Crawl Space Encapsulation in Three Rivers, MI

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Three Rivers, MI

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Three Rivers, MI Crawl Space Encapsulation in Three Rivers, MI

We received a call from this customer about his rental property. He was interested in having his crawl space encapsulated. There was no system in place at the time, so the crawl space was left vulnerable to the outside world and all the problems that come along with it. Not to mention, a dirt crawl space in the basement can be a bit of an eyesore.

The goal of crawl space encapsulation is to create a barrier between the space and all things that would do it harm, specifically moisture and mold. Both water vapor and ground water can pass through exposed earth and into your crawl space. The added moisture will hang around your home, raise humidity, and then invite mold to join. To protect this crawl space, the team used our CleanSpace system. The system installed used two products: our drainage matting and the CleanSpace vapor barrier. The matting prevents water from becoming trapped in the space, while the durable vapor barrier keeps water vapor and humidity from entering.

As you can see in the before photo, the windows of this basement hadn’t seen a lot of use over the past few years. In total, there were 6 basement windows and they were all boarded up in a similar fashion as this one. When the homeowners called us up to repair their foundation, they figured it was also a good time to replace their old worn out windows.

The replacement windows in the after photo are what we call our egress window system. The real benefit of the system are the wells that come accompany the windows. Once placed into excavated portions of soil, the inorganic, waterproof wells will shield the newly installed windows from possible leaks and any decay caused by ground water. The owners now have windows they can see out of, and they’re even protected.

This home in Three Rivers, MI was located on a lake, and was a summer retreat for the homeowners. The only problem was that the crawl space was constantly damp. Although no one spent any time down there, encapsulating the crawl space was a step to help improve the air quality of the home and making the space usable for storage. CleanSpace was installed to provide a protective moisture barrier. Its multiple layers of cord reinforced polyester make it tough and long-lasting, ensuring that it will stay in place. By keeping moisture out of the crawl space, CleanSpace eliminates the wet, musty crawl space smell and allows for drier, cleaner air to be moved throughout the home.

Job Stories From Three Rivers, MI
Crawl Space Saved from Musty Smells in Three Rivers, MI

Terri K. of Three Rivers, MI has a crawl space in her home that would give off a strong musty odor. Because of this, she gave us a call to have a professional fix to her problem. 

We installed the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is the perfect solution for any crawl space that has been affected by the elements. This system completely seals off the crawl space from the surrounding nature. No cold air, water, dirt, or moisture has the strength to pass through this stuff. And as an added bonus, CleanSpace is made with anti-microbial properties that prevent mold growth -- no more musty smells!

Complete Waterproofing in Three Rivers, MI

Stan B. of Three Rivers, MI has had water coming into his home from a block wall for years. The wall was previously sealed but it started to bubble again. He did not have a sump pump, but instead had a containment area where the water collected. This said, he called us. 

Our solution to the problem involved three of our favorite products: the SuperSump, WaterGuard, and the SaniDry XP. The SuperSump is a 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.

After that installation, we moved onto the WaterGuard. The WaterGuard French drain system rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once this water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump (the SuperSump, in this case) to be pumped up and outside of Stan's home.

Lastly, we installed the SaniDry XP standing dehumidifier. The SaniDry XP can collect up to 109 liters of water in a day and is small enough to be tucked in a closet. This is a great finishing touch to a basement that suffers from a lot of humidity.

 

Crawl Space Saved in Three Rivers, MI

Anthony B. has a crawlspacethat used to cause a problem in his home. It would make the rest of the home cold and give off a musty odor that drifted up into the living space. So, he called us.

Our solution? The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic liner that seals off Anthony's crawl space from the elements that surround it. No dirt, water, cold air, or moisture will enter the crawl space with this installation. On top of that, CleanSpace is built with anti-microbial properties to prevent any mold growth. 

With CleanSpace, this will be the end to coldness and musty odors from the crawl space.

CleanSpace Transforms Crawl Space in Three Rivers, MI

Ken S. of Three Rivers, MI has a summer home near a lake. Unfortunately, though, the crawl space was consistently damp. This can cause major issues upstairs like sticking doors and windows, peeling paint, and congestion. 

Our fix? The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals a crawl space from the surrounding elements. No cold air, dirt, water, or moisture will get past this system. And as an added bonus, CleanSpace is made with anti-microbial properties to prevent mold growth.

Say hello to a clean crawl space with CleanSpace. 

Complete Waterproofing in Three Rivers, MI Basement

Sara B. from Three Rivers, MI just bought her house. After the first heavy rain there was water coming into her basement. The home was built in 1978 with a poured concrete foundation and it did not have a sump pump before she called us.

Our solution to this water issue? A favorite duo of ours: the SuperSump and WaterGuard. The SuperSump premier sump pump system is a sump pump specifically designed to keep your basement dry for long periods of time. Capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour, this beast is suitable for heavy water intrusion.

After we installed the SuperSump, we moved onto the WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard sits below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that enters into the basement from the exterior. Once that water is collected it is directed to the sump pump -- the SuperSump -- to be pumped up and out of the home.

Say goodbye to a wet basement, Sara.

 

Drainage System Helps Make a Sale in Three Rivers, MI

Jean was in the process of buying her neighbor’s cottage when she noticed water coming in the corner of the basement during an inspection. The carpet near the corner of the basement was soaked for two feet around the perimeter. Occasionally, the water flowed around the basement and even threatened the stairwell cove. Jean was ready to do whatever it took to fix up the cottage, so she gave a call to Ayers Basement System for a solution.

The way to keep water out of the basement was with a full drainage system. Using a perimeter drainage system, the crew was able to protect the carpet. The WaterGuard perimeter drain sits around the edges of the basement under the concrete floor to collect any water that leaks down the walls. After installing the WaterGuard system, the crew moved on to protecting the stairwell. They placed a TrenchDrain outside of the stairs that will stop any water from reaching all the way to the cove. This home is now all set for Jean to purchase.

PolyLevel and Piers Raise a Sinking Garage in Three Rivers, MI

When Larry called us, part of his garage was starting to sink. He first became aware of the problem when he noticed a large crack on the slab floor. Our system design specialist went out to Three Rivers, MI to have a look and found that the problem was even worse than Larry thought. After noticing the way the walls were separating from the slab floor at the spot of the settling, he determined that the garage would need two different repairs to save it. Larry was ready to do whatever it took to repair the garage, but the installation would have to wait until he had time to clean it out.

After a few months passed, Larry called us again and announced he was ready to move forward with the project. Sinking foundations and concrete slabs occur when the soil below isn’t strong enough to hold up the structures and are pushed down as a result. The crew decided to handle the settling floor slab first. To do so, they injected PolyLevel foam below the sinking corner. PolyLevel is an ultra-strong, waterproof foam that replaces the sunken soil when injected. As PolyLevel expands to fill the void, the slab rises. Once the PolyLevel injection was completed, the crew moved on to raising the garage foundation. Our design specialist had found that only one of Larry’s walls was actually sinking, so the crew installed 6 helical piers under that side. The first step was excavating the soil next to the wall. After the crew had gained access to the foundation below, they drove the piers into deeper, more stable soil. This way the piers have a dependable base and so does the foundation. The piers were then attached to the garage wall and the soil backfilled.

After it was all over, Larry’s garage was once again fully above ground and leveled. It was a lengthy process, but we think Larry would agree that the peace of mind was worth it.

During heavy rains, we get water in our finished basement in two areas. Not tons of water, but enough to warp/stain the baseboards and begin to mold. There is a drain in the unfinished area and we suspect water may be coming up through it.
