Falling Insulation Means Moisture in this Linville, NC Crawlspace
Crawlspaces are usually wet and smelly, and sagging insulation is generally a sign that a crawlspace has a moisture issue. This crawlspace in Linville, NC had just that problem. The insulation was soaking up the moisture in the space and began to fall from the floor joists. In order to keep the moisture levels controlled in this crawlspace, Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their patented CleanSpace vapor barrier, sealed the vents and installed a SaniDry dehumidifier. This crawlspace is now dry.

Dirt Crawl Space with Moisture Issues in Greensboro, NC

The dirt floor below the home did not have any plastic on the floor or drainage, causing the moisture to seep up into the first floor of the home. Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their patented CleanSpace encapsulation system, which includes a 20 mil. thick vapor barrier, perimeter drainage system, sump pump and dehumidifier. This Greensboro crawl space is now bone dry and structurally sound.
Energy Efficient Windows That Look Great
This home in Greensboro, NC had (4) basement windows that were inefficient and unattractive. The homeowner was concerned that the poorly constructed windows that were currently in the basement would let in cold outside air in the winter, and warm humid air in the summer which causes condensation on the cold surfaces in the basement. Tar Heel Basement Systems installed (4) EverLast Basement Window Inserts in the existing metal window frames of this brick home in Greensboro, NC. The EverLast Basement Window Inserts are a clean-looking energy-efficient solution. It has two panes of Low-E glass, which reduce heat loss by conduction and radiation. A special metallic coating on the inside of the glass functions as a “heat mirror”, allowing visible light in, but reflecting heat. And because it doesn’t open, the window can be sealed up tight to stop air leakage and heat loss by convection.
