This crawlspace was a dark and scary area when this homeowner first called All-Dry of the Carolinas. They had already tried to have a crawlspace liner installed in their crawlspace, but it just wasn't doing the job for them. These DIY crawl space solutions generally do not work very well because of a few reasons; they are not thick enough, and they usually aren't sealed correctly. This is important because if the area isn't sealed properly, then the water vapor is still able to get into the crawlspace and cause problems.

The "before" photo is how the crawl space looked when our System Design Specialist first inspected the home. Before the work was done, the crawlspace was a dark, scary area that had been trashed. The black liner absorbs most of the light and makes the crawl space much darker. There is also dirt and debris all throughout the crawlspace, caused by water intrusion, unsealed vents, and other issues.

The "after" photo shows a much different story, the CleanSpace Liner makes a huge difference in this space. First off, you can actually see under the house! The white liner does a great job at reflecting most of the light, which brightens the space. This makes it easier to see, work, and move under a home! Those are just the visual benefits of the product! What CleanSpace really does is keeps the water vapor from getting into the crawlspace. One way is by its thickness, it is a 20 mm thick liner, which does an excellent job of keeping the moisture out. Another way is through the sealing of the CleanSpace liner to the wall, this is extra important because those are really the only areas where moisture can come through.

If you've looked at any other content on our site, you may have seen wall anchors in action. This before and after is going to be a little different than some of the others. This is going to look at more of the cleanup, then the installation of the wall anchors. For this particular project, we had the crew had to install three wall anchors under the garage floor.

The "before" picture shows what it looked like once the crew had cut out the sections for the wall anchors to be installed, and had already excavated the dirt down to the level needed to install the wall anchor. As you can see, this can be a very messy process, especially in a garage. We always do our best to keep wherever we are working clean (as we can), and always clean-up after ourselves! In this garage, there was a tarp laid out to hold as much of the dirt as possible, to keep the floor from getting too dirty.

The "after" picture is a much different story than from before. The biggest difference is the fact there aren't deep holes in the middle of the garage or a huge pile of dirt. Jokes aside, our crew filled the holes back with the dirt, then poured some new concrete back into the holes. Although there will be a few "discolored" areas in this garage, it is all worth it in the end. First off, the only other option would be to rip up the garage floor and completely replace it, and two; the cuts must be made so that the outside wall doesn't get any worse.

Many people don't realize that the entrance to a crawlspace is very important. While water usually gets into crawlspaces through the floor and walls of the crawlspace, another area that can cause a lot of problems for a crawlspace is the entrance. Quite often, crawlspace doors have gaps that can let water and air into the crawlspace. 

This was the case for this particular homeowner. They had their crawlspace encapsulated, which is an enormous first step for any home, but at the time, they had not replaced the entrance. While this didn't cause too many problems for the homeowner, they wanted to make sure that they were covered. 

While the old crawlspace door may have blended in a little more, it didn't provide nearly as much protection as The new EverLast door that was installed by our crew. The EverLast Door creates an airtight seal that prevents air and water vapor from getting into the crawlspace. The seal is created by tightening down each of the toggle bolts, which tighten the door down and helps seal any gaps.

Job Stories From Highlands, NC
Cracking Home Foundation in Highlands, NC

While water intrusion issues in crawlspaces and basements can be extremely frustrating and sometimes harmful to a person's health, foundation issues are on a whole other level of safety. While it may take a long time for a foundation issue to really do serious damage to a home, if this damage is done, it can ruin whole parts of a home. Walls collapsing and foundation issues can cost an enormous amount of money to get repaired, so taking care of them early is certainly the way to go.

This homeowner probably should have called sooner than he did, but he still caught the problem before it got too bad. This was a more unique case because of the location of the crack, which was right on the edge of the home's foundation, that was also connected to a retaining wall. Since this was the case, our System Design Specialist suggested having wall anchors installed all along the retaining wall, as well as a few installed on the foundation wall of the house under the garage.

The first photo shows off one of the major cracks that was the homeowner's concern when he first contacted us, this crack can also be seen in the second picture. The cracking was mainly caused by the retaining wall being pushed out by the driveway. In order to correct this, the wall anchors were installed and tightened to slowly pull the wall back to its original position. This is done by digging holes on the other (driveway) side of the wall and placing an anchor plate in it. A long rod is them put through the wall and ground until it can be connected to the plate. After this is done for all of the anchors, they are tightened.

If you're noticing cracks around your home, either inside or out, give us a call at 864-984-2308 or fill out a customer contact form so that we can call you back and set up a free estimate with one of our great Systems Design Specialists!

CleanSpace Installed in Wet Highlands, NC Crawlspace

The owner of this home started to notice a strange smell coming from their crawlspace, and when it was not going away, they decided to give the experts a call. One of our Systems Design Specialists went out to this home to inspect the crawlspace, and come up with a solution to solve the homeowner's problems. Our Specialists go through a lot of training to prepare them for every problem or scenario that they may run into, so this Specialist knew exactly what to do!

This was a relatively simple solution in order to encapsulate the are and provide a safe and healthy crawlspace for the owners of the home. The first couple pictures show what the crawlspace looked like before our crew got to the house to install the CleanSpace liner. While there are no obvious areas of water or water intrusion. There are a few areas where you can see mud, mostly around the perimeter of the crawlspace in the first two pictures. This is partially where the strange smell was coming from.

The final two pictures show what the crawlspace looks like after our crew installed the CleanSpace liner, as well as a dehumidifier. The CleanSpace under this home completely sealed the floor and walls, so that no water vapor could get into the crawlspace. While the dehumidifier is not in any of the pictures, it was installed and is there in order to keep the humidity level of the crawlspace at a level that doesn't allow for mold or mildew growth.
