Drooping insulation, 6mil. vapor barrier and open vents were a recipe for a nasty, damp crawl space. After several attempts of correcting the moisture problem themselves, the Elon, NC homeowners were ready for professional help!
Tar Heel Basement Systems transformed the nasty crawl space into a dry and conditioned storage space below the home. The molded fiberglass insulation and thin vapor barrier was removed allowing the crew to begin the healthy transformation. Sealing off the home from the exposed dirt below was key to preventing ground moisture from reaching the living area. This was accomplished by installing the 20mil CrawlSeal Encapsulation System. In order to prevent future mold growth, the team installed the self-draining Aprilaire dehumidifier.
