Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Damp Crawlspace Transformed in Wilmington, DE

Album Description

This tall crawlspace in Wilmington, DE had lots of problems.  First there was a lot of dampness evaporating up from the floor and from the walls.  This needed to be resolved by the installation of the CleanSpace vapor barrier.  Second, the moisture had caused one of the joist to start rotting and deteriorating.   Attempts had been made in the past to fix this, but they were insufficient.  We repaired it properly using a galvanized steel I-beam with SmartJacks to properly support the joists. SmartJack come with a 25-year, transferable, nationally back, warranty.

There was also a major problem with the insulation.  It had sucked up the moisture from the air and become heavy, which caused it to sag and fall.  There was a lot of mold due to the fact that fiberglass insulation contains organic materials.   The solution was to take it down and haul it away and replace it with SilverGlo around the perimeter. As you can see, the job turned out great and the customers were very happy.
