For this project we came out and upgraded the basements current window to an Egress window. The material used for this job consisted of a 27 x 45 In-Swing Egress window, Bowman Kemp Metal Egress Well and Plastic Cover. We also installed a Well Duct Drain that connected to their current waterproofing system.
We were reached out to by the buyers of this of this property, while going through home inspections, one of the inspectors had pointed out that the pillars were not stable enough to support the house and they would need to be assessed as soon as possible.
We came out to the property to find the current support system made up of cinder blocks and 2 x 6s and we knew immediately our Smart Jack System was needed for this crawlspace.
We came out and installed 1 Supplemental Steel Beam with 2 Smart Jacks. SmartJack is a high- capacity adjustable steel pier that is designed to stop settling and can even raise your floor back to where it was.
This customer was looking for help improving her dirt floor crawlspace. The space had a strong musty odor and there were definite signs of mold growth. We recommended a crawlspace encapsulation system with our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. First, we started by regrading the ground to redirect any water seepage towards her sump system. Then we removed the old insulation and treated the entire area with our Mold X2 cleaner and botanical. In place of the old insulation we installed our SilverGlo insulated wall panels and RimTight spray foam. Finally, we lined the floor in Cleanspace drainage matting and our Cleanspace liner. This crawlspace is now safer, healthier and more energy efficient.
This homeowner in Catonsville, MD noticed their sump pump wasn't operating properly, so they contacted us for a solution. They knew if they didn't fix this issue, it could be damaging to their home. Our System Design Specialist Jeff provided an inspection and suggested installing one of our sump pumps. Our foreman Jeremy installed our SuperSump Pump System which will effectively pump water out of the basement, and provide peace of mind to the homeowner. We also installed our SaniDry Dehumidifier which will clean and circulate the air in the basement. Since the installation, they haven't experienced any other issues in their home.
For this crawlspace job, we did a Mold X 2 Treatment. Mold X2 is a highly effective cleaner for contaminated surfaces suchs as wood and masonry. While Mold X2 treatments eliminate mold, it does not prevent it from growing back unless the moisture is controlled. With that being said, we had to control the moisture in the crawlspace by installing a CleanSpace Vapor barrier and Drainage Matting, which the matting not only creates a drainage space under the Cleanspace, but also acts as a thermal break, giving some insulation value. And then to keep the crawlspace insulated, we installed SilverGlo which features a radiant barrier that reflects heat back into your crawlspace.
