This homeowner's crawlspace had experienced extensive humidity and moisture damage to her floor joists and insulation. It was evident that the space needed to be looked into as soon as possible. Tar Heel Basement Systems solved her problems by sealing the space with a CleanSpace vapor barrier, lining the walls with SilverGlo insulation and installing a new sump pump and dehumidifier. This combination of products will remove any moisture from the space, protecting and securing it from the outside environment. The moldy insulation was also removed from under the floor boards. The THBS crew left the home knowing that the crawlspace was healthier and that the homeowner would be much happier with her home.
This crawl space in Reidsville, NC was a perfect environment for mold growth, wood rot and critters. The original vapor barrier (6 mil plastic) was only covering parts of the dirt floor, allowing moisture from the soil into the crawl space. This moisture then causes insulation to fall, mold to grow and wood to rot. One of the homeowner's main concerns was the bad odor that was permeating from the crawl space. Often times, that "musty crawl space smell" is an indication that there is mold in the space.
Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their patented CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. The 20 mil thick CleanSpace vapor barrier is the strongest liner in the industry and isolates the home from the damp earth below. Once the crawl space was sealed (vents closed and new doors installed) the crew installed a SaniDry CX crawl space air system to keep the relative humidity below 55%. Now that this crawl space is a controlled, dry environment, there should be no more mold and no more nasty odors.
The crawl space in this Reidsville, NC home had a thin 6mil. vapor barrier that was losing its grip, literally. The liner had begun to fail, providing no protection for the homeowner.
Tar Heel Basement Systems installed the patented, CleanSpace 20mil liner that completely separates the home from the earth below and will not deteriorate like the previous vapor barrier. This homeowner is excited to have a healthy, energy efficient crawl space thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems!
The finished basement in this Reidsville, NC home had a finished basement with drywall and carpet. Overtime, the basement began to leak after heavy rains around the base of the drywall and carpeted floor. The homeowner wanted to prevent mold growth from taking over their finished basement by waterproofing the basement and installing new finishing material.
Tar Heel Basement Systems installed the WaterGuard and TripleSafe Basement Waterproofing System along the entire perimeter of the basement. The drywall that was previously affected by the water damage was replaced with the EverLast Wall Restoration Panels. Unlike drywall, EverLast Wall Panels are made of antimicrobial materials and will never rot or mold. The carpet was replaced with the anti-mold ThermalDry Basement Flooring.
The dirt floor cellar under this Reidsville, NC home was constantly damp and causing the energy bill to spike during the winter months. The exposed dirt floor and open vents were allowing for cold air to reach the living area above.
Tar Heel Basement Systems transformed the space into a dry and conditioned area using the CleanSpace Encapsulation System. The 20mil CleanSpace liner was able to completely separate the home from the exposed dirt below and seal the open vents. The once scary space is now bright and dry!
