Vent Covers Seal Up West Branch, MI Crawl Space
The grated, open vents seen at the bottom of the house in the before photo of this West Branch, MI summer home were allowing a lot of moisture to enter the crawl space. The home was built near a lake, and as a result, the soil around the house was very damp. Even the well surrounded well wasn’t much of a match for the damp soil. So much moisture had gotten into the crawl space that the existing vapor barrier was starting to fail. There is really no need for open vents in crawl space, so when the homeowners called us for a solution, our crew went out and installed 6 of the vent covers seen in the after photo. Our vent covers are installed with an airtight seal that won’t allow moisture or humidity to get inside of the crawl space. Not only will they help keep the vapor barrier in the crawl space in better condition, they will also help in the fight against mold, humidity, and even pests that may try to use crawl spaces as homes.
CleanSpace Liner Keeps Moisture Out of West Branch, MI Crawl Space
The owners of this home knew they had to do something when the walls of their crawl space started leaking. The best solution for combating moisture in the crawl space and preventing mold growth is a CleanSpace liner. This liner is 20mil thick, made of many layers of polyester cord reinforcement, making it durable and virtually resistant to tears. CleanSpace is also manufactured with an antimicrobial additive, so no matter how wet the back of the liner gets, no mold will grow. The liner is fixed to the walls, providing a permanent solution to keeping moisture out of crawl space, giving these homeowners peace of mind.
Our Friends in West Branch, MI Invite us Back to Make Their Crawl Space a CleanSpace
Christopher & Christine, homeowners and past clients of ours from West Branch, MI had been struggling with a constantly wet crawl space. They knew that living right near a marshland and having an old unreliable sump pump was not helping their crawlspace concerns. After having their cement Poly-Leveled by Ayers the couple was highly impressed and began planning for our return trip to address their crawl space.
Upon scheduling an appointment and assessing Christopher & Christine’s crawl space needs, we recommended our CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system to help resolve the issues in their crawl space. The CleanSpace encapsulation product is a super thick durable plastic lining that fully seals off the crawl space from the harsh elements it faces below. To supplement the CleanSpace, we also installed the CleanSpace drainage mat to ensure maximum water drainage to the sump pump. With the couple having a broken sump pump, a Triple Safe sump pump was also highly necessary. TripleSafe is a safeguard feature that includes the use of three pumps to ensure this basement will stay dry, even in power outages and severe weather events. In the case of heavy water or primary pump failure, the second and more powerful pump will kick in, if there is a power outage the battery powered UltraSump will take over.
Additionally our friends elected for us to install SilverGlo wall paneling. SilverGlo panels are constructed very differently than other types of insulation. These panels contain tiny graphite particles that permeate its foam insulation; this is what gives the panel that silver shine. These tiny particles serve a functional purpose besides just looks; they reflect heat and lower the material's conductivity for superior R-value insulation. Thanks to this complete crawl space renovation, living near a marshland is no longer a sweat for Christopher & Christine.
