Thursday, February 6th, 2020 by Bayleigh Stelling

Challenge

Anacortes, WA, homeowners, George and Karen, began noticing rodent activity in their crawlspace. They wanted an inspection and estimate to clean and improve the conditions under their home. We sent out Jean-Paul Holcomb, System Design Specialist for a free inspection and estimate. He found mold and moisture in corners of the crawlspace.  

Solution

Products we installed:

The two foremen for this project were David Nush and Wyatt Sokolis. The project was completed over a span of three weeks. We were able to completely renovate under his home and stop future groundwater seepage. 

 

  • SmartDrain

    • The SmartDrain System is a crawl space drain with a bottomless liner and an airtight lid. If a plumbing failure occurs, it will drain the water beneath the vapor barrier, preventing it from collecting.

       

  • SaniDry Sedona & Exhaust Duct Kit 

    • The SaniDry Sedona has over 100 pints of moisture per day capacity and will move over 300 cubic feet of dry air per minute around your basement or crawl space. In drying the below-grade area of your home, the SaniDry Sedona will help keep everything dry and healthy.

       

  • CleanSpace

    • This durable vapor barrier slows or prevents the evaporation of ground moisture into the crawl space air. No more rot, rust, mold, odors, insects or other moisture-related problems.

       

  • Foamax 

    • Foamax is an advanced inorganic foam insulation panel designed with a white foil finish on the front and a foil vapor barrier on the back. The white finished face brightens the basement and the vapor barrier helps control basement humidity.

       

  • TerraBlock

    • TerraBlock Crawl Space Floor Insulation is a durable floor insulation product that is custom-designed for the unique environment that exists in a crawl space.

       

  • Supplemental Beam & SmartJacks & SmartJack XT

    • SmartJacks support the floor joists and help to stabilize the crawl space. The new beams by lifting the sagging floor back to its original position.  By doing so, it also prevents any further sinking of the floors and cracking in the walls.
