Old Crawl Space
Before starting this project, this was Marcio's crawl space.
Crawl Space Concerns
Under the home there were some rotting supports that were cause for concern.
The homeowners had recently moved in and the existing insulation was old, dirty, and falling apart.
We cleared out the crawl space of all debris and installed an interior drainage channel along the perimeter of the crawl space.
We installed two SmartJacks under an existing beam to support floor joists along the stem wall. We also installed supplemental beams to help support the structure of the home.
In one area of the crawl space, we installed a SmartDrain to collect water above the vapor barrier in case of potential plumbing leaks above it.
We encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace 20 mil vapor barrier and installed a new SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to control humidity.
To protect from water intrusion, we installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. It has three pumps in one to be able to handle a high volume of water with ease.
