Boyne City, MI Crawl Space Becomes Energy Efficient

Boyne City, MI Crawl Space Becomes Energy Efficient Boyne City, MI Crawl Space Becomes Energy Efficient

These Boyne City, MI homeowners found us at a trade show. After flipping through our Crawl Space Science book and talking with one of our representatives, they knew they wanted one of our energy efficient encapsulations. At the time, their dirt crawl space was filled with debris and various types of insulation they had used to cover the vents. Our system design specialist offered them a much a better alternative.

The Ultimate Energy Saving combination utilizes three different products designed to insulate both the floor and walls, all the while keeping the crawl space protected from moisture and humidity. The dirt floor of this crawl space was perfect for moisture and humidity to permeate. Our drainage matting, when laid across the floor, will prevent water from becoming trapped in the crawl space and adding to the humidity. The actual floor insulation came from the waterproof foam TerraBlock. To insulate the walls, the team used SilverGlo insulation panels. The walls were attached over the previous stone and will reflect heat back into the crawl space while keeping the cold out. After encapsulating the entire area with our ultra-durable CleanSpace vapor barrier, this crawl space was good to go.

After meeting one of our representatives at a trade show, this Boyne City, MI resident decided that an encapsulation was exactly what she needed to deal with the dampness problem in her crawl space. We sent a system design specialist over to discuss the possible plans with her. But before she was willing to commit, she wanted to see what a complete crawl space encapsulation looked like. We got her in touch with one of our past customers who was living in the area. Once she saw the crawl space in person, she was sold.

For this sand floor crawl space, the crew decided to encapsulate the whole area with CleanSpace vapor barrier- the white liner in the after photo. This barrier will prevent moisture from passing through the sand floor. CleanSpace is also mold resistant because of its inorganic material, so the wood floor joists in the ceiling of the crawlspace will never threaten to rot or fail. Now this homeowner finally has her very own CleanSpace system.

After moisture started leaking into the crawl space in the before photo, it resulted in the hanging and wet insulation in the before photo. The plastic tarp in the photo was meant to keep moisture from passing through the dirt floor. If it was working, it wasn’t enough for the rest of the crawl space. Some of the moisture could be traced back to a broken pipe, but after it was repaired, the crawl space was still damp. Our system design specialist traced the leaks back to the block wall foundation. The CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System in the after photo is able to replace the previous tarp barrier and keep moisture from leaking through the walls. It's impenetrable by moisture so water won't affect it again.

Job Stories From Boyne City, MI
PolyLevel Combats Settled Garage Slabs in Boyne City, MI

Settlement caused several large cracks to form along the garage in this Boyne City home. New garage doors were installed and they no longer sealed along the bottom due to the settlement, and the homeowner wanted the issue resolved before it worsened over time.

We used the PolyLevel system to lift the sunken garage slabs and prevent the issue from occurring again. This system also dealt with the weak soil issue below the slabs, which was the root cause of the settlement in the first place. We drilled small holes into the concrete and then filled them with a specialized polymer material. The high-density and lightweight polymers expanded underneath the slab to lift it back to its proper position. The installation was quick and caused minimal disruption to the home, plus the cure time was only about 15 minutes!

To seal the cracks, we used the NexusPro joint sealant. This sealant caulked the cracks and prevented them from continuing to shift or grow in size.

Sealing Off Boyne City, MI Crawl Space From Outside Elements

These homeowners originally called because the crawl space in their home was creating cold floors in the area above. They hadn’t noticed any water problems, although the exposed dirt ground and block wall foundation allowed water vapor to easily access the space, which created high moisture and humidity levels.

In order to seal off the crawl space and prevent moisture from entering, we encapsulated the space with the durable CleanSpace liner. The liner was sized to fit the dimensions of the crawl space and then laid out directly on top of the dirt ground and up the walls, where it was then securely attached. This liner is waterproof and vapor proof to keep moisture out and has an anti-microbial additive to prevent mold growth. The piers in the crawl space were also wrapped to protect them from ambient moisture.

The crawl space had vent covers that not only allowed water or vapor into the space, but it also let cold, drafty air in that was contributing to the cold floors in the home above. To combat this we installed vent covers that created an airtight seal from the outside environment.

The crawl space floor was insulated with TerraBlock that works to insulate the space and prevent moisture from entering with its vapor proof exterior. The walls in the crawl space were insulated with SilverGlo and FrothPak insulation. The SilverGlo panels reflect heat back into the space to save the homeowners on energy costs while combating the cold floors above. FrothPak is a spray foam insulation that does not absorb moisture and is made from inorganic materials to prevent mold growth if it got wet. FrothPak will stay put on the wall and has the ability to seal off any small spaces that could let outside air or moisture in.

A Full Waterproofing Saves Vacation Home in Boyne City, MI

Lois was putting in a call for the sake of her family. They would use this Boyne City, MI property as a second home for family time and vacations. But as of late, they were just doing their best to keep it afloat.

Water was puddling all over the basement floor, and mold and mildew were about as well. They recently tried to solve the problem with an interior solution from another company. While the repair didn’t solve the issue, it didn’t convince most of the family that an interior solution was not the answer. It put our system design specialist in a rough spot. Luckily, he was able to explain to Lois and her family how our complete waterproofing system is different than other repairs and that it would be the best thing for their basement.

Once all the members of the family were convinced to give the Ayers waterproofing system a try, the crew got to work. The plan drawn up by our system design specialist called for a perimeter drainage system and sump pump to collect the basement water, a SaniDry XP dehumidifier to deal with the moldy conditions and keep the basement feeling as dry as it would look, and an exterior outlet for the water to discharge. A WaterGuard perimeter drainage system was placed in the floor and wall joint to collect water as it naturally flows to the perimeter of the room. In the hopes of making this solution a permanent one, the crew also installed several inspection ports so the WaterGuard system can be checked for clogging. Once in the WaterGuard, the water will be directed to our most reliable sump pump system, the TripleSafe. With backup systems that will continue to run during power outages or excessive loads, TripleSafe will keep Lois’ basement from ever flooding again. After the water is pumped out of the basement, it will be pushed to a lawnscape outlet where the water can exit without causing problems to the foundation.  

Lois and her family are now free to go back to enjoying their Boyne City vacation spot and before the end of summer, too!

Full Waterproof System in Boyne City, MI

David and JoAnn had been dealing with water issues in their basement ever since they moved into their Boyne City, MI home. There were multiple leaking cracks in the basement ranging from the floor to the walls and coves near the ceiling. With no sign of the water letting up, they decided to give us a call and learn more about our waterproofing system.

After hearing about and seeing the problems that the couple was facing, our system design specialist came up with a plan that would take care of the issue once and for all. It seemed pretty apparent that water wasn’t going to stop trying to find its way into the basement, so he created a design that would get the water out immediately. The first step for the crew was giving the water somewhere to drain. That’s where WaterGuard, a perimeter drainage system, came into play. The system was installed at the floor and wall joint and will collect any water that leaks down the walls or on the floor. To treat the cracks and make sure that the water is directed to the drainage system, the team installed the two-layer sealant FlexiSpan system. The inner layer is used to get deep into the cracks and block the majority of water from entering. The outer layer is for drainage; any water that does penetrate the seal will be led straight to the WaterGuard system resting below. Unfortunately, FlexiSpan couldn’t be used to seal all of David and JoAnn’s cracks. For the other walls, the team used our BrightWall panels. The waterproof panels were attached to the previous basement walls and create a barrier that won’t allow vapor or seepage to permeate. Any seepage will follow the same path to the drainage system as the water leaking behind the FlexiSpan system.

While we can’t control the elements, David and JoAnn’s home will be well protected if and when water returns.

We have water coming up, through what appears to be the floor, in our basement. It's along an exterior wall and hard to tell if it is leaking right at the base of the wall or coming through the floor. The floor is painted and is bubbling up with water and slowly oozing across the floor to the drain

Our house is 100 years old and has settled some. I believe the floor joists need to be fixed/reinforced as we have very uneven floors.

Our house is built into a hill with a walk out basement. Water comes into the basement at the back of the house/near the bottom of the hill. We do not have gutters. I suspect we need a better water diversion or drainage system outside the house to keep the water out, but wanted to consult with professionals to do it properly.

My husband and I moved into our house a year ago and our basement leaks regularly in the spring/summer months. It's concrete and any rain or moisture spills into the basement. We've tried several different things to try and stop the issue but the water seems to be worse than last year .
Project Location: Boyne City, MI
There are two issues. One is that on occasion water seems to seep into one of the basement bedrooms. This happens when lots of sno melt is combined with rain. A second issue is probsbly worse. We remodeled two years ago, fixing all drywall cracks and in one spot they came back, so it seems something is settling.
