Another day, another sinking floor from a too wet crawl space. JoAnne called us to get her crawl space dry and keep it that way, as well as to lift her sinking floors.
After the new discharge line, LawnScape outlet and IceGuard system were in place, we installed a few SmartJack crawl space stabilizers to add support to the foundation and lift the sinking floors. Then we used the CleanSpace vapor barrier system with drainage matting to protect the crawl space (and the floors above) from natural moisture in the air.
A low point where the sun porch met the foundation of this home was causing water to pool and leak into the crawl space. Leaks can cause problems ranging from mold to an unstable foundation, so it was important to reroute the water and waterproof the crawl space.
40 feet of drain tile and a new chimney drain took care of the existing leak. Then we installed the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system with drainage matting and SilverGlo insulation to keep the crawl space dry and even create some usable storage space.
This note comes with great appreciation for the quality work done on my damp and wet basement of 30 years...
