CleanSpace Rids Traverse City, MI Crawl Space of Spiders
The customer called with a very understandable problem: his crawl space was full of spiders, and he wanted it to not be full of spiders. Presence of critters big or small is an indication of a crawl space exposed to the elements, so we knew that encapsulation was the place to start.
After installing the CleanSpace vapor barrier system to protect the crawl space from the elements - and the home from the crawl space - we used spray foam insulation to seal off the joists and complete the insulation process.
Geo-Lock Anchors Stop a Traverse City, MI Bowing Wall
The owners of this Traverse City, MI building first became aware of their foundation problem when they noticed one of the most common signs of a bowing wall: the large stair step cracks in the before picture. When expanding soils push on walls, the pressure can become too much for a foundation to handle and will force the walls to bend inward. Bowing walls can cause numerous problems for your foundation and in some cases, mean the end of the structural integrity altogether. The solution in the after photo is our Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System. By attaching the wall plates in the picture to Geo Anchors outside, the wall can no longer bend inward. Not only will the system of steel rods, wall plates, and anchors stop the bowing motion - given enough time, the walls may even return to their upright position.
An Airtight Egress Lid and Well Replacement in Traverse City, MI
The owners of this home were looking to make an upgrade from their previous window and well. As you can see in the before photo, the old well was made from metal. Metal wells can be a disaster when it comes to erosion and allowing water to come through.
As a replacement, our crew put in the plastic SunHouse well in the after photo. It’s made from inorganic plastic that won’t rust or allow water to permeate through. Neither the crew nor the owners were sure which egress cover would be preferred. So, the crew took both a dome and flat lid with them and allowed the owners to decide. Both options are airtight and won’t allow water or any type of debris to pass through. As you can see, the owner’s elected to go with the dome option. Either option would have been great for the home and will stand tough to water.
