Thomas and Robyn were having moisture problems in their crawl space that were leading to musty odors in their home. Their existing vapor barrier was dingy and was covered in dirt and in some places, standing water. To prevent future moisture issues, we installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump along with drainage trenching along the footing of the interior foundation walls. We then encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace, our highly durable 20-mil. thick crawl space lining. The space is now a clean and healthy environment that Thomas and Robyn plan to use for storage.

This Bellingham home was frequently experiencing problems in the crawl space including water leaks and mold growth, which had led to decayed wood that needed to be replaced. Don and Kerry M., the homeowners, informed the system design specialist that this had been a recurring problem for 15 years and that they had replaced some of the wood already. They were looking for a more permanent solution to their wet crawl space troubles.

We added drainage trenching around the perimeter of the interior footing of the foundation walls to direct captured ground water to the lowest spot in the crawl space where we installed a SmartSump Pump. The SmartSump is equipped with a 1/3 hp cast iron Zoeller pump and a WaterWatch alarm that will sound anytime water reaches a point it shouldn’t. An UltraSump was added as well. The UltraSump Battery Back-up is an additional pump that will activate in the event of an initial pump failure, like in a power outage. We then encapsulated the crawl space with CleanSpace, a highly durable crawl space lining that significantly reduces moisture and humidity levels in the space. CleanSpace also has an antimicrobial agent in the lining that further protects against the growth of mold and mildew. A SaniDry CX Dehumidifier was added into the space to give the homeowner full control over the conditions of the space.

Fred and Diane lived in their Bellingham home since it was built in 1994, and had no plans to leave. Fred checked the crawl space every couple of weeks and was already aware of the problems the space was experiencing; such as water intrusion, falling insulation, and rodent infestation. The couple reached out to us because they wanted a well-insulated crawl space that was moisture-free and practical for storage. After sending out a system design specialist to perform a thorough inspection and consult with the homeowners about what he recommends, Fred and Diane went ahead with the proposal.

We installed drainage trenching along the interior perimeter of the foundation walls to capture any ground water seepage and direct it towards the SmartSump Pump we placed in the lowest point of the space. SilverGlo rigid foam insulation was installed from the top of the stem wall to the floor of the crawl space. Thanks to a patented graphite infusion process, SilverGlo has a higher R-value than standard EPS foam. Its excellent thermal properties make it ideal for insulating crawl space walls because it won’t lose its R-value or be damaged by moisture. We then encapsulated the space with CleanSpace, a highly durable crawl space lining that greatly reduces moisture and humidity levels. Finally, we added a SaniDry XP Dehumidifier to further control the moisture levels in the space. The SaniDry is completely automatic and will activate, deactivate and drain its reservoir with little to no responsibilities to the homeowner.

Job Stories From Bellingham, WA
Crawl Space Encapsulation in Bellingham, WA

Scott and Jennifer N. contacted us because they were interested in the benefits that encapsulating their crawl space could offer. We sent out a system design specialist to perform a free inspection and estimate and found their crawl space strewn with tattered insulation, pools of standing water and evidence of rodents and other unwelcome pests. These Bellingham homeowners were seeking a long-term solution for the multiple problems their crawl space was experiencing and went ahead with the proposal our inspector drew up.

To control the ground water seepage, we added drainage trenching along the interior perimeter of the foundation walls. We also installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump to empty the unwanted seepage through a buried discharge line and out the LawnScape Outlet a safe distance away from the home. We then encapsulated the space in CleanSpace, a highly durable crawl space lining that completely isolates the home from the Earth drastically reducing humidity levels. A SaniDry CX Dehumidifier was also added to further control the moisture vapor.

Drainage Installation in Bellingham Crawl Space

This Bellingham crawl space was neglected throughout its entire existence. It wasn’t until the homeowner was having problems with raccoons and other rodents that someone informed them that their crawl space was a complete mess and full of standing water.

We installed drainage trenching in the space along the perimeter of the foundation walls to capture all the ground water seepage the crawl space was experiencing. To remove the captured water, we added a SmartSump Pump.  The SmartSump is equipped with a high-quality Zoeller 1/3 hp cast iron pump that is capable of pumping out approximately 2500 gallons of water per hour. We then replaced the filth and water covered vapor barrier with a new 6-mils. black polyethylene one.

Daylight basement during moderate or prolonged rain we are getting leaks through the foundation wall. On closer inspection there appears to be several areas that are cracking.

Old crawl space, hard to get to without removing flooring or siding, house shimmed on foundation. 1801 35th st, bham. This is to say standard plastic sheeting, taping etc, not viable for 30% of crawl space without creating new access point. Thanks!

We are in the process of purchasing a home. The home inspection revealed some issues with the crawlspace- vermin and pooling water. I'd like to get an estimate on how much it would cost to remedy these issues. Would someone be able to go to the house and go into the crawlspace to give me a quote? Thank you very much.
G St. in Bellingham
We have a crawl space in pretty good condition--but vapor barrier has gaps and one corner of house does not have vapor barrier at all; some debris from previous construction also there. Seems like an easy job but prefer not to do it myself.
NW Ridge Lane in Bellingham
The crawl space under our house allows insect infestations. We constantly have bugs (spiders and weevils) entering the house. No amount of insect spraying reduces this. I hope that a better barrier will minimize this problem. The crawl space is approximately 3-4 feet in height. In the crawl space there is currently heavy plastic sheeting on the ground as a barrier. Please contact me to arrange a meeting to discuss your services. Thank you.
