Cottage Crawl Space meets CleanSpace in Kewadin, MI

Cottage Crawl Space meets CleanSpace in Kewadin, MI Cottage Crawl Space meets CleanSpace in Kewadin, MI

This family cottage was recently passed down and the new owner decided her first change to the property would be to waterproof the crawl space. She noticed standing water was pooling and was concerned that the proximity of the cottage to the lake would cause it to happen again. Though when she called she was only looking for a sump pump, our system design specialist explained that if only a pump was installed the crawl space would still be at risk. That’s why when the crew went out they installed a full crawl space encapsulation to go along with the sump pump.

One of the great benefits of CleanSpace is its ability to be wrapped around everything in a crawl space. From walls to floors and piers, it doesn’t matter because CleanSpace can do it all. With a new SmartSump also installed, water will be swiftly discharged if it penetrates the dirt floor or the block walls. CleanSpace will keep that water and any moisture from reaching the structural integrity of the cottage. The plastic liner is ultra-durable and inorganic so mold won’t grow on it or the wooden piers as it was doing in the past. Thanks to CleanSpace, this family cottage is ready to be enjoyed once again.

 It’s frustrating to have crawl space problems in the home you live in every day, but it’s equally frustrating to have them in a vacation home. This cottage up north in Kewadin, MI was a retreat for East Lansing, MI residents, so they knew they had to do something when they realized the crawl space of the cottage was damp and starting to get moldy.

Our team visited the cottage and got right to work encapsulating the crawl space. We added Terrablock insulation on the floors and SilverGlo insulation to the walls to keep the crawl space warm before installing CleanSpace. This durable liner will provide a barrier to moisture and the antimicrobial additive that’s manufactured into the liner will keep mold away. Adding a SaniDry dehumidifier to eliminate the moisture in the air was the last step to making this cottage nice and dry.

Shifts in foundation occur naturally as soil moves, harsh weather conditions are experienced, there is flooding in your backyard, you name it. But bowing walls are something to take seriously as they directly impact the integrity of the foundation of your home.

This basement in Kewadin, MI was experiencing some bowing so we installed our PowerBrace system to fix the problem. The PowerBrace can counteract bowing and help walls straighten to their original position by gradually tightening over time. The beams are attached to the ceiling and the foundation of the floor, shown in the after photo. The steel I-beams are zinc coated and never rot, allowing the basement to maintain a clean and finished look.

Job Stories From Kewadin, MI
Flooding Basement in Kewadin, MI

Holly J. of Kewadin, MI had water flooding into her basement for two months straight before she finally reached out to us for help.

We installed two great waterproofing products for this job: the SuperSump premier sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. The SuperSump sump pump specifically designed to keep your basement dry for long periods of time. Capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour, it is suitable for heavy water intrusion.

The WaterGuard drain rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, catching all the water that seeps into the basement from the walls. After the water is in the drain it is directed to the sump pump -- the SuperSump -- to be pumped up and out of the basement. 

SmartSump Keeps Kewadin, MI Crawl Space Dry

Daniel F. of Kewdin, MI used to have a lot of water come into his crawl space seasonally. Because of all the issues this water's moisture can cause, Daniel gave us a call to get a professional solution.

Our fix? The SmartSump crawl space sump pump system. The SmartSump is specifically designed for crawl spaces and can provide all the protection you need from leaks and floods. The SmartSump comes equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller primary pump with the option of adding an UltraSump Battery Backup sump pump. 

Dirty, Flooded Crawl Space Transformed in Kewadin, MI

Mekia B. of Kewadin, MI has a home near a lake, making her crawl space filled with water. This can be a serious problem, allowing for moisture to travel up into the home. This can lead to peeling paint, sticking doors and windows, etc. Thus, Mekia called us.

Our solution? The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system and the SmartSump crawl space sump pump system. We began the project by installing the CleanSpace system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off the crawl space form all surrounding elements. No cold air, moisture, dirt, or water will stand a chance with the CleanSpace in place. CleanSpace is also developed with anti-microbial properties that prevent mold growth.

The SmartSump is specifically designed for crawl spaces and can provide all the protection you need from leaks and floods. This sump pump is designed to fit with the CleanSpace liner and has a sump alarm to ensure you are always aware of any water in your crawl space.

Say goodbye to your wet, dirty crawl space, Mekia!

Double Drains for a Kewadin, MI Lake Home

Daniel and Elaine had recently purchased a new lake home. During the sale, the past owners let them know that the two crawl spaces took in water seasonally. So when they moved into their new home, Daniel and Elaine immediately called a contractor out to install a vapor barrier in one of the crawl spaces. They knew they would have to do something to keep water out of the other crawl space as well, but before they could, they had to deal with another water issue on the other side of the home. Shortly after moving in, they discovered that water would flow down their driveway and into the garage. Hoping to kill two birds with one stone, they called up the waterproofing experts.

Instead of an additional vapor barrier, this time around Daniel and Elaine asked for a drain and sump pump in the crawl space to get water out. The drain was laid around the perimeter and middle of the crawl space to catch any water that leaked through the walls or floor. Once the drain was installed, the crew covered it with stones to protect it from potential clogs while allowing for easy passage of liquid. The sump will then direct the water to a lawnscape outlet outside. The water that had been leaking into Daniel and Elaine’s garage will meet a similar fate. Before reaching the garage, then water will enter a trench drain that sits in front of the garage and then flow to a different lawnscape outlet. With two brand new drain system, Daniel and Elaine won't have to worry about water entering any part of their new lake home.
