CleanSpace and SilverGlo: The Perfect Combo in Alpena, MI

We had been engaging in back and forth communication with this couple for a few months after they discovered their crawl space was damp and moldy. Due to worries caused by water issues in the past, they were determined to put an end to the leakage this time around.  After meeting with our system design specialist for almost five hours, a plan began to take form on how to eliminate the water for good.

Though several different crawl space products were used – SmartSump, Vent Covers, SaniDry CX dehumidifier, drainage matting – the key to the new system was the barriers put in place that would keep moisture out. The concrete block walls seen in the before picture make for a great foundation, unfortunately, they also make for easily penetrable material for moisture. To seal up the walls, the crew attached SilverGlo insulation walls in front of the concrete blocks. The SilverGlo creates a barrier that moisture won’t be able to pass through, and it will even direct leaking water to the sump pump system. Our CleanSpace vapor barrier will have a similar effect on the dirt floor. Dirt floors don’t offer much protection from humidity or moisture, making them a big part of the mold and standing water problem that was in this crawl space. However, the inorganic plastic liner, CleanSpace, won’t allow mold growth or moisture to permeate. With the full system in place, the owners of this crawl space have no need to worry about floods or mold again.

Clean Space Eliminates the Swamp in an Alpena, MI Crawl Space

Mark and Monique, a couple from Alpena, MI have dreaded large rain storms and the spring thaw for several years. The thought of having several inches of water in their crawl space would keep them awake at night. Finally, a convenient opportunity arose, that’s when Mark & Monique gave us a call. We sent one of our System Design Specialist to their home. Our expert created a personalized solution that fit our friend’s needs and budget. We suggested the application of our unique CleanSpace encapsulation product. This product provides a thick plastic barrier that completely seals off the crawlspace from the elements it faces below. Additionally, we sprayed FrothPak rim joist foam insulation to enhance the energy efficiency of their home. Finally, our friends elected to tackle the relative humidity in their crawl space with the SaniDry Sedona. The SaniDry will promote dry breathable air throughout the couple’s home. No more water troubles means no more worries for these friends.

Helical Pier Installation in Alpena, MI

This homeowner in Alpena, MI called us because he had multiple problems with his foundation. The porch had caved in, the floors are no longer level, and as you can see in the “Before” photo, cracks were beginning to form on the outside. What you cannot see however, is that cracks were also forming on the inside of the house.

This foundation needs to be stabilized, and our Helical Piers are just the right application for this type of job. These are long steel shafts, placed deep into the ground of the soil. The footing of the home sits on top of these shafts using a heavy-duty steel anchor. Typically, like in this case, we install these anchors by excavating soil around the exterior of the home down to the footing and advancing the piers. These piers have the ability to help raise foundations back to their original position, and the installation is very fast and effective.

If you feel that you are beginning to have foundation issues in your home, please do not hesitate to call us. and we can come out for a free inspection.

We noticed water on the floor of our finished basement of the back perimeter of the house and used a dehumidifier to get the moisture out. The next year we had the same issue and all of a sudden it was worse and found the sump pump had died. We replaced the sump pump, but we still are getting water during the Winter thaw/Spring rain/Fall rain. We not only want to keep water out of the basement but will also need to refinish our basement.
