, so he hired us to install the job. We installed our full encapsulation that included CleanSpace vapor barrier, SilverGlo wall insulation, and our SaniDry dehumidifier. These products work together to treat the crawl space air as part of the home, keeping it dry and clean. Water vapor is practically eliminated.
The homeowner was thrilled to have this work done and to reclaim this area of the home.
Moisture brutally wrecked this crawl space by clumping insulation, raising the humidity, and causing mold growth. This once up to code crawl space started to see the negative effects of short-term solutions. To fix the moisture issues, we cleared and encapsulated the crawl space.
Our encapsulation process begins with clearing out the failing insulation and leveling out the crawl space for the best grade to install on. We put SilverGlo insulation on the walls to keep the temperature inside more consistent and cover the vents. Then we seal the crawl space in CleanSpace vapor barrier that keeps moisture from the ground from getting into the air. There are several other product options that can help keep the crawl space clean and dry such as our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, but the homeowner of this home started with just these two.
These products in this crawl space set the home up for success. The SilverGlo and CleanSpace are long-term solutions that will keep the crawl space in an immensely better condition than beforehand. The homeowners were happy with the result and with the possibility to upgrade other products in the future.
The driveway to the house had cracked and shifted a lot over the years. When the homeowner’s realized how problematic this could become, they immediately searched for the best solution. We came out to inspect and gave them a great option other than re-pouring the area.
Our PolyLevel and NexusPro products help to stabilize, seal, and occasionally lift unruly concrete. We pumped the poly under the slab to fill the worn-out voids and reduce the pressure on top of the driveway. With this problem solved, it was safe to seal the cracks with NexusPro. This completes the protection of the concrete slabs.
The homeowners were very happy with the results and the price. Now this driveway poses no threat to utility and functions properly.
The floor of this home started to sag inward and created complications for the home such as failing insulation, risk of cave ins, and letting air leak into the living areas. Now, the air of a crawl space will always travel through the main living areas but as the floor starts to sink, bigger gaps are formed, and more air can be let in.
So, to solve the problems that this sinking floor creates, we went to install our SmartJack solution. The homeowner had previously installed a generic form of jack in his crawl space to lessen the load, however these jacks are not designed to take on the weight of a home and do nothing in the way of long-term protection. We replaced this jack with our SmartJacks, which are specifically designed to support and hold the main floor of a home, and then we ran a steel I-beam to increase the support.
After the installation, the homeowner was thrilled to have the peace of mind that his entire home’s floor did not literally rest on a generic jack. Now, the home has the stabilization it needed and the functionality to adjust the support for long term success.
Underneath this home was a nasty and wet crawl space. The water leakage had gotten so bad that mold was readily growing on the exposed wood and the humidity rapidly changed the temperature. The homeowner wanted to get rid of these issues by protecting and waterproofing his crawl space, so he hired us.
We cleared out the messy crawl space and began to level it out. Then we installed EZ flow around the perimeter and ran it into a sump pump to waterproof the crawl. After that, we laid down CleanSapce vapor barrier along with SilverGlo wall insulation to keep moisture out of the air and keep the air a more consistent temperature. The last step to the full encapsulation was our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifying air system. This dehumidifier keeps the air clean and dry.
The homeowner was very happy with his newly sealed and protected home. Our foremen kept him informed throughout the project and made sure every was working properly before we cleaned up and left.
This open crawl space, exposing the ground, was causing issues with humidity. Moisture from the ground and from outside the crawl space was getting into the air inside the crawl space and raising the humidity levels. This process had started to make the crawl space at risk for mold growth and made it more difficult for the home to regulate its temperature. To solve this problem, we went out to install a vapor barrier, dehumidifying air system, and to seal off the crawl space from the outside air.
The CleanSpace vapor barrier is wrapped along the entire crawl space and up the interior piers to keep all possible, moisture holding, areas from releasing vapor into the air. The second tier of this job was to seal off the crawl space. Covering vents and adding a sealed door to the crawl space allows the air inside the crawl space to be handled independently and less affected by outside factors. Doing this also helps set the stage for our SaniDry air system which is a dehumidifier designed specifically for crawl spaces. These three systems in place are going to keep this crawl space’s air quality much higher and less humid.
After the install, the homeowners were pleased with our work. The home will run much more efficiently now and keep the crawl space safer from problems like mold growth.
Tattered plastic and insulation covered the floor of this humid and moldy crawl space. There were signs of water damage on the block walls, but we were there to protect the crawl space against rises in humidity that would form mold underneath the home and waft into the living areas. To do this we treated the crawl space as if it were part of the home. The most efficient option, chosen by the homeowner, was a vapor barrier covering encapsulating the entire crawl space.
The way CleanSpace vapor barrier works is simple; it keeps moisture out of the air inside the crawl space by sealing off the areas that water vapor exists. By wrapping up the walls and interior supports the water does not have a way to escape. This does not do much to rid the block walls of physical water, but it protects the air from that water in the form of moisture and helps lower humidity.
After we finished encapsulating the crawl space with our patented CleanSapce vapor barrier the homeowners were very happy with the result. The crawl space before was in rough shape. The space was completely useless, made it hard to heat and cool the home, and had an ever-growing risk of mold growth. Now the crawl space is more economic for the home and works to protect itself from the weather.
The painted block wall of this home’s basement had begun to chip paint and hold water. Once the water made its way to the block wall it stored up inside itself and during big rains would start leaking into the basement area. This unhealthy situation led the homeowners to us.
We inspected the issue and quickly recognized this common problem. As water levels in the ground would rise and the basement walls were beginning to be exposed to run off, water could easily find its way to the block wall. After reviewing our solutions and having questions answered the homeowners were very confident with contracting us.
We were able to install this project in one day and got it completely running. Our system waterproofed the entire basement and protected the air from water vapor coming through the walls. This keep water off the floor of course, but also help to keep the humidity inside lower. These clients were satisfied with our work and very pleased with our inspection process.
Sometimes jobs are quick and easy, but every now and then a major overhaul is required. This home was experiencing excess levels of seepage. Water stood along the basement floor and was inches deep within the back part of the crawl space. The water damage, impracticality, and threat to the integrity of the home’s foundation was increasing with time.
This being the case the homeowner decided to waterproof and vapor barrier all of it. Our two-man crew went into the unknown and when they found the pool of water inside the crawl space, they drained it of its water and cleaned out the debris. This was done before being able to install a single product. They spent an entire week, working as late at 9pm to get the job done in time, but the results were unbelievable.
This basement and crawl space mixed house is now protected from water entry and looks amazing. We installed our patented waterproofing system utilizing WaterGuard, EZflow, and sump pumps, as well as our vapor barrier CleanSpace along its entirety. The homeowner was shocked to find the extent of the water seepage but after the job was completed, he was thrilled with the finished work.
The crawl space of a home can be the catalyst for many issues and has a unique role for the house. This job showed early signs of moisture and temperature regulation issues as well as a sinking upstairs floor. These symptoms and issues were taken care of by installing a vapor barrier and a SmartJack.
The problems that this home had was easy to treat using the crawl space. The CleanSpace and SilverGlo applied to the walls and throughout the crawl space helps to block vapor and help to regulate humidity within the home. Also, the crawl space for the house was the perfect location to install a SmarJack that greatly supports the floor above it and even has a chance to level a sagging floor back out.
After this smooth installation it was very enjoyable to take in how clean and neat the crawl space looked. The homeowner was very pleased with the installation from start to finish with the service, effectiveness of the products, and the aesthetic as well.
Mary Knesel was having serious issues with water damage on the floors along the perimeter of her basement. This area is a space where friends and family gather in order to spend quality time together, so this was an issue she wanted fixed and wanted fixed with care. In order to do this she called the Carolina Basement Systems team! The primary foreman, Jose Cerda, took extra care in remedying Mary's issues. In order to fix these issues Jose installed a Basement Air Machine in order to rid Mary's basement of excess moisture. He also installed a Sump Pump and WaterGuard which aids in collecting the water entering the basement and redirecting it to a non problematic site on the property.
Mary was more than thankful for the help she received from the Carolina Basement Systems team and is excited to continuously use her basement for her enjoyment.
