Water was pushing through the cinderblock walls of this crawl space and there was groundwater seepage during heavy rains. In order to fully protect this crawl space from flooding, Tar Heel Basement Systems installed a SafeDri™ Triple Sump Pump System (with a battery backup) in the low spot of the crawl space. The CrawlSeal wall liner will allow any water coming through the walls to drain behind it and into the drainage system. This space will now stay dry during the heaviest of rain storms and humid months.
Crawl Space Repair Before & After Photos
This homeowner was concerned that the worn, thin plastic that was placed on the dirt crawlspace floor would be a deal breaker for potential buyers of this Newland, NC home. In order to increase the property value and integrity of the home, Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their patented CrawlSeal Crawlspace Encapsulation System, which included sealing the crawlspace with a 20 mil. think vapor barrier and conditioning the air with a Tar Heel dehumidifier.
This condo had a moisture issue that seemed to be getting worse. The homeowner noticed the issue about 6 months ago and wanted to address the problem before it caused major damage to his home. Tar Heel Basement Systems regraded the dirt floor and dug a trench against the footer to help collect groundwater seepage. Next, Scott and his team sealed the exposed dirt floor and cinder block walls, and wrapped (8) crawl space piers using CrawlSeal liner. Lastly, the Tar Heel installation crew sealed the crawl space vents and turned on the dehumidifier to condition this newly improved crawl space.
