This customer wanted to make sure his mountain home was protected while he was away. It can be stressful enough worrying about a home that you are living in now, much less one that is several hours away. This customer decided the work was worth it for the peace of mind, as well as the quality in products and excellent service that All-Dry of the Carolinas provides to each and every customer. The home was strictly a crawlspace/CleanSpace job. While we installed a few supplementary products such as a Santa Fe dehumidifier and a SuperSump sump pump, the main focus was that of the CleanSpace encapsulation system.

The "before" picture shows what the basement looked like before any of our products had been installed. You can hardly see it, but they actually do have a crawlspace liner already. However, this is not doing them any good. It is so thin and fragile that it can easily rip and tear just by crawling on it. The other thing about this liner is that it is not properly sealed. If you're looking for something to keep your jeans from getting dirty, that might be the product for you, but if you want real protection from moisture and mold, CleanSpace is the product you need.

The "after" picture shows the crawlspace after our crew had installed the CleanSpace Liner. As you can see, the CleanSpace is laid almost from floor to ceiling. While not all customers and jobs have the CleanSpace go all the way up the wall, this customer was encouraged and wanted to. The only part that is left uncovered is a few inches of wood, for courtesy to other professionals like; pest control and termite inspectors.

Foundation issues can be some of the scariest issues that we see and deal with here at All-Dry of the Carolinas. This home definitely did not have as bad bowing walls as many of the other homes that we see here, because the homeowner was proactive about the issues with their home. However, these small cracks will continue to grow if not watched and taken care of quickly.

One of the biggest causes of bowing walls is the pressure that is created on the outside of the home by the earth, as was the case with this particular house. The type of cracking that can be seen in these pictures is a "stair-step" crack, which is one of the more common types of cracking. One of the things that a lot of people wonder about is the duct tape that the crew puts over the cracks. As you can see between the two photos, the duct tape shows how much the wall has moved and came together.

Wall anchors are able to really make a difference in basement walls, especially because they can be progressively tightened. This means that after they are installed, just months later they can be tightened to provide even more support and bring the wall closer to its original position. It can sometimes be difficult to notice how much the wall anchors really do, but the duct tape certainly makes it much more obvious how much the cracks were closed.

Job Stories From Otto, NC
Foundation Repair with Wall Anchors in Otto, NC

This home in Otto, North Carolina had some pretty serious foundation issues in their basement, mainly the basement walls bowing inwards. This bowing was bad enough, that our Service Design Specialist noticed it from outside the home. In the first picture, our specialist is able to stick his figure under a ledge caused by the bowing walls.

While serious, this issue was something that our company and crews had dealt with many times before. Our specialist knew that a few wall anchors would be more than enough to whip this wall into shape! So our crew got to work on installing the wall anchors. The last three pictures are great action shots and should be cherished because it isn't often that we get shots of the crew working, only what they've accomplished.

Although these pictures aren't in order, they are all vital parts of wall anchor installation. The second picture shows one of our crew members tightening the wall anchor bolt. This helps to keep the wall anchor tight to the wall to prevent any further bowing. The third picture shows the crew actually drilling the hole for the rod that connects the wall anchors. The final picture shows off our crew member doing a little extra cleaning. All of our crews do their very best to leave a customer's home in BETTER condition than we found it in.

We hope that this helps you understand how wall anchors work, just a little better. As the saying says, "a picture is worth a thousand words"! If you have any foundation issues like this home, or crawlspace or basement problems, call us today!

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Otto, NC Home

This mountain home in Otto, North Carolina needed some work done in its crawlspace, mainly the installation of our CleanSpace Liner. While there was some water intrusion into this home, it seemed that this customer wanted peace of mind more than anything. Since he would not be in the house all the time, he wanted to make sure he was protected even when he was not home.

In order to provide him with the best option and protection for the home, we installed a CleanSpace Liner, SantaFe Edge II Dehumidifier, and SuperSump sump pump. These three products together are a great defense against moisture and mold. While they are all very important products, CleanSpace definitely takes the cake. This is because of the protection provides and the redundancy it takes out of the other two products. CleanSpace is great by itself, but more than likely moisture will find its way into the crawlspace through tiny cracks and holes around pipes, wires, and anything else. More than likely, water will find its way under the CleanSpace, whether that be from the ground or from outside the home.

Since it is difficult to overcome nature, we install these other products. We install the SantaFe dehumidifier so that any moisture that does get into the crawlspace, is taken out of the air and sent to the sump pump. We have sump pumps in the crawl space so that the water that comes up from the ground and any that make it through the walls get pumped out. While the standing water may not cause problems in the crawlspace, it could still produce odors and have other effects under the CleanSpace.

We're glad to have helped this Otto resident and hope that anyone seeking basement, crawl space, or foundation repair will give us a call!
