George called because even though he had what he thought was a vapor barrier installed in his crawl space, he was still noticing moisture in parts of - mostly the area below the bedrooms. He was older and didn't want to go down there himself, so he asked us to come to an inspection and let him know what would fix it permanently.
Whoever had done work in his crawl space hadn't put down a true barrier, but instead the plastic sheeting many people use just to cover the dirt and think "good enough." Unfortunately it isn't good enough to keep moisture out of your crawl space and home.
We installed CleanSpace vapor barrier with drainage matting in the entire crawl space, which will prevent water issues in the future and keep George's home safe and dry.
Water is entering Scott’s basement through his basement floor. He does not have a working sump so he called our team to help waterproof his basement. We installed TripleSafe and SaniDry and a few other systems to fully waterproof his basement. TripleSafe is a sump pump system that is battery powered which will allow Scott to not worry about his basement flooding during power outages. The SaniDry XP Basement Dehumidifier never needs to be emptied because the water drains automatically. Also, it is ten times more powerful than typical dehumidifiers. Installing these pieces will keep Scott’s basement dry no matter what weather his house encounters.
John and Sherry needed help repairing their bowed basement wall. So our team installed the GeoLock Anchor System which permanently stabilizes walls and in most cases it can eventually straighten the wall back to its original position. The system is installed by putting heavy anchors in stable soil away from your foundation wall. This system is ideal because it involves minimal disturbance to your lawn and home.
A customer wanted to turn his basement into a living space and so he called us to install Egress Windows and Wells. Egress Window Wells are required because they are big enough to provide a safe exit in case of emergency. In addition, these windows provide lots of natural light. Lastly, most windows offer minimal protection against outside air entering the home due to poor insulation around the window. Egress windows will help ventilate your indoor areas and prevent unwanted allergens from entering your house.
Cracks in Robert's basement walls were allowing water in, so he called our team. We installed PowerBrace, a foundation repair system created to secure basement walls in place. Often outside pressures can cause your basement walls to crack or tilt, this foundation repair system counteracts these pressures by keeping your basement walls in place. Over time, the system can be tightened to not only secure the walls in place, but to also straighten them back to their original position.
A customer needed to make sure their crawl space was entirely sealed off to make sure her house was ready to sell. So she called our team and we installed an Everlast Window. EverLast windows are made from insulated glass so you won't have to worry about heat loss or water seeping through cracks in the window. In addition, EverLast windows do not rot no matter how much water they are in contact with. Therefore, installing an EverLast window let you relax and no longer have to worry about water intrusion.
A homeowner contacted our team because his floors were sagging. So we installed SmartJack, a system produced to halt your sagging floors. Floors above crawl spaces are vulnerable due to the moisture and soils in your crawl space. The Smart Jack system is a permanent fix to these issues. It uses steel columns, threaded rods and a solid base to address any issues your crawl space may introduce to your floors. Installing this system usually takes less than a day and it provides immediate stabilization.
