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.
Just because there is not a cracked in your slab or peices missing does not mean that your slab does not need help. In this instance, foundation issues were causing the slab to sink in some places. This could be because the soil underneath your home is contracting or expanding, or because the fill soil was not compacted properly. Even the best jobs can struggle with compacting the soil properly! This problem will only lead to bigger issues, so fixing it when it is small is imperative.
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.
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.
This crawl space in Browns Summit needed a full encapsulation. It was quickly building up trash from unneeded items and the black plastic and insulation that was placed when the house was being built was wearing out. The plastic had started to rip and rise away from the corners exposing the ground and failing at its only purpose. With water intrusion on a regular basis and the current short-term solutions failing the homeowner they decided to install a system that actually protects their home.
We installed CleanSpace, EZflow, a dehumidifier, and a sump pump. This system fully waterproofs the crawl space from the interior and protects the air from moisture. The waterproofing runs around the perimeter of the crawl space and is pumped out through the sump pump. The moisture in the air is kept in check using the dehumidifier as well as the vapor barrier that keeps water from the ground and water from the air outside from getting into the air inside the crawl space.
This home went from being problematic and at risk of future issues to clean, protected, and has seen an increase in value. The homeowners were very pleased with the job from the way it looked to the square footage they gained and the protection that this system offers.
This home’s crawl space was built with minimal protection. Like a lot of crawl spaces, they are built with insulation on the top and black plastic on the ground. Unfortunately, these are temporary solutions and aren’t very efficient. The homeowner of this home was wanting to be proactive and protect his property before it became a problem, as well as clean the space out to add usable space to his house.
We cleaned out the black plastic which had started to rip, exposing the ground and not providing protection from water vapor and installed our patented CleanSpace vapor barrier. This looks much cleaner but also protects the crawl space a lot more effectively. The CleanSpace along with SilverGlo insulation on the walls insulates and protects this crawl space from moisture in the air and assists in regulating the internal temperature of the home.
In addition to having our patented products installed, this crawl space’s insulation was not showing signs of deterioration from condensation and mold, so we were able to keep it in place. Being able to do so saves it from getting ruined in the future and adds another layer of insulation to the home. Once we were finished the crawl space looked great and the homeowner was very happy. The crawl space not only became a usable part of his home but is now a much more energy efficient space.
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.
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.
Compared to our typical crawl space encapsulations this job was very simple, however the situation did bring about some challenges. The owner of the home did not want to upgrade the existing plastic covering inside the crawl space and was only looking for a waterproofing system. So, to do this we had to carefully pull up the plastic, without it ripping, and install our waterproofing products. In addition to this, we had to level portions of the crawl space back out after rain muddied up the ground around the sump pump pit.
Once our system was in the ground, and ready to protect the crawl space, it was relatively simple to make the job look clean and to re-lay the thin black plastic cover. We usually recommend a much stronger vapor barrier that is more resistant to rips and tears, as well as some other humidity and air quality control measures, but the job was finished as intended and just in time.
With the rain that week starting to pick up the crawl space needed something to keep it from flooding, and that is what we provided. The homeowner was happy with the installation and the protection it offered to his home.
This house has experienced many years of water damage in its basement. After every rain, water would get inside and build up inside the block walls. This increase in moisture began to cause mold and cracking. Once the homeowner started looking for permanent solutions to this problem, they called us to inspect it for them.
Upon seeing the state of the basement our inspector suggested a full perimeter interior waterproofing system with a vapor barrier along the block walls. This system, utilizing WaterGuard waterproofing, a TrippleSafe sump pump, and CleanSpace vapor barrier is designed to keep basements dry during rains. The vapor barrier assists in lowering humidity and subsequent mold growth, while the WaterGuard and TrippleSafe system is there to handle the actual water coming into the block walls and basement area.
Once we installed the products the homeowners were happy with the results. It was a long time coming to have this protection from water intrusion into the home and they could start to utilize the space more effectively.
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.
This home had a very large crawl space. Unfortunately, it still had issues like every other crawl space. With a dirt floor, block walls, and block piers running through it there were plenty of spaces that water could get inside. The water getting in was typically manifesting as a vapor in the air and subsequently raised the humidity level. After a while of this, the homeowner decided to have us inspect the home.
The walk-in crawl space was very humid and causing issues for the home. Potential mold growth and inefficient heating and cooling were among the most critical to address. High humidity caused by water in the air is always bad because it creates the perfect environment for mold to grow and will ruin the wood inside. This also leaves problems for the air flowing into the living areas because the air inside the crawl space will always escape through the rest of the home. So, the moldy air can get everywhere and if not regulated can make it hard to heat or cool the home.
We went in and installed our patented CleanSapce vapor barrier throughout the crawl space. This vapor barrier is designed for crawl space, so it does not rip and keeps the water vapor out of the air. It works for ground, block walls, and up piers to have maximum protection. So, now this crawl space is much more efficient at regulating the air quality, which improves the health of the entire home, and it is more usable as a storage space. The homeowner was very particular about the way he wanted things and we were able to meet his needs and left the job with him very happy about the work.
Constantly flooding and high humidity was causing a lot of mold to grow inside this crawl space. The mold was on most of the floor joists and the musty smell was being circulated throughout the home. This issue plagued the home and it is a common problem to have when there is little protection from water inside a crawl space.
To solve the problem, we inspected the home and worked with the homeowner to choose the best options. The appropriate solutions seemed to be our interior waterproofing and a vapor barrier with drainage matting. This mix of products will work to keep the crawl space physically dry, by draining out any water intrusion, and it will keep the air dry and less humid because the vapor barrier will keep the moisture in the ground from evaporating into the air.
After we cleaned out the crawl space and installed our own long-term solutions, the crawl space looked great, and the homeowners were very happy with the results. This system has been protecting this crawl space for years, and it is designed to be the very best in crawl space protection.
Water was easily getting into this basement. The block walls were covered in efflorescence, indicating where water had been held and evaporated. Our inspection of this house led us to propose that the homeowner get a full perimeter waterproofing with a vapor barrier against the wall.
This system will be able to capture water that comes up from the ground and down from the block. It can also keep the water, that may rest higher in the block, from evaporating out into the basement air. These products that we installed will keep water from flooding into the basement and help keep the humidity lower inside.
After our installation, the homeowners were very happy with the finished work, our communication, and job we did cleaning up. The basement is protected from flooding and humidity in ways it never was before and is ready to face the heaviest of rains.
One of the worst conditions we have seen in a crawl space was the one at this home. Years of short-term, and largely useless, solutions had failed this crawl space and was causing problems that added much risk to the house. Issue number one was the mold that the high humidity was easily allowing to grow. Secondly, was the must and unhealthy air that was being filtered throughout the rest of the home. Lastly, the mess was a perfect catalyst for creatures nesting inside the crawl space. These were the main issues and do not take into account the ad hoc floor supports that were installed long ago.
The homeowners were ready to take their crawl space back and have it work for the home again. So, we inspected it and proposed a system that worked for them financially while solving the main issues. We went in and cleaned the entire crawl space out, which immediately made it harder for creatures to nest and thrive inside. Then we installed thermal wall insulation which allows the crawl space to treat the air inside it the same as the air inside the home. Since the crawl space air is being filtered throughout the home this step is very important. Lastly, we put down our CleanSpace vapor barrier that is designed to be durable within a crawl space and keeps the humidity down by keeping water vapor from the ground in the ground.
After the installation, the homeowners were very happy with the transformation. Of course, not every issue can be solved at once, but the home is much further along than it was. It now has actual long-term solutions in place to elevate the efficiency and reduce issues such as mold growth, bad air flow, and nesting creatures.
The constant flooding and water build up inside this crawl space took a heavy toll on the home’s health. Mold growth was excessive, the air being filtered into the living areas was largely unhealthy, and issues with rapidly changing temperatures would occur.
The homeowners were tired of these issues and had us inspect the home. It was obvious that the high humidity from flooding and water vapor was the main source of the problem. So, we offered a solution that would waterproof the inside and provide protection from water vapor coming from the ground.
This system utilizes EZflow waterproofing that runs around the perimeter of the crawl space and into a SmartSump sump pump. It also has a CleanSpace vapor barrier that is perfect for keeping water vapor in the ground and out of the air. These two systems work together to protect this crawl space from water intrusion and the resulting high humidity. Once the humidity is decreased and the temperature is more controllable, the crawl space can be a healthy space without more mold growth.
The homeowners were thrilled with the work that we did. It was what they wanted and provided the protection they needed. It is hard to know what is going on inside of your crawl space, but we are specialists and are in crawl spaces every day to help homeowners understand what is best for their home. If you are concerned about the health of your home through your crawl space, call us! We love to help.
Mold had infested inside this crawl space, covering the floor joists. Years of little to no protection from water seepage and high humidity had left its mark. After concerns that this damage would eventually ruin the house, the homeowners had us do a free inspection.
Once we got into the crawl space it was clear what the problem was. High humidity was being caused by outside factors such as water from the ground and air outside the crawl space. To ensure that we protected the air from high humidity, we needed to put a system in place that sealed off the crawl space. We put together and installed a system containing CleanSpace vapor barrier, a SaniDry dehumidifying air system, and a sealed crawl space door.
This system works together to keep water vapor out of the air, which causes high humidity, and is what the vapor barrier is for. It also seals off the outside air from the inside crawl space air. This is done to keep the temperature outside from affecting how much water the air inside can hold before it starts to grow mold or precipitate. The last function, coming from the SaniDry dehumidifier, regulates the already protected air inside the crawl space. These three functions provide incredible protection from high humidity, and these homeowners were very happy with the results in their crawl space.
