This basement has a dirt floor with a thin sheet of plastic covering the floor. This plastic isn't particularly helpful, especially when it comes to moisture issues.
Problems Moisture causes
Here is a picture of one of the support beams in the basement. Our Design Specialist took this picture to show how much damage water can cause in a space. On the beam, there is efflorescence which is what water leaves behind when it dries. Seeing this, our specialist knew something had to be done.
Basement with a plastic liner and old support beams
In this picture, you see rotted wooden beams supporting the upper floor. Our specialist saw this red flag and decided to stall the Smart Jacks.
Originally, the space had exposed brick walls and a dirt floor. In order to combat the moisture issue, our Design Specialist suggested a full encapsulation using CleanSpace liner and CleanSpace Wall.
CleanSpace and CleanSpace Wall with Smart Jacks
Depicted here is another angle of the CleanSpace Wall newly installed and sealed.
This is the final product of the project. We replaced those older beams with our smart jacks.
